Fantasy Baseball: Top 30 Third Base Rankings for 2016

New, 6 comments

Ray updates his top 30 third baseman for 2016, where the top four at the position are going in the first round of NFBC drafts. The position is deep with a solid mix of young, rising stars and aging veterans.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The fantasy baseball writers here at Fake Teams will begin our annual Consensus Position Rankings later this month, and I will let you know the schedule once it is finalized, but until then, here are my updated Third Base rankings for 2016.

I will be updating my position rankings all week. In addition to my rankings, I will be offering mixed league auction values in the "$ Value" column. You may see that some players have auction values higher than the values of players ranked ahead of them. This is the case, as some players will have more "helium" heading into drafts than others, and that helium may push their draft day auction value higher than one would expect.

Keep in mind, that every league is different, so the auction values below may not make sense for your particular league. I am using a 12 team, mixed league as my basis for the values. Those of you in keeper leagues may see the auction values of certain players be higher or lower than what is presented below. These should only be used as a baseline for your auctions.

Feel free to ask questions about the ranking or the auction values in the comments below.

Here are links to my other Top 30 rankings published earlier this week:
