Fantasy Baseball 2017: Updated First Base Rankings

Ray updates his early 2017 first base rankings, adding Albert Pujols and Daniel Murphy to his rankings.

A quick update to my EARLY 2017 first base rankings. In my first stab at ranking first baseman for 2017, I failed to rank Angels first baseman Albert Pujols and Nationals infielder Daniel Murphy, who did get 201 games at the position in 2016.

Before I take a look at my updated first base rankings, here are my early catcher rankings:
