It's been a question in the fantasy baseball world for years. How much extra value should be added to players who are multi-position eligible? While I believe the answer is always evolving and changing as the player pool morphs each year, there are certainly some players who should be moved up your draft boards in 2017 due to their versatility.
The type of eligibility also matters when determining how far up your draft list to bump a player. For example, a shortstop/second base (SS/2B) eligible player is not nearly as valuable as a shortstop/outfield (SS/OF) eligible player. This post will focus on the 10 best players who enter the 2017 fantasy baseball season with multi-position eligibility. We'll cover 11 through 20 in a subsequent post. In the future we will also look at players who should easily gain five games played at a new position in 2017 and could be sneaky future multi-position eligible adds at the draft (think Danny Valencia who should see plenty of time at first base for the Mariners this season, along with his third base and outfield eligibility currently.)
For the purpose of this article standard 20-games played last season will be used to determine eligibility.
