Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 75 Outfielders for 2018

The Fake Teams writers give you their Top 75 in the outfield.

MLB: Spring Training-St. Louis Cardinals at Boston Red Sox Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It’s outfielder week here at Fake Teams...all week long!

Since draft season is upon us, on Monday Eddy offered his advice to the neophytes among you. If you’ve never journeyed into fake baseball and think you’d like to try, I suggest you give Eddy’s effort a try.

We’ve also created a stream that allows you to follow all of our outfield content for the week by following this link. You can find the state of the position, Eddy’s three-tier piece, Brian’s tiered rankings analysis, and Punk’s outfield targets. And later today, Joe will offer up his “sleepers.” I use quotes because I know the term is overused. But it is what it is.

And that brings us to the task at hand, which is ranking eleventy billion outfielders. Can you tell I dislike rankings? I normally survive by comparing players to each other and by grouping them into tiers. Still, the people like rankings, so here we are. So really, if you’re reading this, it’s your fault I labored over Randal Grichuk vs. Corey Dickerson for far too long last night (Grichuk by a hair). Anyway, let’s get to it. You may haggle with our choices in the comments below. We welcome your evisceration.
