2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Second Basemen (Part 1)

New, 2 comments

The Fake Teams writers rank the Top 15 men at the keystone for 2019.

MLB: New York Yankees at Kansas City Royals Peter G. Aiken

Positional weeks are in full swing (pun intended) here at Fake Teams. So far you can read your heart out with:

Catcher Week

First Base Week

All week this week we will discuss the keystone, and right off the bat (okay I’ll stop now) I’ll tell you it feels a little thin. But we’ll have more on that in our State of the Position later today. For now, let’s hop into some rankings. There’s a clear Top 15 from our writers here at Fake Teams, as there’s a cluster from Yoan Moncada to Lourdes Gurriel Jr. where six guys are ranked within three picks of each other (based on average ranking). The 16th guy in our rankings has an average rank of 16, which is a big drop from Gurriel Jr. So the young Blue Jay marks the end of a tier, if you will.

You can find out who that mystery man is tomorrow in Part 2 of our rankings. For now, send us your hate mail or comments about our Top 15. And hit up the poll below. Who do you like from our “cluster?”
