Fantasy Baseball Outfield Rankings (Part 1)

The Fake Teams writers rank the Top 40 outfielders for 2019.

MLB: San Francisco Giants at St. Louis Cardinals
Meet Harrison Bader.
Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Super Bowl is now far in the rear view, and positional weeks are soon to suffer the same fate. This is our last hitting position to cover, with starters and relievers to follow in the coming weeks. After that, it will be time for some MLB DFS, The Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational, and the first inaugural Fake Teams and Friends 5x5 fantasy baseball league!

In the outfield we have the standard pair at the top, as none of the five of us were silly enough to put anyone ahead of Mike Trout. Today is our best 40 men, and tomorrow we’ll offer up 41-80. If you can’t find a guy in the Top 80, I’m worried for your fake team.

As always, let us know who we are too high or low on, and circle back around for Mark’s bold predictions this afternoon.
