2021 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 40 Third Basemen

The Fake Teams writers rank the hot corner for 2021.

Let’s recap the positions so far, eh? Catcher is still a nightmare, though it may offer more depth than in recent years. First base, too, appears to be headed for a rebound in 2021. Second base looks paper thin, with a “big three” and then a ton of question marks.

Third base is similar to the other corner, though. It’s got a good bit of depth, and (I would argue) more talent at the top and in the middle. There are a lot of bats I like, with one obvious example being that you can land Josh Donaldson after pick 200...

Anyway, as usual, we invite you to hate on us in the comments. Apparently this is an anti-Biggio dot com in 2021. I had no idea...
