The Fake Teams writers rank the keystone.

The Super Bowl is over, and Tom Brady is still the greatest quarterback of all time. Duh.

The best part of all of yesterday, though, is that it’s officially fantasy baseball season. No one can argue anymore. Maybe you had a decent argument on Sunday, when there was one remaining football game. Today, though? You got nothin’. IT’S BASEBALL SEASON.

Already in the books here at Fake Teams are Catcher Week and First Base Week. Here is the full schedule:

2020 Positional Weeks Schedule

Position Week
Position Week
Catcher Jan 25 - Jan 29
First Base Feb 1 - Feb 5
Second Base Feb 8 - Feb 12
Third Base Feb 15 - Feb 19
Shortstop Feb 22 - Feb 26
Outfield Mar 1 - Mar 5
Starters Mar 8 to Mar 12
RPs/Draft Guide Mar 15 - Mar 19

I’m no genius, but that makes it “Ozzie Albies Week,” all week long. And each positional week begins with our consensus rankings. So without further ado, feast your eyes on the keystone and leave your hate mail for us in the comments. I know I’ll have some choice words for every one of these guys pushing Albies down to No. 2...
