If you play in 15-team leagues, outfield options can dry up in a hurry. Don’t believe me? Do the math! In your 15-teamer over at the NFBC, each team starts five guys. That’s a cool 75 outfielders, and it doesn’t include maybe half those teams sliding an outfielder into a utility slot. Also, many outfield-eligible players are inserted at other positions. Are you really drafting guys like Whit Merrifield, Tommy Edman, Ketel Marte, Kris Bryant, Ryan Mountcastle, Daulton Varsho, Chris Taylor, and a host of others to fill your outfield slots? I don’t think so.

Make no mistake, things can get dicey here in a hurry. And many of the upper echelon outfielders are your coveted power/speed guys. I think you should step into this position early on in your 2022 fantasy baseball leagues.
