2022 First Base Rankings (11/25/21)
Here are my current 2022 ranks for first base in 15-team, 50-round draft-and-hold leagues. NFBC Rank reflects drafts through 11/24/21.
|1.||Vladimir Guerrero Jr.||6.4|
|27.||LaMonte Wade Jr.||298.3|
Some players are receiving boosts due to multi-position eligibility: Tyler Stephenson, Jake Cronenworth, DJ LeMahieu, etc. I currently have Tyler Stephenson just outside the top 40 if ranking solely as a first baseman (in other words, he’s a catcher only).
I believe there is a good chance Pete Alonso will outperform Freddie Freeman this year, which is why I am avoiding the latter in the first round, and happily planting a flag with the polar bear.
Can’t quit Miguel Sano. He provides value at his normal draft slot as long as you’re prepared for the hit to batting average.
As is my usual approach, I will be passing on Frank Schwindel in every draft at anywhere near his current draft slot. On the other hand, give me Miguel Sano, Jesus Aguilar, and Wilmer Flores for my corner infield slot.
