RotoGraphs Consensus Ranks: First Base

Posted By Eno Sarris On February 19, 2014 @ 1:44 pm In Featured,First Base,Rankings | 56 Comments

Time for the first basemen! At least one entrant here will cause some consternation, but it’s probably a good time to remember that the bar for offense at first base is incredibly high. The 15th-ranked first baseman this year might hit .275 with 30 homers. Heck, the 20th-rhanked guy could do that.

So enjoy this list twice. They’ll probably fill two (to three) positions on your roster.

Rankings based on 5×5 roto, 12 teams, single-catcher with Middle Infield and Corner Infield spots, 14 hitters and 9 pitchers. Each ranker had their own mix of projections and intuition.
