Some fantasy positions are weaker than others but third base is not one of them. The top ten is absolutely loaded with talent so if you don’t draft one of the top three (or five), you will be just fine. Here are a couple of names who just missed out on the top ten who would still be good picks.
Evan Longoria was a top-three fantasy third baseman just a few years ago but after a few down years for his standards, he falls out of my top ten. You can depend on “Longo” as he’s played at least 160 games the last three seasons. He has also hit 20 or more home runs each year in that time frame, including 21 last year.
Mike Moustakas had a breakout year in 2015 (.284 batting average, 22 home runs, 82 RBIs). The Kansas City Royals will continue to get on base at a high rate so if “Moose” can have a repeat of 2015 this season, he will be a steal late in the draft.
Now, on to the top ten.
