2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: The Top 30 Outfielders

Unlike third base and shortstop this year, outfield is extremely deep. In 2010, the average top-40 fantasy outfielder hit 22 homers, stole 20 base, scored 88 runs, knocked in 82 RBIs and hit .285. This speaks volumes to the depth of the position. While first- and second-round talents such as Braun, Crawford, CarGo, Holliday and Kemp are exciting to own, you’re probably better off filling your infield spots early in the draft. The likes of Alex Rios, Jacoby Ellsbury, Drew Stubbs, Ichiro Suzuki, Andre Ethier, Jay Bruce, Hunter Pence and Nick Markakis can all be drafted much later in the draft, and offer valuable production. Here’s the top 30...

2011 Fantasy Projections, No. 35: How Good Can Atlanta Braves’ Jason Heyward Be In His Age-21 Season?

Jason Heyward proved to be as good as advertised last year, as the highly-touted rookie hit .277 with 18 HRs and 11 steals.

The only knock on Heyward is an issue that’s been bothering him since the minors: injuries. Heyward missed 99 minor-league games in 2009 due to oblique and hip injuries and a jammed heel. His Arizona Fall League was then limited due to a strained hamstring and back inflammation. Last May, Heyward battled through a groin injury. In June, he played through a thumb injury for three weeks while his batting average dropped nearly 40 points. He eventually spent three weeks on the DL...
