2008 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers: Third Basemen

Sleepers, undervalued, profitable players, call 'em what you will.  In general, some guys who may not be getting enough respect in your mixed league.

  • We recently talked about Alex Gordon, who could certainly have fifth-round value this year.
  • Edwin Encarnacion looks like a slight bargain as a 15th round pick.  .290-25-90-85-10 wouldn't be out of the question.
  • Kevin Kouzmanoff in the 21st round is solid.  He could match EE's upside projection, minus the steals.  The Padres kind of need him to.
  • Josh Fields isn't necessarily chopped liver because he's starting the season in Triple A.  It's a long season, a lot can happen.  He could still get 500 ABs and hit 25 homers with 10 swipes.  Same goes for Evan Longoria, minus the swipes.  But when you see everyone going nuts over Longoria remember that guys like Fields, Mark Reynolds, and Kouz can probably match him this year.
  • Hank Blalock has plenty of upside in the 20th round. 
  • Some feel Ty Wigginton could pop 30 homers (I don't).
  • I like Chase Headley as a deep sleeper.
