Outfield Rankings

Next up, our outfielder rankings.  These dollar values apply to 5x5 mixed leagues with the standard categories and roster size.  I used 20 games for eligibility.  These rankings are extra-tentative since tweaks in playing time could change things quite a bit.

Just missed: Aaron Rowand, Cody Ross, Daniel Murphy, Kosuke Fukudome, Hideki Matsui, Juan Pierre, David Murphy, Chris Dickerson, Travis Snider, Chase Headley.

Guys I don't like at their current draft positions: Hamilton, Quentin, Ichiro, Nady, and Burrell.

Potential bargains: Kemp, Bruce, Werth, Pence, Cruz, Jones, Jackson, and Spilborghs.

For certain guys in their early 20s, I'd use the dollar values as a mere suggestion.  We know guys like Bruce, Upton, and Jones are capable of breakout years.
