Third Base Rankings

Time to post up the third baseman rankings.  These dollar values apply to 5x5 mixed leagues with the standard categories and roster size.  I used 20 games for eligibility.

Those who had between 10-19 games played at 3B in 2008: Miguel Cabrera ($27.84), Russell Martin ($8.71), Felipe Lopez ($3.75), and Pablo Sandoval ($0.49).  On to the rankings, draft round in parentheses:

  1. Alex Rodriguez - $35.14 (1)
  2. David Wright - $34.78 (1)
  3. Chris Davis - $18.22 (6)
  4. Aramis Ramirez - $17.45 (3)
  5. Evan Longoria - $16.78 (2)
  6. Garrett Atkins - $14.21 (7)
  7. Chipper Jones - $12.99 (5)
  8. Kevin Youkilis - $12.92 (4)
  9. Mark Reynolds - $11.27 (25)
  10. Adrian Beltre - $11.16 (18)
  11. Chone Figgins - $8.80 (7)
  12. Ryan Zimmerman - $8.52 (9)
  13. Aubrey Huff - $8.47 (8)
  14. Edwin Encarnacion - $8.20 (10)
  15. Alex Gordon - $7.67 (14)
  16. Carlos Guillen - $6.40 (21)
  17. Kevin Kouzmanoff - $6.17 (27)
  18. Mark DeRosa - $5.10 (16)
  19. Jorge Cantu - $3.83 (13)
  20. Ty Wigginton - $3.25 (18)
  21. Troy Glaus - $2.24 (25)
  22. Casey Blake - $1.46 (24)
  23. Hank Blalock - $0.88 (18)
  24. Melvin Mora - $0.36 (19)

Just missed the cut: Mike Lowell, Ian Stewart.

Clearly Longoria, Jones, Youkilis, Huff, and Cantu are being drafted based on their strong 2008 seasons.  Do you see any of these five regressing?

I like Davis, but the sixth round is usually not the place for a sleeper.  Atkins, Reynolds, and Beltre provide solid veteran value, though Atkins carries trade risk.  The late-round upside plays: Encarnacion (26 years old) and Gordon (25 years old).  Davis, Longoria, and Zimmerman are also capable of monster fantasy years but at those draft positions you're almost counting on it.
