It’s no secret that there are a lot of great fantasy options in the outfield. The position is deep as hell, which is why I always tell people not to go too crazy overvaluing the top OFs. Sure there’s something comforting about selecting Matt Kemp or Ryan Braun with your first round pick knowing that you will get dynamite production, but doing so comes at a cost to the rest of your roster. Let’s put it this way, if I spend my first three picks on a SS, 2B, and 3B, and wait until the last three rounds to create my outfield, I can still yield a competitive team. Show me a fantasy owner who goes all OF early, and I’ll show you a fantasy owner who has more gaping holes than a gaggle of freshly DP’d porn stars.
On the flip side, the depth of the OF position presents a lot of intriguing possibilities in the mid-to-late rounds. That is why we have 128 players ranked for this edition of “Tiers, Not Fears.” I hope you brought a bar of soap, because it’s about to get real dirty.
