Fantasy Baseball 2022 First Base Rankings

The first base position is simpler than most. Instead of focusing on roster construction and teams needs, you know what you are getting out of your first base position homers and RBI. As such we really prioritize power in these rankings. Both the universal DH and post-lockout player movement have opened up at-bats for a number of really interesting players so we have a lot to choose from here.

ADP Targets

Pete Alonso (46) offers a ton of pop and comes at a slight discount compared to Vladito and Matt Olson…. Rhys Hoskins (131) should be healthy to stat the year and will hit near the top of a lineup that added significant thumb in the offseason…  Joey Votto (127) continues to rake into his golden years… We’re willing to see if Luke Voit (242) can recapture the power stroke of 2020 as he moves to San Diego.

ADP Fades

I like Jared Walsh (112) as a player, but the price is too steep… DJ LaMahieu (118) just doesn’t fit the bill as a first baseman but can work fine as a roster piece to plug in elsewhere.
