Fantasy Baseball Cheat Sheet: Second Base Rankings for 2017

Jose Altuve remains the clear-cut No. 1 fantasy option at second base

Second base in fantasy baseball this season offers a little bit of everything. You want power? Brian Dozier, Rougned Odor can likely get you close to 30 home runs. You want speed? Jose Altuve, Dee Gordon and Trea Turner should be able to pad those categories.

And don’t forget that almost all of the top 10 second basemen should be able to provide a respectable batting average, while supplying some power and speed. I wouldn’t go so far as to say second base is an extremely deep position in 2017, but there’s nothing wrong with any of the first eight on the board.

 

If you are in a standard 12-team league you should be fine with any of those top eight guys or be able to survive with someone from the top 15. That is good news for fantasy owners.

 

Don’t’ forget, these and other rankings (both positional and overall) will change as we get closer to the start of the season. Be sure to check back often!
