PlayerTrack’s Top 10 Fantasy First Basemen of 2005

PlayerTrack ranks the top performing players from LAST season.  Personally, I think this is the BEST method to determine future performance.

Those players in RED are riskier picks because their statistics are averaged out as if they played a full season.  The players below were compared according to the 5×5 offensive categories of AVG, R, HR, RBI, and SB.

    And, I should add, that unless Tony Clark gets traded, he probably won’t make this list (unless Conor Jackson is a complete bust at Arizona).

    This is a shame because Tony Clark really had a nice, breakout year last year.
