The Fantasy Man's 2009 Third Base 3B Rankings

Alex Rodriquez, NYY - Still The Fantasy Man's overall, best, most consistent fantasy player
David Wright, NYM - Top 6 draft pick depending on preference
Miguel Cabrera, DET - Look for Cabrera to increase his AVG
Evan Longoria, TB - Risky this high up but he can be Braun-like or Beltre-like
Chipper Jones, ATL - Can he stay healthy? Probably not, but he's worth a spot on your roster when he is.

Aramis Ramirez, CHC - He won't hit 40 HR, 25-30 seems like a good estimate with solid all-around numbers
Russell Martin, LAD - Played 11 games at 3B so he qualifies in some leagues with 10 games or more, but I wouldn't draft him as your primary 3B

Garrett Atkins, COL - Solid, consistent, and durable
Aubrey Huff, BAL - Should be a decent value in drafts this year with 30+HR power

Jorge Cantu, FLA - 2008 was a bounce-back year and he's still pretty young
Chone Figgins, LAA - Comeback player of the year vote in 2009 with 50+SB potential!
Chris Davis, TEX - Rookie with superstar potential but 88K in 295 AB is a little silly
Ryan Zimmerman, WAS - 2008 was a blur, look for Zimmerman to step it up in 2009, plain and simple
Alex Gordon, KC - There is still time for a break out and 2009 being his 3rd full year could be it
Mark Reynolds, ARI - If he didn't hit .239 with 204 K, he'd be a superstar in the making! Has 30+ HR/100+RBI power
Mark DeRosa, CLE - Position eligibility at 2B/3B/OF and solid all-around player
Hank Blalock, TEX - Another comeback player of the year vote in 2009
Edwin Encarnacion, CIN - I'm beginning to think he's not a .300+ guy......
Carlos Guillen, DET - Eligibile at 1B/3B. If he can stay healthy, he'll have a typical Guillen year minus a few for age at .290/15/90/15
Dallas McPherson, FLA - 35+HR potential will get a chance to play everyday in 2009.

Troy Glaus, STL - Big power if he can stay healthy, will be a great value late in the draft
Mike Lowell, BOS - Fenway is built for Lowell and a healthy season could show 2007 like numbers again

Kevin Kouzmanoff, SD - Still young to prove he can be a .300 hitter with 20+HR power
Adrian Beltre, SEA - A healthy Beltre will give you the same lame ole production, but solid if you draft late
Ian Stewart, COL - Also played 12 games at 2B, has 20+HR power if he plays everyday

Melvin Mora, BAL - Getting older but still a solid value pick at the end of the draft
Casey Blake, LAD - Gives the same production every year and you can grab at the end of the draft or on wire
Blake DeWitt, LAD - If he plays everyday somewhere, he could jump up this ranking above Encarnacion
Andy LaRoche, PIT - Maybe a 20+HR guy but hasn't been able to put anything together yet

Pedro Feliz, PHI - He's okay, waiver wire material if you are desperate
Scott Rolen, TOR - He can't stay healthy
Ty Wigginton, HOU - Same as Rolen but always gives you 20 HR
Bill Hall, MIL - Most athletic guy on this list, but he is not a good hitter fantasy wise, plus Mat Gamel breathing down his neck!
Mat Gamel, MIL - The Brewers to hitting prospect, needs work on defense before he's called up!
Brian Buscher, MIN - Good hitter for BA but not much power
