Fantasy Baseball Rankings Report - NL
Fantasy baseball players must follow changes in preseason rankings, including how injuries, depth chart changes and transactions can affect their fantasy baseball teams. Stay up to date with notable adjustments in KFFL's fantasy baseball projections to outperform competitors.
The release of Elijah Dukes opens up time in right field. Maxwell provides the most upside for 2010. He showed in his brief MLB stint last year that there's power-speed intrigue for NL-only leagues. If he wins at least the majority share of this battle, he'll be relevant in deep mixed at times this year, too.
Also potentially eligible at second base and third base in many leagues, Harris is part of the equation to fill time in right field now that Elijah Dukes is gone. His roster flexibility makes him worth an NL-only depth option; he can steal a bit, but there isn't much upside.
Bernadina, 25, has shown power-speed potential similar to Maxwell but has slightly less MLB experience. He's a dark horse for a share of time in Washington's right field without Elijah Dukes. A deep, deep lottery ticket in NL leagues.
He's out six weeks after docs discovered a slight tear in Gamel's latissimus dorsi.
Elijah Dukes, OF, free agent
He was released by the Washington Nationals. Depending on where he lands, he's still talented enough for a no-commitments flier in deep leagues.
A slight drop because of his likelihood of not being ready for the start of the season; he likely won't miss much time, though. This doesn't change his No. 3 closer value much. In fact, he could come at an even bigger discount now.
