This position really drops off after the top six players … Paul Goldschmidt (32) and Wil Myers (28) were the only first basemen with more than 12 stolen bases in 2016 … You can wait four or five rounds after the elite group and get all the power you want with Chris Davis. It depends on how much you can offset his potentially bad BA elsewhere, though … Remember Greg Bird, who hit 11 homers in 46 games as a rookie in 2015? He’s back from a shoulder injury and ready to be the Yankees’ regular first baseman (Warning: He could share time with Chris Carter). You’ll be able to get Bird very late in mixed-league drafts … Carter is now in a platoon role where he could hit only 20 homers but his BA isn’t such a fantasy anchor. Pros and cons, right?
