Votto fantasy baseball replacements

Joey Votto (knee surgery) fantasy replacements. He will miss at least three-to-four weeks after he undergoes surgery in the next few days.


The Reds have confirmed Joey Votto will miss the next three-to-four weeks after he undergoes knee surgery in the next few days to repair a torn meniscus.  It's near impossible to replace his fantasy production, but here are the my top five (in no particular order), widely available first basemen that owners should target.

  • Paul Goldschmidt - owned in 55.8 percent of all FOXSports.com fantasy leagues
    • 12 R / 4 HR / 16 RBI over the past 30 days
  • Tyler Colvin - 27.0 percent ownership
    • 13 R / 6 HR / 20 RBI over the past 30 days
  • Ike Davis - 35.3 percent ownership
    • 13 R / 7 HR / 22 RBI over the past 30 days 
  • Allen Craig - 53.3 percent ownership
    • 16 R / 6 HR / 16 RBI over the past 30 days
  • Anthony Rizzo - 35.2 percent ownership
    • 7 R / 3 HR / 6 RBI over the past 14 days
