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
