Positional thoughts for the upcoming season, giving the lows and highs of players to watch heading into your fantasy baseball drafts.

Initial rankings are listed here for outfield. We've already discussed catchersfirst basemensecond basemenshortstops and third basemen.

Unlike the other positions in fantasy baseball, the outfield spots on your roster take up 3 starting spots for most leagues.

However, despite having a ton of outfielders to choose from, Mike Trout is still the number one OF (and likely fantasy player). His ability to hit 40 home runs and steal 30 bases is no match.

After Trout, there are plenty of other fish in the sea (thanks, I'll see myself out). Mookie Betts, Charlie Blackmon and George Springer are usually in the 20/20 group.

If you don't care about stolen bases and want a masher - look no further than Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge. Both sluggers will put a hurting on baseballs leaving Yankee Stadium this season. Even with the strikeouts from Judge, owners will still get plenty of value in home runs, runs scored and OBP.

Rhys Hoskins will hit 39 home runs in 2018. Perhaps. Either way, he's a nice underrated fantasy start with first base and OF eligibility.

A.J. Pollock and Andrew Benintendi are members of the 20/20 club. Much like Stanton and Judge, if you don't care about stolen bases, Nelson Cruz is your mid-tier masher.

Domingo Santana crushed 30 home runs last year and is on his way to another breakout year for the Brew Crew. Despite playing for the Padres, Wil Myers had an excellent season. His ability should not be overlooked on draft day.

Tier Five is full of bargain type players. These are the players that you can call "sleepers" with hopes of getting them in later rounds. Ender Inciarte of the Braves is a 20/20 type player, much like rookie Manuel Margot of the Padres.

Nomar Mazara of the Rangers had a boring season in 2017, but at the age of just 23 years old entering 2018 - he's a player that is a late developer and could be a nice grab.

If you're looking for mashers and nothing else, Mark Trumbo of the Orioles and Adam Duvall from the Reds are 30+ home run guys, respectively.
