The fantasy baseball tiers at third base are semi-deep but they could could lose some depth if several of the players drafted are put at first base. By using the below tiers with average draft position numbers, you should get a good feel of where certain players at third base will go in drafts.
Here is a look at the 2013 fantasy baseball tiers for third basemen.
For as much love as Longoria gets from fantasy owners, he has really been a disappointment the last two seasons based on his draft position.
Headley is going for a premium price this season and I don’t think he comes anywhere close to his power numbers from 2012.
Now that the hype has worn of Lawrie a little bit, you can get him at a decent round in the draft without reaching too far over his average draft position.
Prado always goes high in drafts but he just doesn’t have enough power for me to grab him at third base.
I probably like Frazier best out of the group for his power potential. Freese comes with an injury history and I think Seager is close to his ceiling already.
Give me the veterans for another season in an annual league. Alvarez carries too much risk for a team’s batting average and I think Machado is still a year away from being higher in the rankings.
