Justin Mason’s Top 50 Third Base: 2/11/2021

Drafts are in full swing and now I am 10 drafts into the season, here are my current ranks for the third base position for 2021. I will post updates every 2-4 weeks as things change with signings, injuries, or news in Major League Baseball.

Justin Mason’s Top 50 Third Basemen: 2/11/2021
Rk Player Team Position(s) ADP Notes
1 Jose Ramirez CLE 3B 11.4 Easily a top 10 pick in fantasy this year.
2 Manny Machado SD 3B 24.33 In spite of what people think, he has never been anything but a stud.
3 Anthony Rendon LAA 3B 43.54 Safe floor and high ceiling
4 DJ LeMahieu NYY 1B, 2B, 3B 33.58 Landing back in New York was the best case scenario.
5 Nolan Arenado STL 3B 35.15 I don’t think the regression will be as bad as others do.
6 Rafael Devers BOS 3B 44.54 At some point he will hit 40+ bombs.
7 Alex Bregman HOU 3B 46 Could be a guy that is hurt by the change in the ball. Could easily move him down further.
8 Yoan Moncada CWS 3B 82.63 COVID sapped him, but supposedly he is good to go.
9 Eugenio Suarez CIN 3B 83.23 Power is legit, but that batting average cratering is scary.
10 Cavan Biggio TOR 2B, 3B, OF 59.75 Some concerns about where he hits in this lineup has me a bit concerned.
11 Max Muncy LAD 1B, 2B, 3B 103.37 Playoff performance makes me feel better about the disappointing 2020.
12 Alec Bohm PHI 1B, 3B 104.98 Perfect mix of upside and safe floor.
13 Ke’Bryan Hayes PIT 3B 139.87 Was really impressive in his small sample.
14 Matt Chapman OAK 3B 117.6 Injuries hurt him in 2020, but if healthy, he is a solid power bat that plays everyday.
15 Tommy Edman STL 2B, 3B, SS, OF 126.02 I think there is enough pop and speed with a great flexibility.
16 Kris Bryant CHC 3B 136.12 Last year was disappointing, but as long as he is healthy, he should rebound.
17 Andres Gimenez CLE 2B, 3B, SS 153.79 Cleveland is a great landing spot for Gimenez.
18 Jeff McNeil NYM 2B, 3B, OF 89.25 The power outage and 0-for-2 on the base paths has me very scared.
19 Josh Donaldson MIN 3B 205.75 Health is the only thing I am worried about.
20 Justin Turner FA 3B 217.17 Still thinks he ends up back in LA
21 Jean Segura PHI 2B, 3B 188.29 The stolen bases aren’t what they used to be, but he is a solid contributor.
22 Gio Urshela NYY 3B 159.98 Expected to ready for opening day, but we need to see him on the field.
23 Austin Riley ATL 3B 204.81 Still young enough to improve as long as the Braves don’t bring in someone else.
24 Brian Anderson MIA 3B 219.44 Boring name matches a boring profile.
25 J.D. Davis NYM 3B, OF 232.56 Rumors of the Mets wanting to trade for a 3B makes me worried about his playing time.
26 Eduardo Escobar ARZ 3B 283.4 He isn’t as bad as he was in 2020 and not as good as he was in 2019.
27 Evan Longoria SF 3B 363.48 Reliable bat that will play everyday and hit in the middle of the lineup.
28 Ryan McMahon COL 1B, 2B, 3B 250.96 Will Colorado actually play him?
29 Jeimer Candelario DET 1B, 3B 242.73 Going to hit fifth and should accumulate a decent enough stats to be usable.
30 Isiah Kiner-Falefa TEX 3B, SS 287.02 Locked into playing time now.
31 Kyle Seager SEA 3B 258.02 Compiler that should produce just enough.
32 David Fletcher LAA 2B, 3B, SS 221.87 Going to lead off, but has no power or speed.
33 Carter Kieboom WAS 3B 425.25 I still believe in the talent and the price is right.
34 Edwin Rios LAD 3B 316.02 If Turner goes somewhere else, Rios could be in for a big opportunity.
35 Yandy Diaz TB 3B 431.08 I don’t think we ever see the upside his muscles say is there.
36 Willi Castro DET 3B, SS 251.25 Showed more pop than I thought was there and less speed. Don’t know what to expect here.
37 Joey Wendle TB 2B, 3B, SS 306.23 Strong side platoon is still a platoon.
38 Luis Urias MLW 2B, 3B, SS 376.69 Should play every day, but bats at the bottom.
39 Isaac Paredes DET 3B 494.44 Could be interesting if he finds a full time role.
40 Maikel Franco FA 3B 433.08 Needs to find a team, but I think he will be a starter if he does.
41 Rio Ruiz BAL 3B 491.75 Going to play and hit for some power.
42 Matt Carpenter STL 3B 544.35 No longer a starter unless the DH comes to the NL.
43 David Bote CHC 2B, 3B 458.63 Super Utility guy that will have deep league value.
44 Marwin Gonzalez FA 1B, 2B, 3B, OF 475.87 I think he signs somewhere that he will get decent playing time.
45 Josh Harrison WAS 2B, 3B 605.92 Insurance for Kieboom.
46 Erik Gonzalez PIT 3B, SS 540.44 Will play everyday in Pittsburgh, but there is limited upside.
47 Mike Brosseau TB 1B, 2B, 3B 421.04 A better DFS play than a season long one.
48 Spencer Torkelson DET 3B 529.98 Don’t know when or if he will be up this year.
49 Abraham Toro HOU 3B 645.83 Blocked, but I think he has some skills.
50 Nolan Gorman STL 3B 736.29 The Arenado signing blocks him until the DH is in the NL, but he is ready offensively.
