First base rankings for 2020 fantasy baseball

Major League Baseball will return for a 60-game season and we’re here with our 2020 fantasy baseball first base rankings to help you prepare.

Welcome to the 2020 MLB season! It’s here? Well, a version of baseball is hopefully here for 60 regular season games. There’s still a month to go until the first games are played which is plenty of time for the earth to be taken over by the Third Eye Blind Mega-Mountain Martians. But, we will continue to act like baseball and more importantly, fantasy baseball will happen.

A 60 game season with players possibly missing time due to being quarantined, could be a huge dumpster barge fire. But here at DraftKings Nation, we are the positive, happy people! Let’s do this thing!

The Top-3 first basemen are pretty much locked in and are worth going after whenever you get a shot at them. Cody Bellinger is almost in a tier of his own with Freddie Freeman and Pete Alonso close behind.

Overall, first base isn’t that deep, so getting one of these three is a real positive. That doesn’t mean you focus fully on grabbing them, but I would like to land one of the Top-10, as things thin out fast.
