There are a few things to consider in the fantasy baseball rankings of 2022. First, you’ll want to choose a starting pitcher. A pitcher with high upside is more likely to perform well in a fantasy league, especially if the team’s starting pitcher is a veteran. However, players with low upside are not always good investments. Here are some examples of players who have a high upside and a low risk.
If you want a breakout fantasy player, you should pick up Rafael Ortega of the Chicago Cubs. This veteran center fielder has only been in the majors since 2012, but he played a significant role in the Chicago outfield last year. He started 73 of his 103 games and finished with a batting average of.291. His slugging percentage was a whopping.463. He also finished the year with a career-high home run total and 33 RBI.
A major breakout candidate in the fantasy baseball rankings of 2022 is Padres right fielder Wil Myers. Myers was the American League Rookie of the Year in 2013 and a 2016 NL All-Star. His batting average is mediocre, but he provides above-average speed and decent power from the corner outfield position. Myers did not maintain his absurd production from 2020, but he did have a solid year offensively in 2021. His 1,088 OPS at the end of the season was a major upgrade over the average outfielder.
Several key sleeper breakout candidates in 2022 were picked by Alex Chamberlin. Chamberlin examined key pitching comps to identify potential breakout starters. The 2022 Fantasy Baseball Rankings will be released in September, and fantasy baseball draft season is about to get underway. Make sure to read our previews of each position for more information.
