Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings - 2023 Points Leagues: Christian Walker, Vinnie Pasquantino, Rowdy Tellez, Triston Casas

Christian Walker - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, MLB Injury News, Draft Sleepers

RotoBaller is constantly working to try and bring fantasy baseball managers the best advice, especially during draft season. A big part of that includes regular updates to our tiered rankings for all formats. In this article, you will find our updated fantasy baseball first base rankings for points leagues as of March 5th.

In this article below, we will be taking a look at our first base rankings list put together by RotoBaller's lead fantasy baseball points analyst, Nicklaus Gaut. First base may not be as deep as it has been in years past, but it was one of the deepest groups in fantasy baseball in 2022. There are a few studs mixed in with some quality options at the mid-range. With third basemen being scarce this year, fantasy managers will most likely fill out their starting corner infielder slot with first basemen in leagues that require one. We're here to help sort it out with our 2023 fantasy baseball rankings. Let's see where key first basemen like Christian Walker, Vinnie Pasquantino, Rowdy Tellez, Triston Casas, and Anthony Rizzo rank, among others.

Our team here at RotoBaller HQ has been hard at work all offseason putting together our 2023 Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit and all sorts of fantasy baseball rankings for different formats. We're also writing fresh daily articles analyzing this year's fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts, and so much more. You can also find our other draft rankings for all league formats, continually updated throughout the preseason, in our main fantasy baseball Rankings Wizard tool.

Fantasy Baseball First Base Rankings- Points Leagues

These rankings are for points and head-to-head points leagues. You can also see our roto fantasy baseball rankings.

Before we get to the rankings, let's quickly review points leagues and how they differ from other formats. Typically, points leagues have different league settings and scoring formats than other fantasy baseball leagues. Different MLB stats and categories are assigned different point values, which can vary by individual league settings. Those different point buckets are then added up over the course of a scoring period or season.

In many cases, hitters who walk more and strike out less are preferred for points leagues. Also, many league formats tend to give more weight to pitchers than normal, as they can easily accrue points through categories like Innings Pitched. These are the general frameworks that we use for our points league rankings below, and explain why they look different than more standard 5x5 roto fantasy baseball rankings.
