Second Base Fantasy Baseball Rankings For 2019

RotoAce provides detailed second base fantasy baseball rankings, broken into tiers, along with 2019 projections. We feel tiers are important, because if you use these lists during your draft, it’s easier to determine which player is more important to grab first. We also provide projections that go beyond standard 5×5 leagues, so that you can use these rankings and projections in leagues with expanded categories like walk and strikeout percentages, on-base percentage, slugging and OPS.
