Not much of an introduction here for Part 2, as we’ll just jump right into the fold. The only thing to note is that here is where the underbelly of the position rests, and it causes there to be a minimal difference between a lot of players on this list. So if you think someone in the 80’s should be in the 60’s, you probably won’t get too much of an argument from me. Also, safety is out the window at this point in the list – since safety only works when the numbers are decent. For the back-end of your OF, it should be all about upside – which is the best way to take advantage of the depth in 4th and 5th outfielders.
And now your next 100 dynasty league outfielders, with sporadic commentary:
#51 – Shane Victorino, OF, Boston Red Sox
The combination of Fenway and John Farrell’s running tendencies should breathe life back into Victorino’s fantasy value. But to be perfectly honest, his value doesn’t even have to bounce back to be worthy of this spot – after all, he did hit 11 HR and steal 39 bases last year.
#52 – Andre Ethier, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers
#53 – Jason Kubel, OF, Arizona Diamondbacks
#54 – Cameron Maybin, OF, San Diego Padres
So a safe OF, a medium risk OF and an upside OF walk into a bar. Ethier should have plenty of RBI opportunities in that Dodger lineup and Kubel should retain a lot of value by not being the Arizona OF that got dealt away from the desert. But Maybin is a guy I have my eye squarely on. He’s still only going to be 26 on Opening Day and he has power potential in the bat. He’s a very worthy flier if you’re looking for a guy with full-on breakout possibilities.
