Second base is often a tough position to fill in fantasy baseball. There are a handful of truly elite players but then the value significantly drops off when you get to the second tier options. Determining how valuable a second basemen will be in the upcoming season is not easy and one must look at their performance from years past, not just last season.
When it comes to second basemen in fantasy, power should be valued over average. Guys like Dan Uggla are actually quite valuable despite their low batting average because they can hit 30+ home runs a year. Steals are always a nice added bonus and while a 2B snagging an extra 10-20 stolen bases over the course of the season can be useful, it won't win you a championship. Therefore second basemen that are solely speedsters should be ranked lower (like José Altuve who did not even make my top 10 list).
The Yahoo! experts have released their top 10 rankings list for second base but I don't agree with many of their rankings. Here are my top top 10 second basemen for the upcoming 2013 fantasy baseball season.
