2024 Fantasy Baseball: Consensus First Base Rankings

First base has a reputation of being home to the big boppers and 2023 was no different as the big bats of Freddie Freeman and Matt Olson were among the top bats in baseball. The position does pose a bit of a challenge for fantasy baseball managers though. While it’s deep in potential power, first base is pretty top-heavy when it comes to elite hitters and our consensus first base rankings agreed.

According to the Fangraphs auction calculator, Olson and Freeman were both worth $55+ in 2023. The next hitter (Cody Bellinger) produced more than $20 less and the production fell off quickly from there. Young sluggers like Triston Casas and Spencer Torkelson certainly seem to be on the rise but first base may not be as deep as many people think.
