4. Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds
If you want to win a bar bet with a friend ask them this question: Who has finished second on the player rater on ESPN in back to back fantasy seasons at first base? The answer: Joey Votto.
Over the last two seasons, the 2010 NL MVP has hit for a .320 average, 98 runs, 29 home runs, 88 RBIs and he has had an absolutely insane .447 OBP. He has almost as many walks (251) to strikeouts (255), and in today’s game, that is amazing with so many swing and miss players. He fills up the stat sheet every night while playing on maybe one of the worst offenses in the league.
Don’t let the bad team around him stop you from drafting Votto this year. You can get him at a lower round but still get elite production from him. #freevotto
