1. Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona Diamondbacks
Goldy has been as consistent as it comes in fantasy baseball over the last four years (Besides in 2014 when he only played in 109 games) Over those years he has a batting average of .306, with 31 home runs, 110 RBI’s, 103 runs and 22 stolen bases. Those are elite fantasy numbers across the board. Stolen bases are down as a whole throughout the league and to possess a first baseman who can get you 20 in a year gives you an advantage.
He gives you plus numbers in every category at his position and is worthy of being the No. 1 first basemen off the board. He is still an elite option in keeper and dynasty leagues.
