Looking for comprehensive 2021 Fantasy Baseball rankings? Look no further, here are the top 100 outfielders in MLB.

With a little more than two weeks before Opening Day, fans are ramping up their research for the upcoming MLB season. Before then, Our Esquina is dropping their 2021 Fantasy Baseball Rankings by position, including updates, every day until the first pitch of the regular season is thrown.

Today, we’re going to rank the league’s top 100 outfielders. Who you select in this position could very easily make or break your year, especially when you consider that you will have to roster multiple outfielders.

NOTE: Because these rankings are determined by aggregating projection stats, some players are ranked much lower than you might expect. For example:

  • Charlie Blackmon, COL (63) – In the last five years, Blackmon has been one of the absolute best hitters in MLB. In fact, since 2016 he is fourth in batting average (.314), eighth in OPS (.923), and eighth in weighted on-base average (.386). However, he will be turning 35 mid-season, which can mean that a decline is likely. The question you will have to ask yourself if you choose to draft Blackmon high is, can he delay his imminent decline another year or two?
  • Teoscar Hernandez, TOR (72) – If you’re looking for quick points in spurts, Hernandez might be a good option in higher rounds. Over the last three seasons, in terms of slugging percentage, the Dominican native has increased his power production from .468 to to .472 to .568. Last season, he mesmerized the baseball universe with a few moonshots (below). As Hernandez works to improve his patience at the plate, expect better results statistically.

Before we begin, remember that these rankings are for head-to-head (H2H) leagues. Determinations were made by aggregating all projection stats, which can be found on FanGraphs.
