Since before draft season began, we've been providing looks into our 2020 Rotoworld Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide to help give you the knowledge you need to make smarter decisions when your league's draft rolls around.

Complete with content covering various league types — from projections and rankings to tiers, ADP reports, mock drafts and exclusive expert columns — this year's edition is the finest we've ever produced and will prove to be an essential tool on draft day.

Today, we'll be taking a look at the guide's positional outlier exclusive feature series with this excerpt from our 1B Outliers.

Take a look:


Draft Guide Preview 1B Outliers


Christopher Crawford had Joey Votto at 15. The composite ranking was 20.

Sometimes, it's hard to quit a player, but I still think there's more reason for optimism for Votto; relative optimism, anyway. Yes, it's been two years with a slugging percentage below .420, and he's hit just 27 total homers over the last two years. There's still a chance that he hits for average, you know he's going to get more than his fair share of walks, and in that Cincinnati lineup, he should still have a chance to drive in runs. He's no longer anywhere close to an elite option, but if you give me the choice between him and a player like Luke Voit or Yuli Gurriel, I'll take Votto in the hopes that he bounces back to that top 10 at his position. I can't give up on his bat just yet. – Christopher Crawford (@Crawford_MILB)
