## Fantasy Baseball Draft Advice: First Base

As usual, the first base position is deep, even more so this year than last. Your strategy at first base will largely depend on your draft strategy. Paul Goldschmidt, Anthony Rizzo, Miguel Cabrera, and Joey Votto are all great early round picks. There are also, however, some great mid round picks. So if you are in an auction draft for instance, and want to load up on second and third tier talent, there are plenty of options at this position.
