First base is fantasy baseball's deepest position, so don't fret if you can't get Albert Pujols or Miguel Cabrera.
Each year, someone comes out of nowhere to steal the spotlight. Last year, it was Michael Morse. Morse was only one of three first basemen to have at least 30 home runs and maintain a .300 or better average (Miguel Cabrera and Paul Konerko were the other two).
Plus, there's a solid group of youngsters who are ready to make a name for themselves this season.
Having said this, five of the top 10 picks could be first basemen (Cabrera, Pujols, Votto, Fielder and A-Gon), so you don't want to wait too long.
Who should you pick? Continue reading to see the power rankings and projections for the top 20 first basemen for the 2012 season.
Keep in mind, this list is for anyone who has 1B eligibility, so players who aren't traditionally thought of as first basemen (Mike Napoli, Carlos Santana) could make the list.
