The following countdown touts my picks for the top 20 first basemen in fantasy—from this point forward.

To clarify, this listing is not necessarily a celebration of those who posted stellar stats from April 4-June 19 or those who were prominently featured in the preseason rankings.

It's simply a compilation of the best assets moving forward. It's also a rundown of the 20 most appealing 1B-eligible hitters to pursue in trades for the stretch run. (There are a lot of stars with dual-position versatility.)

When originally crafting the list, I was surprised that neither Freddie Freeman, Mike Napoli nor Justin Morneau made the final cut.

But in a season where the real depth at first base runs almost 30 deep, hard choices had to be made somewhere.

Enjoy the show!
