Fantasy baseball is a game of quandaries, and draft day is no exception.

Any number of superstars taken in the first two rounds could serve as the foundation of a championship fantasy lineup, but that doesn't mean position scarcity should be overlooked.

In 2012, for instance, 36 outfielders finished the season ranked in the top 100 players in standard Yahoo! leagues.  On the flip side, only three catchers managed the same designation.

This means, in a 10-team league, each manager could legitimately secure three top 100 players in the outfield, while only three managers could tout a top 100 player at catcher.

That's not to say you should reach for a catcher or forgo drafting an outfielder in the early rounds, it's merely an observation that forces fantasy owners to look beyond the statistics.

So, what positions should you prioritize come draft day 2013?  

I'll break down the ever so important positions of scarcity and who you should target at each to win your fantasy league.
