Fantasy outfield options are so many and wide-spread, we had to expand our targets per each phase of your respective drafts. There is plenty of young, upstart talent that can be had at a great draft-day value.

Some of our favorites, after compiling our ADP and Composite outfielder rankings, include:



A consensus ninja target based on his incredible reservoir of talent and the deflated draft-day interest due to last season’s struggles. We’re banking on a sizable Sizemore rebound. So should you.



Coming off an Achilles injury, Reimold appears ready to rock. He was having an impressive 2009 before the injury. Could produce a fantasy MVP-type season considering his draft positioning in most leagues.


There are so many outfielders I’d be OK targeting in the middle rounds, I just want to put them all here. Bruce is one of my personal favorites. Very well could out-homer most listed here in the middle rounds, Bruce is young and ready to explode in a good way in fantasy circles.

Guy just crushes baseballs with such authority, it was only a matter of time that this uber-prospect got his change at the major league level. The Braves are giving it to him right out of the gates as their opening day right fielder.

It is important to note that rookie hitters typically struggle more than rookie pitchers in their first season, but Heyward is just too talented to overlook.


One of many later-round super speedy outfielder options, Davis seems to be going even later than the Julio Borbons of the fantasy world. Considering that stolen base god Ricky Henderson has anointed Davis as a 70-swipe candidate in 2010, I have no trouble bypassing guys like Carl Crawford early in drafts and going with several late-round speed guys like Davis to cover my speed needs.
