Who will remain at the top??

Follow me on Twitter:

It’s a long season, 162 games to be exact. There are many factors that can change how many games a player actually plays, but usually they play in the 150 game range for the top guys who are healthy. Days of Cal Ripken Jr. type streaks are over. The current longest games played (active) streak is I don’t know and it took too long on google to figure it out. Stars like to rest on Sundays. That being said, here is my list of top players at each position that will get you consistent results for the whole season. Many players will start off slow and pick up, or become a bust. Many players will start off red hot and fizzle, or continue to roll. I’m sure someone that isn’t on this list will be a top 10 and someone on this list won’t be on it when the season is over. For now… are my thoughts. These lists will come in two different articles as space doesn’t allow all for one.  Good luck…. As always these are my opinions, you can have your own. Feel free to draft anyone you want….it’s your team. You are running it now, not me. Remember that many players have eligibility at more than one position!!!!!
