2012 Outfield Keeper Rankings

Our 2012 keeper rankings focus on leagues that must gage the value of players for at least the next 3-5 years.

C1B2B3BSS – OF – DH – SP – CL

No matter if your keeper league is deep or shallow, we have you covered. Here’s our top 98 outfield keeper ranings. 

Note: All players on keeper rankings lists have appeared in the major leagues. For prospect rankings, check out our 2012 5×5 rankings list. Some players are not listed here due to their value at other positions or likelihood that they will not retain OF eligibility past 2012.

Note II: Due to the need to get these rankings finished, I’ll only be making a few player comments here and there I’ve left out any player comments. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or contact me via email cs.fb365@gmail.com.
