The outfield position in fantasy baseball is much like the wide receiver position in fantasy football.  Its nearly impossible to win without a good group.  Most leagues will have you starting at least 3 of them at a time, and across a 10-12 man league, that is 30-36 outfielders that are being played on a daily basis. Half of these guys will most likely be gone within the first 50 picks. You want to make sure that you have at least 2 OFs on your roster before the end of the fourth round.
