Updated Fantasy Baseball Rankings by Position

The average scoring by position was calculated by taking the top 10 at C, 1B, 2B, 3B and SS while OF and SP were based on the top 30.

Players that are eligible for multiple position were only counted once - so Hanley Ramirez was counted as a 1B not an OF, Eugenio Suarez at 3B not SS, etc..

The most glaring observation is that Buster Posey, the top catcher at 104 points, has scored below the average at every other position.  I am not sure why people believe in drafting catchers early, but this is a good example of why it's not worth it.  There is also a very small difference between Posey and J.T. Realmuto, the 10th best catcher.
