We finish our position player rankings with the top 75 outfielders. This group is filled with players that are high risk, high reward, or conversely, low risk, low reward. Pick your poison. Tomorrow we begin our starting pitcher rankings.

2016 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Catcher/First Base/Second Base/Shortstop/Third Base/Outfield(Top 25)/(Top 50)/Starters(Top 25)/(Top 50)/(Top 75)/(Top 100)/Closer/Top 250 Overall

51) Kevin Pillar TOR – In the running to leadoff for Toronto’s powerhouse offense. Can provide Adam Eaton like production at a cheaper price. 2016 Projection: 71/10/50/.275/20

52) Josh Reddick OAK – Hasn’t been able to come close to repeating that 32 homer, 11 steal season in 2012, but still a relatively safe pick with some upside. 2016 Projection: 65/18/75/.260/6

53) Billy Burns OAK – The name perfectly fits the skills, as Burns is a legitimate burner.  2016 Projection: 76/6/41/.274/28

54) Steven Souza TB – Tantalizing 20/20 potential, but with some serious AVG risk. 2016 Projection: 70/19/60/.240/14

55) Ender Inciarte ATL – The move into Atlanta’s weak lineup hurts, but it doesn’t completely kill his value. 2016 Projection: 68/6/44/.282/22

56) Delino DeShields Jr. TEX –  Billy Burns without the cool name. Has a name more suited for fencing. 2016 Projection: 76/8/45/.255/26

57) Randal Grichuk STL – Might be getting a little overrated, but I understand falling in love with the power upside. 2016 Projection: 64/21/69/.258/5

58) Mark Trumbo BAL – Safe power bat with a low AVG. 2016 Projection: 64/24/75/.248/1

59) Evan Gattis HOU – See, Mark Trumbo. 2016 Projection: 58/23/72/.253/0

60) A.J. Pollock ARI, OF – Backed up his injury shortened 2014 breakout with a monster 2015. Expect him to come back down to earth a bit. 2016 Projection: 52/7/31/.291/15 (Update: Fractured his elbow while sliding into home and will require surgery. Timetable is still uncertain.)

61) Marcell Ozuna MIA – High risk power bat. Hit 23 homers in 2014 and only 10 last season. 2016 Projection: 61/16/69/.267/3

62) Domingo Santana MIL – There is no question the power will play at the major league level, the only question is how low of an average it will come with. 2016 Projection: 63/24/74/.239/4

63) Michael Conforto NYM – Another power hitting youngster who I think is getting a little overrated for this season. 2016 Projection: 60/19/68/.264/2

64) Stephen Piscotty STL – Very good hitter, but has yet to display big power or speed. The power could develop at any moment, though, a la Matt Carpenter. 2016 Projection: 65/14/61/.277/6

65) Melky Cabrera CHI-AL – Nothing flashy. Solid AVG and counting stats. 2016 Projection: 69/13/72/.280/4

66) Denard Span SFG – Will hit leadoff for San Francisco. Plus AVG and speed. 2016 Projection: 74/4/39/.288/19

67) Josh Harrison PIT – Had a disappointing follow up season to his 2014 breakout. AVG might be the only category you can really bank on. 2016 Projection: 67/9/48/.286/12

68) Nori Aoki SEA – Low risk, low reward. Favorite to hit leadoff in front of Seattle’s sneaky strong middle of the order (Seager, Cruz, Cano, Lind). 2016 Projection: 68/7/40/.287/18

69) Kevin Kiermaier TB – Known more for his defense, but the bat has some juice too. 2016 Projection: 66/9/47/.271/16

70) Rajai Davis CLE – With Abe Almonte suspended for 80 games, and Michael Brantley rehabbing from shoulder surgery, Davis should see plenty of at-bats this season. And that means plenty of steals, as well. 2016 Projection: 69/8/50/.251/26

71) Austin Jackson CHI-AL – Signed for one year, $5 million with the Chicago White Sox. This bumps Avisail Garcia completely out of the rankings. 2016 Projection: 62/10/40/.261/14

72) Jayson Werth WASH – Might be old, but at this point in the rankings, is worth taking a flier on. 2016 Projection: 68/16/67/.264/5

73) Carlos Beltran NYY – See, Jayson Werth. 2016 Projection: 57/18/67/.268/0

74) Danny Valencia OAK – Triple-slashed .284/.356/.530 with 11 homers in only 47 games for Oakland last season. Will be their starting third baseman this year. 2016 Projection: 58/17/69/.273/3

75) Yasmany Tomas ARI – Still a bit of an unknown, but what we have seen has not exactly been inspiring. 2016 Projection: 57/14/68/.262/6
