Over the next couple of weeks, I will cover my top 200 keepers in fantasy baseball.

I have also provided each players age in parenthesis. ┬áThese rankings are based on value for your standard 5×5 stats (runs, hrs, rbi, avg, sb, wins, k’s, era, whip and saves).

Once again, Albert Pujols leads the way in my 2011 rankings for first basemen and all keeper players. How much longer should fantasy owners expect Albert to be the king of baseball and what type of numbers should his owners expect from him in the upcoming season?
