With players like Josh Donaldson, Jedd Gyorko, Kyle Seager, and Manny Machado emerging as legitimate fantasy threats over the past couple of years, the third base position in 2014is deeper than it once was.

As always, the field is led by Miguel Cabrera, who’ll likely mostly play first base while retaining his third base eligibility. Miggy is in a class of his own but there are at least 12 other third basemen that can provide about 20+ home runs and a decent amount of RBIs.

Looking at the lower-ranked third basemen, there is definitely sleeper talent among the likes of Cody Asche, Matt Dominguez, and Matt Davidson but inconsistency and inexperience has to make fantasy owners, especially those in head-to-head leagues, nervous about cold streaks. Still, there are plenty of late rounders that can exceed their full season value at times and make for good draft investments.

Let’s take a look at the full fantasy baseball 2014 third base projections. Don’t forget to check out our first base projections, second base projections, and shortstop projections and check back for more positions coming later this week.
