Pre-Season 2009: Outfield Rankings
Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

Continuing the countdown to Spring Training, FantasyJuice's experts have independently ranked their top 75 outfielders heading into Spring of 2009.

Ryan Braun is the number one ranked outfielder after an impressive followup to his Rookie of the Year campaign. He should continue to improve his power numbers.

Matt Holliday's ranking slipped a bit as his move to Oakland might hurt his stolen base production.

Josh Hamilton had a solid first half in 2008 but his second-half decline had our experts a little worried to overdraft him.

Ryan Ludwick put up great numbers last season but FantasyJuice is a little suspicious that he can reproduce his elite numbers in 09.

The outfield is a deep position again in fantasy land. Don't pay too much for second tier players without first drafting the weaker positions.

These rankings will be updated during Spring Training to reflect position changes and Spring performance.
