Last but not least we go to an even 100 when it comes to our initial look at the 2016 fantasy baseball outfielder rankings by checking out who made the cut from 81-100. 

81. Nori Aoki:  Aoki joins the San Francisco Giants lineup where he will bat leadoff and do a fair impression of his solid 2015 statistical haul.  One of the last outfielder 3's in the rankings. 
82. Alex Rios:  Still unsigned and for good reason as Rios looked completely shot last season, with his rate numbers down more than a little across the board.  Age does not discriminate. 
83. Coco Crisp:  Another old and vastly fading veteran whose biggest asset in terms of the stolen base looks completely finished. 
84. Austin Jackson:  Very boring veteran outfielder who never lived up to early hype. 
85. Carl Crawford:  The Dodgers almost have to play Crawford on the rare times he is healthy due to his stupid contract and that is not saying much in terms of his value. 
86. Dalton Pompey:  Capable of some steals but Pompey needs playing time to even be remotely interesting. 
87. Nick Markakis:  Still scratching our heads in terms of why the Braves signed Markakis in free agency prior to 2015.  Is as big an empty average as one can get. 
88. Angel Pagan:  Injuries and more injuries here as Pagan can be lumped in with Crisp, Crawford, and Rios. 
89. Alejandro De Aza:  Will play against righties in center for the Mets and was decent in spurts last season.  Still has next-to-no overall value. 
90. Chris Young:  Signs for two years with the Red Sox where he will mash against lefties and sit versus righties.  Not the split you want in terms of having any value. 
91. Jake Marsinick:  Was surprisingly decent the first two months of 2015 before turning back to the garbage he always was. 
92. Juan Lagares:  A once intriguing future looks very bleak as Lagares just can't hit for any power and his good speed has not translated into steals.  Will only play versus lefties. 
93. David Murphy:  Can drive in runs in short bunches but Murphy is always seemingly trying to latch onto a starting job somewhere. 
94. Seth Smith:  Another veteran who can destroy lefties but do nothing against the more plentiful righties. 
95. Brandon Guyer:  Made the most out of a chance to play last season for the Tampa Bay Rays but Guyer was a career minor leaguer prior for a reason. 
96. Will Venable:  Still unsigned himself and coming off an awful 2015 campaign.  Nothing to see here. 
97. Michael Bourn:  Hated the guy even when he was in his prime as a one-category steals specialist.  Now that category is destroyed as well. 
98. Franklin Gutierrez:  Nice story here as Gutierrez overcame some serious health woes to perform like a terrific outfielder 3 the second half of last season but consider that a small mirage. 
99. Jeff Francoeur:  Another story that got a lot of attention as the always popular Francoeur hit some home runs for the rebuilding Philadelphia Phillies.  Just a gimmick now. 
100.Melvin Upton:  One of the worst everyday players in all of baseball.
