The second baseman are up next as we take a look at the updated fantasy baseball rankings for the 2016 season.

1.  Jose Altuve:  Has upped his home run rate yet again to go with the .320-plus average and huge run/stolen base numbers.  Holding his first round value.
2.  Ian Kinsler:  Amazing stuff here as Kinsler is running again with 7 steals and his 11 home runs with a .313 average have made him a five tool monster again after three years of mediocre stolen base numbers. 
3.  Robinson Cano:  14 hone runs says it all here as Cano is slamming the baseball like he did in his Yankees days.  Since the middle of 2015, Cano is right there with his old Yankees numbers and hitting rates. 
4.  Daniel Murphy:  Hitting nearly .400 and with the same high level power he showed last postseason, Murphy has been a tremendous value both in real and in fantasy baseball. 
5.  Matt Carpenter:  Still carries second base eligibility where Carpenter's 20-plus home run power has more value.  No steals here and a decreased average since the power binge but overall still very impactful. 
6.  Rougned Odor
7.  Jean Segura:  You want Segura at shortstop but the second base eligbility is an added bonus to what has been a terrific comeback season. 
8.  Dustin Pedroia:  Pedroia has stayed healthy so far and is hitting well with some pop.  The steals look gone for good though. 
9.  Neil Walker:  Having a career year for the New York Mets with extreme power but everything else right in line with his regular levels. 
10. D.J. LeMathieu
11. Jason Kipnis
12. Ben Zobrist:  The average will come down as Zobrist is not a .320-ish guy by any means but the power is real since this is the first time he has operated in a swell hitter's park. 
13. Aledmys Diaz
14. Anthony Rendon:  Has not come anywhere near his 2014 monster breakout season which now is being called an outlier. 
15. Brandon Phillips
16. Starlin Castro:  A big April start has devolved into his old inconsistency that got him traded in the first place. 
17. Logan Forsythe
18. Josh Harrison
19. Brett Lawrie
20. Jonathan Schoop
21. Steve Pearce:  Decent bounce back season for Pearce who picked up second base eligibility.  Average has returned to respectful levels with the usual pop. 
22. Joe Panik
23. Danny Espinosa
24. Brad Miller
25. Hernan Perez:  Decent steals guy who came from the blue. 
26. Matt Duffy
27. Brian Dozier:  What a joke Dozier has been and this rankings is legit and well-earned due to his absence of steals and .200 average. 
28. Jose Ramirez
29. Kolten Wong: Another major disappointment who doesn't seem like he will ever figure it out. 
30. Aaron Hill:  Veteran still hitting decently enough but you really want to avoid Hill if you can.
