First Base: Miguel Cabrera - One of the toughest decisions i have to make. Honorable mention to Edwin Encarnacion and Eric Hosmer; an argument can be made for all three, but Cabrera's overall production across 4 categories tipped the scale for me.
Second base: Jose Altuve - Arguably the fantasy MVP. Ian Kinsler is is also having a great first half, but not on the same level as Altuve.
Third Base: Josh Donaldson - The reigning MVP has having a down year when compared to his previous years, but he is still mashing. Honorable mention to Eduardo Nunez.
Shortstop: Xander Bogaerts - Leading the league in hits and a strong 5-category producer. Kills me that I traded him for Chris Archer in a league before the season started (true story).
Outfield: Mookie Betts, Mike Trout, and Ian Desmond. Two of these three would have been pre-season picks, and then there is Desmond. All three are having great starts to 2016.
Designated Hitter: David Ortiz - No contest.
Starting Pitcher: Chris Sale - He's has a few bumps in the road recently, but has been dominant compared to most other AL starters.
Relief Pitcher: Zach Britton - It's amazing how tough it is to make solid contact against the O's closer.
First Base: Wil Myers - I can't believe it either, but the guy has been fantastic. Honorable mention to Paul Goldschmidt who is also having a great year, just not as great as Myers.
Second base: Daniel Murphy - He really picked up in 2016 where he left off in the 2015 post-season. Not necessarily with the power, but his overall production has been outstanding.
Third Base: Nolan Arenado - Another great year from the Rockies slugger. While he provides no speed, he's close to leading the other four other standard categories in the NL.
Shortstop: Jonathan Villar - Another unexpected name on the list. While Villar doesn't give much power, his league leading SB production make him a fantasy stud in a year where it is tough to find speed.
Outfield: Starling Marte, Gregory Polanco, and Marcell Ozuna. All three have produced at a very high level and above most fantasy owners expectations. Honorable mention to Melvin Upton Jr. who has quietly been a solid contributor across the board.
Starting Pitcher: Clayton Kershaw - Someone please try to argue this one. It's almost a shame there are so many other great SP's in the NL that can't even get a mention because of Kershaw's historic season... almost
Relief Pitcher: Kenley Jansen - Only a couple blips on the radar for Jansen, but he has still been extremely effective closing out games.
