Players I like more than most

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper forced his way into my overall top 20, and I've confidently penciled him in as National League MVP for 2013. It's safe to say I like him a bit more than most do, whether for fantasy baseball or otherwise. I've also predicted Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish will lead the majors in strikeouts this season and take home the American League Cy Young Award.
But digging deeper down the rankings for players I seem to like more than others, I keep settling in at first base, especially on a wealthy, broken-down slugger for the team I root the most for -- real life over fantasy, every time -- and wonder why so many others simply refuse to see what I do statistically.
