With the 2020 MLB season rapidly approaching, it's time to begin preparation for this year's fantasy baseball drafts. Here at The Duel, we'll have you covered every step of the way.

We've already got our top 100 fantasy baseball players for the 2020 MLB season, but now we're going to take things a step further and break it down by position.

With that in mind, here are the top-10 third basemen for fantasy baseball in 2020.

Fantasy Baseball 3B Rankings

10. Yoan Moncada, Chicago White Sox

9. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Toronto Blue Jays

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was one of the most-hyped prospects in recent memory. Despite being saddled with some pretty unrealistic expectations, Guerrero delivered a solid rookie campaign. He hit 15 home runs and had 69 RBI in 123 games played. At just 20 years old, Guerrero's appearance on this list has more to do with what he can become rather than what he is right now. But even if he doesn't realize his full potential in 2020, he should at least be a solid source of home runs and RBI.

8. DJ LeMahieu, New York Yankees

7. Manny Machado, San Diego Padres

6. Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs

5. Anthony Rendon, Los Angeles Angels

4. Rafael Devers, Boston Red Sox

Rafael Devers broke out in a big way last season. The 23-year-old third basemen set career highs pretty much across the board, smashing 32 home runs while hitting .311 and driving in 115 runs. His .377 weighted on-base average (wOBA) tied him for the seventh-best mark at the position, and he had the position's fifth-best slugging percentage. At such a young age, Devers certainly has room to grow, and he should once again benefit from playing within one of the best lineups in baseball – even with Mookie Betts now playing in LA.

3. Jose Ramirez, Cleveland Indians

2. Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies

Nolan Arenado has been top eight in NL MVP voting in five consecutive seasons, and he's undoubtedly one of the best third baseman in the league. While there are some trade rumors circulating about him, Arenado should be just fine regardless of where he ends up. His .392 wOBA was third best at the hot corner, and he was 12th best at the position in hard hit percentage. A potential trade could ding his value a bit, but Arenado has averaged 40.0 homers and 124.0 RBI with a .300 batting average over the past five years, and he should remain one of the best assets in fantasy.

1. Alex Bregman, Houston Astros
