Positional scarcity is a huge deal in baseball, and as such, even though fantasy baseball is a game that explicitly ignores defense, it still matters to a certain point. We wouldn't care about Derek Jeter's career if he did it as a first baseman, and we wouldn't draft Jose Reyes in the second round if he were a right fielder.
But, of course, fantasy doesn't always perfectly reflect reality. Sure, you played Edwin Encarnacion at third base in your league for his 150 games and you'll take that all the way to the bank. I've done the same. Still, we all know the only reason they don't call him E5 in Toronto is because he's played all of one game at the position this season.
