If you're a fantasy baseball junkie, this time of year has to be the most exciting for you. The MLB season is in full-swing and after just two weeks of play, it seems like the league is gearing up for quite the exciting summer.

Let's take a look at 10 first basemen who exceeded expectations in week two and who you should consider acquiring.

Chris Davis is off to somewhat of a slow start this season, under his recent standards, but it's always going to be hard to live up to expectations after a 53-home run campaign.

Week 2 Stats: .286 AVG, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 4 Runs, 1 SB, .370 OBP

9. Joe Mauer, Minnesota Twins

Joe Mauer isn't playing like he is used to, missing his former smash brother, Justin Morneau. However, Mauer is filling in nicely as the team's first baseman and catcher.

Week 2 Stats: .292 AVG, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 2 Runs, 1 SB, .393 OBP

8. Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds

Joey Votto is one of the best hitters in baseball and has been for years. The Reds' first baseman is at it once again in 2014, hitting the cover off the ball.

Week 2 Stats: .250 AVG, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 5 Runs, .423 OBP

7. Jose Abreu, Chicago White Sox

Jose Abreu waited a week into his MLB career to completely break out. Along with the rest of the White Sox, Abreu completely dominated MLB pitching in week two -- when it came to the power game.

Week 2 Stats: .250 AVG, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 5 Runs, .344 OBP

6. Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels

Albert Pujols has dropped off considerably in recent years, but the veteran slugger is looking to make somewhat of a resurgence in 2014. The first baseman for the Angels is trying to show that his career is far from over.

Week 2 Stats: .280 AVG, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 4 Runs, .379 OBP

5. Mike Napoli, Boston Red Sox

Napoli was a big reason the Red Sox won the World Series a year ago. If he keeps up his hitting at the level it was in week two, Boston might be headed back to the October Classic.

Week 2 Stats: .333 AVG, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 Runs, .400 OBP

4. Adam LaRoche, Washington Nationals

Adam LaRoche seems to be as hot as anybody in baseball right now. He is a big reason that his Nationals are making a strong push for first place in the NL East and are a top-three World Series favorite.

Week 2 Stats: .360 AVG, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 6 Runs, .407 OBP

3. Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs

Anthony Rizzo is one of those young players that will either wow you in a good way, or disappoint you. He's off to a solid start in 2014 and let's hope the rest of the Cubs follow suit.
