Blackmon has been a fantasy stud this season, so it's no surprise that he's on this list of top outfielders from week three.

Mike Trout is fighting for an AL MVP award this season and he will get one if he keeps up the pace he's on. The Angels' outfielder was a top-two pick in all fantasy drafts this season and there's no doubts as to why.

Week 3 Stats: .280 AVG, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 5 Runs, 2 SB, .357 OBP

Cespedes is fighting through some nagging injuries, but the outfielder is a must-start at all times because he can hit for some big-time power.

Week 3 Stats: .292 AVG, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 5 Runs, .414 OBP

Jon Jay isn't the first name that comes to mind when you think of Cardinals outfielders, but he was the most successful during week three. Sleeper pick up right here.

Week 3 Stats: .381 AVG, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 3 Runs, 1 SB, .409 OBP

Soriano might be getting up there in age, but he's no stranger to success -- exactly what he's experiencing right now. The Yankees' veteran outfielder is starting to hit for average as well as power this season.

Week 3 Stats: .375 AVG, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 5 Runs, .423 OBP

10. Alex Rios, Texas Rangers

Alex Rios isn't hitting for much power this season, but the 33-year-old outfielder is hitting a solid average and has over 10 RBI through the first few weeks of 2014. He's owned in all leagues, but don't be shy to trade for him as his power numbers will surely increase.

Week 3 Stats: .367 AVG, 0 HR, 3 RBI, 3 Runs, .367 OBP

9. Nelson Cruz, Baltimore Orioles

It took a while for Nelson Cruz to be signed this offseason, but in many fantasy drafts, he was a late-round sleeper with huge potential. That's exactly what has happened thus far in the 2014 season -- potential paying off.

Week 3 Stats: .333 AVG, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 5 Runs, .391 OBP

8. Adam Jones, Baltimore Orioles

Yes, another Oriole on this list. Baltimore is going to have many batters on top fantasy player lists for the remainder of the season, so don't be surprised. Jones didn't show any power in week three, but he will still extremely productive.

Week 3 Stats: .429 AVG, 0 HR, 3 RBI, 2 Runs, 2 SB, .455 OBP

7. Josh Reddick, Oakland Athletics

The beard may not be as prominent as it was a year ago, but Josh Reddick's bat is back to where it was a couple seasons ago. Oakland was hoping to get the 2012 version of Josh Reddick, but week three was his only solid week thus far. Don't buy into him just yet, folks.

Week 3 Stats: .389 AVG, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 3 Runs, .450 OBP

6. Corey Hart, Seattle Mariners

Corey Hart is known as one of the most respected players in the league and his game is pretty well-respected, too. The new Mariners outfielder had himself quite the week three as he hit .400, but the Mariners didn't win a single game -- having lost six straight.

Week 3 Stats: .400 AVG, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 2 Runs, .478 OBP

5. Leonys Martin, Texas Rangers

Leonys Martin isn't a big name on the Rangers, but he is a guy that has been contributing a solid amount this season. Martin had a breakout week in week three and he could be a solid spot start for your fantasy team.

Week 3 Stats: .400 AVG, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 3 Runs, 1 SB, .455 OBP

4. Ryan Ludwick, Cincinnati Reds

Thirty-five-year-old Ryan Ludwick hasn't lost a step for the Reds this season as he's hitting over .300 and has shown some power as well. He's only owned in 1.1 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues, so if you're looking for a solid bench player who could potentially fill in for an injured player, Ludwick is your guy.

Week 3 Stats: .429 AVG, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 2 Runs, .467 OBP

3. Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers

Despite the whole steroid scandal that Braun was involved in last season that saw him miss a few months because of suspension, he has been a fan favorite in Milwaukee this season. Well, he's been loved by his fantasy owners as well. We all knew he was going to be just as solid as he was before his suspension.

Week 3 Stats: .308 AVG, 3 HR, 4 RBI, 7 Runs, .357 OBP

2. Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins

Giancarlo Stanton, besides being one of my favorite players, is probably the best fantasy outfielder of any for the entire season thus far. The Marlins' slugger has been fantastic every single week and he is putting together an MVP-type season -- even recording a walk-off grand slam this past week. That is, if the Marlins can overcome all odds and make the playoffs.

Week 3 Stats: .333 AVG, 2 HR, 10 RBI, 6 Runs, .481 OBP

The Marlins could be scary in a few seasons with the talented young team that they have -- a few pretty solid young pitchers and a couple solid outfielders. Ozuna, like Stanton, had a monster week in South Beach and had the best average of any outfielder with over 15 at-bats.

Week 3 Stats: .474 AVG, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 6 Runs, .522 OBP
