  1. Are some of them really top prospects though? Hilliard is 26 and was never a guy listed in any of the Top 100 lists. McDaniel and Longenhagen have him at a 45 FV and view him more as a role player/platoon player. I see Rodgers as a top prospect.
  2. I’m mostly impressed by the 4 K in 27 AB. This guy is usually Babe Ruth in spring training but not striking out so much anymore would be nice.
  3. The main reason his ADP is what it is isn’t just the power. It’s because 1B isn’t a deep position. If Olson was a DH or OF, his ADP would be lower. What is more relevant than his production compared to other power hitters is his production compared to other 1B. Some have brought up the argument to avoid that entire group of Olson/Goldy/Rizzo/Abreu and wait for Hoskins or Sano. It’s a risky strategy because if you miss out on those guys, you will end up with a Voit, E5 or Walker as your 1B.
  4. Twins hitters. Second in the Majors in Runs, first in HR, second in OPS, third in wRC+ last season and then they added Donaldson to their lineup. Yet their highest ranked hitter in ADP is Cruz (85) and he’s really underrated. Even with possible regression I want me some shares of Cruz, Rosario (92 ADP), Donaldson (96), Sano (118), Kepler (141), Buxton (158) and Polanco (157) at those ADPs.
  5. I’ll gladly take him at his ADP. He may lack upside but he’ll hit for decent average, 15 HR and he’ll have his usual 60/70 RBI. That’s all I need from my catcher position.
  6. All my IL spots might be taken by the first week of April with so many guys getting hurt already....
  7. I have no idea how legit this guy is but 4-6 weeks would be pretty significant.
  8. He was diagnosed with the calf strain on February 26th. Since the 27th his ADP in NFBC is 81.
  9. His projections and ADP are the main reason he won’t be on any of my teams. There’s a bunch of hitters going around that same 140/150 ADP that I prefer over him (C.Santana, Franmil, Dahl, Lux, C.Seager, J.Polanco, Gurriel Jr, Buxton, Sal Perez).
  10. Wrong. That honestly depends on league settings. Hoskins was the #42 overall player in one of my leagues two seasons ago and he had a .246 AVG. E5 was the #78 overall player that year and he also batted .246. Even Gallo was a Top 100 player that year and he batted .206 and so was Olson and his .247 AVG. You can have plenty of Fantasy value despite a low average as long as your other counting stats are there (HR, RBI, R).
  11. Steamer, THE BAT and ATC have him hitting only .225/.230. They’re buying the power but none of the projection systems seem to think he can hit for AVG. Last season his AVG was .253 but his xBA was only .225.
  12. What a shame. He was one of my favorite 1B targets.
