Updated throughout today to reflect posted lineups. Still, Blackmon's hitting skills are improving, as he set career bests in isolated power. If there's a worry about his , it's his waning stolen base trends, as a.
Regard Blackmon as a building-block type, but don't get carried away chasing his Paul Goldschmidt , Ari 1B. One of the most consistent players in baseball, Goldschmidt has averaged. With the exception of his campaign, which ended 54 games prematurely due to a fractured left hand after Goldschmidt was hit by a pitch, he has rarely strayed far from those numbers annually. It's the steals that'll probably catch your eye, as Goldschmidt has stolen at least 15 bases in five different seasons -- an unusual feat for a first baseman.
He's a category-filler whose contact rate is better than your typical slugger's, which makes him a first-rounder in Rotisserie and a strong choice in points-based leagues as well, though he's more of a marginal first-rounder there, if only because the position becomes deeper in points-based leagues. Carlos Correa , Hou SS. The torn left thumb ligament that cost him 42 of the Astros' games during the second half of last season was frustrating to his fantasy managers, but it also might have kept Correa's anticipated price tag within range of him becoming a relative value pick.
He's sneaking up on people as a budding star in the on-field game -- though his playoff success did raise his profile there -- as well as the fantasy game. Before he got hurt, Correa sported the game's eighth-best batting average. Correa also became only the second shortstop in history with three homer seasons through his age season, joining Alex Rodriguez, the player to whom he was most often compared at the time of his No. Now just 23, Correa has first-round upside, yet he might sneak beyond that tier in drafts, which would make him a relative bargain.
Baseball is just better when its biggest stars stay completely healthy. Stanton, who missed only one game in due to injury for hamstring cramps in late May set career bests in games played and plate appearances , giving him an expanded opportunity to display his best-in-baseball raw power. Display it he did: Stanton hit 59 home runs in one of the worst home run environments in baseball in Miami, capturing the National League's MVP award in the process.
Don't entirely attribute it to good fortune, though, as Stanton's adjustment to a closed stance also helped him post a career-best 73 percent contact rate, making him a much more complete slugger. For an encore, he gets to flash those same skills in one of the most homer-friendly environments in baseball, having been traded to the New York Yankees in December.
Stanton is in a dream circumstance, and while his prospects of repeating couldn't be much better, it's important to remember that he has missed There's risk here, but the power upside is monstrous.
He's coming off a historic seven-year run, during which he has captured three Cy Young awards , and , an MVP award and four major league ERA crowns and has averaged 17 wins and strikeouts with a 2. So why is it even a question as to whether Kershaw is the No. Back problems have shortened each of his past two seasons, costing him a combined 96 Dodgers games and limiting him to 48 regular-season starts, only 13 of which have come after the All-Star break.
That's an issue particularly in head-to-head leagues, in which Kershaw is the type of pitcher who can almost single-handedly lead your team to the playoffs, only to disappear at that most inopportune time -- said playoffs.
Depending on your risk tolerance, Kershaw stakes a claim to the No. Max Scherzer , Wsh SP. Let the debate begin: Who was the best pitcher of the past five seasons? If WAR, wins or strikeouts is your measure of choice, it's Scherzer, as he's the major league leader in each of those categories, with Expert Insights A collection of player recommendations for the upcoming slate.
