Fantasy Impact: Ackley has yet to show much of the promise that he had displayed in the minor leagues since being moved up to the majors. His counting stats last year (14 HRs/8 SBs/64 Rs/65 RBIs) made him serviceable in deeper leagues. However, with his move down to the bottom of the order the runs are going to decrease, lowering his value to AL-Only viability, and without much upside. Draft him in that format if you still believe, but don't expect a breakout year.
