Featured Pros: MLB Bounce-Back Candidates
Name one hitter you expect to have a bounce-back season after disappointing fantasy owners in 2017
Ian Desmond went .274/.326/.375 with seven homeruns and 15 home runs in an injury shortened year after hurting his hand in spring training. With a return to health, Desmond should regain his 20+ home run stroke and be a reliable source of power and speed with the aid Coors and a fantastic lineup around him.

Name one pitcher you expect to have a bounce-back season after disappointing fantasy owners in 2017
When you look on the surface, Jameson Taillon's numbers weren't great when he returned from testicular cancer surgery in June last year, but his underlying statistics were much better with a 3.22 FIP, a decent strikeout rate, and great home run suppression. He got unlucky in the BABIP and strand rate departments. With a full healthy season under his belt, he should take a big step forward.
