Notes 
 Benintendi is a spectacular real life player, but in fantasy, he was extremely similar to Jean Segura who happens to be going five rounds later. The arrow is pointing up for Benintendi, but not enough to warrant a top 30 draft pick
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Looking for 40 homers? Draft Davis and write it in ink. He has knocked 133 over the last three seasons with 335 RBIs in that time. The floor is as high as you'll find in the first five rounds but the batting average is almost certainly going to be around .250 again
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 At 24 years old, Benintendi has yet to experience a major breakthrough in terms of home runs or stolen bases, but he's nonetheless settled in as a valuably reliable contributor across every offensive category. At this stage of his career, it's fair to expect more of the same -- close to 20-20 with an average in the .280-.290 range and strong run production numbers in Boston's loaded lineup. That was enough to make Benintendi a top-20 hitter in standard 5x5 formats last season, and should be again this year.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Consistency may be the most under-appreciated asset in fantasy baseball. Davis isn't young and flashy, and he won't help you in terms of speed or batting average, but he has delivered 40+ home runs and 100+ RBIs in three straight seasons, establishing himself as an incredibly reliable top-40 hitter in standard roto/categories leagues. In fact, he was so good last year that he finished as the 11th-best hitter. That will likely prove to be his high water mark, but there is little risk associated with using a fourth round pick on Davis.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Great in every category but not spectacular in one, a player of Benintendi's ilk typically doesn't merit top-25 consideration. But 20/20 candidates are hard to come by, especially if they provide a high batting-average floor and can score 100 times atop a loaded Red Sox lineup. The 24-year-old also might not have peaked yet, as he has improved his strikeout and walk rates each season. While he offers a relatively safe profile, this possible upside forces drafters to pay a steep price to snag him around the Round 2/3 turn.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Davis' consistently extends his uncanny streak of batting .247 in four straight seasons. He's also the only player to deposit at least 40 homers in each of the last three seasons. MLB's league-wide batting average dipped to .248 last season, so Oakland's slugger won't torpedo that category. And while power is now easier to find later in drafts, elite power remains a major asset. Having only played 11 games in the outfield, he won't have a position in some leagues. That utility-only label could turn him into a value, as drafters are needlessly reticent of taking such players.
