Notes 
 Myers will play the outfield in San Diego this year, but will carry over third base eligibility from last season, making him one of the very few options for speed at 3B. He averaged 29 home runs and 24 stolen bases between 2016 and 2017, and was on pace to again go 20-20 last year if not for missing nearly half the season due to a host of different injuries. You can't expect Myers to do much better than his .253 career batting average, but his combination of power and speed makes him a sneaky contender to finish as a top-12 third baseman in roto/categories leagues if he can stay healthy.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
McCutchen's strikeout rate has grown and his batting averaged has dipped over the last few seasons, but he has continued to be a very reliable source of 20+ homers, 10+ SBs, and solid run and RBI totals. Now, at age 32, he is finally set to play a full season in a hitter's park while surrounded by a potent lineup. McCutchen's numbers may fluctuate a bit based on where he ends up hitting in the lineup, but it's not unreasonable to expect his power and run production numbers to trend upward a bit in the best hitting environment of his long career.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 After seemingly shredding the injury-prone designation with two fully healthy seasons, Myers' 2018 kept stalling due to separate oblique and foot injuries. He followed 28/28 and 30/20 campaigns with 11 homers and 13 steals in 83 games, so it's easy to envision a 20/20 rebound if healthy. Myers also added third-base eligibility to his portfolio, making him an intriguing bounce-back pick often available around pick 100.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Even in a down year, McCutchen reached 20 homers for the eighth straight season and stole double-digit bases (14) for the ninth time in 10 MLB campaigns. He played most of 2018 in San Francisco's extreme pitcher park, so the power slide may be a matter of his surroundings rather than old age. When moving to the far friendlier Yankee Stadium, his slugging percentage boosted from .415 to .471. He picked another nice venue in Philadelphia, where he should bat at the top or heart of a revamped lineup that also added Jean Segura, J.T. Realmuto, and Bryce Harper. He's still a bargain going well after the top 100, so pounce now before Harper's signing drives up the price.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Myers is commonly thought of as injury prone and last year's 79 missed games certainly doesn't help. With that said, he averages 23 homers and 20 steals over the last three years even despite last year's disappointing season. There is major upside here even though his batting average is almost certain to stay under .260 again.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
McCutchen might not be that first round pick he once was when we were getting 30 homers, 20 steals and a .320 batting average, but he is still a plenty capable fantasy asset. He is as durable as they come and has managed 20+ homers in 8 straight seasons. Not only that. but he still steals double-digit bags per year and is moving into by far the best ballpark of his career so don't be surprised if we get a resurgence.
