Notes 
 Every single season, fantasy owners draft Rendon in the fourth or fifth round and every single year he outproduces that draft value. 2018 was no different, as he hit .308 with 24 homers, 92 RBIs and 88 runs scored in just 136 games. Don't make the mistake of letting him slip by you in the fourth again this season
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
 Rendon was the only third baseman to hit over .300 last season, and one of four third baseman to accomplish that feat in 2017. He's as good a bet for batting average as it gets at the position, and is also fully capable of delivering 25 home runs with good run and RBI totals. His stolen base totals have evaporated over the last couple years, but that shouldn't prevent him from again being a top-40 overall hitter in standard roto and categories leagues.
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
 Diminishing speed and non-elite power make Rendon boring, but he's still a tremendous hitter who has batted above .300 and slugged over .500 in each of the last two seasons. After missing time with a bruised toe earlier in 2018, he posted a .391 wOBA (a mark matched by Jose Ramirez and Nolan Arenado all season) since the start of June. Stealing twice in three tries is a major bummer, but don't underestimate the worth of a .300, 25-homer hitter who could offer 90-100 runs and RBI apiece in the heart of Washington's lineup.
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.
