Notes 
 Dozier may not have had the best season last year, but he still hit 21 homers with 12 steals. The batting average is expected to rise in 2019 and let's not forget that he has 40 homer, 20 steal upside.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Schoop takes a hit this season in home ballpark factor, but even still, has been a consistent enough source of power that fantasy owners can accept his .233 batting average from last year. Keep in mind, also, he carried a .293 mark in 2017 so the upside is there for a big season again.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Coming off back-to-back seasons as a top-25 overall player in standard 5x5 leagues, Dozier really struggled in 2018, hitting just .215 while both his HR and SB totals fell as well. It was an all-around frustrating season, but there are plenty of reasons for optimism for a rebound. Dozier's batted ball profile remained basically the same as past seasons, but his BABIP was much lower than usual. He also had to adjust to the National League midway through the season, and was playing through a bone bruise that likely impacted his performance. Now healthy and a bit more familiar with NL pitchers, Dozier will be a good value in fantasy drafts if he comes anywhere close to his past level of performance.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 
 It was a lost year for Dozier, and he still came out with 21 homers and 12 steals. That wasn't worth much when paired with a .215 batting average, but the second baseman said he was playing through a knee injury all season. In two seasons before the 2018 downturn, he hit .269 with a combined 76 blasts and 34 steals. Banking on a health-enabled rebound is an interesting risk for those who can risk a subpar average or play in an OBP/points league.
