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
Moncada has both double-digit power and speed, but the batting average is lackluster. You can make the case that he has more potential as a former #1 overall prospect, but more likely, the holes in his game will prove too much for a big breakout to be a possibility.
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
A low average (.235) disrupted by a 33.4% strikeout rate again blocked Moncada's leap to stardom. He'll need to improve his contact skills significantly to reach his superstar ceiling, but the hype has quickly fizzled for the elite talent capable of a massive breakthrough a la Javier Baez in 2018. Drafters, however, should only draft Moncada if willing to accept a potential .230-.240 hitter in hopes of getting 15-20 homers and steals apiece. The second baseman might gain another position, as the White Sox are preparing to try him out at third.
Andrew Gould - 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.
