Notes 
 In OBP leagues, he's a Top 50 player. It's hard to expect a repeat of a .281 average from Santana in his 34-year-old season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Death. Taxes. Edwin EncarnaciĆ³n hitting bombs. Great landing spot in Chi-town for him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 After a lousy 2018, it seemed Santana's bat had finally hit the end of career wall, but he bounced back to a tune of 34 homers, 110 runs and saw his batting average soar from .229 to .281. All are expected to regress in 2019, but not enough to make him worth passing on in the 12th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Encarnacion is most certainly getting up there in age but his power persists as he knocked 30+ homers again for the eighth straight season. As we all know, the batting average won't be great but we can put up with that for 100+ RBIs and 80+ runs to go with the power.
