 Hernandez may be about as boring as it gets, but you should be glad to welcome 15 homers, 20 steals and 90 runs onto your roster. That is the production he gave fantasy owners last year and you may want to keep in mind that he had a .294 batting average the two previous seasons.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Entrenched in a heated battle for Colorado's second-base gig, Hampson has teased immense fantasy upside with three homers and five steals in his first 13 spring games. The career .315/.389/.457 minor league hitter has swiped 125 bases in three professional seasons, so he could be a major difference-maker if given the opportunity to start regularly while calling Coors Field home. Drafters still must be careful, as Ryan McMahon and Pat Valakia are also making compelling cases for playing time this spring. Hampson, however, would help fantasy investors the most, and thus warrants a late-round gamble.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Here's a case of launch angle not always helping. Hernandez elevated his launch angle from 3.3 to 9.4, and the philosophy shift produced a career-high 15 homers. He also, however, batted .253 after back-to-back .294 campaigns. The drop could potentially cost the second baseman his spot atop a Philadelphia lineup that has added Jean Segura, Andrew McCutchen, J.T. Realmuto, and Bryce Harper. An extra handful of homers isn't worth the average sacrifice for fantasy investors either, so here's to Hernandez resetting his approach and going back to being an on-base machine who could easily score 100 runs if batting leadoff. Regardless of his plate approach, he has delivered 15-19 steals in each of the past four seasons, making him a steady middle-infield target.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
The Rockies' likely starter at second base on Opening Day, Hampson has managed at least 35 SBs with a .300 batting average in each of his three minor league seasons to date. He likely won't be good for more than around 10 HRs over a full season, but that hardly matters if he is piling up hits and stolen bases while playing half his games in Coors Field. He's a very enticing sleeper, especially in roto/categories leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  The signing of Daniel Murphy should cause Hampson's ECR to drop another 50 spots, as that transaction shifts Ryan McMahon over to second base. Hampson could force the Rockies hands with a strong Spring, but more than likely, he won't get the call until someone hits the DL. At that point, McMahon could slide over to first, third or the outfield. If it is Story that goes down, Hampson would fill the gap. He could eventually be a better version of D.J. LeMahieu offensively, posting a batting average near .300 with more power and speed. Right away, he will merely hold his own in the batting average department while contributing nearly 30 steals per 162 games.
