Notes 
 First base seems to be Walker's job to lose. He was buried for the longest time before emerging in Arizona that we have to give him another shot for a full season to see if he's legitimate or not.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If you're drafting Hosmer, you messed up. He'll give you usable production by season's end.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Walker finished as a top 15 first basemen with a near-identical stat-line to Paul Goldschmidt. He slowed down in the second half and the batting average won't be useful but unless Seth Beer forces Arizona's hand, Walker should again get 25+ homers for fantasy owners this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Since Hosmer went to San Diego, his batting average hasn't been anywhere near as reliable as it once was. The power is still in the 20 homer per season range but his primary calling card is the durability that affords fantasy owners 90+ RBIs per season and plenty of runs.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Nice late round 1B or CI option. Hits the ball very hard so the power should remain.
