Notes 
 Let's not forget how good Murphy was prior to last season. He was a fourth-round pick in 2018. There's still potential here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Pederson is fine, but he loses value as a platoon bat in a short season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Murphy didn't do all that much either of the last two seasons with just 12 and 13 homers plus 90 missed games combined, but his batting average has still be reliably good. If he can manage to stay healthy, .315 and 20 HRs is not out of the question.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Joc has always had power but last year he kicked it up a notch, reaching 36 bombs in just 450 at-bats. He is one to monitor in the upcoming weeks as his playing time could spike if the Dodgers deal him to Boston in the possible Mookie Betts deal.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 If your team is low on average, there is no better late round pick than Daniel Murphy. His ADP does not reflect his skill, it reflects his inability to stay healthy.
