Notes 
 The Rockies are still going to find a way to screw up either Ryan McMahon or Garrett Hampson even with the DH. If Daniel Murphy can DH, then McMahon should see everyday playing time.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 McMahon didn't play every day as some expected but he still managed 24 homers. With more playing time this year, that could spike to 30+ and his .250 BA is likely to improve as well considering his aptitude in that department throughout the minors.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
  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.
