Notes 
 Peralta is a .293 career hitter, so it wasn't exactly a surprise that he hit .293 last year. What was shocking, however, was that he hit 30 home runs after never hitting more than 17 in any of his previous four Major League seasons. The power spike was backed up by a ton of hard contact, but his ground ball rate remained high, making a repeat quite unlikely. Buy Peralta for the batting average, and consider anything more than 20 home runs to be a bonus.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Inciarte is not the kind of player that fantasy managers drool over, but he is a strong bet to steal 20 bases and hit 10 home runs while batting close to .300. If he does that again, he'll be well worth starting in standard 12-team mixed leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Peralta batted .293 with a .352 OBP and 14 homers in 2017, but drafters snoozed at his bounce-back campaign. Last year, he batted .293 with a .352 OBP … and 30 homers. And yet he's still fighting for a top-100 spot. Having previously never gone deep more than 17 times in a season, it's safe to project regression given his 29.2% fly-ball rate. An elevated hard-hit rate at least gives him hope of reaching 20 homers, which would make him a useful contributor with a high floor in batting average.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Inciarte had a weird season. After stealing 13 bases through April, his final tally (28) felt like a letdown despite representing a career high. He also batted .265 after weaving averages of .303, .291, and .304 in the previous three seasons. Although little changed in his batted-ball profile, the Statcast data suggests more good fortune before than misfortune in 2018. Yet he's a career .289 hitter who consistently puts the ball in play, and there's a chance he leads off a Braves lineup boasting Ronald Acuna, Freddie Freeman, and Josh Donaldson. If landing and maintaining that slot, he's an immense bargain who can score 100 runs with 10 homers and 25-30 steals. Simply repeating last year's stats-with a couple of steals traded for a few average points-would make Inciarte a worthwhile depth piece at his early going rates.
