Notes 
 Gordon is going to absolutely destroy you in two categories and his batting average isn't anything to write home about. With that said, the potential of 60 stolen bases makes him worth the price of admission toward the middle of drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
 Gordon averaged around 60 steals per season from 2014-2017, but that number plummeted to 30 steals in 141 games last season. The .268 batting average he produced last season is probably due for some positive correction into the .280 range, but Gordon is a major drag in the HR and RBI categories, so he'll need to get his stolen base total back up into the 50-60 range to be worth deploying in standard 5x5 leagues of 12 teams or fewer. It's tough to say whether that will happen as Gordon approaches 31 years old, so he's a boom-or-bust selection if he goes in the single digit rounds of fantasy drafts.
Andrew Seifter - 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.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Gordon is great at running, but not quite as good at reaching base. Despite the complete lack of power, his profile was palatable when consisting of a high average, plethora of runs, and 60 steals. Last season, however, he batted .268 with 62 runs and 30 steals. He was caught stealing (12) more times than he walked (nine), and the 30-year-old can't afford as many misfires with a .288 OBP. His Statcast speed score (29.0) didn't drop much from 2017 (29.0), so it's possible he bounces back to 40-45 steals if a few more dribbles roll his way. It's probably not worth the risk unless desperate for speed.
