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
Piscotty waited to get dropped in most leagues before delivering a bounce-back season. After batting .160 in May, he hit .286 with 24 homers and a .386 wOBA (.365 wOBA) from June 1 onward. Given his down 2017 (.235, 9 HRs), drafters should seek a near repeat of 2018 rather than extrapolating his late surge to a full season. Last year's 27 homers already set a career high, so aim for 25 from a solid, mid-tier option.
Andrew Gould - 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
 
 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.
