Notes 
 Death. Taxes. Edwin EncarnaciĆ³n hitting bombs. Great landing spot in Chi-town for him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
First base seems to be Walker's job to lose. He was buried for the longest time before emerging in Arizona that we have to give him another shot for a full season to see if he's legitimate or not.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Encarnacion is most certainly getting up there in age but his power persists as he knocked 30+ homers again for the eighth straight season. As we all know, the batting average won't be great but we can put up with that for 100+ RBIs and 80+ runs to go with the power.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Walker finished as a top 15 first basemen with a near-identical stat-line to Paul Goldschmidt. He slowed down in the second half and the batting average won't be useful but unless Seth Beer forces Arizona's hand, Walker should again get 25+ homers for fantasy owners this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Nice late round 1B or CI option. Hits the ball very hard so the power should remain.
