Notes 
 Some people think that EE could lose value this season because he's moving to a worse hitter's park. Although it could cost him a few HR he should still be a force in the R, HR & RBI departments with a solid AVG or one that won't hurt you.
Justin Klein - The Fake Baseball
Although Longoria has been around for a while, he is by no means done being a big-time fantasy asset. Last season may have been the best of his career with 36 homers, so perhaps he takes another step forward in 2017.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Over past 5 seasons, he ranks top 5 in MLB in HRs (193), RBI (550) and OPS (.912) but the splits show that he enjoyed the home cooking of Toronto's Rogers Centre a fair bit more than his road contests, so move to CLE should curb the EE enthusiasm a little
Brandon Funston - Yahoo
 
 There has been no power hitter in baseball more consistent than EE over the past five seasons. He has at least 34 homers and 98 RBIs in every season during that stretch and while he should take a minor step backwards in his move to Cleveland, he can be trusted to produce in a big way once again this season.
