Notes 
 Andrus was downright awful in the 97 games he played last year, batting .256 with 6 homers and 5 steals. With full health, however, don't be surprised if he returns to the .300 hitting, 20 homer, 25 steal player that finished 2017 as a top fantasy shortstop.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 
 After years of producing stolen bases but little else, Andrus rode a career high 20 HRs to finish as the number one fantasy shortstop in 2017. But he crashed back to Earth last year, managing just six homers and five steals across 97 games. The 2017 season is certainly looking like an outlier, but it won't cost much to see if he can bounce back.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 
 Andrus went from 20 homers and 25 steals to six and five, respectively. The speed drop-off is especially jarring, as he had reached at least 20 steals in each of his last nine MLB seasons. The 30-year-old should bounce back a bit from an elbow injury that contained him to 97 games, but there's some concern since he attempted just eight steals in 2017's second half. While drafters shouldn't pay a significant price for a recovery, there's enough of a track record to bite as an inexpensive middle infielder.
