Notes 
 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
Braun isn't often healthy, but when he is on the field, he has continued to rake over the last three years. In that time, his per 162 game average is 30 homers, 18 steals and a .279 batting average. If he can finally stay on the field, fantasy owners will hit the jackpot this year.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
Braun is no longer the dominant fantasy outfielder he once was, but he looks to be criminally underrated at this stage of his career. You can't expect him to play more than 120-140 games, but Braun has proven over the last couple seasons that he's capable of producing 20+ HRs and 10+ SBs even while missing a quarter of a season, and his batting average could even pop back up into the .280+ range after two straight low-BABIP seasons. Hitting in a terrific lineup and favorable home ballpark, Braun (ADP 203.7) should be able to again produce numbers that resemble those of OFs going much earlier in drafts like George Springer (ADP 54.3), Mitch Haniger (ADP 81.0), and Justin Upton (ADP 85.7).
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
  A regressing Braun still offers value. Despite posting career lows in batting average (.254), OBP (.313) and wRC+ (105), the veteran still stockpiled 20 homers and 11 steals last year. He faces far less competition for playing time now that the Brewers have traded Domingo Santana and Keon Broxton, so he'll go as far as his health takes him. The 35-year-old isn't washed just yet; he notched a .296 xBA and .515 xSLG, per Statcast. He should at least fare closer to 2017's .268/.336/.487 slash line, and a 25/15 campaign isn't out of the question if he could piece together 550 plate appearances in around 130 games. A massive discrepancy between his consensus ADP (210) and ECR (141) reveals an intriguing buy-low opportunity.
