Notes 
 If you're drafting Hosmer, you messed up. He'll give you usable production by season's end.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
With power being downplayed this year in a sprint of a season, Cron becomes more and more attractive as a late-round play if you wait at first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Since Hosmer went to San Diego, his batting average hasn't been anywhere near as reliable as it once was. The power is still in the 20 homer per season range but his primary calling card is the durability that affords fantasy owners 90+ RBIs per season and plenty of runs.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Cron had 30 homers in 2018 and followed it up with 25 last year despite just 125 games played. Should he see a full season of health, 35 or even 40 is a possibility but the cost is a medicore at best batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Tremendous advanced statistics in 2019 shine a bright light on his 2020 outlook. Should play everyday in the heart of the Tigers lineup. Solid late round option.
