Notes 
 If you're drafting Hosmer, you messed up. He'll give you usable production by season's end.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Let's not forget how good Murphy was prior to last season. He was a fourth-round pick in 2018. There's still potential here.
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
Murphy didn't do all that much either of the last two seasons with just 12 and 13 homers plus 90 missed games combined, but his batting average has still be reliably good. If he can manage to stay healthy, .315 and 20 HRs is not out of the question.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  If your team is low on average, there is no better late round pick than Daniel Murphy. His ADP does not reflect his skill, it reflects his inability to stay healthy.
