Notes 
 If you're drafting Hosmer, you messed up. He'll give you usable production by season's end.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If nothing else, Votto will play regularly and is still an asset in OBP leagues.
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
It has now been two seasons since Votto has displayed any power, and his batting average has dropped quite a bit each of the last two years. He might not be helpful in fantasy whatsoever, but there is, of course, a chance that he bounces back to become a top 12 first basemen once again.
