 Entrenched in a heated battle for Colorado's second-base gig, Hampson has teased immense fantasy upside with three homers and five steals in his first 13 spring games. The career .315/.389/.457 minor league hitter has swiped 125 bases in three professional seasons, so he could be a major difference-maker if given the opportunity to start regularly while calling Coors Field home. Drafters still must be careful, as Ryan McMahon and Pat Valakia are also making compelling cases for playing time this spring. Hampson, however, would help fantasy investors the most, and thus warrants a late-round gamble.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
You may not feel sexy drafting Ryan Zimmerman, but he is just one year removed from hitting 36 homers with a .303 batting average and 108 RBIs. Last year wasn't bad either with an .824 OPS, but he caught the injury bug again. He is a classic boom or bust late-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 The Rockies' likely starter at second base on Opening Day, Hampson has managed at least 35 SBs with a .300 batting average in each of his three minor league seasons to date. He likely won't be good for more than around 10 HRs over a full season, but that hardly matters if he is piling up hits and stolen bases while playing half his games in Coors Field. He's a very enticing sleeper, especially in roto/categories leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
It appears most drafters are mistakenly throwing in the towel on Zimmerman. Following 2017's unexpected return to stardom, an oblique strain limited him to just 85 games. While his batting average fell from .303 to .264, he still delivered when healthy. Per Statcast, only Joey Gallo, J.D. Martinez, and Khris Davis garnered more barrels per plate appearance than Zimmerman's 9.9%, which tied Mookie Betts. Only Aaron Judge hit a higher percentage of his batted balls at least 95 mph than the first baseman's 52.8. This thunderous contact yielded results when he batted .295/.374/.538 in 52 games after returning from a lengthy injury absence. Forget a 2017 repeat; drafters simply need a higher average in around 115 games when purchasing him off the clearance rack.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 The signing of Daniel Murphy should cause Hampson's ECR to drop another 50 spots, as that transaction shifts Ryan McMahon over to second base. Hampson could force the Rockies hands with a strong Spring, but more than likely, he won't get the call until someone hits the DL. At that point, McMahon could slide over to first, third or the outfield. If it is Story that goes down, Hampson would fill the gap. He could eventually be a better version of D.J. LeMahieu offensively, posting a batting average near .300 with more power and speed. Right away, he will merely hold his own in the batting average department while contributing nearly 30 steals per 162 games.
