Notes 
 Urshela made the loss of Miguel Andújar bearable, as he enjoyed a breakout in his own right that the numbers back up. He should be the everyday starter at third as long as he's able to maintain his production.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It was a late-career breakout for Canha last season, and that's not really a boost of confidence for his long-term outlooks, but he's a safe enough option as an OF 4 this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Nobody seems to want to give Canha credit for the changes in his approach last year, but you're selling yourself short if you don't. Canha cut his swing percentage on pitches outside the zone way down last year, and the results were impressive, with 26 home runs and a .273 batting average in just 126 games. Slated to bat fifth for the A's, there's every reason for Canha to put up solid all-around numbers, and he's essentially forgotten in fantasy drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Great pick at ADP. Should bat in the heart of the lineup and really came into his own last season as he became more patient. Even better OBP league player.
