Notes 
 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
Pederson is fine, but he loses value as a platoon bat in a short season.
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
Joc has always had power but last year he kicked it up a notch, reaching 36 bombs in just 450 at-bats. He is one to monitor in the upcoming weeks as his playing time could spike if the Dodgers deal him to Boston in the possible Mookie Betts deal.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Canha took a big a big step forward last year, improving his batting average 25 points while he managed 26 homers in just 126 games. That number could become nearly 40 with a full season but the batting average is more than likely going to regress a bit.
Bobby Sylvester - 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.
