Notes 
 Joey Gallo, even if he feels that the Rangers' new stadium will be a pitcher's park, still has to be one of the betting favorites every year to lead the league in home runs. The multi-position eligibility that Gallo brings makes him even more valuable, but beware that he will drain your batting average quite a bit. If he can hit around .260, he's going to be a really valuable asset. In OBP leagues, he's a top 50 player. If you're a betting person and want a dark horse MVP candidate, Gallo is your guy.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's refershing to see Michael Brantley go inside the top 100 in ADP here, as he's shown that he can be healthy over the past two years. With pitchers getting pushed up in the early rounds, there are good hitters who you can take at an enormous value, and they don't get more valuable than Brantley, who will help you in four of the five categories. However, it shouldn't surprise you if he gave you double-digit steals, either. He's an OF2 that can be had for the price of an OF3 or OF4.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Gallo only played 70 games but still managed 22 homers, 54 runs scored and 49 RBIs. With a full season, you'd have to expect him to return to 40+ homers, but the big question is whether the batting average is worth the risk in the seventh round of drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Brantley had injury troubles for a while but has now played virtually every day for two straight years. In that time, he has returned to the steal .310 hitter with 20 homers. Although the steals are long gone, that profile still works great with a tenth-round pick.
