Notes 
 Let's not forget how good Murphy was prior to last season. He was a fourth-round pick in 2018. There's still potential here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If nothing else, Votto will play regularly and is still an asset in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 If your team is low on average, there is no better late round pick than Daniel Murphy. His ADP does not reflect his skill, it reflects his inability to stay healthy.
