Notes 
 Swanson is another sleeper, whose peripherals tell the story compared to his surface stats.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If nothing else, Votto will play regularly and is still an asset in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Swanson's statcast metrics were shockingly good so even though he broke out to a clip of 17 homers and 10 steals in just 127 games, there could be more under the surface that fantasy owners end up with this year from the Braves' shortstop.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It has now been two seasons since Votto has displayed any power, and his batting average has dropped quite a bit each of the last two years. He might not be helpful in fantasy whatsoever, but there is, of course, a chance that he bounces back to become a top 12 first basemen once again.
