Notes 
 Peraza broke out last season with 13 homers, 23 steals and a .288 batting average. Whether or not the power stays is a question, but he seems to be a safe source for runs, steals and batting average in the middle of drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Anderson was remarkable in the first half but really slowed down to close the season. Even still, he managed 20 homers and 26 steals. While he may be hard pressed to repeat that this year, 15 and 15 would make him a useful mid-round pick so long as his batting average doesn't plummet further.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Peraza was almost as good as Jean Segura last season and there isn't much reason to doubt he can do it again in 2019. He isn't as likely as Segura to post a .300 batting average, but .280-.290 is entirely within reach, and their stolen base totals should be very similar. Peraza is also capable of matching Segura's low double-digit home run output after significantly increasing both his hard contact rate and fly ball rate last season, and he should see an uptick in run production while hitting in an improved Reds' lineup.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Anderson was the only shortstop other than Lindor, Baez, and Story to post a 20-20 season last year (Turner fell one home run short). Make no mistake, with his poor plate discipline, Anderson is a roto/categories league specialist, but his counting stats can certainly play in that format. Plus, his .240 batting average is due for a bit of positive regression following an unusually low .289 BABIP.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Peraza's steady skills came with a massive spike in contact (.288 BA) and power (14 HRs, 31 2Bs), turning a bit player into a significant five-by-five contributor. A rise in fly balls, hard hits, and launch angle accompanied the power boost, so he could reasonably reach double-digit homers again. His batting average has fluctuated sharply by year, so he's not quite a bankable star just yet. He is, however, a steady option with few 20-base stealers capable of also hitting .280 with 10 homers.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Anderson's .240 average? Meh. His .281 OBP? Gross. Twenty homers and 24 steals from a 25-year-old shortstop? Well, that's pretty good. A horrible real-life hitter, he can fill two of fantasy's most essential categories. After logging 606 plate appearances in each of the past two seasons, he appears in no danger of losing playing time for his ineffective bat. Be sure to have some high-average hitters in place before taking Anderson, and don't touch him in a points league.
