Notes 
 Profar finally got a full chance last year for Texas and posted 20 homers and 10 stolen bases. He takes a hit in projections moving from Texas to Oakland's ballpark, but keep in mind that he just turned 26 years old and very likely hasn't hit his prime yet.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Hernandez may be about as boring as it gets, but you should be glad to welcome 15 homers, 20 steals and 90 runs onto your roster. That is the production he gave fantasy owners last year and you may want to keep in mind that he had a .294 batting average the two previous seasons.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Profar finally delivered on some of his long-forgotten prospect hype in 2018, putting up 20 homers and 10 steals with decent run production numbers. It remains to be seen if he can maintain or improve on those numbers, but he's another reasonable bench stash considering his prospect pedigree and the fact he'll have position eligibility all over the diamond.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Here's a case of launch angle not always helping. Hernandez elevated his launch angle from 3.3 to 9.4, and the philosophy shift produced a career-high 15 homers. He also, however, batted .253 after back-to-back .294 campaigns. The drop could potentially cost the second baseman his spot atop a Philadelphia lineup that has added Jean Segura, Andrew McCutchen, J.T. Realmuto, and Bryce Harper. An extra handful of homers isn't worth the average sacrifice for fantasy investors either, so here's to Hernandez resetting his approach and going back to being an on-base machine who could easily score 100 runs if batting leadoff. Regardless of his plate approach, he has delivered 15-19 steals in each of the past four seasons, making him a steady middle-infield target.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 It took a bit longer than expected, but Profar finally emerged as a strong major leaguer by batting .254/.335/.458 with 20 homers and 10 steals. The Rangers oddly moved him to the A's, a move that presents a major ballpark downgrade after he slugged .511 in Arlington. Aside from a possible average uptick, the skills don't portend another leap forward. Perhaps the biggest incentive to drafting Profar is gleaning eligibility at first base, third, shortstop, and even second (10 games) in some leagues.
