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
Voit was extraordinary for the Yankees once they acquired him from St. Louis last year. In fact, he may have been one of the best hitters in baseball. Don't expect that for all of 2019, but don't be shocked if he puts up a Jesus Aguilar type of season either.
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
After bouncing around the Cardinals' minor league system for seven years, Voit finally experienced some Major League success after moving to the Yankees. He hit a blistering .322 with 15 home runs over 47 games in Pinstripes, begging the question of whether that was a true breakout or a mirage. The answer likely lies somewhere in between. Voit's 40.5 percent HR/FB rate is the definition of unsustainable, but his batted ball data suggest he does have some legitimate pop in his bat. He's unlikely to hit anywhere close to .322 again, but if he can hold down a starting job in New York -- which is no certainty -- it is not hard envision him hitting 25-30 home runs with good run production over the course of a full season.
Andrew Seifter - 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.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Voit dominated (.322/.398/.671, 15 HRs) in 47 games with the Yankees. His .447 wOBA matched Mike Trout, and his .437 wxOBA topped every hitter with at least 150 plate appearances. He also, however, posted a 40.5 HR/FB% with an abysmal 68.9% contact rate, stats which respectively scream HR and AVG regression. Given the microscopic sample size attached to 2018's breakout, there's still a chance he falls into the short end of a platoon with Greg Bird. Yet the scorching contact suggests he could ward off some red flags and leverage Yankee Stadium into a 30-homer campaign. Weigh the risks and rewards before determining whether to swing for the fences.
