Notes 
 Death. Taxes. Edwin EncarnaciĆ³n hitting bombs. Great landing spot in Chi-town for him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Big Red is consistent year in and year out. He's elevated in points leagues, but he's a fine fallback option if you wait on the position.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Encarnacion is most certainly getting up there in age but his power persists as he knocked 30+ homers again for the eighth straight season. As we all know, the batting average won't be great but we can put up with that for 100+ RBIs and 80+ runs to go with the power.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Turner has quietly been one of the better pure hitters in baseball over the last few seasons. The problem is that he consistently misses 30 to 50 games. If we finally get a full season, that .310 batting average with 30+ homers and 90+ runs would look great in the 12th round.
