Notes 
 Turner has played more than 130 games just once in his eight-year career, but he's been consistently excellent when he's on the field. If you pro-rate his stats over a full season, you are typically looking at 25 home runs and 90 RBIs. Most importantly, with a batting average of at least .312 in three of the last five seasons, Turner is on the very short list of players who are capable of winning the batting title. His value gets a big boost in leagues with daily lineups and/or multiple DL spots -- he is highly underrated in those formats.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Andujar flew under the radar until his major breakout last season. We've seen players like that face major challenges in their sophomore campaign so beware of the risk associated with picking him, but as we've seen, the upside is tantalizing and may prove well worth a mid-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 An underrated stud when healthy, Turner has touted a higher wRC+ (141) than Paul Goldschmidt, Giancarlo Stanton, Nolan Arenado, and Manny Machado in the past three seasons. He has hit .300/.383/.512 over that time frame, but the games played (150, 130, 103) keeps trending downward. A mere return to 130 would make him a steal beyond the top-100 picks, especially in a shallower league where investors have an easier time filling in the injury gaps on the waiver wire.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Andujar's rookie season went as well as even the most optimistic Yankees fan could have hoped. His .297/83/27/92/2 line was good enough to make him the seventh-most valuable third baseman in standard 5x5 leagues. The 27 home runs feels like a high water mark, at least for this stage of his career, and the batting average in particular is probably due for a bit of a correction, although he can still be above average there thanks to some pretty good contact skills. Fantasy owners should expect last season's production as a best case scenario for Andujar, and be satisfied if he approaches a .280 average and 25 HRs, as most of the projection systems expect.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Batting average is difficult to come by after the first four or five rounds, but then there is Turner, who over the last five seasons, has racked up a .305 batting average which beats out plays like Trout, Yelich and Freeman. There isn't a ton in the way of homers or steals, but he won't hurt you in any category unless he deals with yet another injury. For that reason, he is a bit risky.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Right out of the gate, Andujar provided a rare blend of elite contact (.297 BA) and power (27 HRs) for the Yankees. A 4.1% walk rate is far from ideal, and atrocious defense at third base limits his real-life value. Neither flaw hurt his five-by-five worth last season, but beware paying the Yankee Tax on a youngster who may have peaked early. Statcast's .319 xwOBA hints at some potential sophomore regression.
