Notes 
 Looking for 40 homers? Draft Davis and write it in ink. He has knocked 133 over the last three seasons with 335 RBIs in that time. The floor is as high as you'll find in the first five rounds but the batting average is almost certainly going to be around .250 again
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Puig was a steady-if-unspectacular performer over his last two seasons in Los Angeles, settling in as a player who could hit around .265 while approaching 30 HRs and 15 SBs. He'll get a nice ballpark upgrade in his new home of Cincinnati, Ohio, and there is some belief that he will also benefit from being away from the distractions of LA, but it is hard to justify drastically raising our expectations for Puig until we see some evidence of it on the field. Don't overrate him, but he's certainly worth considering at his current ADP of 91.3.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Consistency may be the most under-appreciated asset in fantasy baseball. Davis isn't young and flashy, and he won't help you in terms of speed or batting average, but he has delivered 40+ home runs and 100+ RBIs in three straight seasons, establishing himself as an incredibly reliable top-40 hitter in standard roto/categories leagues. In fact, he was so good last year that he finished as the 11th-best hitter. That will likely prove to be his high water mark, but there is little risk associated with using a fourth round pick on Davis.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Puig's career has been a bit of a disappointment, but even so, his last two seasons have been excellent. In that time, he has 30 homers and 18 SB per 162 games. If he is able to stay healthy, we could be looking at a further breakout to 35 and 20 thanks to a major ballpark upgrade in Cincy this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Davis' consistently extends his uncanny streak of batting .247 in four straight seasons. He's also the only player to deposit at least 40 homers in each of the last three seasons. MLB's league-wide batting average dipped to .248 last season, so Oakland's slugger won't torpedo that category. And while power is now easier to find later in drafts, elite power remains a major asset. Having only played 11 games in the outfield, he won't have a position in some leagues. That utility-only label could turn him into a value, as drafters are needlessly reticent of taking such players.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Puig has become every drafter's friend since getting shipped from the Dodgers to Reds. Although never matching the immediate high of his story-book debut, the outfielder has registered a .349 wOBA and 15 stolen bases in each of the last two seasons. Escaping the NL West juggernaut's jammed roster solidifies ample playing time, and he changes venues to one of baseball's best hitter's parks. Most projection systems forecast around 25-30 home runs with 12-16 steals while batting in the .270 vicinity. Those numbers would satisfy drafters who dip into the top 100 to snag an increasingly popular target.
