Notes 
 Josh Reddick can't stand in the way forever. Let's see how Dusty Baker handles Tucker this year. He has five-category upside if he can ever play every day.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Upton is a nice gamble this year as a OF 4 or OF 5 in hopes that he returns to form after a down year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Tucker hasn't lived up to the hype in his first 130 big league at-bats but don't sour on him quite yet. This is a legitimate five-category asset who could go 40/25 HR/SB with a .280 batting average within the next few years. It is tough to tell how quickly it will come but he has to get playing time first.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It seems strange to call a veteran like Upton a sleeper, but that's exactly what his ADP shows he is. Throw out last year where he battled a toe injury early and was limited to just 63 mediocre games. Prior to last year, he had hit at least 30 home runs and stolen eight bases in three straight seasons. With Anthony Rendon in tow, there should be even more RBI opportunities for Upton. Still just 32 years old, there's plenty left in the tank.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Upton missed 100 games last year but has otherwise been extremely durable his entire career, hitting 30+ homers with 80+ runs and 80+ RBIs in three consecutive seasons. Thre is a chance he struggles again, but more than likely, he'll return value in the 17th round of drafts.
