Notes 
 You won't get much help from Semien in terms of batting average, but he is a good bet for 15 homers and 15 steals, plus last season he provided fantasy owners with 89 runs scored. Expect more of the same from this durable and reliable depth piece.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Entrenched in a heated battle for Colorado's second-base gig, Hampson has teased immense fantasy upside with three homers and five steals in his first 13 spring games. The career .315/.389/.457 minor league hitter has swiped 125 bases in three professional seasons, so he could be a major difference-maker if given the opportunity to start regularly while calling Coors Field home. Drafters still must be careful, as Ryan McMahon and Pat Valakia are also making compelling cases for playing time this spring. Hampson, however, would help fantasy investors the most, and thus warrants a late-round gamble.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Semien is the very definition of a boring draft pick, but he's finished as a top-12 shortstop in roto/categories leagues in two of the last three seasons. Semien will provide decent power and chip in some steals as well.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
The Rockies' likely starter at second base on Opening Day, Hampson has managed at least 35 SBs with a .300 batting average in each of his three minor league seasons to date. He likely won't be good for more than around 10 HRs over a full season, but that hardly matters if he is piling up hits and stolen bases while playing half his games in Coors Field. He's a very enticing sleeper, especially in roto/categories leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Semien always seems to stick around long enough for drafters who want double-digit homers and steals from a cheap middle infielder. He has never reached a 100 wRC+ or batted above .261, so there's limited upside now that 2016's 27 homers stands out as a career outlier. There's also a chance he moves down the batting order, which guarantees he'll come nowhere close to 2018's 703 plate appearance and 89 runs. Here's the good news: You don't need to pay for last year's results. Even if he plates 20 fewer runs, Semien will get the job done with another .250, 15/15-type campaign.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
The signing of Daniel Murphy should cause Hampson's ECR to drop another 50 spots, as that transaction shifts Ryan McMahon over to second base. Hampson could force the Rockies hands with a strong Spring, but more than likely, he won't get the call until someone hits the DL. At that point, McMahon could slide over to first, third or the outfield. If it is Story that goes down, Hampson would fill the gap. He could eventually be a better version of D.J. LeMahieu offensively, posting a batting average near .300 with more power and speed. Right away, he will merely hold his own in the batting average department while contributing nearly 30 steals per 162 games.
