Notes 
 If we are looking at real baseball, Matt Chapman is one of the 10 best players in the league. If we are looking at fantasy with OBP, Chapman gets a boost in value. Neither of those are the case here, as Chapman's average keeps him out of the elite options at third base. What he'll give you is solid production, and if he takes the next step in batting average, he's top 5 at the position. As of now, though, at a deep position, he's a top 12 guy who gives you what a lot of players give you."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There are a lot of red flags around how legitimate Escobar's production was the past couple of years. In a dynasty, I'm selling, and in a redraft, I'm looking elsewhere for a starter.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 If fantasy were real life, Chapman might be the second best third basemen in the league but fantasy accounts for average instead of OBP and his 1 steal won't help much. Rather, he is big power guy with runs, homers and not much else to help your fantasy team.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Escobar had a heck of a breakout season, driving in 118 RBIs thanks to 35 homers. The batting average will never be great but he certainly won't hurt you in that category. What's more, is that he'll qualify for 2B and 3B so that you can slide him around during the week.
