 Muncy was 2nd in HR-rate among all MLB hitters last season. Granted, he slowed down toward the end of the year and his batting average wasn't ideal, but that type of power certainly warrants a top 100 pick. This is especially the case when he qualifies at second base and third base too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
You may be inclined to believe Cabrera is done since he has had two subpar seasons in a row, but he is apparently in the best shape of his life. Add in the fact that he will be spending most of his time as the Tigers DH and we might just have the biggest bounceback player on our hands.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Muncy was a late bloomer, bouncing around the Athletics' and Dodgers' farm systems for six years before breaking out in a big way at 27 years old. In his first extended opportunity in the Big Leagues, Muncy smacked 35 home runs in just 395 at-bats. That was due in part to a 29.4 percent HR/FB ratio that was one of the highest in baseball, but Muncy was also among the league leaders in hard contact rate. Even if his HR/FB rate drops off, he can make up for it with more games played, making him a decent bet to again top 30 home runs. He won't be an asset in batting average or stolen bases, but he is another example of a big-time power source you can acquire relatively cheaply.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Cabrera's 2018 season was cut short after just 38 games due to a torn biceps tendon, but in the limited sample size he looked more like the perennial .300 hitter he's been for most of his career than the guy who hit just .249 in 2017. It is hard to expect much more than around 20 HRs from Cabrera at this point -- his 38 HRs in 2016 is the major outlier of the last five seasons -- but even that kind of power output can be useful when it's accompanied by a strong batting average. He's nowhere near the player he once was, but his days as a mixed league asset aren't over quite yet.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Muncy had batted .195 with five homers in 245 big league plate appearances prior to 2018, so he naturally towered 35 homers with a .407 wOBA. He endured some troubling strikeout woes late in the season and playoffs, but there are plenty of reasons not to anticipate the bottom falling out entirely. Along with a gorgeous 16.4% walk rate, the late bloomer notched a heavy dosage of fly balls (44.9%, only 5.9% popups) and hard hits (47.4%). Per Statcast, only Joey Gallo served up a higher rate of barrels per batted balls than Muncy's 16.9. He's a solid power pick-and tremendous OBP target-if the rest of the room sees an obvious regression candidate.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
On the bright side, Cabrera recorded a .360 wOBA after notching a career-low .313 in 2017. The only problem: He played just 38 games due to a ruptured left biceps tendon. Don't bank on a fully healthy season from the first baseman, who turns 36 in April and has averaged 111 games over the last four seasons. Yet last year proved he's still a prolific hitter when healthy, even if no longer a massive home-run threat. If he falls beyond pick 150, it's worth rolling the dice on one of this generation's best sluggers churning out one more vintage season before his Hall of Fame career bites the dust.
