Notes 
 Looking just at the on-the-field perspective, SanĂ³ could lead the league in homers and no one would blink an eye. Moving to first base helps him in the short and long term, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Let's not forget how good Murphy was prior to last season. He was a fourth-round pick in 2018. There's still potential here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Sano missed over 50 games but still hit 34 homers and drove in 79 runs. With a full season, 50/110/110 is a real possibility but let's not pretend that he hasn't let fantasy owners down a number of times so there is most definitely some risk as well.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Murphy didn't do all that much either of the last two seasons with just 12 and 13 homers plus 90 missed games combined, but his batting average has still be reliably good. If he can manage to stay healthy, .315 and 20 HRs is not out of the question.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  If your team is low on average, there is no better late round pick than Daniel Murphy. His ADP does not reflect his skill, it reflects his inability to stay healthy.
