Notes 
 Mike Moustakas is the poster child for betting on yourself, as he's done so in back-to-back seasons. Now he's in Cincinnati, which we know is a great hitter's venue, so he won't experience any drop-off from leaving Milwaukee. What's more, Moustakas is playing second base, which makes him even more valuable than if he only had third base eligibility like in years past. The power is real, and so is this value for Moose in drafts.
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
 Moustakas is a virtual lock to hit 30+ homers with 80+ RBIs but he doesn't steal any bags and with the power will likely come a sub-optimal batting average. You could do worse in the 9th round, however, because at the very least, he is a reliable three-category contributor.
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.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Consistent 30 home run seasons eligible at 2B and 3B in an upgraded CIncy lineup. The Moose is loose and I am owning many many shares.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 
 Perennially underrated. In a great hitters park he should reach 30+ homers again.
