Notes 
 Haniger built on his impressive 2017 debut with the Mariners in 2018, producing a .285/90/26/93/8 roto line that ranked 10th among outfielders. The power and speed numbers look completely sustainable for Haniger, but his batting average could be due for a bit of regression and it may be challenging to produce 90+ runs and RBIs again in a rebuilding Mariners lineup. Haniger is unlikely to be a bust, but last season's numbers are probably closer to his ceiling than his floor.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Turner has played more than 130 games just once in his eight-year career, but he's been consistently excellent when he's on the field. If you pro-rate his stats over a full season, you are typically looking at 25 home runs and 90 RBIs. Most importantly, with a batting average of at least .312 in three of the last five seasons, Turner is on the very short list of players who are capable of winning the batting title. His value gets a big boost in leagues with daily lineups and/or multiple DL spots -- he is highly underrated in those formats.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Not much changed for Haniger from 2017 to 2018 besides his walk rate (10.2%) and playing time. Over a full season, the perennial sleeper translated his skills to 26 homers and eight steals with 90 runs and 93 RBI. Although his surface stats were similar, he earned last year's success with an xwOBA boost from .329 to .366. A ransacked Mariners lineup will cost him some scoring production, but the outfielder should otherwise sustain his breakout if healthy.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
An underrated stud when healthy, Turner has touted a higher wRC+ (141) than Paul Goldschmidt, Giancarlo Stanton, Nolan Arenado, and Manny Machado in the past three seasons. He has hit .300/.383/.512 over that time frame, but the games played (150, 130, 103) keeps trending downward. A mere return to 130 would make him a steal beyond the top-100 picks, especially in a shallower league where investors have an easier time filling in the injury gaps on the waiver wire.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Although Haniger hasn't done it for as long as someone like Nelson Cruz or Justin Upton, he was better than both last year thanks to a .285 batting average on top of his 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and power. Projection models are fond of him once again this year, but there is a bit more risk than the aforementioned annual powerhouses.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Batting average is difficult to come by after the first four or five rounds, but then there is Turner, who over the last five seasons, has racked up a .305 batting average which beats out plays like Trout, Yelich and Freeman. There isn't a ton in the way of homers or steals, but he won't hurt you in any category unless he deals with yet another injury. For that reason, he is a bit risky.
