Notes 
 Maybe someone can try to hit the ball in the air too much. That's what happened with Hoskins last year. This is really his last chance to become a breakout star that we all had hoped. Added value in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Death. Taxes. Edwin EncarnaciĆ³n hitting bombs. Great landing spot in Chi-town for him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hoskins' BA luck caught up to him and that BA dipped to .226. His power remained about the same rather than jumping to a new level like many seemed to be anticipating. He does still have upside for more but the floor, as we've seen, is a non-top 25 first basemen.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Encarnacion is most certainly getting up there in age but his power persists as he knocked 30+ homers again for the eighth straight season. As we all know, the batting average won't be great but we can put up with that for 100+ RBIs and 80+ runs to go with the power.
