Notes 
 Gennett will miss two to three months to start 2019 after spraining his groin at the end of spring training. Those who drafted the second baseman who stash him beyond the shallowest of mixed leagues, as he was one of eight players to bat at least .300 with 50 homers through the past two seasons. Yet the Statcast data remains skeptical. No hitter with a least 350 plate appearances had a wider gap between wOBA (.362) and xwOBA (.311) in 2018.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Now that Cabrera is with the Rangers and expected to play every day, we can feel comfortable grabbing him late in drafts as a reliable source of power to go with a decent batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Over the last two years, Gennett has compiled 50 homers, 190 RBIs and a .300 batting average. He may not be the most physically imposing ballplayer, but that is too large of a sample size to be a fluke. Don't hesitate to take advantage of the industry's lack of excitement over him.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 
 Gennett experienced a major breakout in his first season with the Reds in 2017, and his 2018 encore was just about as good. Last season's .310 batting average was fueled by a .358 BABIP that is due for a bit of a correction, but he should still be able to hit at least .280 or so. Meanwhile, his home run output should hold steady in the mid-20s while his already-strong run and RBI production could see a slight boost from an improved supporting cast.
