So much for Yelich not sustaining his power tear. After wrapping up the NL MVP with 21 homers in August and September, the outfielder already gone deep 41 times in 111 games. He's done so while hitting a preposterous .334/.426/.697 with 24 steals. Heavy ground-ball hitters aren't supposed to produce such prolific power, but Yelich is looking more like the exception. Expected to regress, he has instead improved. Treat him as a top-three stud who is making a reasonable case to usurp Mike Trout as the rightful No. 1.

In real life, Yelich doesn't do enough overall to have surpassed Trout as the top player in the game but with a 50 homer, 40 steal pace to go with a .330 batting average, you can bet your bottom dollar that he has been the #1 fantasy asset this season and will continue to be so.

Yelich looks every bit as good as he did last season, when he finished tied with J.D. Martinez as the most valuable player overall in standard 5x5 roto/categories leagues. It would be unwise to bet against him finishing as fantasy's top player once again.
