Suarez was never all that likely to match last season's .283 batting average, but he's already blown past the 34 home runs he hit in 2018. He's a fairly one-dimensional fantasy asset, but there's no doubt that the power will play.

One of the game's most underappreciated stars, Suarez leveraged a massive hard-hit uptick into a career-high 34 homers last season. He's already matched it in 123 games. He went from a 49 wRC+ in June to 162 in July, putting him on track for another strong campaign even though his .256 BA and .339 OBP are still down considerably from 2018. The 27-year-old third baseman could still hit for a solid clip with 40-45 homers and strong counting numbers.

Suarez has been great over the last few seasons and while he may have slowed down in the first half this year, there is nothing wrong with a guy who bats .250 if he is hitting 35 bombs with 100 RBIs which is the pace Suarez is on going into the break.
