Springer missed about a month with a strained hamstring, but quickly settled back in as the leadoff hitter in one of the league's best lineups.

It was a rough year for Springer Dingers, as the Astros outfielder deposited just 22 homers with a pedestrian .265/.346/.434 slash line in 2018. Thumb and quad injuries sapped his power late in the season and limited him to 140 games for the second straight year, and yet he managed over 100 runs for the third consecutive campaign. This year, he needed just 84 games to deposit 25 long balls with a .296/.383/.588 slash line. Back from a hamstring injury that sent him to the IL, a healthy Springer looks poised to reclaim top-shelf value while still pushing triple-digit RBIs and runs.

With the injuries to both Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, Springer's counting stats haven't quite been what fantasy owners expected but he is still among the clear-cut second-tier of fantasy outfielders and may finish with 35 homers, 10 steals and a .300 batting average.
