It took a bit longer than expected, but Profar finally emerged as a strong major leaguer by batting .254/.335/.458 with 20 homers and 10 steals in 2018. Perhaps the Rangers knew what they were doing when moving him to the A's. He's batting .205/.268/.382. He has at least maintained some power and speed with 15 homers and seven steals. Batting .174 over the last 30 days, he can only be rostered in the deepest of leagues despite his multi-position eligibility.

Profar has been downright awful this season for fantasy owners, batting just .212. With that said, he is still on track for 18 homers and double-digit steals so if he can turn the batting average around, we may have a fantasy impact player again.

It's been a rough year for Profar. He is due for some positive batting average regression thanks to his contact-heavy approach, but he'll probably also need to start hitting the ball with more authority to matter much in mixed leagues.
