Turner is still chugging along as an underrated fantasy baseball asset. He may reach 90 runs, 20 HRs and a .300 batting average this season despit being drafted low each and every season.

Turner's numbers are slightly down this year, but not enough to be a cause for concern. He stands a good chance of producing at a .300-20 pace over the season's second half.

An underrated stud when healthy, Turner touted a higher wRC+ (141) than Paul Goldschmidt, Giancarlo Stanton, Nolan Arenado, and Manny Machado from 2016-18. He has recovered from an early power drought to bat .296/.380/.444, and he'll compile plenty of runs and RBIs in a prolific Dodgers lineup. He has also stayed healthy, which has proven the main detriment to his fantasy value. Turner may not hit for more than 20-25 homers in a full season, but there are few safer bets to bat around .300.
