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 .293/.374/.509, 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 never hit 30 homers in a full season, but there are few safer bets to bat around .300.

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.
