With power at such a high supply, five-by-five managers won't derive much value out of a .229 hitter like Schwarber. There's hope, however, in an average exit velocity up 2.5 points leading to a .254 xBA. If his quiet contact gains can even lead to a .245 average, gamers can get some utility out of a 35-HR slugger who will score plenty of runs atop the Cubs' lineup. He's still more valuable in OBP leagues.

No one is surprised by Schwarber's performance thus far as he is yet again, piling up runs and RBIs with a pace of 35 homers. All of that is great, of course, but the batting average is once again south of .240 so he doesn't offer much more value than a Randal Grichuk.
