Guerrero hasn't had quite the impact as a rookie that many fantasy managers were expecting, but he's done nothing to weaken his long-term outlook. He still looks like one of the best bets for power and batting average for years to come.

Playing time was supposed to be the only impediment to Guerrero winning fantasy leagues. He didn't meet the hype for months after making his highly anticipated debut on April 26. Since the start of July, however, he's batting .330/.402/.550 in 29 games. The talent remains undeniable, so the 20-year-old could continue to close his rookie campaign in epic fashion a la Ronald Acuna Jr. last year. Let's hope those who spent a premium pick on the rookie third baseman held tight and waited for him to get comfortable in the big leagues. He might finally be ready to recuperate some cost on that massive investment with a huge finish.

Prior to the home run derby, Guerrero's start had been so bad that many were beginning to call him a bust. Let's not forget that this is one of the best prospects in the last decade. Make a move for him before his owner snaps out of it.
