2B,CF - WSH
Expert NoteView More Notes
Turner is being drafted as if there's no risk involved and that he will be a HR threat as well as a base thief. While Nationals Park is great for RHH I would plan on getting a good AVG to go with lots of SB and a boatload of R scored, but I wouldn't expect the power outburst to continue. While Trea smacked 13 HR in 73 games last year I would expect 12-15 all season and be glad to get any more. If you're considering using a first round pick on Turner be aware that he's basically Jonathan Villar with a better AVG. There's tons of upside to be sure, but there's also considerable risk tied to a player with only 73 games played at the big league level.

Trea Turner eager to prove himself at shortstop
Trea Turner is returning to his natural position of shortstop for the 2017 season, but "talent evaluators have lingered about Turner’s defense at shortstop, particularly whether he possesses the requisite arm strength," according to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post.
Fortunately for most fantasy owners, defense is not a concern. All that matters is that Turner gains shortstop eligibility to go along with second base and outfield eligibility and that he keeps hitting and swiping bags like the proved he was capable of last season, when he finished second in rookie of the year voting.
