Evan Gattis tends to be the player who most often lands in the proper draft range for my valuation of him, and part of that has to do with his having as good a chance as anyone at leading the position (fantasy-qualified, not on-field) in plate appearances thanks to his serving as the Houston Astros’ primary designated hitter. — Tristan H. Cockcroft
Castillo hit 20 HR last season in Baltimore and, while there are few guarantees in fantasy baseball, I suspect he won’t suffer any power loss in moving from Camden Yards to Guaranteed Rate Field. I’ll happily wait until my last few picks to grab the Chicago White Sox backstop and be just as well off as those who sprung for Perez many, many rounds earlier. — AJ Mass
The top teams in the seller group, the Blue Jays being one, could have just as easily been listed in the forthcoming buyers piece, though Toronto finished just below my arbitrary 20 percent threshold for playoff probability. I bring that up because the prospect part of this becomes the focal point if a team is buying. However, these teams clustered around the cutoff, such as Toronto, would be unlikely to deal a top prospect for a fringe playoff push. Thus, Pearson is listed here and not Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette or Anthony Alford.
If indeed Toronto sells and extension talks with Donaldson have not progressed, he could become the biggest impact acquisition a contender makes during the season.
The Titans cut DeMarco Murray and recouped $6.5 million in cap savings. Murray, 30, slowed down last season, and his limited receiving production didn’t help the new offense.
Derrick Henry will get his crack as the early-down and drive-finishing workhorse, but he’ll need a complement for the passing game. There’s no better free-agent target for such a Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys role than the Vikings’ Jerick McKinnon.
Henry is a younger, better version of Latavius Murray, the player with whom Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys McKinnon needed to work while the duo replaced injured Dalvin Cook last season. McKinnon turns 26 in May, while Henry turns 24 in July. Signing McKinnon to a three-year deal would have the Titans’ backfield on lock to be productive on every down behind a mighty offensive line.
