Edwin Encarnacion
35-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Cleveland Indians
2018 Fantasy Outlook
After a slow start with his new club, Encarnacion did what he always does: surge to surpass 30 homers and 100 RBI. He's now hit 34 or more home runs in six consecutive seasons and he's driven in 100-plus in five of his last six, finishing at 98 in that other year. He exceeded 100 walks in 2017 for the first time in his career, ranking fifth among qualified hitters in walk percentage. Further, Encarnacion kept his strikeout rate under 20 percent, so seemingly every skill is holding firm as he enters his age-35 season. Thankfully, he got 23 games at first base last season, so he maintains 1B eligibility with the luxury of playing most of his games at DH, and he has one of baseball's better lineups around him. As far as consistency from a power standpoint goes, Encarnacion has virtually no peers in today's game, and consistency is usually undervalued at the draft table. Act accordingly. Read Past Outlooks
