2019 Fantasy Outlook
If there were any doubts about Betts' status as one of the best hitters in the game after his "down" 2017 season, he put them to rest with his AL MVP campaign. He may not be Mike Trout, but Betts is arguably now the 1B to Trout's 1A heading into 2019. Betts was second to Trout in wRC+ with a 185 mark, and he ranked fourth among qualified hitters in ISO, which is hard to fathom for a player who is 5-foot-9, 180 pounds. Thanks in part to a swing tweak, Betts added a whopping 82 points to his batting average, besting every other qualifier in average by 16 points, and also led the majors in slugging percentage. And even with all that, his most valuable contributions to fantasy owners came on the basepaths, with Betts going 30-for-36 in stolen-base attempts. In an era where steals are way down, his ability to chip in 25-plus bags annually while doing so much else makes him an incredibly rare commodity. Enjoy the ride. Read Past Outlooks
