2019 Fantasy Outlook
We have now had three consecutive seasons of Gordon being a below-average offensive producer, but at least 2018 was a step back toward some form of mediocrity at the plate. Gordon had his first double-double season since 2014, and hit for his highest average of the past three seasons. The trouble is the power is still AWOL, and lefties are still a mystery for him. Gordon's defense is solid enough to leave him in the lineup on an everyday basis, so his overall numbers will suffer due to overexposure. In an ideal world, Gordon would play in a platoon with a good right-handed partner, but Kansas City has not shown much of an interest in going that route. He has one more guaranteed year on his deal, and will try his best to earn the team option for 2020. Kansas City has to cater to a fan favorite, but you do not have to. Gordon should be a fallback option after your first dozen or so options fall through, rather than a target. Read Past Outlooks
