2018 Fantasy Outlook
After missing over half the minor-league season with hip and elbow injuries, Duggar reestablished his value in the Arizona Fall League. He hit .263/.367/.421 with three home runs, nine steals (on 10 attempts) and a 21:12 K:BB in 20 games. The 24-year-old also really impressed with the glove, and the Giants now view him as their center fielder of the future. Despite his success rate on the bases in the AFL, he is a borderline plus runner, so steal totals in the 20-to-30 range may be a bit unrealistic, although he could flirt with 20 in his first few seasons. His on-base skills are legitimate, as he has never posted a walk rate below 10 percent. This should allow him to eventually profile in the leadoff spot for the Giants, which would be a boon for fantasy owners, as he needs to score runs to make up for the fact that he likely won't be driving many in. He has a chance to open the year in a center field platoon with Austin Jackson, starting against right-handed pitchers. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Duggar displayed his major-league ready approach at the plate in 2016, batting .321 while getting on base nearly 40 percent of the time with Double-A Richmond. While his contact is ready for the majors, his power is nearly non-existent. He hit just one home run in 276 plate appearances in 2016. If the power doesn't develop over time, then Duggar will be nothing more than an empty batting average for fantasy purposes as he doesn't project to be a big base stealer either. The 23-year-old will likely be promoted to Triple-A Sacramento to start the 2017 campaign.
