Profile: Headley's full-season numbers for 2016 were slightly below average, just as they were in his first year as a Yankee in 2015. But a closer look reveals a tale of two seasons. Headley couldn't hit water if he fell out of a canoe in the season's first month. The usually-average third baseman hit just .151/.250/.151 through May 5th. He snapped back to productivity shortly thereafter, hitting .269/.344/.426 the rest of the way. The most recent five months of data we have on Headley have been very good, but he also turns 33 in May, which suggests he's more likely to get worse than better. It's probably safe to expect his 2017 numbers to look a lot like last year's... and 2015's and 2014's and 2013's. That's .250ish with 10-15 homers. That's waiver wire fodder in most mixed leagues, but a safe, low-cost, albeit unexciting option in AL-only. (Chris Mitchell)

The Quick Opinion: Headley's a steady, average-ish, defense-first third baseman. That makes him a very useful big leaguer, but a less-useful fantasy player outside of AL-only.
