Profile: Bourn re-signed with Baltimore, after spending most of 2016 in Arizona, before embarking upon a brief stint with the Orioles. Bourn's fantasy value was always based on stealing bases, but at 34 years old, he doesn't offer much in that department anymore, with just 42 total steals in his last three seasons. Even if he makes the O's roster as a bench piece, it's highly unlikely that the former speedster regains his wheels in his mid-30s. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: It's been five years since Bourn was a consistent fantasy contributor. Don't expect that to change in 2017.
