Profile: Following Davis’ move from Milwaukee to Oakland, many were concerned that he would not fare well going from a hitter-friendly park to the cavernous Coliseum. That did not bear out, however, as the slugger’s first season with the Athletics was a very successful one. Davis set a career high with 150 games played and 610 plate appearances in 2016, and his 42 home runs and 102 RBIs shattered his previous bests of 27 and 69, respectively. Additionally, his 40% flyball percentage and 27% home run per flyball rate were not way out of line with his career norms. Overall, he hit a solid .247/.307/.524 on the year, fueled by an .881 OPS against lefties and an .884 mark when away from Oakland. Davis’ plate discipline is nothing special, as he holds a career 25% strikeout rate to go with a 7% walk rate, and his batting average has remained consistently, well, average as a result (.244, .247, .247 marks in past three seasons). Davis may not offer much speed, defense, or great on-base ability, but his dependable power from the middle of the order makes him a bona fide fantasy bat. Even if the 29-year-old doesn’t quite surpass the 40-homer mark again, he can be relied on heading into the ‘17 campaign. (Dylan Higgins)

The Quick Opinion: Davis is known for his prodigious pop, but he took things to another level in Oakland last year with 42 homers and 102 RBIs. Considering not even the Coliseum can keep him in check, the 29-year-old slugger can be trusted again this year for fantasy power numbers that hide his flaws as a real-life player.
