Profile: At age 31, Rodriguez enjoyed a breakout half season, notching career bests all over the place. His walk rate nearly quadrupled over 2015, his ISO, HR/FB, Hard%, and wOBA, all reached new career highs. Also importantly, his pop-up rate slid down to a new career low, while his line drive rate also hit a new high. That combination no doubt led to his best BABIP yet. His average home run and line drive exit velocity jumped a robust four and a half miles per hour, while he nearly doubled his fly ball pull rate. Talk about the perfect recipe for a power surge! Now in Atlanta, he finds himself in a better situation for playing time, but still without the guarantee of a full-time job. How much of his gains he is able to hold onto in 2017 is anyone's guess, but he has put himself back on the radar in deep mixed and NL-Only leagues. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Rodriguez became a new man in 2016, enjoying career bests in multiple categories leading to by far his best offensive performance yet. The power he had shown way back in the minors never translated, but could we finally be witnessing its blossoming? In an NL-Only league, it shouldn't cost too much to find out.
