Profile: Two data points that summarize Giancarlo Stanton's fantasy career: in his seven MLB seasons, he has averaged 41 homers per 162 games -- but in only two of those seasons has he played more than 123 games. Last year, it was a groin strain which took him out in August, though he came back for sporadic appearances near the end of the season. Even before he got hurt, though, Stanton was showing some signs of concern. Stanton continued his apparent trend of being even more aggressive at the plate, with his strikeout and walk rates remaining virtually constant, at 29.8% and 10.6%, respectively, compared to 2015. His swinging strike rate stood steady at an abnormally high 15.2%, and his overall swing rate actually increased from 45.2% to 46.2%. But Stanton's freeswinging ways didn't lead to the same boost in power that they did in 2015; Stanton's HR/FB rate fell sharply from 32.1% to 22.7%, and his hard-hit rate suffered a similar drop from 49.7% to 42.9%. Stanton's batted ball profile also took a dive -- literally -- as a good chunk of his line drives turned into grounders. Stanton's at his peak, age-wise, and he has more raw power than anyone in the game, but this still all adds up to an outfielder who might have more of a 35-.250 season in 2017 than a 45-.290 season. And that, of course, is if he stays healthy. Stanton could easily be a top-5 fantasy player if things break right, but his potential downside is too great to make him more than a mid-tier OF1 this spring. (Brice Russ)

The Quick Opinion: Stanton got hurt -- again -- in 2016. More distressingly, he maintained his even-higher strikeout rates from 2015 while giving back the gains he made in game power. Few players in baseball have more potential than Giancarlo, but his downside is significant enough to make him a risky pick as more than a borderline second/third round player.
