Profile: Flowers quietly put together a solid 2016, providing value in NL-only and two-catcher leagues. He missed a chunk of the season after breaking his hand in July, but produced when he was on the field. He hit a career-best .270, while swatting eight homers in 83 games. His walk rate — which hovered in the 5.5% range for the previous three years — jumped to 8.9%. Flowers still strikes out a ton, but his 28.4% strikeout rate in the last two years is a marked improvement from the astronomical 34-36% K-rate he used to post. The only other catchers on the Braves 40-man roster are Kurt Suzuki and Anthony Recker, so Flowers should see ample playing time. There are far sexier options out there, but Flowers has some pop. He won't hit .270 again, but .245 is a reasonable expectation. Throw in a sprinkling of runs and RBI, and there's value here for those of you in deeper formats. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: Flowers is a decent low-upside option in NL-only and two-catcher leagues. (Stay far, far away from him if your league counts strikeouts for hitters, obviously.)
