Profile: For the first time in Goldschmidt’s career, he posted an isolated power below .200, but kept his fantasy value high with a career-best in stolen bases with 32. Since 2012 and excluding 2014 when he got hurt, Goldschmidt has stolen at least 15 bags. Again, excluding 2014, his SB numbers have increased since 2013. Even though he lost some value with his drop in home runs, he is still a fantasy monster posting high stats in the other four major categories. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a batting average or on-base percentage league: he is a top tier player. His home run to fly ball percentage was the second-worst of his career, which may explain some of the drop in his home run output. A 19% mark is only .7% less than his career rate, yet this was 3% lower than his 2015 mark (22%) when he hit 33 home runs. Add in the fact that his fly ball rate in general was much less than any of his other seasons and his infield fly rate was higher than any other season, he should be back on track for at least 30 home runs if he is able to normalize those numbers. (Paul Kastava)

The Quick Opinion: Goldschmidt saw his home run output drop, but was able to excel in all other categories, particularly in stolen bases where he put up a career-best. His fly ball rate went down and his infield fly rate went up, which veered far from his norm. Expect his power to normalize back to his past numbers, keeping him in the upper echelon of fantasy.
