Profile: Pollock was one stolen base shy of a 20 HR/40 SB season back in 2015 along with 111 runs, 76 RBIs, and a .315 AVG in 673 plate appearances, a truly filthy fantasy season. It was just the 11th season to reach or exceed 20 HR, 35 SB, 100 R, and .300 AVG since 2000, the first since Mike Trout’s 2012. The specialness of that season is how you can play just 12 games the following season due to injuries and still essentially retain your average draft position. OK, he has fallen some, but after losing virtually all of 2016 to a busted elbow (sustained in spring training), he is still going at pick 36 on average with a peak in the top-20. The thing is that the elbow is hardly his first time dealing with injury. In 2014, a breakout was cut short due to a fractured hand that ate up three months and even his return from the elbow was curbed in September of 2016 due to a groin injury. The potential is high, but there isn’t enough of his risk baked into the current price for a player who has just two major league seasons, only one of which was good. TL;DR Pollock is overrated. (Paul Sporer)

The Quick Opinion: Pollock has one of the best fantasy seasons in the 2000s and the impression of that season has stuck with the market, as he is still a firm third rounder even after missing virtually all of 2016. Gobs of talent, but his cost doesn’t accurately account for the risk, especially if the groin – which has popped back up in spring – curbs some of his running. Be careful.
