Profile: After his home run total fell into the single digits over the previous two seasons, Kipnis powered up, helping contribute to the leaguewide spike. While its doubtful he could hold onto those gains, part of the jump was due to a career high fly ball rate. That's simply a change in approach, as he had consistently posted FB% marks in the low 30% range, before boosting that to his 2016 mark of 37.4%. Whether he sustains those FB% gains or not will determine whether his home run total drops back into the low teens or continues to flirt with the 20 level. His BABIP has also bounced around, but with a high line drive rate, low pop-up rate, power, and speed, he looks like a legit high BABIP guy, with his two sub-.300 marks smelling fluky. Although he'll turn 30 at the beginning of the season, he should remain an all-around fantasy contributor. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Kipnis turned career high fly ball and HR/FB rates into his first 20-homer season, but requiring two career bests means it likely won't last. Still, even if his homer total drops back into the teens, he does enough everywhere else to be a strong fantasy contributor.
