Profile: To simply look at Dozier's overall line last year and remark about how it was easily his best season misses just how bad he was in the early going. In late May, with Dozier's slash line sitting at a paltry .199/.284/.318, manager Paul Molitor benched the second baseman for the better part of two games to let him clear his mind. The short answer is that it worked brilliantly, as Dozier hit .291/.356/.621 over his final 115 games with 38 home runs and 16 stolen bases. Overall, Dozier hit .268/.340/.546 (making him 32% more productive than league-adjusted average) while setting the team record for extra-base hits and becoming the only non-Killebrew Twin to hit 40 home runs in team history. With two years and $15 million left on Dozier's deal, it made sense for the Twins to shop him this offseason, but with no deal materializing, he'll go back to the keystone for Minnesota. Even though he's unlikely to repeat his 2016 season, he's proven his pull-heavy power plays at Target Field, and somewhere in the vicinity of 30 home runs with some steals from your second baseman — real-life or fantasy — is pretty tremendous. He should be among the top second basemen in any format. (@Brandon_Warne)

The Quick Opinion: Dozier does a bit of everything, which can make him a fun player regardless of your league. His only bugaboo is batting average, but if he can come anywhere close to the .268 mark he posted in 2016, he won't kill you. Confidently draft him as one of the top second basemen.
