Profile: Werth, who will be 38 years old in 2017, put his injury-shortened 2015 behind him on his way to 606 plate appearances in 2016. This is perhaps the most telling detail of Werth’s '16 campaign, as he showed that, not only can he be a source of serviceable production as he ages, but he can also stay on the field (if needed) long enough to be serviceable. The power isn’t what it once was (he probably isn’t topping isolated powers over .200 again), but he still hits the ball hard, as evidenced by his 36% hard-hit rate. He popped 21 home runs last year and should continue to be a cheap source of power. Right now, he appears in line for the Nationals' left field job, with Michael Taylor and Clint Robinson on the bench, and he could manage a full season of playing time again. I wouldn’t bet on it, however, as the Nationals have plenty of reason to try to keep him healthy for their likely playoff run. Plus, after acquiring Adam Eaton, left field is one of the few positions the team could continue to upgrade at. Expect another season similar to '16, as Werth should clear 15 home runs with a .250 AVG, though it may come in 500 plate appearances. (Joe Douglas)

The Quick Opinion: Though he may not put up another 600-PA season in 2017, Werth should once again be a solid source of power available in the later rounds of your fantasy draft.
