Profile: Players tend to decline in their 30s, and Gonzalez was no exception. He posted a still-above-average wRC+ of 112, but it was the lowest full-season mark of his career. He also posted career-lows in home runs, doubles, runs scored, isolated power and his lowest RBI total since 2006. Through June 26, he had a poor .262/.336/.371 triple slash with six home runs, 11 doubles and a 92 wRC+. Gonzalez had been hitting balls on the ground at a 51.7 percent clip -- easily the highest rate of his career to date. After June 26, he fared much better and rediscovered his lost power: .306/.361/.492, 12 home runs, 20 doubles and a 129 wRC+. Overall, his 2016 season was a sign of things to come. Gonzalez is no longer the elite-producing first baseman he once was. With two years left on his contract, he'll continue to get the lion's share of playing time at first base for the Dodgers -- he has played no fewer than 156 games in any full season. At least he has that going for him. (Dustin Nosler)

The Quick Opinion: Once one of the game's most productive first basemen, Gonzalez suffered a bit of regression in 2016. He still had decent counting and rate statistics, but the days of him being a top fantasy first baseman are gone. He'll play 90-plus percent of his team's games, but he's more likely to see a steeper decline in the next year or two.
