Profile: After enjoying a power spike during an injury-shortened 2015 season, we wondered if Cozart would now become an acceptable asset in shallow mixed leagues. Though injuries hampered him again, he held onto a majority of his gains and even upped his average fly ball & line drive exit velocity. Encouragingly, his walk rate has been ticking upward, though it still remains below average, and he continues to make pretty good contact. If he could actually stay healthy all season and remain slotted at the top of the order, he would be a respectable mixed league option. But health remains an issue and at age 31, we can't expect it to magically get better. (Mike Podhorzer)

The Quick Opinion: Cozart proved that his amped up power in 2015 wasn't entirely a fluke, but injuries once again took their toll and prevented him from just barely eclipsing 500 plate appearances. If he could somehow remain healthy all season, he'll be an acceptable cheap middle infield option, but at age 31, it's difficult to bet on such a feat.
