Profile: Braun’s career has certainly had its ups and downs, but after bouncing back with an All-Star campaign in 2015, he continued to turn things around with a solid season last year while transitioning back to left field. The Hebrew Hammer hit .305 with 30 home runs and 91 RBIs, all his highest since he finished second in MVP voting in ‘12. Additionally, his .903 OPS and 16 stolen bases may not be as high as he was totaling in his prime, but they are certainly still very valuable contributions. Braun also continued to assault left-handed pitching, against whom he managed a 1.010 OPS last year (1.028 career). Unsurprisingly, his plate discipline numbers looked good, as his 8% walk rate was right in line with his career norm (also 8%) and his 17% strikeout rate was actually below his lifetime mark of 18%. Perhaps most importantly, Braun stayed off the disabled list for the second straight year and made it into at least 135 games for the third straight. Now 33 years old, he is expected to anchor the heart of the Brewers lineup once again, and as long as he is calling hitter-friendly Miller Park home, there is reason to believe that he can continue to be a strong fantasy contributor in all formats -- even if he is no longer a first-round pick. (Dylan Higgins)

The Quick Opinion: Braun lost his luster after some challenges both on and off the field, but the veteran slugger showed last year that he still has plenty left in the tank. With a solid average, plenty of power, and still some speed on a team that loves to run, he should still be trusted in all formats while his remarkable baseball skills are still shining through.
