Profile: Gone is the Ellsbury who swiped 52 bases in 2013, as is the Ellsbury who somehow hit .321 with 32 bombs in 2011. His recent performance suggests .260 with 10 homers and 20 steals is more his speed these days. That has value in most fantasy formats, even if it renders him a below-average hitter in real life. The Yankees have a glut of young outfielders matriculating to the big leagues this year, but Ellsbury's job should be safe as long as he's able to man center field. At 33 years old, Ellsbury's career is very much on the downswing, but he should have at least one year of fantasy relevance left in him. He hits for just enough power and steals just enough bases to be of use. (Chris Mitchell)

The Quick Opinion: At 33 years old, Ellsbury's career is very much on the downswing, but he should have at least one year of fantasy relevance left in him. Players who hit .260 with 30 homers + steals aren't as common as they used to be.
