Profile: Well, it wasn’t 2014, but 2016 can hardly be considered a success for Davis. Posting a batting average on balls in play 35 points below your career average will do that. The good news is that his power is still elite (25% home run per fly ball ratio) and he has continued to hold his walk and strikeout rates steady. While it’ll be difficult to post a .300 isolated power again (and with that a 50-homer season), there is reason for optimism. Davis pulled the ball less in '16 than he had in any season since he became a full-time starter. Any reversion back to his previous tendencies gives glimmers of additional power upside, even as he enters the wrong side of 30. The bad news is that 2017 marks the loss of outfield eligibility for Davis. While he has the bat to provide offensive value at first base, the loss of the outfield significantly hinders his value. Consider him an elite source of power regardless of the scoring format or depth of your league. However, he is outside the top-tier of first basemen (Paul Goldschmidt, Miguel Cabrera, Anthony Rizzo, Joey Votto, Freddie Freeman, Edwin Encarnacion) even if he maintains higher upside than many of his peers. Group him similarly to Carlos Santana, Brandon Belt, and Jose Abreu with added risk, both positively and negatively. (Joe Douglas)

The Quick Opinion: Losing outfield eligibility hurt Davis. He still maintains unparalleled power upside but should be considered outside the top tier of first basemen in standard leagues. In Ottoneu formats, consider him a stable second-tier (Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Abreu, Carlos Santana) option with higher risk than many of his counterparts.
