2017 FANTASY BASEBALL PLAYER ANALYZER: CURTIS GRANDERSON OUTFIELDER NEW YORK METS


In one of the more strange statistical developments of the 2016 fantasy baseball season, New York Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson put forth a terrific power campaign by slugging 30 home runs for the NL wild card winners.  You would think with all that power, Granderson would have been around at least 80 RBI as well.  Didn't happen as the utter lack of protection in the injury-ravaged Met lineup prevented Granderson from collecting more than his 59 RBI.  It was a staggering combination of numbers to say the least but Granderson did show that his home run swing is still in fine working order.  In fact what Granderson did on the power front was doubly-impressive when you consider he operates in spacious Citi Field and had little protection around him in the lineup.  Be that as it may, Granderson is pretty much just a home run asset at this late stage of his career (36 for 2017) and his .237 average last season is par for the course now on that front.  Also Granderson's days of being a very good steals guy has been a thing of the past for awhile, with just 4 steals in 633 at-bats bearing this out.  The home runs alone make Granderson an outfielder 3 for another year but backup status would be a better idea.

2017 PROJECTION:  .243 25 HR 75 RBI 86 R 3 SB
