2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PLAYER ANALYZER: COREY SEAGER SS LOS ANGELES DODGERS

The fantasy baseball community is nothing but a fickle one when it comes to evaluating players on a yearly basis.  Especially when it concerns young players who hint or have initially shown star potential, the ADP's tend to quickly skyrocket and then just as quickly recede if there was even a hint of a letdown campaign.  Such seems to be the case just a bit when it comes to Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager who often gets forgotten this year when discussing the top young shortstops in the game of fantasy baseball.  While Trea Turner, Francisco Lindor, and Carlos Correa made the cover of a certain fantasy baseball draft guide magazine this winter, Seager got left out despite the fact he is just 24 and went crazy at the age of 23 (.308, 26 HR, 105 R, 72 RBI, 3 SB) to put himself in first round territory for 2017.  Unfortunately, Seager dealt with some nagging injuries a year ago (including a bum hamstring, back, and elbow) that appeared to sap his strength a bit and cause his overall numbers to slip slightly to:

.295
23 HR
77 RBI
85 R
4 SB

Those are still tremendous offensive numbers for anyone to accumulate and this is especially true for somebody so young like Seager.  I think Seager gets knocked a bit unfairly because he doesn't steal bases like Turner or Lindor or while Carlos Correa was almost a zero in that category last season, he at least has done it before.  Still, Seager has a 25-home run bat and a smooth swing that could have him in batting title range as soon as this season.  He figures to easily hit 100 runs if he stays healthy and 85-90 RBI should be in play as well.  Yes, there are no steals but this is just a minor quibble.  Take advantage of any drop in ADP on Seager this spring as the kid is really some talent.

2018 PROJECTION:  .314 26 HR 80 RBI 97 R 5 SB
