2019 Fantasy Outlook
After smacking eight home runs in 2016, Andrus exploded for 20 homers in 2017. That uptick in power, combined with nine consecutive seasons of 20-plus stolen bases, made Andrus a top-60 pick on average in the NFBC. Unfortunately, Andrus was hit by a pitch in April and suffered an elbow fracture which cost him more than two months, and the power simply never returned. More confoundingly, he stopped running almost entirely, attempting a mere eight steals in 97 games. His batting average also plummeted and in the end, Andrus wasn't even a top-40 player at his own position. At 30 years of age, Andrus still has the speed to get back to 20 steals, but a lot will depend on new manager Chris Woodward's tendencies in the running game. There's also the question as to whether the batting average will return, which doesn't seem like a lock (.239 xBA). What is for sure is that Andrus will continue to play every day. Read Past Outlooks
