2017 Outlook: Pollock's raw, five-Rotisserie-category talent is unmistakable -- he was the fifth most-valuable player in Rotisserie and 16th-most in points-based scoring in 2015 -- but his injury history is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook. After he missed all but two weeks of the 2016 season, first with a fractured right elbow suffered just before Opening Day, then with a strained left groin suffered in mid-September, Pollock's average professional games played is a mere 109 the past five seasons. While it's possible that his elbow issues are now behind him -- this was a recurrence of an injury upon which he had surgery in 2010, as he had been experiencing soreness in the elbow during the spring of 2016 -- Pollock's odds of a fully-healthy year, à la 2015, aren't outstanding. He's a wiser bet in Rotisserie scoring, where his stolen bases and runs scored contributions carry greater weight, and with some luck could rebound to the second-round projection in that format (and third/fourth in points), but the closer to those valuations you select him, the greater the prospect for disappointment.
2017 Outlook: Tomas' breakthrough in 2016 was as representative of the league's outburst in the department as any individual player; his is legitimately elite, but no other facet of his game significantly stands out. He's a free swinger whose modest walk and high strikeout rates make him a shaky choice in points-based scoring, as well as leaves him susceptible to slumps in Rotisserie scoring. Thanks to his aggressive approach and cozy home confines, Tomas stands an excellent chance at another 25-plus homers - perhaps more if the game's power surge extends into 2017 - but his poor defense could eventually cast doubt upon his playing time. He's a useful fourth or fifth outfielder in Rotisserie, but perhaps a first-man-off-your-bench in points.
2017 Outlook: After a breakthrough 2015, Peralta had his 2016 ruined by wrist issues -- first inflammation that cost him a one-month absence in May/June, then season-ending surgery following his crashing into an outfield wall in early August. These could adversely impact his performance this season, making him a risky pick, at least without some sort of Cactus League evidence that he's 100 percent. Before getting hurt, Peralta looked like a modest contributor in terms of batting average and power, albeit far from "superstar" status; he'd be a fourth or fifth outfielder in mixed leagues in all likelihood if he played the year healthy.
