The newly acquired Tigers outfielder has an average ADP of 64.8 according to Fantasy Pros, so he is going several rounds after Brantley.

Cespedes is an interesting case as he will be playing his first full season away from the extremely pitcher-friendly confides of the Oakland Coliseum, but in 213 at-bats with Boston at the end of 2014, Cespedes only hit five home runs.

Along with his power, fantasy owners will hope his ability to get on base also returns. Cespedes posted a .356 on-base percentage in his rookie seasons in 2012, but it dropped to .260 last year.

Still, Cespedes had career-highs with 100 RBI, 89 runs, 156 hits, 36 doubles in 2014. He will at least provide elite numbers in those categories, which for a sixth round pick, is quite good.
