It’s funny how things work sometimes. Our top three fantasy outfielders in the AL Central are all left fielders.

Although a great player overall, Gordon has never lived up offensively to being the second overall pick in the 2005 draft. He has 121 home runs, 475 RBI, 565 runs and 79 stolen bases while hitting .268 in eight seasons.

Gordon has only hit .300 in a season once and went deep 20 times in a season twice.

Still, at his 109.5 ADP, he provides some value because he can do a little bit of everything.

Gordon has recorded between 87-to-101 runs, 14-to-23 home runs, 72-to-87 RBI and 10-to-17 steals  in each of the last four seasons. He will have less upside than other outfielders available in the 10th round, but Gordon should reach those ranges again.
