Daniel Murphy, Washington Nationals
Hey Mets fans, remember when the front office didn’t think Daniel Murphy was worth the money? Guess what? He was!
A change of scenery carried Murphy’s postseason run from 2015 right into his 2016 MVP campaign and he seems to have found a new home in Washington.
He hit 25 homers and drove in 104 runs with a pretty solid .347 batting average en route to finishing second in NL MVP voting.
Murphy hits in a very good but top heavy lineup in Washington and should come pretty close to those numbers again this year.
Although, he could have had an outlier season such as the aforementioned Brian Dozier, but Murphy has shown in the past that he was a very good hitter.
He’s 31, so he doesn’t have many more years of top notch production but for the next two or three years, he will give you great production.
Remember, in dynasty leagues, you need to win now but also have a good team for the future. Murphy is a solid player to have on your team in every type of fantasy league.
