A patient strategy is always best with outfielders. There are solid producers from the top to the bottom of the draft board, and you can always count on a few decent waiver-wire additions to pop up during the season. None of the players on this list are going in the first two rounds because with so many of them out there, you can always count on a few outfielders to drop in the draft. Let's take a look at 10 OFs who you should keep your eye on.
With an ADP of 254, Rasmus would be a great pickup at the end of the draft. He's a 20-plus home run guy, and if he can keep up his production from last season, he won't be the batting average drain he was previously.
Cuddyer had a career year last season, and though he may not repeat his .331 average, you can count on him for some solid power. He's definitely worth taking in the double-digit rounds where he's projected.
Gordon had a rough second-half last season, making him slide in a lot of drafts. His batting average may have taken a dip last year, but over the last three seasons, Gordon has averaged 95 runs, 80 RBIs, and 13 steals.
Hart is often available in the last few rounds, which is just crazy. If he stays healthy (he says his knee feels great), Hart is a safe bet to knock 25-30 home runs without killing your batting average.
Bautista is a monster who is going toward the end of the third round. He may be an injury risk, but still well worth the gamble. Over the past four seasons, he's averaged 40 home runs per 500 at bats. When Bautista is in your lineup, your OPS, RBI, runs and homers are getting a major boost.
Hamilton was terrible in the first half last season, but he got it together down the stretch. How much he is being undervalued because of one down year is hilarious. His ADP is at 73, and he's worth reaching for well before that.
He may only have half a season under his belt, but don't be afraid to bet on Wil Myers. He's been ready for his shot for a long time, and he showed it when given the chance last year. He's been crushing it in the minors for too long, and he is beyond ready to break out in the majors.
The only question regarding Craig is why it took the St. Louis Cardinals so long to give him a chance. Craig has a career batting average of .306 with an OPS of .850. The 13 home runs he hit last season doesn't represent his power, and the fact he also has first base eligibility adds to his value.
The Philadelphia Phillies didn't like to take advantage of Pence's speed, but the San Francisco Giants seem to be all over it. Last season, Pence stole 22 bases in 25 attempts, and could very well be a 20/20 guy again this season.
Holliday is as sure as sure things get. He's never hit below .290, and hasn't hit fewer than 22 home runs since 2005. How a guy who has a career OPS of .918, has an ADP of 56 is beyond me.
