Nick Markakis (OF, ATL) - Fantasy Baseball Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 195

CURRENT ADP: ~250 overall

ANALYSIS: Let's say you view Eaton as a significant injury risk, and Reyes as too vulnerable to playing time concerns. Markakis is the antithesis of both. He's averaged 670 plate appearances per season in his 13-year career and hasn't logged fewer than that since 2012.

There's not much pop to be found with Markakis, who hasn't eclipsed 15 homers in the past decade, but he's a career .288 hitter with a walk rate near 10 percent. That on-base and contact ability, paired with his durability, always results in respectable run production.

You've heard the aphorism, "Boring vets win fantasy leagues." They don't get much more boring than Markakis, who is expected to hit cleanup for the Braves again.
