    Player Outlook

    After a couple of injury-plagued seasons, Matt Kemp looked like he had returned to form over the final four months of 2014, so even though drafting him in the third or fourth round last year was completely justified, those who did probably felt like they should have known better when he turned in a miserable .249 batting average and .616 OPS over the first two months. But here we are a year later, lauding another impressive four-month stretch that saw him hit .274 with 22 home runs and a .827 OPS to end the year. Clearly, he still has something left in the tank at age 31, and coming off back-to-back 150-game seasons, he's no longer looking like such an injury risk. The inconsistency should be enough to talk you out of drafting him so early, though. Round 8 or 9 sounds about right.
