Gary Sheffield, Tigers

Average position ranking on other popular fantasy baseball sites: 4

Why he's liked: He once was one of the game's best hitters and he can combine power with speed (22 steals last season).

Why you should be wary: This should make you feel old: He will turn 40 on Nov. 18. Sheffield was also bothered by a shoulder injury last season, and he has only 640 at-bats the last two years.
