2019 Fantasy Outlook
Those that rostered Murphy and waited out his lengthy recovery from offseason right knee surgery were undoubtedly frustrated when he flopped upon debuting in mid-June, as he submitted a woeful .643 OPS with only one homer and six runs in 28 games prior to the break. Just when shallow-league managers probably wanted to cut bait, Murphy rediscovered his vintage form, slashing .315/.346/.498 in the second half while enjoying a bump in run production after settling in as the Cubs' leadoff man following an August trade. Murphy is now in Colorado and proved last season that his stellar bat-to-ball skills remain intact, affording him a high batting-average floor, but the durability issues and the stark downturn in power he experienced last season are blights on his fantasy profile that should be taken into account. After carrying a .235 ISO and 36.9% hard-hit rate between 2016 and 2017, Murphy tailed off all the way to .155 and 26.1% in 2018. Read Past Outlooks
