2014 Outlook: Rizzo doesn't garner much attention on a bad Chicago Cubs team, and after a letdown of a 2013 season, he might slide too far in many drafts this season. Though his batting average was destined to regress after his standout 2012, few expected it'd decline by 52 points. That leaves room for improvement, and considering he's now 24 years old with nearly 300 games of big league experience under his belt, not to mention a power hitter in Wrigley Field, Rizzo could be a potential value. He's a smarter hitter than you'd think -- his walk rate soared to 11.0 percent last season -- meaning he's an even more attractive selection in walks/on-base percentage leagues.

2014 Outlook: Acquired during last July's Matt Garza trade, Olt struggled for the Chicago Cubs' Triple-A affiliate late last season, batting .168/.276/.275 in 39 games. That cast doubt upon his role for their big club in 2014, as he's a long shot to make the team out of spring training. Anthony Rizzo has first base locked down for years and Kris Bryant threatens to surge past Olt at third base soon. He could yet emerge with a hot start to 2014 in the minors, but he's more in-season pickup than draft-day consideration.
