8. Jhonny Peralta
2015 Stats: .275 AVG/17 HR/71 RBI
2016 Steamer: .262/14 HR/64 RBI

Peralta, 35 years old, has been solid for fantasy owners the last several seasons. His time on this list is getting numbered but for 2016, I still like him. He is solid across the board in home runs, average, and on-base. He will get a few more days off this season with Jedd Gyorko filling in from time to time. If you are in need of a guy who you know what you will get, I would take Peralta over Russell and Desmond.
