Fantasy Playes are dusting off their notes, and getting ready for the 2015 year.  If we did not accompany a guys total with a picture and quick blurb, it means we think the total is fair. Injuries may play a factor, as a guys age and surrounding teammates, or the Division he plays in.

Some guys have contracts to play for, or have shown up out of shape.

With an injury early, followed potentially with his usual dead arm period about a month into the year, you may only see the big LHP start about 25 games.  For those reasons alone, I would take the under on this selection

Hernandez cracked the 15 Win barrier for the 1st time since 2009, when he led the American League last year, when he took home 15 victories.  Aided by a better offense than has ever backed him, you best believe he would be near his 2009 total.  Take the over on this one.  Bank it baby.

Zimmermann won 14 contests last year, after putting up a 19 win campaign in 2013 to lead the National League.  He is in a contract year, and he is full value to pick over this total this upcoming year.

Bryce Harper heated up in the last 6 weeks of the year - with nearly 10 HRs to end 2014.  Only injury would prevent him from surpassing this over/under of 24.5 this season.

Inevitably, this guy will get hurt and miss chunks of the season.  As such, he will be limited in AB, and that total of 24.5 HRs is very high.

One could say that even in the most abysmal of circumstances last year, Davis still almost hit hat total last season, clubbing 26 Bolts in 127 Games Played.  Look for him to crush between 35 - 42 HRs this season.

Jose Abreu vaulted himself onto the American League power scene, but it may be hard to break the sophomore jinx.  If the team is more competitive, he will also draw a lot more Intentional Walks this season.

Yoenis Cespedes has hit at least 22 HRs in each of his 1st 3 years, and he will be ultra motivated to hit the long bombs in a contract year.  If he is on, no ballpark will hold his power.  That is a low number.

I would take the under on this one.  I believe that the Red Sox veteran will get banged up the way he plays, and only appear in 135 - 140 Games.  The club has a lot of depth now, and he could take the odd day off as well.  I project a .285 - .290 Average, but with about 550 AB, he would fall short of this clip.

Jose Altuve was the National League Batting leader and was inked to a major team friendly contract a few years back.  The 2012 and 2014 ALL - Star has a Career 3 Slash of  .302/.341/.401 - with 131 SB and 630 Hits in his  514 Games Played.  Altuve also led the MLB with Hits (225) and the AL in SB (56) - in winning his 1st Silver Slugger Award.  I doubt he will drop 41 hits this season.

Take the under on Pablo Sandoval.  Last year's hit total was the only time he had more hits than this over/under in the last 5 years.  It may be tough for him to stay healthy for a full season 2 campaigns in a row.

This is the biggest no brainer on the board.  Yasiel Puig's 162 Game average already reads at 182 hits per, and I think this guy is just getting started.  I won't be surprised if he challenges for the MVP crown in the National League in 2015.  He would most certainly crack the 158 hit barrier.
