ESPN Fantasy Projection: Once a poster child for no-hit, all-field shortstops, Ahmed made great strides during the past two seasons to bring his hitting up to a respectable level. In 2019, he enjoyed his best season at the plate, as his .257 xBA, .422 xSLG and 92 wRC+ were all career highs. Ahmed chipped in just enough counting stats -- 19 home runs, 82 RBIs and eight stolen bases -- to appear on the radar in mixed leagues for the first time. Per his career norm, the right-hander struggled against same-handed pitchers (.234 average), but he otherwise didn't do anything particularly poorly. Both his strikeout rate (18.1%) and contact rate (79.8%) were slightly better than league average, and his 8.3 BB% was the best of his career. Ahmed's calling card will always be his defense, but a similar or even better showing at the plate should make him rosterable in most fantasy leagues.
