Boston Red Sox OFs Allen Craig and Daniel Nava are basically competing for one roster spot this spring, unless the Red Sox trade OF Shane Victorino and the $13 million left on his deal. Craig and Nava both play the outfield and first base. Nava excelled against righties (.293 average/.372 on-base percentage), and Craig had what the Red Sox hope was an outlier year last season (.128 in 29 games after being traded to them).
Fantasy Tip: A lot will depend on how Craig and Nava fare this spring in camp. Craig's injuries likely played a big part in his off season in 2014, and he remains the player with more fantasy upside if you're taking a shot in the later rounds of your mixed league.
