Pence is a solid source for every category.
1. Hunter Pence, OF—Pence is being overlooked, but don't pass him up. Pence has the ability to hit .300 with 25 home runs, 100 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
2. Pablo Sandoval, 1B/3B—Sandoval had a hiccup in 2010, but rebounded nicely last season. He blasted 23 homers while only playing in 117 games in '11. He should be in store for another 20-plus homers with a .300 average.
3. Matt Cain, SP—Cain is the best pitcher on the Giants staff. He will build on his 2.91 FIP from a year ago. He'll notch 16 or 17 wins with a low-three ERA.
4. Dan Uggla, 2B—Second base is already shallow and it's even worse for the NL because Cano, Pedroia, Kinsler and Young all reside in the AL. Uggla is a lock for 30-plus homers.
5. Jay Bruce, OF—Bruce is one of the most frustrating players to own (he hit 12 homers in May, but then just five in June and July combined), but he has too much talent to ignore. He plays in a hitters' stadium and can easily reach 30 home runs again.
6. Stephen Strasburg, SP—Strasburg came back from Tommy John surgery at the end of last season and looked great. Although he'll have an innings cap this year, he can rake up the strikeouts and keep a low ERA for most of the season.
7. Starlin Castro, SS—As a 21-year-old, Castro led the NL with 207 hits last season. Castro will put the sexual allegation distraction behind him and continue to rake.
8. Cole Hamels, SP—Hamels looked every bit of his World Series MVP self in 2011. Hamels had a career-best 2.79 ERA last year and he also increased his ground ball rate.
9. Buster Posey, C—Posey should return to form after the home plate collision last year. He should also see some time at first base that will allow him to play more games.
10. Jose Reyes, SS—Reyes could be an elite fantasy player if he stays healthy, But that's one big if. He hasn't played in more than 135 games in any of the last three years. With that said, he's still worth a shot. He can be a shot in the arm for runs and steals.
11, Tim Lincecum, SP—Managers will look at his 2.74 ERA last year and think he got back on track, but his 3.17 FIP suggests otherwise. He's still solid but no longer a top-10 guy.
12. Michael Morse, OF/1B—Morse shouldn't take fantasy owners by surprise this season. Although the .300 average should fall, Morse will hit close to 30 home runs with around 90 RBI.
