Why is he undervalued? Because he's not hitting higher in the order? Lineup construction really doesn't matter that much in the grand scheme of things, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.

But yeah, Kemp is good. Like best OF in baseball good.

No way is Kemp underrated in fantasy circles. I'm sure there are more than enough casual fans that don't know him cause he doesn't hit at the top of the lineup, didn't make the All-Star team and because the media focuses their attention on another Dodger OF.

Kemp's defense has been superb. One play that jumps out is that Willie Mays-like overhead basket game-saving catch at Milwaukee.
