Who Should I Draft? Alex Bregman vs. Nolan Arenado

Alex Bregman (3B – HOU): ECR 68.6

Alex Bregman will turn 30 in 2024, and yet, he just keeps plugging away at the hot corner in Houston. He actually improved on all of his 2022 stats last season, hitting 25 homers, knocking in 98, and crossing the plate 103 times. His consistency in ratios is impressive, and fantasy managers can expect numbers in the ballpark of .265/.365/.450. He doesn’t strike out and mashes lefties. Bregman is the overlooked-because-he’s-boring guy that you can steal in the ninth round or later, and he should be well worth the pick.

Nolan Arenado (3B – STL): ECR 75.8

Nolan Arenado hit 26 home runs in 2023, his first year below 30 since 2014 (excluding 2020). He also fell short of 100 RBIs for the first time since that year, too, coming in at 93. Essentially, Arenado showed signs of decline with an average slash line of .266/.315/.459. At age 32, it’s difficult to know if this was the new normal or a perfect storm of unfortunate breaks that hit the Cardinals as a team. It is hard to justify passing on higher-upside players in the general vicinity of Arenado’s ADP. However, he and Alex Bregman constitute the “boring veteran” section of the 3B position, and fantasy managers could certainly do worse.

And the winner is…

According to the FantasyPros Who Should I Draft? tool, 75% of experts would draft Alex Bregman.
