Notes 
 Staying healthy is a skill, and it's one that Aaron Judge hasn't possessed over the past couple of seasons. Could his size contribute to that? He's missed significant portions of the past two seasons, and he was dealing with an injury that caused his stock to drop during draft season. There's no denying the power and overall contributions that he brings, but he, like teammate Giancarlo Stanton, gives owners pause about taking them thanks to durability concerns. The tried and true rule is to not take injured players in the draft as there is enough risk baked into players already. Pass on Judge unless he has a clean bill of health.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If you checked out early for fantasy football, you may have missed how Eloy Jimenez finished the season. He hit .325 with 12 home runs and a near 1.000 OPS in his final 40 games of the year. It gives renewed optimism for those invested in Jimenez after he had a solid - not great - rookie campaign, though injuries cut short a mid-season hot streak. It's smart to bet on a pedigree with prospects like Jimenez and Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. When you see a long stretch of success, it gives you a reason to push them up and remain optimistic in their present and future value.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Judge has a stress fracture in his rib, which showed "slight improvement" based on a CT scan in mid-April. But he is also dealing with a collapsed lung, and there is still no timetable for when he may be ready for baseball activity. Even with the postponement of the season, there's no guarantee that Judge will be ready to play at any point this season. Draft him with a heavy dose of pessimism and you should be fine.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Eloy started out rough for the White Sox last year but he turned it on to close the season, displaying the legitimate 45 homer power that he was thought to eventually morph into in the MLB. Don't be shocked if that batting average jumps 20 more points to .290 as well.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Judge again missed 50+ games in 2019. While he is healthy, we are still looking at a 40+ homer pace with tons of runs and a batting average that won't kill fantasy owners, but with a second round ADP, the risk may be a little bit too much.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 
 Has played over 112 games once in four year. Very good player, but not taking on that injury risk in the second or third round.
