Notes 
 Bregman had 83 extra-base hits last season to go with 105 runs and 103 RBIs despite being just 24 years old. Chances are high that his fantasy value continues to trend north. With that said, he is currently recovering from elbow surgery so be sure to keep an eye on his progress before picking him up in the 1st round this spring.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
First basemen isn't as deep as it once was so commodities like Freeman are well worth investing in toward the middle of the third round. He is a lock for 90 runs, 90 RBIs and a .300 batting average each year and that type of player doesn't grow on trees
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 With great plate discipline and a great supporting cast, Bregman is a very safe, high-floor selection on draft day. He's an excellent bet to produce a .280 average, 25-30 HRs, and around 10 stolen bases, with big run and RBI totals thanks to the Astros' stacked lineup.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Freeman bounced back from an injury-shortened 2017 season to finish as the number one fantasy first baseman in 2018, despite a precipitous drop in his power output. Freeman may struggle to return to the 30-HR plateau if he continues to hit as few fly balls as he did last year, but he's now produced a .300 batting average in three straight seasons, is good for 5-10 steals, and should continue to see healthy run and RBI totals as the Braves' lineup comes into its own. Consider him a decent bet to again finish as the number one 1B in fantasy.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Bregman's superstar ascension featured a stellar .286/.394/.532 slash line, 32 homers, and more walks (96) than strikeouts (85). He finished among the top five in contact, outside-swing, and swinging-strike rates, so the elite plate approach could feasibly net a .300 average in 2019. Yet a .463 xSLG suggests he hit his power ceiling, which is concerning considering the drop in steals (10). Drafters now must also monitor his progress from offseason arthroscopic surgery on his elbow, making Bregman a dicey proposition in the first round.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Replacing Joey Votto as the line-drive king, Freeman has batted above .300 with a slugging percentage over .500 in each of the last three seasons. He played all 162 games and even poached a career-high 10 bases in 2018. He'd be fantasy's undisputed top first baseman if not for a late power outage limiting him to 23 homers. Now he's simply competing with Paul Goldschmidt for top billing as second-round mainstays. Now that he has slowly repealed the injury-prone label, Freeman is a relatively safe pick with MVP upside.
