Notes 
 A really good slugger who appears to be rated higher because of his plus defense even though it isn't a category in leagues. Lack of stolen bases knocks him down a peg for me.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
J.D. Martinez was a first-round player in drafts last year, but as is the case with fantasy managers, there's a quick overreaction to a "down" year, which is why we see Martinez fall to the second round this year. Targeting bounce-back players at a value is vital to winning fantasy leagues. Martinez can give you first-round value, despite not having the steals or Mookie Betts in the lineup.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Bregman's multi-position eligibility makes him an attractive target in the second round, and he is a first-round pick in points leagues. You shouldn't expect 41 homers again from him, as his home ballpark aided him in reaching those numbers with his launch angle. Ten homers is achievable for Bregman, and he offers all-around production that makes him worthy of a selection here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Seems to be overlooked every season. High end contributor in every category except SBs. Super solid 2nd round pick.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 Advanced analytics say last season's power was a mirage. On top of that, the ball may be dejuiced, he won't be cheating anymore, and will likely lead the league in HBPs. Going to pass at current ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
A safe, four-category stud that might be going at a slight discount

 SBs have decreased 17-10-5 over last 3 seasons
