Notes 
 Andrus was downright awful in the 97 games he played last year, batting .256 with 6 homers and 5 steals. With full health, however, don't be surprised if he returns to the .300 hitting, 20 homer, 25 steal player that finished 2017 as a top fantasy shortstop.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Rosario is a former top prospect but that doesn't mean he has much more upside with the bat that we have already seen early in his career. A dozen homers and a .260 batting average is likely his cap, but with 25 stolen bases, that makes for a decent depth piece.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 After years of producing stolen bases but little else, Andrus rode a career high 20 HRs to finish as the number one fantasy shortstop in 2017. But he crashed back to Earth last year, managing just six homers and five steals across 97 games. The 2017 season is certainly looking like an outlier, but it won't cost much to see if he can bounce back.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Rosario's speed may top out at around 25 stolen bases, his plate discipline is poor. He isn't a standout in any other offensive category at the moment, so he will need to develop some more power to even become a Tim Anderson-kind of performer. That said, he was a highly-regarded prospect and is just 23 years old, so we can't rule out a big step forward. He's not an awful pick if you're looking for an upside selection to stash on your bench early in the season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Andrus went from 20 homers and 25 steals to six and five, respectively. The speed drop-off is especially jarring, as he had reached at least 20 steals in each of his last nine MLB seasons. The 30-year-old should bounce back a bit from an elbow injury that contained him to 97 games, but there's some concern since he attempted just eight steals in 2017's second half. While drafters shouldn't pay a significant price for a recovery, there's enough of a track record to bite as an inexpensive middle infielder.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Rosario was only 22 years old when everyone started losing faith. After failing to immediately become the next Francisco Lindor, he came to life by batting .284 with five homers and 15 steals over the final two months. He spent most of that stretch atop the Mets' lineup, a distinction he likely won't reclaim now that walks machine Brandon Nimmo can set the table for Jed Lowrie, Robinson Cano, Wilson Ramos, and Michael Conforto. Getting shunned to the bottom of the batting order is the only reason not to go all in on Rosario, a former top prospect who could still deliver 10 homers and 25 steals with a higher ceiling.
