Notes 
 Benintendi is a spectacular real life player, but in fantasy, he was extremely similar to Jean Segura who happens to be going five rounds later. The arrow is pointing up for Benintendi, but not enough to warrant a top 30 draft pick
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Although his slugging percentage dropped from .618 to .496, Hoskins still popped 34 homers in his first full season. Boasting MLB's highest fly-ball rate (51.7%) and launch angle (22.6°) of all qualified hitters, drafters can expect more of the same. Yet it will come at the cost of batting average, and he'll only offer a handful of steals when pitchers aren't looking. Last year's 48th-ranked hitter on ESPN's Player Rater probably needs 40-plus homers to validate his hefty cost. At least he'll get plenty of RBI opportunities hitting alongside Bryce Harper.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 At 24 years old, Benintendi has yet to experience a major breakthrough in terms of home runs or stolen bases, but he's nonetheless settled in as a valuably reliable contributor across every offensive category. At this stage of his career, it's fair to expect more of the same -- close to 20-20 with an average in the .280-.290 range and strong run production numbers in Boston's loaded lineup. That was enough to make Benintendi a top-20 hitter in standard 5x5 formats last season, and should be again this year.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
At 25 years old, Hoskins has quickly established himself as one of the premier power hitters in the game, swatting an impressive 52 home runs through his first 728 Major League at bats. That power output should continue in 2019 and come with strong run production in a loaded Phillies lineup. Hoskins doesn't project to be a major asset in stolen bases or batting average, but his handful of steals and .250-ish average will hardly kill you. With a solid floor and tantalizing upside, Hoskins is right there with Cody Bellinger as the next generation of studs at the position.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Great in every category but not spectacular in one, a player of Benintendi's ilk typically doesn't merit top-25 consideration. But 20/20 candidates are hard to come by, especially if they provide a high batting-average floor and can score 100 times atop a loaded Red Sox lineup. The 24-year-old also might not have peaked yet, as he has improved his strikeout and walk rates each season. While he offers a relatively safe profile, this possible upside forces drafters to pay a steep price to snag him around the Round 2/3 turn.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Hoskins has plenty of power, as evidenced by his 52 homers in just 728 career at-bats, but his career batting average now sits at .249. There will surely be plenty or runs and RBIs once again, but there isn't much value in grabbing him during any of the first five rounds.
