Notes 
 There's an obvious risk with Carlos Correa, but the risk attached to him isn't performance-based, rather, it's injury based. Correa just can't stay on the field. When he does play - including last season - we've seen what he's can do, and those peak A-Rod comparisons are still there. What's going against Correa is not only his health, but the position he plays is insanely deep, so it's easier to fade him for guys like Corey Seager, Jorge Polanco, Marcus Semien, and Tim Anderson. Do you know what those guys don't have? They don't have No. 1 at the position upside, nor do they possess top-25 overall upside. Correa does, and he's still only 25 and entering his peak years. This is a great spot to grab him, and you can take one of those depth shortstops later on in the draft to pair with him in case he gets hurt again.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The speed returned after disappearing for a year. He's 31 now, though, so expect a dropoff from the 31 steals from last year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 So far, we've only seen Correa play more than 110 games once in his five seasons. Whenever he is on the field, Correa has been a tremendous hitter so the upside is that of a top five fantasy shortstop but his floor is quite low because of the repeat injury risk.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
With so many competent fantasy shortstops, it may seem boring to draft Andrus in the 13th round but he has been so consistent and durable from year to year that this boring source of speed and average may prove well worth the price once again.
