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
People are down on Polanco after the season he had last year, and it doesn't really make much sense. The only argument against him is the deep position, but you're getting a guy hitting in the heart of a loaded lineup. What's not to like?
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
Polanco picked up where he left off after the 2018 suspension by batting nearly .300 with over 100 runs and 22 homers. His speed is gone but for his 11th round price tag, that is a plenty useful stat line even if you have to use him in the utility spot instead of shortstop.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Great late option if you are looking to boost your average. Does a little bit of everything, so he won't hurt you.
