Notes 
 It can be easy to forget that as a rookie in 2016, Seager was not only the rookie of the year, but an MVP finalist. He was plenty useful in 2017 fantasy baseball too, but missed most of 2018 with Tommy John surgery and hip surgery. He should be ready to roll by opening day so while there is some risk, consider that he is still just 24 so we may not have seen his best yet
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Anderson was remarkable in the first half but really slowed down to close the season. Even still, he managed 20 homers and 26 steals. While he may be hard pressed to repeat that this year, 15 and 15 would make him a useful mid-round pick so long as his batting average doesn't plummet further.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Seager is a former top prospect whose career got off to a great start before being derailed by injuries. He missed most of last season following Tommy John surgery, but should be ready to go for 2019. Seager is not much of a threat on the base paths, but he has shown the ability to hit around 25 home runs with a plus batting average, and his power could still be developing at age 24. He's an upside pick who could be undervalued coming off a lost season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Anderson was the only shortstop other than Lindor, Baez, and Story to post a 20-20 season last year (Turner fell one home run short). Make no mistake, with his poor plate discipline, Anderson is a roto/categories league specialist, but his counting stats can certainly play in that format. Plus, his .240 batting average is due for a bit of positive regression following an unusually low .289 BABIP.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 After undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery, Seager also had arthroscopic surgery on his hip in August. He's optimistic about his Opening Day availability, but drafters are still proceeding with caution. It doesn't help that he has never offered more than 26 homers or four steals in a single season. Let's not forget, however, that the 24-year-old shortstop is a career .302/.374/.494 hitter. There's plenty of profit potential if he returns healthy.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Anderson's .240 average? Meh. His .281 OBP? Gross. Twenty homers and 24 steals from a 25-year-old shortstop? Well, that's pretty good. A horrible real-life hitter, he can fill two of fantasy's most essential categories. After logging 606 plate appearances in each of the past two seasons, he appears in no danger of losing playing time for his ineffective bat. Be sure to have some high-average hitters in place before taking Anderson, and don't touch him in a points league.
