Notes 
 How many guesses would it take you to land on Jose Abreu as the AL leader in RBIs in 2019? He's not a sexy player, and frankly, he never has been. But he's a consistent source of RBIs and his batting average bounced back after a down year in the category in 2018. Even if he doesn't drive in 123 runs again, he's in the best lineup of his career, and he's a lock as a top 10 first baseman.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Eugenio Suarez has often been one of the most overlooked players in fantasy, but now, it seems like there's risk with the profile. Not only is he coming back from a shoulder injury, but you're banking on a pace of 45-plus home runs again to provide the value you need. He's essentially empty power, as he doesn't hit for a good average, nor will he still bases for you. The position is deep enough that you can move past Suarez and his red flags.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Abreu outperformed Anthony Rizzo and Paul Goldschmidt last season, knocking 33 homers with 122 RBIs and a solid as always .282 BA. He hasn't slowed down one bit despite the age so you can rely on him to produce once again if you grab him in the 7th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Few hitters benefited as much from the postponement of the season as did Suarez, whose shoulder woes made his availability for Opening Day questionable. He'll now likely be at or close to full strength when the season begins. Whether he can repeat his near-50 homer performance is another question (he likely can't), but you should draft him as you would few to no health concerns.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Super reliable option with a now improved lineup. Very safe and consistent pick at ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
This is your reminder that Suarez hit 49 home runs last season. He, of course, ended up with 100+ RBIs for the second straight season too, and his batting average won't even kill you. The fact that you can get him a round or two after Kris Bryant is absolute gold.
