Notes 
 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
If we are looking at real baseball, Matt Chapman is one of the 10 best players in the league. If we are looking at fantasy with OBP, Chapman gets a boost in value. Neither of those are the case here, as Chapman's average keeps him out of the elite options at third base. What he'll give you is solid production, and if he takes the next step in batting average, he's top 5 at the position. As of now, though, at a deep position, he's a top 12 guy who gives you what a lot of players give you."
Michael Waterloo - 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
If fantasy were real life, Chapman might be the second best third basemen in the league but fantasy accounts for average instead of OBP and his 1 steal won't help much. Rather, he is big power guy with runs, homers and not much else to help your fantasy team.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 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.
