Notes 
 Originally expected to return from a calf injury in early April, Lindor suffered an ankle ailment while rehabbing. There's now no timetable for his recovery, and it's increasingly hard to see Cleveland letting him run once back on the diamond. Investors have little choice but to wait and hope for the best, but they shouldn't expect him to return first-round value.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Correa has missed a significant chunk of time in each of the past two seasons, and while he struggled in 2018, don't forget that he is still just 24 years old and one year removed from being the MVP front-runner prior to his injury. There is major upside here and he may prove to be a league winner
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Lindor kicked it up another notch in 2018, mashing 38 homers to go with 25 steals and his league-leading 129 runs. We can't bank on a repeat performance in 2019, but with even 80% of those numbers at shortstop, he'd return easy 1st round value.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Correa was an elite prospect who took the league by storm as a rookie in 2015, but his last two seasons have been undone by injuries. In 2017, he was producing like an MVP candidate before tearing a ligament in his thumb in July. Last year, his season never got off the ground due to back issues and breathing problems. Correa has pronounced himself fully healthy this spring, making him a seemingly strong bounce-back candidate, but with his stolen base totals drying up over the last two seasons, he will need to find his way to 30+ HRs or a .300 average in order to fully live up to the hype.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Coming off a tremendous season, Lindor would arguably deserve to be in a tier of his own at shortstop if he hadn't suffered a strained calf in early February. As it is, he falls into a similar category of player as Javier Baez and Trevor Story: shortstops coming off of 30-20 seasons who have sky-high upside but also a bit of risk. The concern for Lindor is that he misses the beginning of the season and/or doesn't run as much upon his return, but the good news is that he was so good last year that they can afford to drop off a bit and still remain an elite fantasy option.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Injuries have limited Correa to 109 and 110 games over the last two seasons, respectively. He stole five bases combined and saw his wOBA plummet from .394 to .313, which was even higher than his .306 xwOBA. Because of his age (24) and instant success upon reaching the majors, there's little discount after the down year. He's too risky in the top-three rounds, but it's hard to ignore the MVP upside if he slips.
