Notes 
 There's very little to say about Arenado at this point. He's batted between .287 and .315, hit between 37 and 42 home runs, and driven in between 97 and 116 runs in each of the last five years. Entering his age-29 season, there are simply no concerns about Arenado so long as he remains in Colorado all year, though that is admittedly a bit of a question mark at this point. But really, so long as you are comfortable that you won't get steals from your first-round pick, there's no reason to shy away from Arenado whatsoever.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
There's no reason to doubt Freeman's outstanding performance when healthy, but the fact that he's already dealing with elbow soreness after purportedly fighting through it last year is a bit discouraging. Unless Freeman's injury lingers deep into the spring, don't knock him too much, as his combination of batting average, power, and overall safety is rare. But for now, it's worth dropping him closer to the back end of the second round than the front.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Arenado won't steal any bases, but besides Trout, this is the most consistent and reliable bat in the majors. If he doesn't get traded, he is a virtual lock to again finish among the top 10 fantasy hitters and you just may be able to snag him at the end of the first round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Freeman might not be the most exciting second round pick, but the floor over the past four years has been a .300 hitter with 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and 25 homers. Last season he was at 113 runs, 38 HRs and 121 RBIs so it isn't like his ceiling is too bad either.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Consecutive years of diminished stolen bases by Altuve and a drop off in elite strikeout SPs puts me in a place to select a "slugger only" player and Arenado is one of the best.
