Notes 
 Freeman gets a boost in points leagues, but, he's a safe bet for production in the second round. Freeman allows you to lock up your first baseman and not have to worry about playing catch up there later in the draft. The only knock with taking Freeman is that you miss out on the power-speed threats and the top pitchers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Fifty-three home runs. Pete Alonso surpassed the lofty expectations that he had entering his rookie year, and while you can attribute some of that to the ball, Alonso's power is still among the most elite in the game. Is he going to give you a lot of home runs and RBIs but not much elsewhere? Yeah, probably, but here's the thing with the argument that he's going to give you stats that are easy to find elsewhere - you need even more to win those categories now. If everyone is hitting bombs, get the guy who can out-homer them - especially at a top-heavy position like first base.
Michael Waterloo - 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
It feels odd that a rookie can hit 53 homers with 120 RBIs then end up draft towards the end of the third round but that's exactly what we have here. 60 homrs is a real possibility but then again, so are 35 homers with a .235 batting average, similar to the disappointment fantasy owners had with Hoskins last season.
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.
