Notes 
 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
Springer is one of a handful of stars who started off their season with a rough patch. He started to turn in around in the second half before his injury, but only enough to get his final line to 22 homers and a .265 batting average. If he can stay healthy, Springer might lead the AL in runs scored along with plenty of homers and RBIs, but the speed has essentially disappeared
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
After nearly going 40-40 in the minor leagues in 2013, Springer seemed like he could be a fantasy monster, but he simply hasn't been the same player at the Major League level. He's certainly been no slouch, scoring over 100 runs in three straight seasons while also averaging 28 home runs over that stretch, but he hasn't swiped even double digit bases since 2015 and is a career .265 hitter. He should continue to rack up the counting stats as long as he's hitting atop the Astros' productive lineup, and isn't an awful pick in the fifth or sixth round of fantasy drafts, but his once sky-high fantasy upside nows seems like a thing of the past.
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.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
It was a rough year for Springer Dingers, as the Astros outfielder deposited just 22 homers with a pedestrian .265/.346/.434 slash line. Thumb and quad injuries sapped his power late in the season and limited him to 140 games for the second straight year, and yet he managed over 100 runs for the third consecutive campaign. Caught stealing 21 times in 41 times, he's no longer a steals asset. He's looking more like a floor compiler who could underwhelm without a return to roughly 30 dingers.
