Craig Rosenkrantz
Wed, Mar 18th
  Giancarlo Stanton (calf) could be ready to play by the start of the regular season, Bryan Hoch of reports.
John Aubin
Tue, Mar 17th
 We've never seen Rizzo hit 35 homers or bat .300 but his production has been so steady that fantasy owners can be certain they'll get 25 homers with 80+ runs, 90+ RBIs and a batting average north of .275. That makes him a worthwhile 4th or 5th round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Stanton's Grade-1 hamstring strain was going to keep him out of action for Opening Day, but he now should be ready to go whenever the season begins. Stanton will always be an injury risk, but for now, view him as a healthy option heading into the season. His power potential therefore makes him an option in Round 3 or 4, depending on your risk tolerance.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 About as safe as you can get. Great pick if you take risks elsewhere.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Stanton missed virtually the entire season but let's not forget that he only missed 7 games in the prior two years and combined for 97 homers, 232 RBIs and 225 runs scored. Don't be mistaken, this is still one of the best hitters in baseball. With that said, he is already dealing with another injury.
