Notes 
 How should you approach Giancarlo Stanton in the draft? Look, there's no denying his talent, but has any player snake-bitten fantasy managers as often as Stanton has? He's worth the gamble here, but you're still in the early part of your draft where you're building your foundation. You don't want your foundation to come with built-in cracks.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
All it takes for Eddie Rosario to be a better fantasy player is for him to learn how to take a walk. He now has three seasons out of five with a walk rate of 3.7 or lower. If he could get that up to 8 percent, you're looking at a top 45 pick. As it is, he's a guy who is going to help you in home runs, RBIs, and be fine at batting average. That player is also known as nearly every other player in fantasy.
Michael Waterloo - 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
Even despite missing 25 games, Rosario still drove in 109 runs thanks to 32 homers. With a full season and his steady .280 batting average, drafting him at his eighth-round ADP is pure thievery. He won't steal any bags but there is certainly something to be said for his consistent bat.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 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.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Perennially underrated. Grab him in the 8th, 9th or even 10th round and there is no way he ends up a losing investment.
