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
Was it a fluke season for Jorge Soler? Possibly, but being that he cracked out nearly 50 home runs while underperforming in his expected stats leads me to say no, it wasn't. You don't love the ballpark, nor do you love the rollercoaster career that he's had thus far, so you should take a few extra seconds before deciding if you want to take the chance on Soler or not. You need more power than ever to compete, and at 78th overall, the risk is already built-in for what could be league-leading power production.
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
Soler did swat a ridiculous 48 homers with 117 RBIs and a decent batting average last year but let's not forget that he has missed considerable time due to injury every season prior. If he can stay healthy, that eighth round ADP will be a bargain, but it's a big if.
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
Great mid round target for HRs if falling behind. Should be a lock for 35+, new ball or not, as he earned his HRs in 2019.
