Notes 
 Jeff McNeil feels like a late breakout player, but he just turned 28 years old. But one thing we know we need to judge players on is the entirety of their work, not just their most recent performance. With McNeil, if you look at his minor league numbers, you have to wonder if the power he showcased (23 home runs) - in a season where everyone else was hitting home runs - is for real. If it's not, he's a replaceable player, even at his premium position.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Lux would be a Top 75 player if we knew for sure that the Dodgers would give him everyday at-bats. He's a star in the making.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There were many skeptics after McNeil's strong rookie performance but it now clear that he is a hitter through and through. He'll again compete for the batting crown and seems likely to his 20+ homers once agin for the Mets this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
There is a chance Lux is dealt to Boston but it seems most likely that he'll stay. If he does, the most likely fantasy outcome is a Daniel Murphy-lite from day one but with upside for more. He hit .347 with 26 homers last year in just 113 minor league games.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Will boost your average, will be a solid contributor elsewhere, and has position flexibility. Very solid pick at ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Wild card who is likely to start the year near the bottom of the lineup and will likely sit against lefties more often than not. A decent gamble as he has a chance to play his way into a bigger role, but could be a long season if he struggles out of the gate.
