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
Mike Moustakas is the poster child for betting on yourself, as he's done so in back-to-back seasons. Now he's in Cincinnati, which we know is a great hitter's venue, so he won't experience any drop-off from leaving Milwaukee. What's more, Moustakas is playing second base, which makes him even more valuable than if he only had third base eligibility like in years past. The power is real, and so is this value for Moose in drafts.
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
Moustakas is a virtual lock to hit 30+ homers with 80+ RBIs but he doesn't steal any bags and with the power will likely come a sub-optimal batting average. You could do worse in the 9th round, however, because at the very least, he is a reliable three-category contributor.
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
Consistent 30 home run seasons eligible at 2B and 3B in an upgraded CIncy lineup. The Moose is loose and I am owning many many shares.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
  Perennially underrated. In a great hitters park he should reach 30+ homers again.
