Notes 
 The Reds are high on Akiyama, and he's going to lead off for them against righties. In deeper, daily leagues, he's worth the pick.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The Angels need to break camp with Adell, though they'll probably manipulate his service time by forcing him to stay down for seven days. Adell has superstar potential, but it's important to give rookies time to season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Akiyama should represent a fairly high-floor outfield option that you can get at a bargain basement price. He'll likely bat leadoff for the Reds, potentially hit 20 home runs and steal 10 bases, and pile on the runs scored. There's no Shohei Ohtani upside with the bat, particularly given Akiyama's age, but he'll likely be a decent five-category contributor who is basically free in drafts.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Adell might just have the brightest future of any prospect in baseball, but he is nowhere near as polished as someone like Luis Robert. Rather, the power may take some time to develop and he'll never be a source of steals. You can stash him, but he isn't expected to be a star right away.
