Notes 
 Jose Altuve has lived in the early rounds of fantasy drafts for the past five years. But now, after the cheating scandal and slight decline, Altuve is dropping to the third round. If you haven't noticed yet, second base is a weak position, so it's a good spot to grab Altuve. He's still on the right side of 30, but just temper the expectations for the stolen base numbers to return to vintage Altuve-type numbers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Even with youth on Albies' side, he's a rather boring pick here, but boring can be good - especially at the position. But, at a third-round cost, he doesn't really stand out in any category. You're banking on the .295 average being more legitimate than the .261 average in 2018 and hoping that he steals mid-teens bases again."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There is a TON of upside potential for Altuve as much as 15 picks higher than where I am ranking him, but as I do my rankings I keep seeing players I would rather have and more and more doubts that Altuve will get back to stealing 20+ bases. Without those steals, the plus BA isn't enough to make me bite over the alternatives.

A useful, across-the-board contributor who just turned 23 years old
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Scary drop in SBs and SB success rate. Average dropped under .300 for the first time since 2013. Exit Velocity and Hard hit % were below average so a significant drop in HRs can be assumed. Avoiding at ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Hit a career-high 31 homers in 2019 and finished the season on a tear. No longer a reliable source of steals
