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
Fifty-three home runs. Pete Alonso surpassed the lofty expectations that he had entering his rookie year, and while you can attribute some of that to the ball, Alonso's power is still among the most elite in the game. Is he going to give you a lot of home runs and RBIs but not much elsewhere? Yeah, probably, but here's the thing with the argument that he's going to give you stats that are easy to find elsewhere - you need even more to win those categories now. If everyone is hitting bombs, get the guy who can out-homer them - especially at a top-heavy position like first base.
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.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Everything went right in 2019. Will he be able to continue to grow as a hitter after the strikeout rate rose in the second half?
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
