Notes 
 Soto was every bit as good as top-ten pick, Alex Bregman per plate appearance last season, but is going 20 picks later. Keep in mind, he accomplished that as a teenager. Don't hesitate to reach an entire round to grab him before he progresses even more
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Looking for 40 homers? Draft Davis and write it in ink. He has knocked 133 over the last three seasons with 335 RBIs in that time. The floor is as high as you'll find in the first five rounds but the batting average is almost certainly going to be around .250 again
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Soto breezed through the minor leagues and kept raking as a 19-year old rookie with the Nationals, hitting .292 with 22 home runs across his first 116 Big Leagues games. Perhaps most impressive of all, he walked nearly as often as he struck out, producing a .406 on-base percentage that proves he is more than comfortable at the Major League level. Soto hit the ball on the ground an awful lot as a rookie, so it remains to be seen if he is capable of delivering 30+ home runs, but at least 25 homers seems likely, and he should be a major plus in terms of batting average and run production while also providing at least a handful of steals. The kid is legit.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Consistency may be the most under-appreciated asset in fantasy baseball. Davis isn't young and flashy, and he won't help you in terms of speed or batting average, but he has delivered 40+ home runs and 100+ RBIs in three straight seasons, establishing himself as an incredibly reliable top-40 hitter in standard roto/categories leagues. In fact, he was so good last year that he finished as the 11th-best hitter. That will likely prove to be his high water mark, but there is little risk associated with using a fourth round pick on Davis.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Expected to play at least one more full season in the minors, Soto instead showed elite skills beyond his years, batting .292/.406/.517 at age 19. After popping 22 homers in 494 plate appearance, supporters are dreaming of a .300, 30-homer, 10-steal breakout. It will happen soon enough, but don't reach for those lofty expectations in 2019. A 53.7% ground-ball rate dampens his power prospects, especially since nearly a quarter of his fly balls went yard last season. If his top-30 ECR holds, drafters are likely overpaying for a 25-homer, five-steal hitter who should be going closer to Anthony Rendon than Andrew Benintendi.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Davis' consistently extends his uncanny streak of batting .247 in four straight seasons. He's also the only player to deposit at least 40 homers in each of the last three seasons. MLB's league-wide batting average dipped to .248 last season, so Oakland's slugger won't torpedo that category. And while power is now easier to find later in drafts, elite power remains a major asset. Having only played 11 games in the outfield, he won't have a position in some leagues. That utility-only label could turn him into a value, as drafters are needlessly reticent of taking such players.
