Notes 
 Profar finally got a full chance last year for Texas and posted 20 homers and 10 stolen bases. He takes a hit in projections moving from Texas to Oakland's ballpark, but keep in mind that he just turned 26 years old and very likely hasn't hit his prime yet.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Rosario is a former top prospect but that doesn't mean he has much more upside with the bat that we have already seen early in his career. A dozen homers and a .260 batting average is likely his cap, but with 25 stolen bases, that makes for a decent depth piece.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Profar finally delivered on some of his long-forgotten prospect hype in 2018, putting up 20 homers and 10 steals with decent run production numbers. It remains to be seen if he can maintain or improve on those numbers, but he's another reasonable bench stash considering his prospect pedigree and the fact he'll have position eligibility all over the diamond.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Rosario's speed may top out at around 25 stolen bases, his plate discipline is poor. He isn't a standout in any other offensive category at the moment, so he will need to develop some more power to even become a Tim Anderson-kind of performer. That said, he was a highly-regarded prospect and is just 23 years old, so we can't rule out a big step forward. He's not an awful pick if you're looking for an upside selection to stash on your bench early in the season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 It took a bit longer than expected, but Profar finally emerged as a strong major leaguer by batting .254/.335/.458 with 20 homers and 10 steals. The Rangers oddly moved him to the A's, a move that presents a major ballpark downgrade after he slugged .511 in Arlington. Aside from a possible average uptick, the skills don't portend another leap forward. Perhaps the biggest incentive to drafting Profar is gleaning eligibility at first base, third, shortstop, and even second (10 games) in some leagues.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Rosario was only 22 years old when everyone started losing faith. After failing to immediately become the next Francisco Lindor, he came to life by batting .284 with five homers and 15 steals over the final two months. He spent most of that stretch atop the Mets' lineup, a distinction he likely won't reclaim now that walks machine Brandon Nimmo can set the table for Jed Lowrie, Robinson Cano, Wilson Ramos, and Michael Conforto. Getting shunned to the bottom of the batting order is the only reason not to go all in on Rosario, a former top prospect who could still deliver 10 homers and 25 steals with a higher ceiling.
