Notes 
 Keston Hiura was my favorite player to go after in 2018 first-year player drafts who wasn't named Shohei Ohtani. Yes, more than Luis Robert. I compared him at the time to prime Dustin Pedroia but with more power. Hiura's early returns were better than I had imagined. He's in the perfect ballpark, and he's at the shallowest position outside of catcher to justify this ranking - even with the high strikeout marks. Hiura is going to be a top-three second baseman in fantasy for the next decade."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Jeff McNeil feels like a late breakout player, but he just turned 28 years old. But one thing we know we need to judge players on is the entirety of their work, not just their most recent performance. With McNeil, if you look at his minor league numbers, you have to wonder if the power he showcased (23 home runs) - in a season where everyone else was hitting home runs - is for real. If it's not, he's a replaceable player, even at his premium position.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 In his first year with the big league club, Hiura was every bit as good as advertised, going for 19 homers, 9 steals and a .303 BA in just half a season. We could very well see him among the top three in the position by year's end, but he isn't quite as safe as any of the options above him.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
There were many skeptics after McNeil's strong rookie performance but it now clear that he is a hitter through and through. He'll again compete for the batting crown and seems likely to his 20+ homers once agin for the Mets this season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Keston Hiura is one of my most owned players and one of my favorite picks at ADP this season. You are getting what I call the "Sophomore Discount," which is when rookies blow up on to the scene and people are hesitant to fully buy into it. Hiura is a pure hitter, hits the ball ridiculously hard, and will bat in the heart of a solid lineup. Sign me up as he has clear 30/15 upside and room for more.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Will boost your average, will be a solid contributor elsewhere, and has position flexibility. Very solid pick at ADP.
