Notes 
 With Kris Bryant's profile, it's hard to justify taking him this high when there are guys who can give you the same production at the position later in the draft. The return to 31 home run was nice, yes, but his batted ball data points to that being the near-ceiling for Bryant in terms of home runs. For all of his accolades and loaded offenses that he's been in, he's only produced more than 100 RBIs once in his career.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Staying healthy is a skill, and it's one that Aaron Judge hasn't possessed over the past couple of seasons. Could his size contribute to that? He's missed significant portions of the past two seasons, and he was dealing with an injury that caused his stock to drop during draft season. There's no denying the power and overall contributions that he brings, but he, like teammate Giancarlo Stanton, gives owners pause about taking them thanks to durability concerns. The tried and true rule is to not take injured players in the draft as there is enough risk baked into players already. Pass on Judge unless he has a clean bill of health.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Bryant is an excellent player, of course, but his fourth round ADP is a classic case of the name driving the price. He should hit .275 with 30 homers if he stays healthy, but you can find that out of Eddie Rosario and several others a few rounds later.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Judge has a stress fracture in his rib, which showed "slight improvement" based on a CT scan in mid-April. But he is also dealing with a collapsed lung, and there is still no timetable for when he may be ready for baseball activity. Even with the postponement of the season, there's no guarantee that Judge will be ready to play at any point this season. Draft him with a heavy dose of pessimism and you should be fine.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 One of my biggest fades this season. Advanced stats say he did not earn all of his HRs or his batting average, he has missed time each of the last two seasons, his SB upside is limited, and he he is in the middle of whirling trade rumors. Hard pass.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Judge again missed 50+ games in 2019. While he is healthy, we are still looking at a 40+ homer pace with tons of runs and a batting average that won't kill fantasy owners, but with a second round ADP, the risk may be a little bit too much.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 appears due for BA regression
Al Melchior - The Athletic
Has played over 112 games once in four year. Very good player, but not taking on that injury risk in the second or third round.
