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
Eugenio Suarez has often been one of the most overlooked players in fantasy, but now, it seems like there's risk with the profile. Not only is he coming back from a shoulder injury, but you're banking on a pace of 45-plus home runs again to provide the value you need. He's essentially empty power, as he doesn't hit for a good average, nor will he still bases for you. The position is deep enough that you can move past Suarez and his red flags.
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
Few hitters benefited as much from the postponement of the season as did Suarez, whose shoulder woes made his availability for Opening Day questionable. He'll now likely be at or close to full strength when the season begins. Whether he can repeat his near-50 homer performance is another question (he likely can't), but you should draft him as you would few to no health concerns.
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
This is your reminder that Suarez hit 49 home runs last season. He, of course, ended up with 100+ RBIs for the second straight season too, and his batting average won't even kill you. The fact that you can get him a round or two after Kris Bryant is absolute gold.
