 We've seen enough of Conforto by now to know that the hype was overblown. Sure, he has had some extremely promising stretches, but over a full year of health in 2018, he wasn't as good as Randal Grichuk who is going over 100 picks later because of the difference in name value.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
McCutchen's strikeout rate has grown and his batting averaged has dipped over the last few seasons, but he has continued to be a very reliable source of 20+ homers, 10+ SBs, and solid run and RBI totals. Now, at age 32, he is finally set to play a full season in a hitter's park while surrounded by a potent lineup. McCutchen's numbers may fluctuate a bit based on where he ends up hitting in the lineup, but it's not unreasonable to expect his power and run production numbers to trend upward a bit in the best hitting environment of his long career.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 With 55 home runs over the last two seasons and now entering his age-26 season, Conforto has the makings of a consistent 30-HR guy, but he is unlikely to hit much higher than .250 and doesn't provide many stolen bases. Those limitations cap his upside, at least until he's able to make more consistent contact.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Even in a down year, McCutchen reached 20 homers for the eighth straight season and stole double-digit bases (14) for the ninth time in 10 MLB campaigns. He played most of 2018 in San Francisco's extreme pitcher park, so the power slide may be a matter of his surroundings rather than old age. When moving to the far friendlier Yankee Stadium, his slugging percentage boosted from .415 to .471. He picked another nice venue in Philadelphia, where he should bat at the top or heart of a revamped lineup that also added Jean Segura, J.T. Realmuto, and Bryce Harper. He's still a bargain going well after the top 100, so pounce now before Harper's signing drives up the price.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Although he returned sooner than expected from shoulder surgery, perhaps Conforto needed more recovery time. He entered the All-Star break batting .216 with a .366 slugging percentage. On the strength of nine September homers, he closed the second half by hitting .273 with a .539 slugging clip. He proved capable of handling fellow lefties (.345 wOBA) and finished a seemingly lost year with 28 long balls. Now healthy and ready for Opening Day, Conforto is a strong bet for 30 homers with a higher batting average if he regains past hard-hit standards prior to injuring his shoulder. This could be the last chance to snag him at a discount.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
McCutchen might not be that first round pick he once was when we were getting 30 homers, 20 steals and a .320 batting average, but he is still a plenty capable fantasy asset. He is as durable as they come and has managed 20+ homers in 8 straight seasons. Not only that. but he still steals double-digit bags per year and is moving into by far the best ballpark of his career so don't be surprised if we get a resurgence.
