Notes 
 Trout may not be the clear-cut number one player in fantasy this year, but that's of no fault of his own, as he's coming off one of his best seasons ever, with a career-high 45 home runs in just 134 games. If you were desperate to find a knock on Trout, it's that he hasn't topped 140 games in any of his last three seasons, and his 11 stolen bases last year tied his low in a single season. But that's all window dressing on a truly special player who is obviously a top-three pick at worst.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Yelich followed up his preposterous 2018 season with an even better one in 2019, batting .329 with 44 home runs and 30 steals in just 130 games. His ridiculous 35% HR/FB rate regressed as expected, but only to a still nonsensical 32.8%, best in MLB. The issue with Yelich for 2020 has nothing to do with his talent, but is instead all about the fractured kneecap that prematurely ended his season. He's reportedly on track to be ready by Opening Day, but there's obviously a modicum of risk to factor in.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Although Mike Trout has missed some time, they've mostly been flukey injuries. Had he stayed healthy, we may have been talking about 55 homers with 15 steals and a .300 average. His consistency alone makes him the number one overall pick just ahead of Acuna.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Although Trout and Acuna were both phenomenal last year, it was Yelich who finished as the #1 fantasy player in baseball. Despite missing 30 games, he still hit 44 homers with 30 steals and a .329 batting average. Don't be shocked if he goes 50/30 with a batting crown this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Potential verse reliability is the question here. Acuna and Trout are likely to have comparable home run totals while Acuna should steal more bases. We know what we're getting fromTrout and with Rendon in the lineup, maybe 2020 is a career year. It wouldn't surprise me to see Acuna have the better statistical 2020, but Trout's reliability gets my pick at #1.1.
