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
After weeks of rumors, Betts was finally traded to the Dodgers, but the move shouldn't impact his value much. His plate appearances and home runs, because of the less hitter-friendly parks in his new division, may downgrade his numbers ever so slightly. But Betts has essentially averaged a .305-120-30-95-25 line over his past four seasons. Even with a minor drop, he'll still earn his top-five draft position.
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
Mookie's batting average dipped 50 points from the year prior and he stole 14 fewer bases despite an extra 15 games played. With that said, his 2018 performance shows he has the upside to finish as the #1 fantasy player. As it is, the choice at #4 and #5 is between he and his teammate, Cody Bellinger.
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.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Betts looks like a very safe, conservative 25/25 2020 OF in LAD. Leaving Fenway Park won't be a huge hit to the HR totals, if at all. Betts could be statistically better than Story/Lindor and Turner but it's a close call. Take the SS' ahead of the OF and go with the SB potential of Turner before Betts.
