Notes 
 Your goal in the first round is to not screw up the pick. With Arenado, you're getting arguably the safest player in the round not named Mike Trout on a year-to-year basis. It's now been four straight years with at least 37 homers, a .294 average, 100 runs and 110 RBIs.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
A really good slugger who appears to be rated higher because of his plus defense even though it isn't a category in leagues. Lack of stolen bases knocks him down a peg for me.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 There's very little to say about Arenado at this point. He's batted between .287 and .315, hit between 37 and 42 home runs, and driven in between 97 and 116 runs in each of the last five years. Entering his age-29 season, there are simply no concerns about Arenado so long as he remains in Colorado all year, though that is admittedly a bit of a question mark at this point. But really, so long as you are comfortable that you won't get steals from your first-round pick, there's no reason to shy away from Arenado whatsoever.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Bregman's multi-position eligibility makes him an attractive target in the second round, and he is a first-round pick in points leagues. You shouldn't expect 41 homers again from him, as his home ballpark aided him in reaching those numbers with his launch angle. Ten homers is achievable for Bregman, and he offers all-around production that makes him worthy of a selection here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Consecutive years of diminished stolen bases by Altuve and a drop off in elite strikeout SPs puts me in a place to select a "slugger only" player and Arenado is one of the best.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Advanced analytics say last season's power was a mirage. On top of that, the ball may be dejuiced, he won't be cheating anymore, and will likely lead the league in HBPs. Going to pass at current ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 Have we just gotten bored of drafting him in the top 5? Not worried about his numbers even if traded
