Notes 
 Rosario is a former top prospect but that doesn't mean he has much more upside with the bat that we have already seen early in his career. A dozen homers and a .260 batting average is likely his cap, but with 25 stolen bases, that makes for a decent depth piece.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
DeJong is one of the better power options at shortstop, but he doesn't project to be of any help in batting average or stolen bases, meaning he'll need a big boost in runs and RBIs to become interesting in standard 5x5 leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Rosario's speed may top out at around 25 stolen bases, his plate discipline is poor. He isn't a standout in any other offensive category at the moment, so he will need to develop some more power to even become a Tim Anderson-kind of performer. That said, he was a highly-regarded prospect and is just 23 years old, so we can't rule out a big step forward. He's not an awful pick if you're looking for an upside selection to stash on your bench early in the season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Since joining the league, DeJong is fifth among shortstops in homers per trip to the plate. He is right behind Francisco Lindor and Trevor Story, who are being drafted in the first and second rounds. Granted, the speed is a major difference but the batting average isn't at .275, .267 and .263. If DeJong can stay on the field this year, consensus projections like him to produce a very similar season to Carlos Correa who is being drafted 140 picks higher.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Rosario was only 22 years old when everyone started losing faith. After failing to immediately become the next Francisco Lindor, he came to life by batting .284 with five homers and 15 steals over the final two months. He spent most of that stretch atop the Mets' lineup, a distinction he likely won't reclaim now that walks machine Brandon Nimmo can set the table for Jed Lowrie, Robinson Cano, Wilson Ramos, and Michael Conforto. Getting shunned to the bottom of the batting order is the only reason not to go all in on Rosario, a former top prospect who could still deliver 10 homers and 25 steals with a higher ceiling.
