Notes 
 What set Paul Goldschmidt apart from the other first basemen for years were his steals. Over the past four years, his stolen base totals have dropped from 32 to 18, to 7, to 3 last year. He had 34 home runs, which were nice, but he also had his lowest triple-slash line since his rookie year in 2011. He'll still give you production at a shallow position, but this isn't going to be a gradual decline with Goldschmidt.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Everything that could go right, did go right for Bo Bichette in his rookie year in Toronto. Is he a .300 hitter? Probably not, but he'll hit around .285 with a power/speed combo that will play up in Toronto. Could there be an adjustment period in his second season? Sure, there could. Are there concerns that the performance wasn't legit? Not really, if you look at his prospect pedigree and his underlying numbers. The ceiling is sky-high here, and Bichette could be a top 5 shortstop off the board in 2021."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Goldschmidt's batting average may have dipped thanks to a slow start but he finished with 30+ homers for the third consecutive season and very nearly went for 100 runs and 100 RBIs. More than likely, that batting average will end up north of .280 again too which would make him a steal at the end of the fifth round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Like his father, the young Bichette is one heck of a hitter and he proved that by batting .311 with 11 homers in just 46 games last year. Over a full season, it would be no surprise if he morphed into a 30 homer threat with a quality batting average and all the runs and RBIs to accompany it.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 His production has been on a steady decline over the past three years as he has gotten older, and that is not something I plan on buying into in the 5th round.
