 Paul Goldschmidt has been dealing with a sore right elbow since just before spring workouts began. This has limited his ability to throw, but he says he's been feeling better lately.

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
Maybe someone can try to hit the ball in the air too much. That's what happened with Hoskins last year. This is really his last chance to become a breakout star that we all had hoped. Added value in OBP leagues.
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
Hoskins' BA luck caught up to him and that BA dipped to .226. His power remained about the same rather than jumping to a new level like many seemed to be anticipating. He does still have upside for more but the floor, as we've seen, is a non-top 25 first basemen.
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.
