Notes 
 Braun isn't often healthy, but when he is on the field, he has continued to rake over the last three years. In that time, his per 162 game average is 30 homers, 18 steals and a .279 batting average. If he can finally stay on the field, fantasy owners will hit the jackpot this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
While Jed Lowrie and Todd Frazier both starting 2019 on the IL, Alonso forced the Mets' hand and won an Opening Day by displayed his Herculean power throughout spring training. The rookie could promptly crush 30 long balls if locked into the starting role all year. Their infield, however, could get crowded when Lowrie and Frazier return, so he may need to hit out of the gate to preserve a big league role.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Braun is no longer the dominant fantasy outfielder he once was, but he looks to be criminally underrated at this stage of his career. You can't expect him to play more than 120-140 games, but Braun has proven over the last couple seasons that he's capable of producing 20+ HRs and 10+ SBs even while missing a quarter of a season, and his batting average could even pop back up into the .280+ range after two straight low-BABIP seasons. Hitting in a terrific lineup and favorable home ballpark, Braun (ADP 203.7) should be able to again produce numbers that resemble those of OFs going much earlier in drafts like George Springer (ADP 54.3), Mitch Haniger (ADP 81.0), and Justin Upton (ADP 85.7).
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Like Vlad Jr. and Eloy, Alonso's true impact will depend on whether on not the big league club makes space for him. As it stands now, Todd Frazier is likely to play first base with Jed Lowrie manning the other corner. It is possible that Alonso pushes the envelope in the spring, forcing Lowrie to shortstop, but more than likely, we are looking at his arrival coming when the first infielder heads to the DL. With an older group of players, that may be sooner than later. When he arrives, he will come with a dangerous stick right away and could be one of the stronger second half rookies. In the minors last year, Alonso swatted 36 homers and drove in 119 runners in just 478 at-bats.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 A regressing Braun still offers value. Despite posting career lows in batting average (.254), OBP (.313) and wRC+ (105), the veteran still stockpiled 20 homers and 11 steals last year. He faces far less competition for playing time now that the Brewers have traded Domingo Santana and Keon Broxton, so he'll go as far as his health takes him. The 35-year-old isn't washed just yet; he notched a .296 xBA and .515 xSLG, per Statcast. He should at least fare closer to 2017's .268/.336/.487 slash line, and a 25/15 campaign isn't out of the question if he could piece together 550 plate appearances in around 130 games. A massive discrepancy between his consensus ADP (210) and ECR (141) reveals an intriguing buy-low opportunity.
