Notes 
 Robles has been somewhat overshadowed by Juan Soto in Washington, but he had success in a brief stint with the Nationals last year and looks poised to break out in 2019. The projection systems generally expect Robles to steal at least 25 bases with low-double digit home runs and a batting average in the .275 range, which would probably be enough to make Robles worth deploying immediately, even in three outfielder leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
For a guy who just tallied 27 homers and 11 steals in 137 games, Hicks isn't getting much love. He also scored 90 runs thanks to sporting a 15.5% walk rate in a stacked Yankees lineup. Even without adding in the stats gleaned by his lineup replacement, the outfielder still performed well enough to demand top-100 consideration. A rise in contact (78.0%) and hard-hit rate (39.5%) should lead to a higher average and sustained power, and his cost more than bakes in the substantial injury risk. He's an especially wise choice in shallower three-outfielder mixed leagues, where it's easier to fill in the gaps when he misses some time. That will happen early, as a back injury will keep him out to start 2019.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Everyone expected Washington's hot-shot outfielder prospect to break out in 2018. Only it was Juan Soto instead of Victor Robles, who suffered an elbow injury in spring training. The higher-rated of the two rising stars last year, Robles is poised to replace Bryce Harper in the Nationals' starting lineup. If given the chance, he has shown the ability to hit for contact with solid power and intriguing speed. Lorenzo Cain's name is frequently mentioned as a comparison, and the rookie's Steamer projections (.274/.335/.417, 12 HRs, 27 SBs) aren't all that far off from the Milwaukee outfielder. Robles' ADP could quickly rise in light of Harper signing with the Phillies.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Hicks topped 500 plate appearances for the first time in his career in 2018, and rewarded the Yankees and fantasy owners with 27 home runs, 11 stolen bases, and 90 runs scored. Hicks' high walk rate makes him particularly valuable in OBP and points leagues, but he proved last year that he can be a solid second or third outfielder in standard 5x5 leagues if he can just stay healthy.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 If Alex Reyes doesn't make the Cardinals' rotation, Robles is far and away the favorite to win NL Rookie of the Year. Robles is a true five-tool talent that is polished enough to be a top 45 fantasy outfielder right away. The power may come a little later, but he will steal more than enough bases to warrant a mid-round pick.
