Notes 
 Puig was a steady-if-unspectacular performer over his last two seasons in Los Angeles, settling in as a player who could hit around .265 while approaching 30 HRs and 15 SBs. He'll get a nice ballpark upgrade in his new home of Cincinnati, Ohio, and there is some belief that he will also benefit from being away from the distractions of LA, but it is hard to justify drastically raising our expectations for Puig until we see some evidence of it on the field. Don't overrate him, but he's certainly worth considering at his current ADP of 91.3.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
It can be easy to forget that as a rookie in 2016, Seager was not only the rookie of the year, but an MVP finalist. He was plenty useful in 2017 fantasy baseball too, but missed most of 2018 with Tommy John surgery and hip surgery. He should be ready to roll by opening day so while there is some risk, consider that he is still just 24 so we may not have seen his best yet
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Puig's career has been a bit of a disappointment, but even so, his last two seasons have been excellent. In that time, he has 30 homers and 18 SB per 162 games. If he is able to stay healthy, we could be looking at a further breakout to 35 and 20 thanks to a major ballpark upgrade in Cincy this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Seager is a former top prospect whose career got off to a great start before being derailed by injuries. He missed most of last season following Tommy John surgery, but should be ready to go for 2019. Seager is not much of a threat on the base paths, but he has shown the ability to hit around 25 home runs with a plus batting average, and his power could still be developing at age 24. He's an upside pick who could be undervalued coming off a lost season.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Puig has become every drafter's friend since getting shipped from the Dodgers to Reds. Although never matching the immediate high of his story-book debut, the outfielder has registered a .349 wOBA and 15 stolen bases in each of the last two seasons. Escaping the NL West juggernaut's jammed roster solidifies ample playing time, and he changes venues to one of baseball's best hitter's parks. Most projection systems forecast around 25-30 home runs with 12-16 steals while batting in the .270 vicinity. Those numbers would satisfy drafters who dip into the top 100 to snag an increasingly popular target.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
After undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery, Seager also had arthroscopic surgery on his hip in August. He's optimistic about his Opening Day availability, but drafters are still proceeding with caution. It doesn't help that he has never offered more than 26 homers or four steals in a single season. Let's not forget, however, that the 24-year-old shortstop is a career .302/.374/.494 hitter. There's plenty of profit potential if he returns healthy.
