Notes 
 Ignore the eligibility concerns. Ignore the cheating scandal. Don't totally ignore the knees, but do pay attention to the results. Alvarez put on a historic performance last year across the majors and minors, and there's really nothing to his profile that suggests it wasn't all legit. Before last season, he was really good in the minors, but not quite this good. Fortunately, we can chalk that up to another year of development. Alvarez won't give you steals, but the rest of the numbers are up there with the elite options in fantasy. Yeah, we're talking about a top-five pick if he does it again. He has the pedigree, and he's had the success early in his career.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Fifty-three home runs. Pete Alonso surpassed the lofty expectations that he had entering his rookie year, and while you can attribute some of that to the ball, Alonso's power is still among the most elite in the game. Is he going to give you a lot of home runs and RBIs but not much elsewhere? Yeah, probably, but here's the thing with the argument that he's going to give you stats that are easy to find elsewhere - you need even more to win those categories now. If everyone is hitting bombs, get the guy who can out-homer them - especially at a top-heavy position like first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 It was just an 87 game sample size but in that time, Yordan was clearly one of the top five hitters in baseball. He won't steal any bags, but 50 homers, 140 RBIs and a .320 batting average is within the realm of realistic possibilities. He comes with some risk, however, since we haven't seen it for an extended time.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It feels odd that a rookie can hit 53 homers with 120 RBIs then end up draft towards the end of the third round but that's exactly what we have here. 60 homrs is a real possibility but then again, so are 35 homers with a .235 batting average, similar to the disappointment fantasy owners had with Hoskins last season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Yordan is getting the sophomore discount, meaning you don't have to pay up to get top five player potential. If all goes well, Alvarez will be a monster in all areas except SBs. Perfect third round pick if looking for upside and power. Hits the ball ridiculously hard.
