Trout is looking as dominant as ever, and this year he has even set a new career high in home runs.

Five months into 2019, Trout is "only" hitting .293/.437/.648 with 42 homers and 10 steals in 125 games. Some are now looking at Ronald Acuna Jr. or Christian Yelich as possible No. 1 picks next year. Because of his lofty floor, the honor should still go to the Angels superstar, who has more walks as strikeouts and leads the majors in xwOBA. He could still raise his batting average over .300, which could come with close to 50 home runs and 15 steals. Don't overthink this.

As incredible as Trout has been once again, both Yelich and Bellinger have been more useful from a fantasy perspective. It may not last much longer, but with the rate Yelich has been going for the past 120 games, it seems unlikely that Trout will catch him by season's end as the top fantasy hitter.
