Notes 
  Dodgers manager Dave Roberts revealed on Friday, April 16th that a recent scan of Bellinger's leg revealed a hairline fracture. The 25-year-old was originally diagnosed with a calf contusion, which means this is going to be a longer absence than fantasy managers were initially expecting. As a result, I'm bumping him down towards the top-50 of my overall rankings until we get more information.
