Tough decision this year. Heart says Trout. Head says Yelich or Acuna.

Had I got the #1 pick, I'd take Acuna. 

 

Dude is insane.

Can’t go wrong but I’d lean Yelich.

Trout only stole 11 bases last year. If I was confident he’d get around 20 I’d take him no doubt. But Yelich and Acuna will definitely run. Such a tough call.

It depends very much on scoring.

In any head-to-head points based format it could easily be Cole/Scherzer/Verlander, or whoever you believe the top starter is.

Trout is by far the safest pick in any roto or categories format.

Acuna might have the highest upside but I think he's an injury risk.

Yelich seems like the prototypical rock solid #2 pick. I'd consider Bellinger up there too.

Dude is insane. 

And the Braves have him on what could end up being the best non rookie contract in pro sports, maybe ever.

 

But yea, Trout is the answer here.
