Francisco Lindor is projected as a top 25 pick this year in most fantasy drafts and it makes no sense to me. When drafting someone in the top 25 overall, they need to be elite in at least one category. He will give you a solid batting average, score plenty of runs and can steal 20 bases, but is that worth a top pick for?
Lindor is being drafted ahead of players with a lot more upside and talent such as Giancarlo Stanton, Daniel Murphy and Yoenis Cespedes. Don’t fall into the trap of drafting Lindor this year. Wait a little longer on shortstop and draft a player who can give you better overall numbers. I would draft other shortstops like Carlos Correa, Jonathan Villar and Trevor Story who are going in the same round or multiple rounds later.
