-I always subscribe to the strategy of making sure you get a top tier fantasy baseball first baseman by the end of Round 3 at the lastest and more ideally at the end of Round 2.  That means I want to have one from the following:  Goldy, Rizzo, Votto, Abreu, Hosmer, Freeman, Bellinger.  Once that is accomplished, I suggest coming back here for your UTIL or CI with someone like Greg Bird, Josh Bell, Justin Smoak.
-Beginning with Kendrys Morales at number 17 to Hanley Ramirez at 24, you are looking at a bunch of interchangeable and boring veteran first baseman who are all similar in value/skill.  Your best bet is to go with the cheapest one out of the bunch if you wish to go there.
-Watch where Eric Hosmer signs in the offseason.  Rumors continue to swirl he is going to San Diego which could take a few homers away from his ledger but Kansas City was no picnic for a hitter either so don't go overboard there.  Hosmer's 2017 shows he is certainly the real deal in terms of talent and ability to be a star.
