2019 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: CODY BELLINGER 1B/OF LOS ANGELES DODGERS

While the Washington Nationals' Anthony Rendon may have something to say about it, Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger is already making himself the front-runner for not only real game MVP but also fantasy baseball MVP after the23-year-old swatted his 9th home run in just 71 at-bats Saturday night to help raise his average to a scorching .422.  While we already have seen a monster campaign from Bellinger back in 2017 when he came up as a rookie to swat 39 home runs and drive in 97, a bit of a sophomore slump in 2018 when those numbers dropped to 25/76 dulled some of the enthusiasm for the kid.  If you were a smart fantasy baseball player however, you would have known some giveback with the numbers was on the way last season since opposing pitchers would adjust but that also the talent was undeniable to hold Bellinger down long.  Enter into present day and Bellinger has been hitting everything right on the nose so far with his 9 home runs and 22 RBI and he also has added 2 steals to continue to contribute in that category.  Combined together, Bellinger is a five-tool superstar slugger who qualifies both at first base and the outfield to help separate himself from most of the rest of baseball in terms of value.  Even better, Bellinger's K/9 of just 11.3 is miles down from the 26.5 and 23.9 marks his first two years in the game and it shows the rapid maturity in his approach.  So when you factor in Bellinger is only still just 23, the ceiling is frighteningly immense as the numbers should enter into the ridiculous mode this season.
