1. Carlos Correa
2015 Stats (99 Games): .279 AVG/22 HR/68 RBI
2016 Steamer: .275/22 HR/83 RBI

The reigning AL Rookie of the Year will play almost all of 2016 as a 21-year-old. Correa burst onto the scene and is receiving hype similar to Mike Trout. Being young and talented is why he is here. He will produce big numbers for a shortstop in yearly leagues and be a keeper in dynasty leagues for several years. The Houston Astros will compete and put up a lot of runs. If both Jose Altuve and George Springer hit in front of him, his stat line could increase that much more. If you get lucky enough to draft Correa, congratulations; you are one step closer to a fantasy championship. All you have to do after drafting Correa is not screw it up!
