I've got Marisnick ranked a bit higher in general and his speed is more of an asset in roto.

Oscar Taveras. He absolutely destroyed A-ball as a 19 year old. There's a lot of risk associated with him, as there is with any young player who hasn't faced higher levels of competition, but everything I've seen/read tells me his ability to square up the ball is uncanny. Marisnick is probably a safer bet to be an MLB contributor, but Taveras is the more exciting, and if you're not prospecting to dream on superstars, what are you doing it for?

Have to agree about Taveras. He has the most upside and the guy I would more likely take a risk on.
