upside = puig but I would probably take Gausman because his floor is much higher. My concerns on gausman are his third pitch and pitching in the AL east. A lot of tough lineups although that might change for a couple of years.

I am faced with a similar dilema in my dynasty league. I have the 8th pick in our draft and I am trying to decide between Puig/Russell/Dahl/Almora/Gausman/Zimmer. I don't want to reach for Puig based on his spring training stats, but it's hard to argue that any of those other players should be drafted over him right now.

Out of your 3, biggest upside, Puig.

A lot of players that I like there. A month ago I would have told you to pick him after all of those players except maybe Zimmer and Almora. Zimmer tweaked his arm last year although everyone says it's not a big deal I'm concerned about KC's track record with pitching prospects. Almora seems like a nice all around player that doesn't standout in fantasy. Gausman likewise. His 3rd pitch has potential but he's going to pitch in the AL East and I could see him being very successful going 13-10 with a 4.00 ERA every season. Russell and Dahl are two guys that are flying up lists based on rk ball numbers last year. I guess I would take Puig over the 3 HS'ers because he'll be ready in 1 yr or sooner while the HS'ers will take 3-4 yrs. And Puig has the kind of upside I look for in prospects.
