Notes 
 Bregman's multi-position eligibility makes him an attractive target in the second round, and he is a first-round pick in points leagues. You shouldn't expect 41 homers again from him, as his home ballpark aided him in reaching those numbers with his launch angle. Ten homers is achievable for Bregman, and he offers all-around production that makes him worthy of a selection here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
By this point, we all know the answer to the Mike Trout vs. Harper discussion, but that doesn't mean that Harper still isn't one hell of a player. Was he pressing early in Philadelphia with the pressure of a new contract in a new city? I think he was, as his second-half numbers show quite the turnaround, especially with his strikeout rate. His xBA and xwOBA also indicate that Harper underperformed last season. It should surprise no one if Harper were to contend for an MVP this season. He should be bumped up higher in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Thanks to his 122 runs and 41 homers, Bregman outperformed Story, Turner and Lindor last year so you might consider him at #6 overall once Bellinger is gone but his lack of steals makes his ceiling a bit lower than each of those other first rounders.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Unlike Aaron Judge, who is also going at the end of the second round, Harper has only missed 8 games in the last two seasons. He might not have as much power or the reliable batting average, but there is something to be said for health and the extra 10 steals.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Advanced analytics say last season's power was a mirage. On top of that, the ball may be dejuiced, he won't be cheating anymore, and will likely lead the league in HBPs. Going to pass at current ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Harper is almost a lock for 30 home runs and double-digit steals. He hasn't been Mike Trout's equal, as many expected after the High School SI cover, but that doesn't mean he isn't an elite Fantasy player. His ADP doesn't reflect how high his floor is or the potential for a 40/20 season. 2020 is a big year for Harper in the Philly Band Box.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 SBs have decreased 17-10-5 over last 3 seasons
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Not a big fan of Harper (He is overrated), but he does have some big time potential going into his second year in Philly. If he gets his average up to 280+ he should be a high end five category contributor.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Lots of encouraging Statcast data suggesting he has room for growth in year two of Phillies tenure
