Notes 
 In OBP leagues, you can make the case for Soto to be the third player off the board, as his plate discipline may just be the best in the league. He's only going to get better, too, as there's more room for power growth in his game. His plate discipline gives him a safe floor moving forward, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
A really good slugger who appears to be rated higher because of his plus defense even though it isn't a category in leagues. Lack of stolen bases knocks him down a peg for me.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 It seemed impossible that Soto could be even better than his rookie year but that is just what we got with 34 homers, 110 RBIs, 110 runs and a .282 batting average to go with 12 steals. Considering how young he is, we may see even more in 2020 which would make his second round ADP a steal.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
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
 I have some concerns that the stolen bases aren't going to develop like his offensive potential has and will continue to. He has Top 5 potential if he can become a 15-20 Stolen Base guy on top of his immense upside with the bat. He would rank higher if I felt more optimistic about the SBs.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
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
 Could be a top-3 pick in 2021 fantasy drafts. ADP for his season is banking on him taking that step forward, however
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
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.

  SBs have decreased 17-10-5 over last 3 seasons
