Notes 
 It's hard to trust a Ray who isn't named Meadows, but the Rays seem intent to make Lowe their everyday second baseman this year. He has added value in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
The Rockies are still going to find a way to screw up either Ryan McMahon or Garrett Hampson even with the DH. If Daniel Murphy can DH, then McMahon should see everyday playing time.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Lowe didn't have a high prospect pedigree nor did he perform in his rookie debut but he blew up last year for the Rays, hitting 17 homers and driving in 51 runs in just 296 at-bats. Don't be surprised if that grows to 25 and 10 with a solid batting average over a full year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
McMahon didn't play every day as some expected but he still managed 24 homers. With more playing time this year, that could spike to 30+ and his .250 BA is likely to improve as well considering his aptitude in that department throughout the minors.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 If Lowe stays healthy and builds off his 2019, he has a shot to drastically outplay his ADP. There are significant question marks, however, as he has injury concerns and struck out in 34% of his at bats.
