Notes 
 He's no longer Ground Chuck, as the Astros and Rays were able to tap into the electric stuff that Morton has. It's hard to argue with the success that he's had over the past few seasons, but what hurts Morton - and fantasy managers - is that the breakout came late in his career. He's 35, and he said he "fully expects" to hang up his cleats at the end of his current contract. If he's the same pitcher as he has been the past few years, you're getting a steal here. But age and durability concerns have to be on your mind if you draft him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Keston Hiura was my favorite player to go after in 2018 first-year player drafts who wasn't named Shohei Ohtani. Yes, more than Luis Robert. I compared him at the time to prime Dustin Pedroia but with more power. Hiura's early returns were better than I had imagined. He's in the perfect ballpark, and he's at the shallowest position outside of catcher to justify this ranking - even with the high strikeout marks. Hiura is going to be a top-three second baseman in fantasy for the next decade."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Morton only got better after leaving the Astros, setting career bests in innings pitched, ERA, WHIP, and strikeout percentage. Batters simply don't hit his curveball, which he throws more than a third of the time, and his fastball is nearly equally as effective. In a dynasty or keeper format, things may be different, as Morton speaks of retirement often. For this year, however, there is zero reason for concern.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Keston Hiura is one of my most owned players and one of my favorite picks at ADP this season. You are getting what I call the "Sophomore Discount," which is when rookies blow up on to the scene and people are hesitant to fully buy into it. Hiura is a pure hitter, hits the ball ridiculously hard, and will bat in the heart of a solid lineup. Sign me up as he has clear 30/15 upside and room for more.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 Had the best season of his career in 2019. If he comes close to matching it his ADP will make him a big-time value
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Love the player but the price is aggressive. Could be a 30/20 asset with a .300 average if everything breaks right. Could also have a sophomore slump
