Notes 
 All it takes for Eddie Rosario to be a better fantasy player is for him to learn how to take a walk. He now has three seasons out of five with a walk rate of 3.7 or lower. If he could get that up to 8 percent, you're looking at a top 45 pick. As it is, he's a guy who is going to help you in home runs, RBIs, and be fine at batting average. That player is also known as nearly every other player in fantasy.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Gallo reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, but the accuracy of his tests have been questioned. Regardless, Gallo is back in camp with his teammates and should have no restrictions going forward.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Even despite missing 25 games, Rosario still drove in 109 runs thanks to 32 homers. With a full season and his steady .280 batting average, drafting him at his eighth-round ADP is pure thievery. He won't steal any bags but there is certainly something to be said for his consistent bat.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Joey Gallo, even if he feels that the Rangers' new stadium will be a pitcher's park, still has to be one of the betting favorites every year to lead the league in home runs. The multi-position eligibility that Gallo brings makes him even more valuable, but beware that he will drain your batting average quite a bit. If he can hit around .260, he's going to be a really valuable asset. In OBP leagues, he's a top 50 player. If you're a betting person and want a dark horse MVP candidate, Gallo is your guy.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Perennially underrated. Grab him in the 8th, 9th or even 10th round and there is no way he ends up a losing investment.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Gallo only played 70 games but still managed 22 homers, 54 runs scored and 49 RBIs. With a full season, you'd have to expect him to return to 40+ homers, but the big question is whether the batting average is worth the risk in the seventh round of drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 A boring but safe fantasy option in a loaded lineup. 30 homers, 100 RBI, and a .280 average are fair expectations
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Such an enigma. I am fine letting someone else draft
