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
Prior to 2019, Josh Bell's career mimicked that of James Loney, as he was a big first baseman who hit the ball on the ground ... a lot. That's why his 2019 season caught some by surprise because he continued to hit the ball hard, but hew as elevating it now to the tune of 37 home runs. Is it a pop-up year? Well, his numbers declined in the second half of the season, but you could make the argument that they really just leveled off, as is the case when most players put up huge numbers that they typically don't in the first half of the season (a la the home run derby "curse"). Bell has the pedigree - and now the peripherals - to back up the breakout season. At a shallow position, buy-in.
Michael Waterloo - 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
Bell had a true breakout season in 2019, improving drastically in pretty much every measurable category. His increases in exit velocity (2.3 mph), launch angle (3.8 degrees), and barrels per plate appearance (3.8%) showed that his gains were not fluky, and he even recovered from what looked to be a second-half collapse with a .927 OPS in August. The issue for Bell is that even with the improvements, a first baseman who bats .277 and slugs 37 home runs is not blowing the fantasy world away. Buy many of the gains, but don't go crazy on draft day.
Dan Harris - 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
Bell slowed down a ton after the break but was so terrific to start the season that he still finished with 37 homers, 116 RBIs and a .277 batting average. There is potential for more, but considering how he ended the year, perhaps a little risk as well for the price tag.
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
Stopped being fed first pitch fastballs in the second half. He'll need to show he can adjust back to the league
