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
Marcus Semien is one of the most polarizing figures in fantasy this year. He had an MVP-type season last season - not saying that lightly at all - and there's not much in the peripherals that scream regression is coming, but he is a 29-year-old who had a breakout season by all accounts. Prior to 2019, he was the definition of a replacement-level fantasy option. There should always be trepidation with those types of breakouts.
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
Semien is currently being drafted outside the top 12 fantasy shortstops around the 7th round but did you know that he finished among the top five last year and ahead of Lindor, Turner and Torres. Semien knocked 33 bombs with double-digit steals, a good .285 batting average and 123 runs.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
Always tough to invest in a mid-career breakout. Semien finished third in the AL MVP voting last year
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 A boring but safe fantasy option in a loaded lineup. 30 homers, 100 RBI, and a .280 average are fair expectations
