Notes 
 Lindor is the definition of a safe player, which is great at this point in the draft. There were concerns he wouldn't run much in 2019 with his Spring Training calf injury, but he still stole 22 bases. He's an elite-contact bat, who should post double-digit steals and homers in the shortened season.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Bregman's multi-position eligibility makes him an attractive target in the second round, and he is a first-round pick in points leagues. You shouldn't expect 41 homers again from him, as his home ballpark aided him in reaching those numbers with his launch angle. Ten homers is achievable for Bregman, and he offers all-around production that makes him worthy of a selection here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Lindor's 2019 season got off to a rocky start with a right calf strain in February followed by a sprained left ankle in March. But when he returned in late April, he didn't miss a beat, putting up a classic 30-20 season and contributing in all five categories. There were some minor negatives for Lindor - his strikeout rate went up, his walk rate went down, and he had an expected batting average of just .276, the lowest of his career. But Lindor's floor at this point is so enormously high that he's one of the few no-risk players, and he shouldn't slip past the top 10 in drafts or, frankly, the top seven.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Thanks to his 122 runs and 41 homers, Bregman outperformed Story, Turner and Lindor last year so you might consider him at #6 overall once Bellinger is gone but his lack of steals makes his ceiling a bit lower than each of those other first rounders.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Even despite missing the first month, Lindor went for 32 homers, 22 steals and 101 runs. He has been steady for three seasons and could very easily take another leap into the top tier of fantasy assets this year but he'll need that batting average to leap in order to get there.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Advanced analytics say last season's power was a mirage. On top of that, the ball may be dejuiced, he won't be cheating anymore, and will likely lead the league in HBPs. Going to pass at current ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 Betts and Lindor should be statistical equals, so I'll take the shortstop over the outfielder.
