Notes 
 Freeman gets a boost in points leagues, but, he's a safe bet for production in the second round. Freeman allows you to lock up your first baseman and not have to worry about playing catch up there later in the draft. The only knock with taking Freeman is that you miss out on the power-speed threats and the top pitchers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
This is why you don't give up on a player - and why you should bet on track record. After Devers' disappointing sophomore campaign, the price sunk on him in 2019 drafts. He responded to the tune of .311/.361/.555 with 32 home runs, 129 runs, 115 RBIs, and eight steals.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There's no reason to doubt Freeman's outstanding performance when healthy, but the fact that he's already dealing with elbow soreness after purportedly fighting through it last year is a bit discouraging. Unless Freeman's injury lingers deep into the spring, don't knock him too much, as his combination of batting average, power, and overall safety is rare. But for now, it's worth dropping him closer to the back end of the second round than the front.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Believe it or not, Devers managed to finish at the number one fantasy third basemen last year over Rendon, Arenado and Bregman. Batting in the middle of Boston's great lineup afforded him 129 runs and 115 RBIs which went a long way, but he contributed in all five categories and is young enough that he might do even better in 2020.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Freeman might not be the most exciting second round pick, but the floor over the past four years has been a .300 hitter with 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and 25 homers. Last season he was at 113 runs, 38 HRs and 121 RBIs so it isn't like his ceiling is too bad either.
