Notes 
 Lux would be a Top 75 player if we knew for sure that the Dodgers would give him everyday at-bats. He's a star in the making.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's hard to trust a Ray who isn't named Meadows, but the Rays seem intent to make Lowe their everyday second baseman this year. He has added value in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 There is a chance Lux is dealt to Boston but it seems most likely that he'll stay. If he does, the most likely fantasy outcome is a Daniel Murphy-lite from day one but with upside for more. He hit .347 with 26 homers last year in just 113 minor league games.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Lowe didn't have a high prospect pedigree nor did he perform in his rookie debut but he blew up last year for the Rays, hitting 17 homers and driving in 51 runs in just 296 at-bats. Don't be surprised if that grows to 25 and 10 with a solid batting average over a full year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Wild card who is likely to start the year near the bottom of the lineup and will likely sit against lefties more often than not. A decent gamble as he has a chance to play his way into a bigger role, but could be a long season if he struggles out of the gate.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
If Lowe stays healthy and builds off his 2019, he has a shot to drastically outplay his ADP. There are significant question marks, however, as he has injury concerns and struck out in 34% of his at bats.
