Notes 
 How should you approach Giancarlo Stanton in the draft? Look, there's no denying his talent, but has any player snake-bitten fantasy managers as often as Stanton has? He's worth the gamble here, but you're still in the early part of your draft where you're building your foundation. You don't want your foundation to come with built-in cracks.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Marcell Ozuna bet on himself with a one-year contract in Atlanta, and as a fantasy. manager, you should, too. Ozuna was the poster boy for being unlucky in 2019, especially with his BABIP driving down his average. His batted ball data was still fantastic, and he offered double-digit steals, surprisingly. If Ozuna repeats his batted-ball numbers, he'll no longer need to bet on himself with a one-year deal, and you'll see his price surge in 2021 drafts."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Stanton's Grade-1 hamstring strain was going to keep him out of action for Opening Day, but he now should be ready to go whenever the season begins. Stanton will always be an injury risk, but for now, view him as a healthy option heading into the season. His power potential therefore makes him an option in Round 3 or 4, depending on your risk tolerance.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Ozuna didn't have a terrible 2019, but his .241 batting average and injuries certainly put a damper on his year. And although he was due for a rebound anyway (his .259 BABIP was preposterously low), moving to the Braves on a one-year deal should be just what the doctor ordered. Not only will he be batting in the middle of an incredible strong lineup. but he'll also be playing in a much more favorable home park. With plenty of motivation as he looks for a multi-year deal, expect a big season from Ozuna.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Stanton missed virtually the entire season but let's not forget that he only missed 7 games in the prior two years and combined for 97 homers, 232 RBIs and 225 runs scored. Don't be mistaken, this is still one of the best hitters in baseball. With that said, he is already dealing with another injury.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Ozuna had a down year thanks to some injuries he played through, but this is still a bat that should hit 35 homers with 100 RBIs in Atlanta's lineup if he can stay healthy throughout the year. In fact, last year he even stole a dozen bases despite missing 30 games.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  A steal at current ADP. He hits the ball ridiculously hard and is entering a stacked lineup. Not to mention the handful of SBs he'll get for you. Sign me up.
