Notes 
 deGrom has been awesome, but 2020 is the year he regresses. If Scherzer wasn't showing signs of decline I would have him higher than the two-time Cy Young from NY, I value pitching more in the 60 game sprint than normal years, but I can't move deGrom up when I feel regression is on the way in 2020.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
A really good slugger who appears to be rated higher because of his plus defense even though it isn't a category in leagues. Lack of stolen bases knocks him down a peg for me.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 In points leagues, you can make the case for deGrom first overall. In roto leagues, you can still make the case for him or Gerrit Cole earlier than here, but the name of the game this year is volume, and as great as deGrom is, you're looking at 13 starts or so max from him. Still, he's the best pitcher in the game, and if you want a leg-up on the rest of the league, this is a good spot to grab him.
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
 After winning his second consecutive Cy Young Award, deGrom has an obvious case to be the top pitcher taken in the game. Back-to-back season with a sub-2.50 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP with at least 200 strikeouts makes deGrom perhaps the safest pitcher in the game, especially after three straight seasons of at least 200 innings pitched. The bugaboo for deGrom is his lack of wins - just 21 over the last two seasons despite historic numbers. But with the improved Mets bullpen, there's every reason to think deGrom can get back to the 15-win total he put up in 2017. It's him or Gerrit Cole for the top pitcher off the board and you can't go wrong.
Dan Harris - 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
 His age and lack of injury history might make him a safer bet than Verlander/Scherzer
