Notes 
 J.D. Martinez was a first-round player in drafts last year, but as is the case with fantasy managers, there's a quick overreaction to a "down" year, which is why we see Martinez fall to the second round this year. Targeting bounce-back players at a value is vital to winning fantasy leagues. Martinez can give you first-round value, despite not having the steals or Mookie Betts in the lineup.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
8 SBs in 2019 were a surprise. Don't expect it or even considerate them for 2020 in only 60 games. He may have another gear after 30+ in 2019, that's an impressive piece of machinery if he gets there.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Seems to be overlooked every season. High end contributor in every category except SBs. Super solid 2nd round pick.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
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
 A safe, four-category stud that might be going at a slight discount
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Hit .311 with 32 homers, 115 RBI, 129 runs scored, and even eight steals as a 22-year-old in 2019
