Notes 
 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
Pederson is fine, but he loses value as a platoon bat in a short season.
Michael Waterloo - 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
Joc has always had power but last year he kicked it up a notch, reaching 36 bombs in just 450 at-bats. He is one to monitor in the upcoming weeks as his playing time could spike if the Dodgers deal him to Boston in the possible Mookie Betts deal.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 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.
