Notes 
 Joey Gallo, even if he feels that the Rangers' new stadium will be a pitcher's park, still has to be one of the betting favorites every year to lead the league in home runs. The multi-position eligibility that Gallo brings makes him even more valuable, but beware that he will drain your batting average quite a bit. If he can hit around .260, he's going to be a really valuable asset. In OBP leagues, he's a top 50 player. If you're a betting person and want a dark horse MVP candidate, Gallo is your guy.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Was it a fluke season for Jorge Soler? Possibly, but being that he cracked out nearly 50 home runs while underperforming in his expected stats leads me to say no, it wasn't. You don't love the ballpark, nor do you love the rollercoaster career that he's had thus far, so you should take a few extra seconds before deciding if you want to take the chance on Soler or not. You need more power than ever to compete, and at 78th overall, the risk is already built-in for what could be league-leading power production.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Gallo only played 70 games but still managed 22 homers, 54 runs scored and 49 RBIs. With a full season, you'd have to expect him to return to 40+ homers, but the big question is whether the batting average is worth the risk in the seventh round of drafts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Soler did swat a ridiculous 48 homers with 117 RBIs and a decent batting average last year but let's not forget that he has missed considerable time due to injury every season prior. If he can stay healthy, that eighth round ADP will be a bargain, but it's a big if.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Great mid round target for HRs if falling behind. Should be a lock for 35+, new ball or not, as he earned his HRs in 2019.
