Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Fluke. That's the best word to use to describe Anderson's 2019 season. Now, do I think he'll be bad in 2020? No, I don't. But, there's no chance Anderson leads the league in batting average again. Anderson is a career .276 hitter, and he hit .335 last year. If you look at his xBA, though, it was .294, making his gap between his expected average and actual average the fourth-largest in baseball. To be fair, .294 is one hell of a mark, but looking around .270-.280 is more realistic for Anderson. He'll be leading off for a great lineup, so his runs should be high, but looking at his exit velocity (36th percentile) and hard hit rate (39th percentile), we should temper expectations of a 20-homer season. It hurts Anderson that he plays shortstop, which along with third base, is the deepest position in fantasy this year. He's an easy fade this year given the other options at the position.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 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
Anderson missed 40 games last year but still nearly went 20/20 with 81 runs. If that was all, it would have been a killer season but he also happened to bat .335 for the Sox. We can expect that to drop to near or even below .300 this year but that is still a great buy around the 8th round.
Bobby Sylvester - 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.
