Notes 
 People are down on Polanco after the season he had last year, and it doesn't really make much sense. The only argument against him is the deep position, but you're getting a guy hitting in the heart of a loaded lineup. What's not to like?
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Rosario still has another level he can reach in a full season, but as of now, he's a safe bet to go 10/10.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Polanco picked up where he left off after the 2018 suspension by batting nearly .300 with over 100 runs and 22 homers. His speed is gone but for his 11th round price tag, that is a plenty useful stat line even if you have to use him in the utility spot instead of shortstop.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Rosario is still young enough that he may still improve upon his 15 homers, 19 steals and .287 batting average that fantasy owners received from him last year. His ceiling is nowhere near some of the top shortstops, but he will contribute in all five categories.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Great late option if you are looking to boost your average. Does a little bit of everything, so he won't hurt you.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Love me some Amed Rosario as a late round option. Has improved across the board every season he has been in the majors, and he really took a step up the second half of 2019. There is real breakout potential here for the former #1 prospect and a 20/20 season or better is certainly plausible .
