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
The speed returned after disappearing for a year. He's 31 now, though, so expect a dropoff from the 31 steals from last year.
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
With so many competent fantasy shortstops, it may seem boring to draft Andrus in the 13th round but he has been so consistent and durable from year to year that this boring source of speed and average may prove well worth the price once again.
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.
