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
DeJong was a bit of a mirage in the first few months of the season, as he looked liked he found out how to strikeout less and make better contact. He's still a fine option, but better as a middle infielder.
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
Although DeJong hit so poorly at the end of the season, he has no chance of losing playing time because he is so great in the field. Even with his rough stretch to close things, DeJong finished with 30 homers and 97 runs. He is expected to do much of the same this year.
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.
