Notes 
 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
Jeff McNeil feels like a late breakout player, but he just turned 28 years old. But one thing we know we need to judge players on is the entirety of their work, not just their most recent performance. With McNeil, if you look at his minor league numbers, you have to wonder if the power he showcased (23 home runs) - in a season where everyone else was hitting home runs - is for real. If it's not, he's a replaceable player, even at his premium position.
Michael Waterloo - 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
There were many skeptics after McNeil's strong rookie performance but it now clear that he is a hitter through and through. He'll again compete for the batting crown and seems likely to his 20+ homers once agin for the Mets this season.
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.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Will boost your average, will be a solid contributor elsewhere, and has position flexibility. Very solid pick at ADP.
