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
We know that lineup protection doesn't actually exist, but leaving Comerica Park for Wrigley Field finally allowed Nick Castellanos to produce like the player we had hoped to see for years. Now, in Cincinnati, Castellanos goes to an even better ballpark, where he should be among the league leaders in doubles. The Cincy outfield is crowded, but Castellanos is locked into an everyday role. Draft him with confidence this year.
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
Castellanos' numbers were continually deflated batting in the middle of a bad Tigers lineup and in a home park that greatly depressed power numbers. A move to Cincinnati should be just what the doctor ordered, and allow Castellanos to continue to build on his monster finish with the Cubs last year. While he may not hit the 50 homers he was on pace for with the Cubs or total the same 1.000 OPS, his numbers should look much closer to his 2019 second half than his first.
Dan Harris - 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
Castellanos hit 25+ homers with a .290 BA again last season, and this year he'll get a sizeable ballpark factor upgrade so those numbers could both take another jump. No, he won't steal bases, but he is durable so you can bet the runs and RBIs will total 160+ for the fourth straight season.
