Notes 
 How many guesses would it take you to land on Jose Abreu as the AL leader in RBIs in 2019? He's not a sexy player, and frankly, he never has been. But he's a consistent source of RBIs and his batting average bounced back after a down year in the category in 2018. Even if he doesn't drive in 123 runs again, he's in the best lineup of his career, and he's a lock as a top 10 first baseman.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There's a fallacy out there that when players leave Coors Field, their production and subsequent fantasy value dips. DJ LeMahieu disproved that in 2019, as he had the best numbers of his career. There aren't a lot of question marks with his peripherals, but the main hesitation that fantasy managers should have with LeMahieu is that 2019 was his clear outlier. With the multi-position eligibility, he's worth grabbing at this point in hopes for a repeat or at least close to a repeat for his on-pace numbers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Abreu outperformed Anthony Rizzo and Paul Goldschmidt last season, knocking 33 homers with 122 RBIs and a solid as always .282 BA. He hasn't slowed down one bit despite the age so you can rely on him to produce once again if you grab him in the 7th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
LeMahieu may have been the most shocking breakout last year, moving from a .276 hitter with limited power at Coors to all of a sudden 26 HRs, 102 RBIs and a .327 BA away from Coors. You can expect some regression but his 2019 campaign was just too great to discount him in the 6th or 7th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Super reliable option with a now improved lineup. Very safe and consistent pick at ADP.
