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
Marcus Semien is one of the most polarizing figures in fantasy this year. He had an MVP-type season last season - not saying that lightly at all - and there's not much in the peripherals that scream regression is coming, but he is a 29-year-old who had a breakout season by all accounts. Prior to 2019, he was the definition of a replacement-level fantasy option. There should always be trepidation with those types of breakouts.
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
Semien is currently being drafted outside the top 12 fantasy shortstops around the 7th round but did you know that he finished among the top five last year and ahead of Lindor, Turner and Torres. Semien knocked 33 bombs with double-digit steals, a good .285 batting average and 123 runs.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Super reliable option with a now improved lineup. Very safe and consistent pick at ADP.
