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
With the three positions he plays, it's worth wondering why Max Muncy isn't going even earlier? Sure, he's a late-career breakout, but he repeated his 2018 success in 2019, and the Dodgers are going to have him locked into their everyday lineup. In OBP leagues, he's more valuable, as his average leaves much to be desired, but even if he repeats his 2018 and 2019 numbers again in 2020, he's worth the cost.
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
Muncy now has 70 homers over the last two seasons and while fantasy owners know he won't be a source of help in the batting average department, he still managed 100+ runs because of the 90 walks. Multi-position eligibility certainly doesn't hurt either.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Super reliable option with a now improved lineup. Very safe and consistent pick at ADP.
