Notes 
 Josh Donaldson showed that he wasn't quite done yet, as he had a big prove-it year in Atlanta after missing chunks of two straight seasons in 2017 and 2018. Donaldson had his elite plate discipline and power all season, and now he enters a lineup that led baseball in home runs last year. What's not to love? Well, we can't really ignore that he missed those two large chunks because of injury, especially with a 34-year-old. Between the chance of injuries popping up again and just really an overall decline in the skill set due to his age, there are yellow - not red - flags when considering Donaldson.
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
 Donaldson played it right, betting on himself with a one-year deal and turning in a patented monstrous power season with the Braves. He'll now move on to the Twins where you can expect more of the same. Not only do the Twins boast one of the best all-around lineups in baseball, but park factors actually favor Target Field over Truist Park for home runs and doubles. Expect a repeat of 2019, with perhaps a little more.
Dan Harris - 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
 Yes, Donaldson hit 37 homers last year with 90+ runs and 90+ RBIs but this is a player who missed 160 games over the prior two seasons and won't offer average or steals to counteract the injury risk. With that said, his upside looks nice in the 9th round.
