 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
Mike Moustakas is the poster child for betting on yourself, as he's done so in back-to-back seasons. Now he's in Cincinnati, which we know is a great hitter's venue, so he won't experience any drop-off from leaving Milwaukee. What's more, Moustakas is playing second base, which makes him even more valuable than if he only had third base eligibility like in years past. The power is real, and so is this value for Moose in drafts.
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
Moustakas is a virtual lock to hit 30+ homers with 80+ RBIs but he doesn't steal any bags and with the power will likely come a sub-optimal batting average. You could do worse in the 9th round, however, because at the very least, he is a reliable three-category contributor.
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.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Consistent 30 home run seasons eligible at 2B and 3B in an upgraded CIncy lineup. The Moose is loose and I am owning many many shares.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
  Perennially underrated. In a great hitters park he should reach 30+ homers again.
