Notes 
 Newman played well in his first taste of big-league action, but he's already 26 years old, so the ceiling is limited.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I want Hampson to be higher. I need Hampson to be higher. I just don't trust the Rockies, even after his great September.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 A leadoff hitter who bat .308 last year with 12 home runs and 16 steals in just 130 games? What's not to like? Fine, he is one of the worst in the league in terms of barrel percentage and hard hit rate but even still, he had an expected batting average of .291 last year. Newman won't blow you away, but he'll chip in everywhere, especially the scarce categories. Don't forget about him on draft day.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Hampson was everyone's favorite late-round sleeper last year but the Rockies fiddled around with their lineup and he was only given 299 at-bats. In that time, he showed some power and great speed, but that batting average struggled. Unless they trade Arenado, he might struggle for playing time again.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Newman was expected to hit for average with 15-20 steals but just because he accomplished it as a rookie doesn't mean we can quite expect that performance in 2020. Rather, his MLB season was actually better than anything he ever did in the minors.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 
 Had a tremendous rookie season. Hard to gauge whether it is repeatable as it was better than his stops in the minors. Luckily, you don't have to pay a high price to find out.
