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
We know by now that Odor is going to kill us in the batting average department but he once again swatted 30 homers with 93 RBIs and double-digit steals. You'll either need to target BA early or just punt the category altogether, but Odor is great for the other four categories.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
The power/speed combo continues to be enticing, but his job seems to be in jeopardy and a 205 average is abysmal. Pairing him with a guy like Mcneil may help if you do decide to take the Odor dive again.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 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.
