Notes 
 The outlook is still bright for Kingery in a dynasty league, and his multi-positional eligibility helps him this year, too. The jury is out on exactly what he'll become, but he showed signs down the stretch last year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 Kingery slowed down after his blazing start but still finished with 19 homers and 15 steals in just 126 games. With a full season likely ahead of him and multi-position eligibility, this may end up being one of the steals of the draft when he goes 25/20 with a .260 average.
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
  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.
