Notes 
 Maybe it's the age, but I'm blaming his 2019 on injuries. He was just too good in 2018 not to give him a second chance this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If anyone can shine in 60 games, it's Byron Buxton, right? Well, only to disappoint us in 2021.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 If you get into the 14th round and need either steals or batting average, Cain will make for an excellent investment. He should again steal 15-20 bags and you can expect the batting average to jump back up closer to that .300 mark he sat at for 4 of the past 6 seasons.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Buxton has never managed to stay healthy for a full season but while he is healthy, fantasy owners get a source of power and great speed. Should he finally stay on the field all year, fantasy owners could receive 20 homers, 25 steals and a decent batting average out of the 14th round.
