Notes 
 Shiny new toy syndrome is one hell of a drug. There's no doubting Luis Robert's potential, and quite honestly, it's surprising that he isn't going higher with his ADP. We typically set the bar too high for rookies, and when you draft Robert, it's all about expectation. If you're expecting a superstar out of the gate, you'll probably be disappointed. If you are OK with a hybrid of Victor Robles and Yasiel Puig from 2019, you should be happy with drafting Robert here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Can Conforto hit lefties? That's going to continue to be the issue that lowers him in overall rankings each year, if not.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Don't look now, but Robert was better than even Fernando Tatis in the minors. Much better. He does have holes in his swing but in 200 games, has still managed to bat .312. He has future 40/40 potential and could be a superstar even as a rookie this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It is clear at this point that Conforto won't be a source of useful batting average or steals, but he crushes in the other three categories, hitting 33 homers with 90+ RBIs and runs scored last season. That is a quality stat-line around round nine.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 ADP is probably too aggressive. Will likely hit in the bottom of the order to start the season.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
30 homers with a decent batting average and on-base skills isn't as special as it used to be
