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
Mercado is a popular breakout pick, and even in a shortened season, he offers 12/12 potential.
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
Mercado impressed as a rookie, hitting 15 homers, stealing 15 bags and scoring 70 runs in just 115 games. His production slowed at the end of the year, though, and the overall batting average will likely dip so don't expect the same useful pace for all of 2020.
