Notes 
 30 home runs (in a 162 season adjusted for the 60 game sprint) is a LOCK for a guy that gets no respect AND qualifies at SS. I don't know what he has to do to get his respects but he has mine. I just wish he stole 20 bases so I could put him in the Top 10.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
If you checked out early for fantasy football, you may have missed how Eloy Jimenez finished the season. He hit .325 with 12 home runs and a near 1.000 OPS in his final 40 games of the year. It gives renewed optimism for those invested in Jimenez after he had a solid - not great - rookie campaign, though injuries cut short a mid-season hot streak. It's smart to bet on a pedigree with prospects like Jimenez and Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. When you see a long stretch of success, it gives you a reason to push them up and remain optimistic in their present and future value.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 You can't bank on the steals from Manny Machado anymore, and it's too hard to consider him an elite fantasy player after his well-known struggles out of Camden Yards. But you aren't paying for elite production here - you're paying for a bounce-back candidate who can give you first- to second-round production. The pressure is on the Padres' front office to win, so Machado is going to be surrounded by an even better offense in his second year in San Diego. Machado's 2019 was split into three good months and three really bad months. Bet on the talent in these situations ... at least for one more year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Hit .308 with a .917 OPS over the final two months of rookie season
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 One of my favorite picks at ADP this season (also one of my highest owned players). Has played the most games of all players over the last five years so there is zero injury concern. He is a lock for 30+ HRs, his average should revert back to near his career avg (.279), and should be able to let loose a bit more after pressing a bit his first season in SD. Sign me up.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Willing to invest on a premium talent at a much lower cost than a season ago. Worth noting he hasn't been the same hitter outside of Camden Yards, however
