Notes 
 Marcell Ozuna bet on himself with a one-year contract in Atlanta, and as a fantasy. manager, you should, too. Ozuna was the poster boy for being unlucky in 2019, especially with his BABIP driving down his average. His batted ball data was still fantastic, and he offered double-digit steals, surprisingly. If Ozuna repeats his batted-ball numbers, he'll no longer need to bet on himself with a one-year deal, and you'll see his price surge in 2021 drafts."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Was it a fluke season for Jorge Soler? Possibly, but being that he cracked out nearly 50 home runs while underperforming in his expected stats leads me to say no, it wasn't. You don't love the ballpark, nor do you love the rollercoaster career that he's had thus far, so you should take a few extra seconds before deciding if you want to take the chance on Soler or not. You need more power than ever to compete, and at 78th overall, the risk is already built-in for what could be league-leading power production.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Ozuna didn't have a terrible 2019, but his .241 batting average and injuries certainly put a damper on his year. And although he was due for a rebound anyway (his .259 BABIP was preposterously low), moving to the Braves on a one-year deal should be just what the doctor ordered. Not only will he be batting in the middle of an incredible strong lineup. but he'll also be playing in a much more favorable home park. With plenty of motivation as he looks for a multi-year deal, expect a big season from Ozuna.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Soler did swat a ridiculous 48 homers with 117 RBIs and a decent batting average last year but let's not forget that he has missed considerable time due to injury every season prior. If he can stay healthy, that eighth round ADP will be a bargain, but it's a big if.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Ozuna had a down year thanks to some injuries he played through, but this is still a bat that should hit 35 homers with 100 RBIs in Atlanta's lineup if he can stay healthy throughout the year. In fact, last year he even stole a dozen bases despite missing 30 games.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Great mid round target for HRs if falling behind. Should be a lock for 35+, new ball or not, as he earned his HRs in 2019.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 A steal at current ADP. He hits the ball ridiculously hard and is entering a stacked lineup. Not to mention the handful of SBs he'll get for you. Sign me up.
