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
We know that lineup protection doesn't actually exist, but leaving Comerica Park for Wrigley Field finally allowed Nick Castellanos to produce like the player we had hoped to see for years. Now, in Cincinnati, Castellanos goes to an even better ballpark, where he should be among the league leaders in doubles. The Cincy outfield is crowded, but Castellanos is locked into an everyday role. Draft him with confidence this year.
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
Castellanos' numbers were continually deflated batting in the middle of a bad Tigers lineup and in a home park that greatly depressed power numbers. A move to Cincinnati should be just what the doctor ordered, and allow Castellanos to continue to build on his monster finish with the Cubs last year. While he may not hit the 50 homers he was on pace for with the Cubs or total the same 1.000 OPS, his numbers should look much closer to his 2019 second half than his first.
Dan Harris - 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
Castellanos hit 25+ homers with a .290 BA again last season, and this year he'll get a sizeable ballpark factor upgrade so those numbers could both take another jump. No, he won't steal bases, but he is durable so you can bet the runs and RBIs will total 160+ for the fourth straight season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 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.
