Notes 
 It's refershing to see Michael Brantley go inside the top 100 in ADP here, as he's shown that he can be healthy over the past two years. With pitchers getting pushed up in the early rounds, there are good hitters who you can take at an enormous value, and they don't get more valuable than Brantley, who will help you in four of the five categories. However, it shouldn't surprise you if he gave you double-digit steals, either. He's an OF2 that can be had for the price of an OF3 or OF4.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If you're the type of fantasy player who likes to buy low on players off a down year, then Andrew Benintendi is the type of guy that you want to target. He was, after all, going in the late third to early fourth round of drafts in 2019, and he has the pedigree of a top prospect that you want. Is he going to become the second coming of Christian Yelich? Yeah, that's unlikely, but he's still in a good lineup (even without Mookie Betts), and he'll contribute everywhere but home runs. And even then, he still isn't a zero there.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Brantley had injury troubles for a while but has now played virtually every day for two straight years. In that time, he has returned to the steal .310 hitter with 20 homers. Although the steals are long gone, that profile still works great with a tenth-round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Benintendi had a disappointing offensive season in 2019, hitting just 13 homers with 10 steals and a .266 batting average. There is upside, sure, but if he repeats that production, he is barely worth drafting, let alone all the way up in the top 100 picks where his ADP currently is.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Didn't run at all in 2019 but provides a safe floor everywhere else
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
There is really no reason not to buy Benintendi at his current ADP. He will get you HRs and SBs with a decent average, and a solid amount of runs and RBIs. I am quite certain 2019 will be his low point, not his norm.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Has produced a below average 99 wRC+ since the 2018 All-Star break
