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
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
 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
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
 Didn't run at all in 2019 but provides a safe floor everywhere else
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
ADP is probably too aggressive. Will likely hit in the bottom of the order to start the season.
