Notes 
 Not a Muncy guy but all those positions are tantalizing and the numbers scream at you. The longer I look at those numbers the more I feel I have to show at least some respect for a guy I don't buy into. #77 is how I do it.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
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
 With the three positions he plays, it's worth wondering why Max Muncy isn't going even earlier? Sure, he's a late-career breakout, but he repeated his 2018 success in 2019, and the Dodgers are going to have him locked into their everyday lineup. In OBP leagues, he's more valuable, as his average leaves much to be desired, but even if he repeats his 2018 and 2019 numbers again in 2020, he's worth the cost.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Didn't run at all in 2019 but provides a safe floor everywhere else
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Very underrated, in a loaded lineup, and has multi-position elgibility on most sites
