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
Consistent 30 home run seasons eligible at 2B and 3B in an upgraded CIncy lineup in some very hitter-friendly ballparks this season. It's a fraud that he plays 2B but he does and it counts in Fantasy. The Moose is loose and I am owning many many shares.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Didn't run at all in 2019 but provides a safe floor everywhere else
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Mike Moustakas is the poster child for betting on yourself, as he's done so in back-to-back seasons. Now he's in Cincinnati, which we know is a great hitter's venue, so he won't experience any drop-off from leaving Milwaukee. What's more, Moustakas is playing second base, which makes him even more valuable than if he only had third base eligibility like in years past. The power is real, and so is this value for Moose in drafts.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Perennially underrated. In a great hitters park he should reach 30+ homers again.
