Notes 
 Fenway Park kills lefties and for a guy who utilizes his hit tool to generate home runs and lacks true impact power, Fenway Park is a killer for Benny Biceps.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Can Conforto hit lefties? That's going to continue to be the issue that lowers him in overall rankings each year, if not.
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
It is clear at this point that Conforto won't be a source of useful batting average or steals, but he crushes in the other three categories, hitting 33 homers with 90+ RBIs and runs scored last season. That is a quality stat-line around round nine.
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
30 homers with a decent batting average and on-base skills isn't as special as it used to be
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
