Notes 
 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
Kepler finally tapped into his potential last season after showing signs of it in 2018. There's nothing really, from an underlying or surface level, that says it was flukey.
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
Most seem to recall Kepler knocking 36 homers but did you realize he did it while missing 30 games. The batting average will almost definitely be under .260 but if he plays the full season, you can bet on 90+ runs and 90+ RBIs this season.
