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
Mercado is a popular breakout pick, and even in a shortened season, he offers 12/12 potential.
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
Mercado impressed as a rookie, hitting 15 homers, stealing 15 bags and scoring 70 runs in just 115 games. His production slowed at the end of the year, though, and the overall batting average will likely dip so don't expect the same useful pace for all of 2020.
