Notes 
 Bellinger had a tremendous season, drastically improving his walk rate and cutting his strikeout rate, and setting career highs in each of the five standard rotisserie categories. If there's a knock on Bellinger's season, it's that so much of his production came in the first half, and particularly in March where he batted .431 with 14 home runs. Beginning in June, he batted .280 or lower in each month, and he batted just .261 in the second half. But the numbers all count, and although it's reasonable to expect Bellinger to take a slight step back from his overall 2019 numbers, it still leaves him as a top-five pick.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
After weeks of rumors, Betts was finally traded to the Dodgers, but the move shouldn't impact his value much. His plate appearances and home runs, because of the less hitter-friendly parks in his new division, may downgrade his numbers ever so slightly. But Betts has essentially averaged a .305-120-30-95-25 line over his past four seasons. Even with a minor drop, he'll still earn his top-five draft position.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 After his ridiculous start in April, Bellinger cooled off for sure, but still played at a 43 HR, 102 RBI, 116 R, 13 SB, .274 pace. He doesn't come with the risk some are suggesting as let's remember, he was still just 23 years old in his down season of 2018. You can draft him in the top-five with confidence but behind Trout, Acuna and Betts.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Mookie's batting average dipped 50 points from the year prior and he stole 14 fewer bases despite an extra 15 games played. With that said, his 2018 performance shows he has the upside to finish as the #1 fantasy player. As it is, the choice at #4 and #5 is between he and his teammate, Cody Bellinger.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 I project regression across the board. 30-35 HRs, 8-13 SBs in 2020 rather than his 47/15 2019. Still a really strong season, still qualifies in the outfield and a slightly better Dodger than Betts with upside to provide 40/15 if his regression is less severe than my projections. Thats why he ranks ahead of Betts but behind the dual-threat middle infielders at picks 4-6.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Betts looks like a very safe, conservative 25/25 2020 OF in LAD. Leaving Fenway Park won't be a huge hit to the HR totals, if at all. Betts could be statistically better than Story/Lindor and Turner but it's a close call. Take the SS' ahead of the OF and go with the SB potential of Turner before Betts.
