Notes 
 Jeter Downs. Alex Verdugo. Betts will be tied to these players moving forward, and he has 60 games to show the Dodgers and the Dodger faithful that he was worth it. Betts could be the top player in fantasy by season's end, and it shouldn't surprise you.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
J.D. Martinez was a first-round player in drafts last year, but as is the case with fantasy managers, there's a quick overreaction to a "down" year, which is why we see Martinez fall to the second round this year. Targeting bounce-back players at a value is vital to winning fantasy leagues. Martinez can give you first-round value, despite not having the steals or Mookie Betts in the lineup.
Michael Waterloo - 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
Martinez won't steal any bases but with 40 homers, 100+ RBIs and a .300 batting average every year, fantasy owners are getting an absolute steal at any point in the second round of drafts. Don't be scared off by his dip in production, as underlying metrics suggest he was among the most unlucky hitters in baseball.
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
Seems to be overlooked every season. High end contributor in every category except SBs. Super solid 2nd round pick.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 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.
