Notes 
 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 but with only 60 games, every lost HR matters more. 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.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
In OBP leagues, you can make the case for Soto to be the third player off the board, as his plate discipline may just be the best in the league. He's only going to get better, too, as there's more room for power growth in his game. His plate discipline gives him a safe floor moving forward, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 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
I have some concerns that the stolen bases aren't going to develop like his offensive potential has and will continue to. He has Top 5 potential if he can become a 15-20 Stolen Base guy on top of his immense upside with the bat. He would rank higher if I felt more optimistic about the SBs.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 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
Could be a top-3 pick in 2021 fantasy drafts. ADP for his season is banking on him taking that step forward, however
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Hit .295 with a .915 OPS, 29 homers, 16 steals, and 135 runs in a "down season"
