Notes 
 Mercado is a popular breakout pick, and even in a shortened season, he offers 12/12 potential.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If David Dahl can't stay healthy this year, it's time to stop dreaming on the potential that Dahl has.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Dahl has always had trouble staying healthy even while he is was in the minors but while he is on the field, you know you'll get strong production. Think of him in the same light as Michael Brantley, who should bat around .300 with about 20 homers and a handful of steals.
