Notes 
 Fifty-three home runs. Pete Alonso surpassed the lofty expectations that he had entering his rookie year, and while you can attribute some of that to the ball, Alonso's power is still among the most elite in the game. Is he going to give you a lot of home runs and RBIs but not much elsewhere? Yeah, probably, but here's the thing with the argument that he's going to give you stats that are easy to find elsewhere - you need even more to win those categories now. If everyone is hitting bombs, get the guy who can out-homer them - especially at a top-heavy position like first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 It feels odd that a rookie can hit 53 homers with 120 RBIs then end up draft towards the end of the third round but that's exactly what we have here. 60 homrs is a real possibility but then again, so are 35 homers with a .235 batting average, similar to the disappointment fantasy owners had with Hoskins last season.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
As a 22-year-old, Gleyber managed 38 homers, 96 runs and 91 RBIs with a .280 batting average. There is still room for more growth and it would no surprise if he became an MVP candidate this year as a 23-year-old. There isn't enough speed to make him the top fantasy second basemen yet though.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
