Notes 
 Rinse. Wash. Repeat. Every draft season, we as a collective fantasy community get excited about drafting Starling Marte on our teams. When the season is over, we end up feeling pretty meh about it. Rinse. Wash. Repeat. He's in a new ballpark with a better team, sure, but let's not forget that he's 31 years old, and with speed as his main value driver, we can expect that to start to decline rapidly, potentially this season. What's more, Marte has only had two seasons with more than 600 plate appearances in his career despite being a regular presence toward the top of the Pittsburgh lineup.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 Marte set career-highs in home runs, runs scored, RBI, and slugging percentage in 2019, and now gets an upgrade in supporting cast and home park with the move to the Diamondbacks. The Pirates ranked 20th in 2019 in runs scored, while the Diamondbacks ranked 11th, and PNC Park was one of the worst parks for righty batters last season. Marte may not be able to grow his 2019 numbers at this point given his age, but his change in teams certainly doesn't hurt.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Everything went right in 2019. Will he be able to continue to grow as a hitter after the strikeout rate rose in the second half?
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 I am a huge 5-tool chasing type of guy and with a move to Arizona, I want shares of Marte to see if he can be a 30/30/.285 "Dude" in 2020. 20/20 feels like a lock, 25/25 is a reasonable hope while 30/30 is a reach worth dreaming on.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 
 Set a career high in homers last season in what was likely the best overall season of his career. The HRs may get knocked down under 20 again if the ball changes, but should be a solid contributor everywhere. Not a big fan of reaching for him at all, because his ceiling is not like others in the early rounds. Safe pick.

 More valuable in roto leagues due to stolen bases
