Notes 
 Freeman tested positive for COVID-19 at the outset of renewed camp and has reportedly dealt with some difficult symptoms. It seems unlikely that he'll be able to begin the year with the Braves, though he is apparently on the road to recovery. When healthy, Freeman is a dynamic option, so long as he has recovered from the elbow soreness that plagued him in spring. Don't let Freeman slip too far, but he's out of the second round for now.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
8 SBs in 2019 were a surprise. Don't expect it or even considerate them for 2020 in only 60 games. He may have another gear after 30+ in 2019, that's an impressive piece of machinery if he gets there.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Freeman gets a boost in points leagues, but, he's a safe bet for production in the second round. Freeman allows you to lock up your first baseman and not have to worry about playing catch up there later in the draft. The only knock with taking Freeman is that you miss out on the power-speed threats and the top pitchers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
This is why you don't give up on a player - and why you should bet on track record. After Devers' disappointing sophomore campaign, the price sunk on him in 2019 drafts. He responded to the tune of .311/.361/.555 with 32 home runs, 129 runs, 115 RBIs, and eight steals.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Playing through an injury in September hurt overall numbers. Draft in the late-first.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Hit .311 with 32 homers, 115 RBI, 129 runs scored, and even eight steals as a 22-year-old in 2019
