Notes 
 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
Yoan Moncada is going to have a high BABIP, but a .406 BABIP even for Moncada is high, and it's a big reason for his .315 batting average in 2019, which is the clear outlier of his albeit young career so far. Moncada saw his strikeout rate go down in 2019 to 27.5%, but his walk rate also decreased from 2018. For a player who has a 70 speed tool, his high for steals in a season in the big leagues is 12. The way the White Sox are with their approach to steals is a reason that you shouldn't expect Moncada, Luis Robert, or Tim Anderson to carry you in those categories. At a deep position, you can easily pivot away from Moncada at this price point.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Believe it or not, Devers managed to finish at the number one fantasy third basemen last year over Rendon, Arenado and Bregman. Batting in the middle of Boston's great lineup afforded him 129 runs and 115 RBIs which went a long way, but he contributed in all five categories and is young enough that he might do even better in 2020.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
The former top overall prospect had a heck of a season in 2019 but his .400 BABIP is almost certainly not going to repeat in 2020. Even still, this young stud has room for more growth and could provide 30 homers plus 10 steals for fantasy owners.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Moncada has imperfections but I can't help but dream on the tools. He is a physical freak with flaws that have prevented him from fully realizing his ability. I will continue to push him higher up my rankings than others do until I finally no longer can justify doing it. 2B/3B eligibility in leagues where he qualifies that way makes it that much easier to buy into the upside.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
  High upside pick, well worth his ADP. Broke out last season and is still only 24 years old. Has good a shot as anyone to jump into the top two rounds next season.
