Notes 
 Bieber may not be the most polarizing player in drafts this year, but it's hard to argue that he isn't the most polarizing pitcher. For every positive (peripherals were in line with his surface stats), that are concerns (he gets hit HARD). If you're a Bieber truther (Belieber, I guess), it's good value for him here as the ace of your staff. But if you have any pause about him at all, you should fade him and go with a safer option.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Even with youth on Albies' side, he's a rather boring pick here, but boring can be good - especially at the position. But, at a third-round cost, he doesn't really stand out in any category. You're banking on the .295 average being more legitimate than the .261 average in 2018 and hoping that he steals mid-teens bases again."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Bieber was simply fantastic in 2019 and gave you everything you want from a stud pitcher. He was second in the league innings, had a 3.28 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP, and was top-10 in strikeout and walk rates. He gave up his fair share of home runs but, overall, there are next to no complaint about Bieber. Draft him with confidence as a low-end ace.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
A useful, across-the-board contributor who just turned 23 years old
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Figured out how to pitch to lefties last year. If that holds he'll once again be elite due to his exceptional command
