Notes 
 I'm the low guy on Edman, and that's fine. I just am not sold on him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's hard to trust a Ray who isn't named Meadows, but the Rays seem intent to make Lowe their everyday second baseman this year. He has added value in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Edman had a tidy little rookie season for the Cardinals, as he batted over .300 and put up 11 home runs and 15 steals in 92 games. He looks destined for a super-utility role in 2020, but that should still mean plenty of playing time. With batting average and steals at a premium, Edman is a solid target as you get into the double-digit rounds.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Lowe didn't have a high prospect pedigree nor did he perform in his rookie debut but he blew up last year for the Rays, hitting 17 homers and driving in 51 runs in just 296 at-bats. Don't be surprised if that grows to 25 and 10 with a solid batting average over a full year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  If Lowe stays healthy and builds off his 2019, he has a shot to drastically outplay his ADP. There are significant question marks, however, as he has injury concerns and struck out in 34% of his at bats.
