Notes 
 Turner is one of the biggest risers in a shortened season. His elite speed, which he showcased in the first week of the 2019 season before breaking his finger on a bunt attempt, is enough to win the category for you for the 60-game sprint. He's a non-zero in the other categories, too, which makes him a top target if you have the fifth pick.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
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
 It just feels like there's a 60-steal season waiting in Turner's future, and you simply can't say that about too many other players in the game at this point. With stolen bases as a whole on the decline, Turner has an absolute floor of 40 (barring injury) and a much higher ceiling. Add to that the fact that he should help fantasy owners in three other categories and be neutral in the fourth (RBI), and he should be taken in the first round of all rotisserie leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
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
 Turner has struggled to stay healthy thus far but when he is on the field, there may be no better fantasy asset. He has the upside to hit 25 homers with 50 steals and a .300 batting average. There is virtually no chance he drops into the second round so grab him while you can.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Freeman might not be the most exciting second round pick, but the floor over the past four years has been a .300 hitter with 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and 25 homers. Last season he was at 113 runs, 38 HRs and 121 RBIs so it isn't like his ceiling is too bad either.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 40-50 Stolen Base potential is the reason Turner ranks higher than some others. Prioritizing stolen bases over home runs. Lindor is the safer selection and thats why, in a very close call, Turner ranks after Lindor but slightly ahead of Betts.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Playing through an injury in September hurt overall numbers. Draft in the late-first.

 Still waiting for that one magical season where EVERYTHING comes together
