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
If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - 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
As a 22-year-old, Gleyber managed 38 homers, 96 runs and 91 RBIs with a .280 batting average. There is still room for more growth and it would no surprise if he became an MVP candidate this year as a 23-year-old. There isn't enough speed to make him the top fantasy second basemen yet though.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 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.
