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
deGrom has been awesome, but 2020 is the year he regresses. If Scherzer wasn't showing signs of decline I would have him higher than the two-time Cy Young from NY, I value pitching more in the 60 game sprint than normal years, but I can't move deGrom up when I feel regression is on the way in 2020.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 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
In points leagues, you can make the case for deGrom first overall. In roto leagues, you can still make the case for him or Gerrit Cole earlier than here, but the name of the game this year is volume, and as great as deGrom is, you're looking at 13 starts or so max from him. Still, he's the best pitcher in the game, and if you want a leg-up on the rest of the league, this is a good spot to grab him.
Michael Waterloo - 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
After winning his second consecutive Cy Young Award, deGrom has an obvious case to be the top pitcher taken in the game. Back-to-back season with a sub-2.50 ERA and sub-1.00 WHIP with at least 200 strikeouts makes deGrom perhaps the safest pitcher in the game, especially after three straight seasons of at least 200 innings pitched. The bugaboo for deGrom is his lack of wins - just 21 over the last two seasons despite historic numbers. But with the improved Mets bullpen, there's every reason to think deGrom can get back to the 15-win total he put up in 2017. It's him or Gerrit Cole for the top pitcher off the board and you can't go wrong.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Still waiting for that one magical season where EVERYTHING comes together

His age and lack of injury history might make him a safer bet than Verlander/Scherzer
