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
We've seen the absolute floor and absolute ceiling for Ramírez in 2019, and man, was it the tell of two seasons for him. Even with the early-season struggles, Ramírez posted a 23-homer, 24-steal season. Just because he struggled in the first part of the 2019 season doesn't mean he'll struggle in the first part of this season, but it also doesn't mean that he'll post the numbers that he posted in the latter months of the 2019 season. Still, the production is worth the slight risk.
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
Ramirez's overall 2019 season was obviously subpar, as much as a 23-homer, 24-steal year can be. He batted just .218 in the first half with a mere seven home runs, and his fantasy value was saved only by his 18 first-half steals. But he looked closer to his old self in the second half, batting .327 with an 1.105 OPS. Whether it was him trying to do too much in the first half or something related to his newborn child (his surge happened to coincide with his return from paternity leave), Ramirez's return to normalcy in the second half should give you plenty of confidence in his 2020 outlook.
Dan Harris - 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
Ramirez is certainly an interesting case because he only finished 15th among fantasy third basemen in 2019 but finished the year so strong that many are remembering why he was a first round pick to begin with. Ramirez is a near-ock to go 20/20 again but with upside for that majestic 40/35 season with a strong average.
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
Strange 2019 and yet still a very productive one. 25/15/.280 feels like his Floor with 30/25/.300 as a reachable Ceiling. Safe and yet elite. That pushes him this high and justifiably higher for owners that aren't buying into the idea that SP is thin and needs to be poached earlier than in past years.
