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
In OBP leagues, you can make the case for Soto to be the third player off the board, as his plate discipline may just be the best in the league. He's only going to get better, too, as there's more room for power growth in his game. His plate discipline gives him a safe floor moving forward, too.
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
I have some concerns that the stolen bases aren't going to develop like his offensive potential has and will continue to. He has Top 5 potential if he can become a 15-20 Stolen Base guy on top of his immense upside with the bat. He would rank higher if I felt more optimistic about the SBs.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 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
Could be a top-3 pick in 2021 fantasy drafts. ADP for his season is banking on him taking that step forward, however
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Still waiting for that one magical season where EVERYTHING comes together
