Notes 
 30 HRs and 20 SBs feels reasonable adjusted for the 60 game sprint.The upside of 40/20 is what intrigues me. Lindor and Betts don't have that HR ceiling.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
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
 You'd, of course, love 81 games in Coors Field for Story, but we'll take what we can get with him. He replicated his stolen base numbers from 2018 in 2019 enough that there's no reason to doubt his speed. He's a 15/15 candidate in the shortened season.
Michael Waterloo - 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
 It's safe to say that Story's 2017 season was just an outlier, and he's established a fairly reliable 35-homer, 20-plus steal baseline. Pay no attention to Story's dramatically lower xBA - Coors Field will always inflate batting average and should keep Story's mark with roughly a .280 floor at worst. Even at a deep shortstop position, he's a unique five-category player, and is an easy first-round selection.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
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
 Back to back seasons with 35+ homers and 20+ steals
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
His age and lack of injury history might make him a safer bet than Verlander/Scherzer
