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
Strange 2019 and yet still a very productive one. 25/15/.280 feels like his Floor with 30/25/.300 as a reachable Ceiling in a standard 162 game year. Adjust the math for 60 and you got a Top 10 dual-threat guy. 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.
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
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'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
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
