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
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
 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
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
 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
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
 Back to back seasons with 35+ homers and 20+ steals
