Notes 
 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
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
 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
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
 There are four first-round worthy shortstops this year and among them, Story may be the top bet. He now has 35+ homers 20+ steals and a batting average above .290 in two consecutive seasons. After Bellinger is off the board, you could make a case for Story at pick #6 overall.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
 30 HRs and 20 SBs feels reasonable.The upside of 40/20 is what intrigues me. Lindor and Betts don't have that HR ceiling.
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.
