Notes 
 There's a lot of talk around Victor Robles' lack of exit velocity in his first season, and it's warranted. Same with the discussion around his expected stats. That's also warranted. But do you know what he does give you? He gives you elite speed that you need, and he's not a zero in batting average or power. He went 17/28 last year, and that's in a bad year when the peripherals didn't look good. Imagine what he can do if he shows the plus-hit tool that he showed in the minors.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Shiny new toy syndrome is one hell of a drug. There's no doubting Luis Robert's potential, and quite honestly, it's surprising that he isn't going higher with his ADP. We typically set the bar too high for rookies, and when you draft Robert, it's all about expectation. If you're expecting a superstar out of the gate, you'll probably be disappointed. If you are OK with a hybrid of Victor Robles and Yasiel Puig from 2019, you should be happy with drafting Robert here.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Robles did not help from a batting average standpoint but he is still young enough that progress can be expected. Where he did help, however, was on the basepaths with nearly 30 steals to go with 86 runs. He has sufficient power and should grow into more so his seventh-round ADP seems perfect.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Don't look now, but Robert was better than even Fernando Tatis in the minors. Much better. He does have holes in his swing but in 200 games, has still managed to bat .312. He has future 40/40 potential and could be a superstar even as a rookie this year.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Starling Marte upside without the draft day sizzle. 2020 is going to be a breakout year for the 5-tool "Dude." If he makes more consistent contact he can be a 30/40 monster. Don't pay for THAT, but dream on it. Huge upside here. One of the more overlooked and underrated Fantasy OF's in the game.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
ADP is probably too aggressive. Will likely hit in the bottom of the order to start the season.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Robles is only ranked this high because of his power/speed combo but I do not see myself owning very many shares this season. His counting stats were decent in 2019 but his underlying stats were pretty atrocious. He hit the ball very softly and struck out far too often for a guy you would like to see batting at the top end of the lineup. Has the potential to turn it around, but I am not expecting it this season.
