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
I love Laureano's five-tool skills and dual-threat HR/SB combination. Schedule and park work against him but the skills are legit and underrated.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 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
Ramon Laureano just checks the boxes for what you want in a fantasy player. Power? Check. Speed? Check. Elite-level defense? Check. Outside of walks, Laureano is the total package that fantasy players look for. He's not elite in any category, but as long as he continues to run and have an elite line-drive rate, he'll be a must-start option throughout the season.
Michael Waterloo - 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
Laureano was never a big-time prospect but he certainly put on a show in just 123 games last year, knocking 24 homers with 13 steals and a .286 batting average. Over a full season, he could potentially end up around 30/20 but he does come with some risk.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 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.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Power/Speed combo players are tremendous roto fantasy assets, but he is still young and had some very rough patches in 2019. Not buying into this breakout that some people are expecting. 20/20 is certainly viable, but there will be ups and downs.
