Notes 
 How many guesses would it take you to land on Jose Abreu as the AL leader in RBIs in 2019? He's not a sexy player, and frankly, he never has been. But he's a consistent source of RBIs and his batting average bounced back after a down year in the category in 2018. Even if he doesn't drive in 123 runs again, he's in the best lineup of his career, and he's a lock as a top 10 first baseman.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Only 38 players had an ISO of more than .160 with a K% lower than 18 percent in at least 400 plate appearances. Guerrero has his name there with the likes of Cody Bellinger, Alex Bregman, Ketel Marte, Nolan Arenado, Francisco Lindor, Xander Bogaerts, and more. Guerrero was never going to live up to the expectations in his rookie season, but it was still a damn good season. The generational talent shouldn't be overlooked due to an OK debut. He crushes the ball, and it's just about hitting fewer groundballs in his second season. Oh yeah, he's only 21 years old. Invest now, or get left behind.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Abreu outperformed Anthony Rizzo and Paul Goldschmidt last season, knocking 33 homers with 122 RBIs and a solid as always .282 BA. He hasn't slowed down one bit despite the age so you can rely on him to produce once again if you grab him in the 7th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
It wouldn't surprise anyone if Guerrero batted .330 with 40 homers this year but we are still talking about a kid who didn't outperform Brian Anderson, Renato Nunez or Todd Frazier last year in similar plate appearances. His upside is breathtaking but there is unquestionably some risk at his ADP.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Super reliable option with a now improved lineup. Very safe and consistent pick at ADP.
