Notes 
 Yastrzemski overachieved in 2019, but he's a fine OF 5 if you need a body who will play daily.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
If any player will go the Marcus Semien route this year, it's Willy Adames. Wander Franco is waiting in the wings.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Yastrzemski will enter the season as the Giants' everyday right-fielder, likely batting fifth. That's a prime spot for a hitter who slugged 33 home runs n 147 games between the majors and minors last season. Yastrzemski had never shown that kind of power prior to 2019, but his batted ball data largely backed it up. You won't have to pay the price for a 30-homer hitter, so just scoop him up late and hope for a repeat.
