Notes 
 Don't count on the home run production to repeat. Gurriel is a nice mid-round average source, but he may just be empty average and that's it.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
I'm the low guy on Edman, and that's fine. I just am not sold on him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Gurriel was unbelievable last season going from 13 homers and 85 RBIs to 31 and 104. Even with the power spike, he maintained his .290 BA for the third straight season. Although he is older, it is clear that fantasy owners can still rely on him for plenty of production.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Edman had a tidy little rookie season for the Cardinals, as he batted over .300 and put up 11 home runs and 15 steals in 92 games. He looks destined for a super-utility role in 2020, but that should still mean plenty of playing time. With batting average and steals at a premium, Edman is a solid target as you get into the double-digit rounds.
