2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Notes
Ronald Acuna Jr. Note

We knew Acuna would develop into an elite fantasy option one day, but few saw it happening this quickly. He combined power (41 homers), speed (37 stolen bases), and his spot batting atop an outstanding lineup (127 runs, 101 RBI) to put up one of the all-around great seasons. He'll stick in the leadoff spot this year, which should ensure that he continues to run early and often, and there's little reason to expect his numbers to dip much from last year. In points leagues, where his strikeout rate is a bit of a negative, his stock falls just a tad, but otherwise, no one would fault you if you made him the top pick in the draft.

Freddie Freeman Note

Freeman tested positive for COVID-19 at the outset of renewed camp and has reportedly dealt with some difficult symptoms. It seems unlikely that he'll be able to begin the year with the Braves, though he is apparently on the road to recovery. When healthy, Freeman is a dynamic option, so long as he has recovered from the elbow soreness that plagued him in spring. Don't let Freeman slip too far, but he's out of the second round for now.

Marcell Ozuna Note

Ozuna didn't have a terrible 2019, but his .241 batting average and injuries certainly put a damper on his year. And although he was due for a rebound anyway (his .259 BABIP was preposterously low), moving to the Braves on a one-year deal should be just what the doctor ordered. Not only will he be batting in the middle of an incredible strong lineup. but he'll also be playing in a much more favorable home park. With plenty of motivation as he looks for a multi-year deal, expect a big season from Ozuna.
