Washington Nationals Pick

Juan Soto Under 118.5 Runs Batted In (DraftKings

For context on what an accomplishment this would be for Soto, only four players went over 118.5 RBI in 2019, and it was just two in 2018. This is by no means a fade of Soto’s incredible talent, but frankly, I don’t trust what will be around him enough to hit this total. Trea Turner is unlikely to get on base at a .394 clip ahead of him, and the Nats are actually toying with the idea of Victor Robles leading off, again. He might be the MVP, but given the level of talent ahead of him — as fast as those players may be — I can’t bet on a player getting to that incredible RBI total.
