Notes 
 Bold prediction time: Mondesi won't be a thing in 2021. Mondesi showed last year that he wasn't worth grabbing in the first three to four rounds of your draft, yet here we are again, with Mondesi going off the board 40th overall per FantasyPros' ADP. He's not a complete zero at power, but you're drafting him for speed only, essentially. If you look at his xwOBA (6th percentile), xSLG (16th percentile), and xBA (14th percentile) and pair that with his 29.8 K% and 4.3 BB% (both bottom 6 percent of baseball), what's to like? Oh, that's not to mention that he's recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Unless you're in a big tournament-style league where you need to look for the splash play, avoid Mondesi this year and find your steals elsewhere where you don't have to make quite the investment.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's no longer Ground Chuck, as the Astros and Rays were able to tap into the electric stuff that Morton has. It's hard to argue with the success that he's had over the past few seasons, but what hurts Morton - and fantasy managers - is that the breakout came late in his career. He's 35, and he said he "fully expects" to hang up his cleats at the end of his current contract. If he's the same pitcher as he has been the past few years, you're getting a steal here. But age and durability concerns have to be on your mind if you draft him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Currently rehabbing major shoulder surgery. Easy fade at current ADP
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Morton only got better after leaving the Astros, setting career bests in innings pitched, ERA, WHIP, and strikeout percentage. Batters simply don't hit his curveball, which he throws more than a third of the time, and his fastball is nearly equally as effective. In a dynasty or keeper format, things may be different, as Morton speaks of retirement often. For this year, however, there is zero reason for concern.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Had the best season of his career in 2019. If he comes close to matching it his ADP will make him a big-time value
