Notes 
 Bohm's major league debut was a success, in that he batted a robust .338 with an .881 OPS. But despite hitting the ball hard consistently (his 10.3% barrel rate and 46.8% hard hit percentage was well above the major league average), he hit just four home runs, and his xBA was just .286. The problem is he simply pounded the ball into the ground, putting up a 53.2% ground ball rate and just 4.8 degrees of launch angle. Bohm never showed a ton of power in the minors, but he's just entering his age-25 season, so there's always room for growth. But for redraft leagues, buy him as a high-average bat with unexceptional power.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Urshela isn't the most exciting player, and perhaps that's why he largely gets ignored by fantasy managers despite his quality production. Over his last two seasons (175 games), he's slashed .310/.358/.523 with 27 home runs and 104 RBI. He won't contribute in steals, but he's an incredibly safe source of batting average, particularly because of his excellent strikeout rate, and he should have plenty of opportunities to contribute counting stats. The only question was his health, but he seems fully recovered from his elbow injury. Draft him with confidence.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Bohm had a terrific rookie season at the plate. It just didn't come with as much game power as we were expecting. Bohm's .144 ISO from 2020 didn't come close to the .213 mark he posted in the minors, but perhaps he was still adjusting to big league pitching. Bohm hit .338, so it isn't as if he was overmatched. His strong hit tool gives him a high floor offensively. His fantasy ceiling will come down to whether or not he taps into that power.
