Notes 
 Rendon's stock feels like it has dropped dramatically, but there's really nothing in the small sample size of the 2020 season that should alter your outlook much on him. Yes, he didn't hit the ball as hard consistently, but he walked more than ever, maintained his elite strikeout rate, and still put up a roughly 30-homer, 100-RBI pace. Still just 31 years old, there should be plenty left in the tank this season for the veteran, and he should once again be a strong four-category contributor, with a small bit of speed thrown in for good measure.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
2020 was just a bad season for Bregman, plain and simple. He missed time with a hamstring injury, and generally regressed in every major statistical category. Considering that Bregman will be just 27 years old on Opening Day and had batted .291 with 72 home runs combined over the previous two seasons, fantasy managers can probably just throw out most of what they saw from him in 2020. He'll continue to be an upper echelon option at third base and considering his strong walk and strikeout rates, an even better one in points leagues. He's been battling a hamstring issue for most of camp, but as of now, he doesn't look like he'll miss much, if any, time, so draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 It's maddening how underrated Rendon continues to be among fantasy analysts. His wOBA and xwOBA both finished in the 92nd percentile or better for the third straight season. Additionally, he'll have a full season of hitting behind Mike Trout in 2021, which will obviously be fantastic for his RBI totals. Rendon is currently going around pick 40 in NFBC drafts, an ADP that makes him an appealing target for fantasy managers who start SP-SP.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
60 game season and people forget how good Bregman is. Such an easy pick at ADP.
