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 essentially a perfect season for Seager. More than a year removed from Tommy John surgery, he morphed into the player that most people expected him to be at this stage of his career. Seager increased his barrel rate from 7.3% to 15.8%, his average exit velocity from 88.8 MPH to 93.2 MPH, and his hard hit percentage from 38.2% to a remarkable 55.9%. Seager's 2020 season does not look fluky, but rather the product of a highly-touted prospect being fully recovered from injury and entering his prime. Seager may not reach the nearly 50-homers he was on pace to hit last year, but a 30-homer season with above a .300 average is well within reach. In other words, his performance over the shortened season is not one to write off.
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
Seager appears to be all the way back from an injury-riddled 2018 campaign that saw him undergo elbow and hip surgeries. He was fantastic last summer, posting an exciting stat line with even more impressive numbers under the hood. Seager hit .307 but had an xBA of .330. He slugged .585 but had an xSLG of .653. Currently tearing the cover off the ball this spring, he's a first-round caliber bat who often slips to the third and fourth rounds of most drafts.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
  Has as good a chance as anyone to be in first round 2022 draft conversations next season, as long as he can stay healthy. A true superstar breakout is on the horizon.
