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
Suarez's power numbers were again strong in last year's shortened season, but his batting average plummeted to just .202. He hit the ball as hard as ever, however, and ranked in the top 9% of the league in average exit velocity. Suarez's BABIP was just .214 (he has a .310 mark), and although he hit more fly balls than usual, there's nothing to suggest that his batting average should have fallen off a cliff. In other words, there's plenty of reason to expect Suarez to hit closer to his .261 career batting average this year. Add to that his potential for 40 home runs and 200 combined runs and RBI, and he'll likely be a value in this year's draft.
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.
