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
A wrist injury limited Albies to just 29 games last season, and affected his performance early in the year before he went on the IL. In other words, there's little reason to draw conclusions from anything he did last year, including his drop in walk rate and increase in strikeout rate. Albies had established a rough 24-15 baseline from 2018-2019, and at 24 years old, there's no reason to expect that floor to decrease. With his power and speed combination, and his locked in strong RBI and runs scored numbers batting near the top of the Braves' lineup, Albies should be either the first second baseman drafted or the second behind DJ LeMahieu, depending on how you want to build your team.
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.
