Notes 
 Everything that could go right, did go right for Bo Bichette in his rookie year in Toronto. Is he a .300 hitter? Probably not, but he'll hit around .285 with a power/speed combo that will play up in Toronto. Could there be an adjustment period in his second season? Sure, there could. Are there concerns that the performance wasn't legit? Not really, if you look at his prospect pedigree and his underlying numbers. The ceiling is sky-high here, and Bichette could be a top 5 shortstop off the board in 2021."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Marcus Semien is one of the most polarizing figures in fantasy this year. He had an MVP-type season last season - not saying that lightly at all - and there's not much in the peripherals that scream regression is coming, but he is a 29-year-old who had a breakout season by all accounts. Prior to 2019, he was the definition of a replacement-level fantasy option. There should always be trepidation with those types of breakouts.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Like his father, the young Bichette is one heck of a hitter and he proved that by batting .311 with 11 homers in just 46 games last year. Over a full season, it would be no surprise if he morphed into a 30 homer threat with a quality batting average and all the runs and RBIs to accompany it.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Semien is currently being drafted outside the top 12 fantasy shortstops around the 7th round but did you know that he finished among the top five last year and ahead of Lindor, Turner and Torres. Semien knocked 33 bombs with double-digit steals, a good .285 batting average and 123 runs.
