Notes 
 If anyone can shine in 60 games, it's Byron Buxton, right? Well, only to disappoint us in 2021.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Josh Reddick can't stand in the way forever. Let's see how Dusty Baker handles Tucker this year. He has five-category upside if he can ever play every day.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Buxton has never managed to stay healthy for a full season but while he is healthy, fantasy owners get a source of power and great speed. Should he finally stay on the field all year, fantasy owners could receive 20 homers, 25 steals and a decent batting average out of the 14th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Tucker hasn't lived up to the hype in his first 130 big league at-bats but don't sour on him quite yet. This is a legitimate five-category asset who could go 40/25 HR/SB with a .280 batting average within the next few years. It is tough to tell how quickly it will come but he has to get playing time first.
