Notes 
 Biggio doesn't hit the ball particularly well and is passive almost to a fault. He swung at just 36% of the pitches he saw last year, third-fewest in MLB, and that represents a continued trend. That passivity leads to increased strikeouts, but also plenty of walks, as Biggio took a free pass 15.5% of the time last season, which ranked in the top 8 percent of baseball. Despite not making consistently strong contact, Biggio has hit 24 home runs in his 159 major league games, and he's added on 107 runs and 20 steals. Those numbers play extremely well for fantasy, particularly at the weak second base position. Biggio is likely to add third base eligibility with the Blue Jays' addition of Marcus Semien, which should only add to his value, and he makes a fine pick if you can nab him in the fifth round or so where his ADP generally lands.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Because Moustakas was a hitter who played for the Reds, he had a poor 2020 season (seriously, look at their collective numbers). He walked more, struck out more, and lost some points on his batting average, but overall, there was little different in Moustakas's profile. He continued to hit for power and make quality contact. He may not score many runs given his lack of speed and surrounding cast, and the batting average isn't going to help you. But he's got plenty of power for a second-base eligible player, and there's no sign that his production is ready to fall off a cliff.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Too many holes in Biggio's batting profile for me to draft him at his inflated ADP. It also looks like he will open the season batting 7th which is not ideal as I do not see him hitting his way into a top 3 spot in the order.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Biggio has posted elite walk rates in his first two seasons in the majors and he's 20-for-20 in stolen base attempts to begin his career. This makes him a useful player in several formats, raising his floor. However, his batted ball data is admittedly worrisome, and his profile looks like the type that could be affected by a deadened ball this season. Further complicating the situation is the Blue Jays' offseason addition of Marcus Semien, leaving Biggio without a true defensive home on the roster. There's enough downside here for me to be fading him at his current ADP.
