Notes 
 Decline. The steals are gone, the BA is next followed by the HR last and that's because the Coors effect buoys many a mediocre slugger. Late bloomer whose decline has been slow but consistent.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
Bold prediction time: Mondesi won't be a thing in 2021. Mondesi showed last year that he wasn't worth grabbing in the first three to four rounds of your draft, yet here we are again, with Mondesi going off the board 40th overall per FantasyPros' ADP. He's not a complete zero at power, but you're drafting him for speed only, essentially. If you look at his xwOBA (6th percentile), xSLG (16th percentile), and xBA (14th percentile) and pair that with his 29.8 K% and 4.3 BB% (both bottom 6 percent of baseball), what's to like? Oh, that's not to mention that he's recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. Unless you're in a big tournament-style league where you need to look for the splash play, avoid Mondesi this year and find your steals elsewhere where you don't have to make quite the investment.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Blackmon was one of the first players who was known to test positive for COVID-19. As of July 10, he still had not yet reported to Rockies camp. Given the lack of input into Blackmon's situation, it's certainly possible that he'll be healthy and ready to go by the time the season starts. But, for now, drop him at least a round or two in your rankings until you hear more.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Currently rehabbing major shoulder surgery. Easy fade at current ADP
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
 Coors Field. That's the driving force for Charlie Blackmon right now. Gone are the days of 20 steals. Hell, gone are the days of double-digit steals as he stole just two bases in 2019. It makes sense, of course, since he's 34 years old. He's a boring, relatively safe player right now, but not everyone mid-30s player is David Ortiz or Nelson Cruz. The drop off could happen this year for Blackmon where he gives you an empty average, and that's it."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 
 Perennially underrated, but his ADP makes sense due to his complete drop in SBs. Only stole 2 bags in 2019 after stealing double digits every year prior. This means you have to buy Blackmon with no help at SBs, which has never been the case. Also may take a hit in runs if Arenado does get traded.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 
 Four category stud playing in Coors Field is once again being underrated
