Notes 
 2020 was essentially a perfect season for Seager. More than a year removed from Tommy John surgery, he morphed into the player that most people expected him to be at this stage of his career. Seager increased his barrel rate from 7.3% to 15.8%, his average exit velocity from 88.8 MPH to 93.2 MPH, and his hard hit percentage from 38.2% to a remarkable 55.9%. Seager's 2020 season does not look fluky, but rather the product of a highly-touted prospect being fully recovered from injury and entering his prime. Seager may not reach the nearly 50-homers he was on pace to hit last year, but a 30-homer season with above a .300 average is well within reach. In other words, his performance over the shortened season is not one to write off.
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
 Seager appears to be all the way back from an injury-riddled 2018 campaign that saw him undergo elbow and hip surgeries. He was fantastic last summer, posting an exciting stat line with even more impressive numbers under the hood. Seager hit .307 but had an xBA of .330. He slugged .585 but had an xSLG of .653. Currently tearing the cover off the ball this spring, he's a first-round caliber bat who often slips to the third and fourth rounds of most drafts.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
 
 Has as good a chance as anyone to be in first round 2022 draft conversations next season, as long as he can stay healthy. A true superstar breakout is on the horizon.
