Notes 
 LeMahieu will return to the Yankees on a six-year deal, and that is great news for fantasy managers. Since he's been New York, he's provided elite all-around production, most notably in batting average, where he has batted .336. He's blossomed into a 25-home run hitter with plenty of runs and RBI, and a handful of steals that chip in with the category. Add to that LeMahieu's multi-position eligibility and he is a huge asset to every fantasy team. With nothing in his profile to suggest a skills decline, he should be drafted before the third round is out in every fantasy league.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
2020 was just a bad season for Bregman, plain and simple. He missed time with a hamstring injury, and generally regressed in every major statistical category. Considering that Bregman will be just 27 years old on Opening Day and had batted .291 with 72 home runs combined over the previous two seasons, fantasy managers can probably just throw out most of what they saw from him in 2020. He'll continue to be an upper echelon option at third base and considering his strong walk and strikeout rates, an even better one in points leagues. He's been battling a hamstring issue for most of camp, but as of now, he doesn't look like he'll miss much, if any, time, so draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 One of my biggest fades this season. DJL is great, but is more of a real life player than he is a fantasy player. Not reaching for him at his ceiling.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
60 game season and people forget how good Bregman is. Such an easy pick at ADP.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
 Over the past two season "DJL" has posted a 183 wRC+ while playing at home compared to a 112 figure on the road. Of course, it's always helpful to be hitting in Yankee Stadium. This makes the fact that he re-signed with the Yankees an important one. LeMahieu is going to keep playing half of his games inside Yankee Stadium. The first modern player to win batting titles in both leagues, LeMahieu's presence on the Yankees means that he's the No. 1 fantasy second baseman for this fantasy writer.
