Notes 
 There's a fallacy out there that when players leave Coors Field, their production and subsequent fantasy value dips. DJ LeMahieu disproved that in 2019, as he had the best numbers of his career. There aren't a lot of question marks with his peripherals, but the main hesitation that fantasy managers should have with LeMahieu is that 2019 was his clear outlier. With the multi-position eligibility, he's worth grabbing at this point in hopes for a repeat or at least close to a repeat for his on-pace numbers.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There are a lot of red flags around how legitimate Escobar's production was the past couple of years. In a dynasty, I'm selling, and in a redraft, I'm looking elsewhere for a starter.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 LeMahieu may have been the most shocking breakout last year, moving from a .276 hitter with limited power at Coors to all of a sudden 26 HRs, 102 RBIs and a .327 BA away from Coors. You can expect some regression but his 2019 campaign was just too great to discount him in the 6th or 7th round.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Escobar had a heck of a breakout season, driving in 118 RBIs thanks to 35 homers. The batting average will never be great but he certainly won't hurt you in that category. What's more, is that he'll qualify for 2B and 3B so that you can slide him around during the week.
