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
Marcell Ozuna bet on himself with a one-year contract in Atlanta, and as a fantasy. manager, you should, too. Ozuna was the poster boy for being unlucky in 2019, especially with his BABIP driving down his average. His batted ball data was still fantastic, and he offered double-digit steals, surprisingly. If Ozuna repeats his batted-ball numbers, he'll no longer need to bet on himself with a one-year deal, and you'll see his price surge in 2021 drafts."
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
Ozuna didn't have a terrible 2019, but his .241 batting average and injuries certainly put a damper on his year. And although he was due for a rebound anyway (his .259 BABIP was preposterously low), moving to the Braves on a one-year deal should be just what the doctor ordered. Not only will he be batting in the middle of an incredible strong lineup. but he'll also be playing in a much more favorable home park. With plenty of motivation as he looks for a multi-year deal, expect a big season from Ozuna.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Ozuna had a down year thanks to some injuries he played through, but this is still a bat that should hit 35 homers with 100 RBIs in Atlanta's lineup if he can stay healthy throughout the year. In fact, last year he even stole a dozen bases despite missing 30 games.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  A steal at current ADP. He hits the ball ridiculously hard and is entering a stacked lineup. Not to mention the handful of SBs he'll get for you. Sign me up.
