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
Maybe someone can try to hit the ball in the air too much. That's what happened with Hoskins last year. This is really his last chance to become a breakout star that we all had hoped. Added value in OBP leagues.
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
Hoskins' BA luck caught up to him and that BA dipped to .226. His power remained about the same rather than jumping to a new level like many seemed to be anticipating. He does still have upside for more but the floor, as we've seen, is a non-top 25 first basemen.
