Notes 
 There were plenty of warning signs with Robles' batted-ball data heading into 2020, and they're only greater now after an abysmal season during which he slashed .220/.293/.315. The MLB average in barrel rate and average exit velocity are 6.4% and 88.3 MPH, respectively. Robles clocked in at 4.8% and 83.3 MPH in 2019, and then fell to a ridiculous 1.7% and 82.2 MPH in 2020. His continously poor contact limits any upside, but it's worth noting that he still hit 17 homers and stole 28 bases in 2019 despite it all. Robles is still just entering his age-24 season, so massive long-term growth is still certainly on the table. But for now, it's impossible to justify drafting him as anything more than a fifth outfielder in mixed leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
There isn't a lot of positive things to say about Sanchez other than that this is easily the cheapest he has ever been as a fantasy baseball player. He hit 34 homers back in 2019, which is an achievement perhaps no other catcher can be expected to match this year. He's going late enough in drafts that there isn't much downside to taking him. I'd rather risk it with Sanchez (and play the waiver wire if he doesn't work out) than draft one of the first few backstops where the opportunity cost for other positions is much higher.
