Notes 
 After an impressive 2019 season during which he hit 18 home runs in just 111 games, Kelly had a down 2020, batting just .221 with five long balls. Kelly's walk rate regressed significantly to just 4.7%, and he showed little of the patience that brought him success in 2019. Daulton Varsho is a threat to his playing time, but it seems like Kelly will have the lead role behind the plate, with Varsho filling in and getting time at outfield. That should make Kelly a borderline startable catcher in most mixed leagues, assuming he can bounce back from his down 2020 campaign.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Jo Adell is expected to begin the 2021 campaign in the minors as "he needs more time" to develop, per Angels manager Joe Madden. The Angels recently acquired OF Dexter Fowler and the veteran is expected to start alongside Mike Trout and Justin Upton, making Adell the odd man out. Adell struggled in the majors last season, slashing .161/.212/.266 across 132 plate appearances. He looked overmatched against major league pitching, but has all the tools to develop into a fantasy superstar. The 21-year-old will continue his development and is a boom-bust option in re-draft formats.
