Notes 
 2020 was essentially a perfect season for Seager. More than a year removed from Tommy John surgery, he morphed into the player that most people expected him to be at this stage of his career. Seager increased his barrel rate from 7.3% to 15.8%, his average exit velocity from 88.8 MPH to 93.2 MPH, and his hard hit percentage from 38.2% to a remarkable 55.9%. Seager's 2020 season does not look fluky, but rather the product of a highly-touted prospect being fully recovered from injury and entering his prime. Seager may not reach the nearly 50-homers he was on pace to hit last year, but a 30-homer season with above a .300 average is well within reach. In other words, his performance over the shortened season is not one to write off.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
For most players, fantasy managers need to consider whether to discount a highly out-of-character dip in their numbers given the shortened season. For Abreu, it's the opposite - whether fantasy managers should give credence to an outstanding MVP season, during which Abreu vastly outperformed his numbers from every other season of his career. Everything was good for Abreu in 2020, everything. He hit the ball harder than ever and consistently. He got on base more. He had career-high paces in every category. Abreu will be entering his age-34 season, so there's no way you should expect a repeat performance, but it's worth noting that he has increased his average exit velocity and hard-hit percentage in each of the last five seasons. Abreu's cost doesn't match his numbers last year, of course, but you'll still have to pay a hefty price in drafts. Given his safety and and his newly-discovered upside, however, it's worth it.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Seager appears to be all the way back from an injury-riddled 2018 campaign that saw him undergo elbow and hip surgeries. He was fantastic last summer, posting an exciting stat line with even more impressive numbers under the hood. Seager hit .307 but had an xBA of .330. He slugged .585 but had an xSLG of .653. Currently tearing the cover off the ball this spring, he's a first-round caliber bat who often slips to the third and fourth rounds of most drafts.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
 
 Has as good a chance as anyone to be in first round 2022 draft conversations next season, as long as he can stay healthy. A true superstar breakout is on the horizon.
