Notes 
 Coming off a career-year in 2019, Escobar had one of his worst campaigns during his career in 2020. He slashed .212/.270/.335 with four homers, 20 RBI, 22 runs scored and one stolen base across 54 games. The 32-year-old's K%(18.5) and BB% (6.2) were close to his 2019 averages. Escobar could bounce back in 2021 and is a bargain at his current ADP of 270.
Brad Camara - FantasyPros
Calhoun tore his knee meniscus in early March, and has a 4-6 week timetable for his recovery. When healthy, he offers a fairly reliable baseline of production: he will hit plenty of homers and drain your batting average, while offering passable but unspectacular counting statistics otherwise. He's a fine bench outfielder who can always be a plug-in, and he'll likely be essentially free in drafts this year with the injury.
