Notes 
 From a fantasy standpoint, Gregorius isn't special. He doesn't walk much, he's injury prone, and his Statcast data from 2020 was downright awful. But there is no denying that Gregorius knows how to take advantage of his home parks, first Yankee Stadium, and now Citizens Bank Park. With Gregorius back with the Phillies, you should again bank on his typical 25-homer power, good counting stats, and a handful of steals. Considering that he's rarely someone who fantasy managers target, his ADP will likely remain discounted, and he's a fine fallback option if you miss out on most of the early- or mid-round options.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Even in a shortened year, Lewis managed to have two distinctively different seasons en route to the AL Rookie of the Year Award. In the first half, he hit .368 with seven home runs. In the second half, he hit just .150 with four home runs. Lewis has plenty of tools but needs to cut back on his strikeouts if he's going to avoid the ups and downs he saw last year. His average is likely to hurt you, but he has 25-homer pop, and can throw in a handful of steals. Despite his rookie of the year award, there's not a ton of buzz on Lewis after his late-season slide, so he'll likely come at a discount.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  There's a tendency to think Lewis came out of nowhere in 2020. That just isn't true as he was Seattle's 11th overall pick back in the 2016 amateur draft. A devastating knee injury delayed the start of his pro career and Lewis ultimately fell out of top prospect rankings. He made his big league debut in 2019, hitting six homers in 18 games to close out the year. The reports on him were high entering summer camp, and Lewis homered off Justin Verlander on Opening Day. Unfortunately, strikeouts became a concern. Through August 31st Lewis had a 24.8% K-rate. That figure ballooned to 37.1% in September. Lewis was a fantastic story in 2020. That doesn't mean we should overvalue him entering 2021.
