Notes 
 Tucker finally got regular playing time last year and it was mostly what fantasy owners had hoped for. Tucker didn't quite put up his gaudy numbers that he averaged in the minors, but he was on roughly a 25-20 pace while helping out in the other statistical categories. Tucker's batted ball profile didn't completely wow anyone last year, but given his performance, his prospect pedigree and minor-league track record, and his guaranteed spot in a strong lineup, fantasy managers should feel little concern about having Tucker be their first outfielder in fantasy.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
2020 was just a bad season for Bregman, plain and simple. He missed time with a hamstring injury, and generally regressed in every major statistical category. Considering that Bregman will be just 27 years old on Opening Day and had batted .291 with 72 home runs combined over the previous two seasons, fantasy managers can probably just throw out most of what they saw from him in 2020. He'll continue to be an upper echelon option at third base and considering his strong walk and strikeout rates, an even better one in points leagues. He's been battling a hamstring issue for most of camp, but as of now, he doesn't look like he'll miss much, if any, time, so draft him accordingly.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Many expected Tucker to take off like a rocket once Yordan Alvarez wasn't ready to start the season on time, but it didn't happen right away. Perhaps he was still adjusting to big league pitching. Either way, over his final 140 plate appearances Tucker hit .317/.386/.619 to go along with seven homers and five stolen bases. Set to enter his age-24 campaign, Tucker has the power/speed combination fantasy players dream of.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
60 game season and people forget how good Bregman is. Such an easy pick at ADP.
