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
Ozuna nearly won the National League triple crown last season. After back-to-back years of under performing his peripherals, Ozuna finally erupted with a monster fantasy campaign. He's now back with the Braves and projects as one of the safest power bats in the early rounds of 2021 drafts.
Brendan Tuma - 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
Ozuna had a career year with the Braves last year, slashing .338/.431/.636, a career best in each category. His 18 home runs and 56 RBI led the National League, while his barrel rate, average exit velocity, and hard hit rate were all among the best in baseball. Given that he had shoulder surgery before the 2018 season, it's fair to assume that he needed two full years to recover. And although perhaps we can't expect him to again lead the league in power categories, you should expect roughly a 35-homer, 100-RBI season with a plus batting average. That makes him capable of being your first outfielder in mixed leagues and an asset to any fantasy team.
