Notes 
 Overall the final three weeks of the 2020 season, Mondesi was the hottest hitter in baseball. After failing to live up to his preseason expectations for most of the year, Mondesi hit .376 with 16 (!!) stolen bases over his final 93 plate appearances. It would be easy to argue that he won fantasy leagues down the stretch if it wasn't for such a brutal showing at the plate leading up to it. Still, this is the type of monstrous stolen base upside that'll keep us invested entering 2021. It goes without saying that Mondesi's value increases in roto leagues. He should be viewed as a wildly volatile player to draft.
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Robert came out of the gate like a rocket before hitting just .136/.237/.173 in September. The concern entering 2021 is that pitchers have figured out the book on Robert. While he was doing damage in July and August, Robert was swinging at everything thrown his way. Eventually, pitchers stopped giving him chances. The issue is Robert kept swinging. Baseball is a game of adjustments and it's now on him to adjust back. The talent and skills are here. Even it comes with a weak batting average, Robert has enough power/speed upside to remain fantasy relevant amid slumps. Similar to Adalbero Mondesi, consider Robert a very volatile player in drafts.
