Notes 
 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
Robert's production was pretty much what it was cracked up to be in terms of his power and speed, but his .233 batting average was a little hard to stomach. He struck out way too much (32.2% of the time, bottom 6% of the league), and just didn't make hard enough contact consistently to keep his average above water. But Robert will be just 24 years old this season, so there's plenty of room for growth in that area. That's particularly true given that Robert was a career .312 hitter in the minors and .314 in Cuba. Even if he was a batting average drain, which you shouldn't expect, given that he was on a roughly 30-25 full-season pace last year, fantasy managers should be able to stomach it. Draft him as a borderline first outfielder in fantasy leagues and reap the rewards.
Dan Harris - 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.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Luis Robert signed a long-term extension with the White Sox and has the upside to leap to superstardom in 2021. He slashed .233/.302/.406 with 10 home runs and nine stolen bases across 225 plate appearances. If it weren't for a rough September, Robert was well on his way to finishing as a top-20 player. His tools are off the chart and he will bat in the middle of a loaded White Sox lineup. Everything is lined up for Robert to bust out if he can put it all together in 2021.
Brad Camara - FantasyPros
  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.
