Notes 
 A wrist injury limited Albies to just 29 games last season, and affected his performance early in the year before he went on the IL. In other words, there's little reason to draw conclusions from anything he did last year, including his drop in walk rate and increase in strikeout rate. Albies had established a rough 24-15 baseline from 2018-2019, and at 24 years old, there's no reason to expect that floor to decrease. With his power and speed combination, and his locked in strong RBI and runs scored numbers batting near the top of the Braves' lineup, Albies should be either the first second baseman drafted or the second behind DJ LeMahieu, depending on how you want to build your team.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
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
  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.
