Notes 
 Fifty-three home runs. Pete Alonso surpassed the lofty expectations that he had entering his rookie year, and while you can attribute some of that to the ball, Alonso's power is still among the most elite in the game. Is he going to give you a lot of home runs and RBIs but not much elsewhere? Yeah, probably, but here's the thing with the argument that he's going to give you stats that are easy to find elsewhere - you need even more to win those categories now. If everyone is hitting bombs, get the guy who can out-homer them - especially at a top-heavy position like first base.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Decline. The steals are gone, the BA is next followed by the HR last and that's because the Coors effect buoys many a mediocre slugger. Late bloomer whose decline has been slow but consistent.
Chris Mitchell - FantasyData
 Everything went right in 2019. Will he be able to continue to grow as a hitter after the strikeout rate rose in the second half?
Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
Blackmon was one of the first players who was known to test positive for COVID-19. As of July 10, he still had not yet reported to Rockies camp. Given the lack of input into Blackmon's situation, it's certainly possible that he'll be healthy and ready to go by the time the season starts. But, for now, drop him at least a round or two in your rankings until you hear more.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
  Coors Field. That's the driving force for Charlie Blackmon right now. Gone are the days of 20 steals. Hell, gone are the days of double-digit steals as he stole just two bases in 2019. It makes sense, of course, since he's 34 years old. He's a boring, relatively safe player right now, but not everyone mid-30s player is David Ortiz or Nelson Cruz. The drop off could happen this year for Blackmon where he gives you an empty average, and that's it."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
  Perennially underrated, but his ADP makes sense due to his complete drop in SBs. Only stole 2 bags in 2019 after stealing double digits every year prior. This means you have to buy Blackmon with no help at SBs, which has never been the case. Also may take a hit in runs if Arenado does get traded.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Four category stud playing in Coors Field is once again being underrated
