Notes 
 Smith could be a Top 5 catcher in 2021 if he can tap into the production that he had in the minors. The March reports of him being in a timeshare are slightly concerning.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
It's almost as if all of the signs showing that his 2018 production was a fluke turned out to be true. Weird how that works.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Smith was among the biggest surprises last season, knocking 15 homers and 42 RBIs in just 170 at-bats. That's a full-season pace of 40 homers and a 120 RBIs. Granted, that won't happen, but the upside is clearly there for a special season. You'll have to decide if the hefty ADP is worth the risk.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Peralta missed 70 games last year but still hit 12 homers with 57 RBIs and a strong batting average. If he can stay healthy the full year, fantasy owners may see a return to that great 2018 line of 30 homers, 87 RBIs and a .293 batting average. In round 20, he's an absolute steal.
