Notes 
 Candelario isn't going to wow you with his numbers, but he'll bat in the middle of the Tigers' order, has eligibility at first and third base, and improved his quality of contact greatly last year. You can try to write off his 2020 production as a product of the shortened season, but given his solid 2018 campaign, it looks more like 2019, and not 2020, was the outlier. Candelario probably tops out at 20 homers, but he should provide a decent average and be a fine bench player for most fantasy leagues.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 
 Broke out in 2020 and not many people are buying into it. Let us not forget that Candelario was a solid prospect and the best part of his profile was his bat. The question was not if he would hit in the majors, it was if he would be a good enough fielder. It took some time to get here, but I am not sure his 2020 was a fluke. He should provide solid value at his late ADP.
