Notes 
 If you're looking for reasons to throw out a player's 2020 season, Moncada's battle with COVID-19 offers you just that for him. His quality of contact dropped like a stone, he struck out a ton, and he went back to his old passive approach, rather than the aggressive one that had led to such gains in 2019. Moncada detailed his struggles after suffering from the virus, so it's a legitimate excuse and surely led to his struggles. Moncada is likely to hit about 25 home runs, and help you everywhere except perhaps batting average (though his .315 mark in 2019 shows his upside). Although he won't be a superstar, at a third base position that gets shallow quicker than expected, he makes a fine option you can wait on but who will offer plenty of production.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Biggio doesn't hit the ball particularly well and is passive almost to a fault. He swung at just 36% of the pitches he saw last year, third-fewest in MLB, and that represents a continued trend. That passivity leads to increased strikeouts, but also plenty of walks, as Biggio took a free pass 15.5% of the time last season, which ranked in the top 8 percent of baseball. Despite not making consistently strong contact, Biggio has hit 24 home runs in his 159 major league games, and he's added on 107 runs and 20 steals. Those numbers play extremely well for fantasy, particularly at the weak second base position. Biggio is likely to add third base eligibility with the Blue Jays' addition of Marcus Semien, which should only add to his value, and he makes a fine pick if you can nab him in the fifth round or so where his ADP generally lands.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Moncada had a very rough 2019 after dealing with Covid, and now is dealing with some arm soreness. Luckily the injury does not seem to bad. His ADP has dropped several rounds since last season and if he gets back into form, he will make those who passed on him look silly. He is not someone I am targeting in every single draft because spring training injuries are tough to gauge, but I have my fair share of Moncada.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Too many holes in Biggio's batting profile for me to draft him at his inflated ADP. It also looks like he will open the season batting 7th which is not ideal as I do not see him hitting his way into a top 3 spot in the order.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
  Biggio has posted elite walk rates in his first two seasons in the majors and he's 20-for-20 in stolen base attempts to begin his career. This makes him a useful player in several formats, raising his floor. However, his batted ball data is admittedly worrisome, and his profile looks like the type that could be affected by a deadened ball this season. Further complicating the situation is the Blue Jays' offseason addition of Marcus Semien, leaving Biggio without a true defensive home on the roster. There's enough downside here for me to be fading him at his current ADP.
