RF,DH - PHI
Expert NoteView More Notes
In 157 games in Harper's first year with the Phillies, he batted .260 with 35 home runs, 98 runs, 114 RBI, and 15 steals. In 2020, his 157-game pace was .268 with 35 home runs, 111 runs, 89 RBI, and 21 steals. In other words, Harper provides an incredibly safe baseline now with Philadelphia, and fantasy managers can expect roughly 35 home runs, 15-20 steals, and 220 combined runs and RBI. There were some gains for Harper in 2020, as he walked more and struck out less than he ever had in his career, and hit the ball as hard as ever. But there's no reason to expect much growth in Harper's surface numbers at this point. Take the incredibly high floor in the second round and be happy with it.

Bryce Harper fought through a back injury last season
Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper says he feels no pain this spring after fighting through a back injury in 2020.
“I probably shouldn’t be stealing bags in spring training, you know what I’m saying?” Harper said. “The thing is I’ve always tried to come to spring hitting the ground running and ready to go. And now this year it’s kind of just, you know, we’ll get into it when I need to. And then once I’m ready to go, I’m ready to go. But at this point right now, I feel no pain. I feel good, I feel strong, and I feel ready to go.” The 28-year-old was able to have a big fantasy season despite the lingering issue last year, and his expected stats were even more encouraging. If he stays healthy in 2021 Harper could perform as a legitimate first-round bat for fantasy purposes.
