Guerrero Jr. comes into 2021 with fantasy managers asking the same question they asked the year before: can he stop hitting the ball on the ground so much? A 49.6% ground-ball rate was bad in 2019, but a 54.6% ground ball rate in 2020 was downright egregious. Guerrero Jr. hits the ball really, really hard. He was in the top seven percent of MLB in average exit velocity (92.5 MPH) and hard hit rate (50.8%). But until he learns to stop pounding the ball into the dirt, his power upside will be limited. There will be some fantasy manager in your league willing to bet on the upside, so if you want Guerrero Jr., you're going to have to draft him before his numbers say you should. This may indeed be the year that everything clicks. But you'll have to pay to find out.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could return to third base in 2021

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo isn't ruling out the possibility of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. returning to third base in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Guerrero Jr. made the transition to first base during the shortened 2020 campaign, which was likely a result of him showing up to summer camp out of shape. Guerrero has lost a lot of weight this offseason, however, and appears to be taking his fitness far more seriously entering '21. "Vladito" is on record for wanting to return to the hot corner, and if he continues this new work ethic then he might have a chance at convincing Toronto to let him.
