2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 2018 season was a fun one for Camargo and his managers, but that season has been the one shining moment for him in a four-year career that has seen a statistical freefall the past two seasons. After that peak in 2018, Camargo's offensive output has severely tapered off to where he has become a below-average offensive producer. This past season was marred by impatience at the plate not seen since his rookie season of 2017 and the worst strikeout rate, by far, of his career. Expected stats validate his actual performance with the only area of upside being his defense, as he is an excellent defender with positional flexibility at second and third base for 2021 drafts. Do not let that positional flexibility suck you in to doing anything other than spending an endgame pick on him in NL-only formats, because the upside in his offense is very tough to see.

Stat Review
How does Johan Camargo compare to other hitters?
This section compares his stats with all batting seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 400 plate appearances)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank.

* Exit Velocity and Barrels/PA % are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 400 PA) and Hard Hit Rate is benchmarked against last season's data (min 400 PA). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Camargo went from being 16% better than league average at the plate by wRC+ in 2018 to 33% worse than league average in 2019. After the Braves signed Josh Donaldson last winter, the team said Camargo was slated for a "Marwin Gonzalez-type role," and indeed he did play semi-regularly early on. However, he simply could not get going at any point, his playing time dwindled and Atlanta demoted Camargo for a couple weeks at the end of August. He made more consistent contact in 2019, lowering his strikeout rate to 17.3%, but walked less and the quality of his connections deteriorated. His hard-hit rate was in the bottom 30% of the league and he had only seven barrels among 190 batted-ball events. Granted, Camargo was never lighting up the Statcast leaderboards even when things were going well. Assuming he's fully over the fractured shin that ended his 2019, Camargo should be back as the team's top utility man.
Even after Camargo hit close to .300 over 82 games as a 23-year-old in 2017, few were excited about his prospects heading into spring training last year. A back/oblique issue popped up in mid-March and forced Camargo to the DL to start the season, taking him off the mixed-league radar almost entirely. Once he turned the page on that injury, he was quite good, finishing with more earned value than the likes of Justin Turner, Rafael Devers or Kyle Seager at third base. He was 15% better than league average at the dish with a near-double-digit walk rate and .185 ISO, and was a significant plus on defense. Camargo raised his flyball rate close to five percentage points to 35.4% and increased his hard-hit rate, though he had just a 19.8% line-drive rate and 16.5% infield-flyball rate, making the average seem unsustainable. Still, Camargo established himself and he is expected to maintain a sizable role even after the addition of Josh Donaldson.
Injuries at third base and a disappointing sophomore campaign from Dansby Swanson opened the door for Camargo to appear in 82 games on the left side of the infield for the Braves last season. A 24-year-old switch-hitter, Camargo's defensive versatility is his greatest asset as he attempts to carve out a role with Atlanta in 2018. If the organization forgoes adding a veteran stopgap at the hot corner to bridge the gap to prospect Austin Riley, Camargo may wind up in a competition with Rio Ruiz for playing time throughout the season. Thus far, Camargo hasn't shown much home-run power, but it's worth noting that he showed doubles power with the Braves and slugged .452, after failing to slug above .380 in his previous four seasons in the minors. The lack of homers, steals and walks will make his fantasy appeal hinge entirely on his lineup placement and his ability to hit for average.
