Rafael Devers is one of the best players in baseball who seems consistently overlooked in fantasy circles. Perhaps that will change in 2023, though he will be playing in one of the least fearsome Boston lineups of his career. Gone are Xander Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez, so Devers will rely on Trevor Story, international signing Masataka Yoshida, Kike Hernandez, and others to boost his runs and RBI, which fell below 100 for the first time in 2022. As a fantasy player, Devers has all of the skills managers would ask for in a third baseman. He mashes the ball, gets on base, and is a four-category player in a friendly ballpark. He also now has the security of an 11-year, $331 million contract to stay with the only team he's been on, though whether or not that impacts his performance remains to be seen.

Rafael Devers and the Boston Red Sox are finalizing an 11-year, $331 million contract extension. The deal is still pending a physical.

Fantasy Impact

The Red Sox are finally able to lock down the 26-year-old superstar third baseman. He had what was likely his best season in 2022, slashing .295/.358/.521 with 27 HRs and a 141 wRC+. He should continue to be the centerpiece of the Red Sox offense and a top-tier hitter in fantasy for many years to come.
