2021 Fantasy Baseball ROS Rankings

Expert Consensus Ranking (13 of 15 Experts) -

Rank Player (Team, Position) Overall Notes
1 Bryce Harper (PHI - RF,DH) 13 1 1 1.0 0.0 18.0 +5.0
 
2 Kyle Tucker (HOU - LF,RF,DH) 27 2 5 3.0 1.2 35.0 +8.0
 
3 Marcell Ozuna (ATL - LF,DH) 36 2 8 3.8 1.5 42.0 +6.0
 
4 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (TOR - 1B,3B,DH) 41 2 8 4.2 1.7 51.0 +10.0
While it's very early, Guerrero's average launch angle is much higher than it's been in the past so far. The 22-year-old is swinging and missing at a decent clip, but he isn't striking out all that much. Combine that with strong plate discipline and a 99th percentile max exit velocity, and we could be witnessing the full breakout.
5 Pete Alonso (NYM - 1B,DH) 47 3 10 5.7 2.0 46.0 -1.0
 
6 J.D. Martinez (BOS - LF,RF,DH) 55 2 19 6.5 1.7 91.0 +36.0
It's important not to overreact to the opening week of the MLB season, but sometimes you can just tell certain things. JD Martinez appears to be back. Not only are the counting stats there, but the under-the-radar numbers are returning too. Earlier this week JDM had multiple batted balls over 110 mph for the first time since April 2018.
7 Yordan Alvarez (HOU - LF,DH) 60 2 9 6.7 1.7 77.0 +17.0
 
8 Nelson Cruz (MIN - DH) 59 1 9 7.1 1.3 85.0 +26.0
 
9 Giancarlo Stanton (NYY - LF,DH) 74 6 11 9.1 1.3 108.0 +34.0
 
10 Keston Hiura (MIL - 1B,2B,DH) 93 5 18 10.7 3.3 69.0 -24.0
 
11 Josh Bell (WSH - 1B,DH) 120 10 23 13.2 3.6 135.0 +15.0

15 Jorge Soler (KC - RF,DH) 129 8 19 14.7 2.2 141.0 +12.0
 
16 Willson Contreras (CHC - C,DH) 127 11 24 15.9 3.3 117.0 -10.0

21 AJ Pollock (LAD - LF,CF,DH) 181 15 27 21.9 2.9 179.0 -2.0
 
22 Jesse Winker (CIN - LF,CF,RF,DH) 209 19 27 22.6 2.4 230.0 +21.0
 
23 Mark Canha (OAK - 1B,LF,CF,RF,DH) 210 18 27 23.3 2.2 240.0 +30.0
 
24 Ty France (SEA - 2B,3B,DH) 239 20 27 23.7 2.5 250.0 +11.0
 
25 Raimel Tapia (COL - LF,CF,DH) 225 22 29 25.3 2.4 223.0 -2.0
 
26 Christian Walker (ARI - 1B,DH) IL10 223 20 30 25.5 2.7 211.0 -12.0
 
27 Shohei Ohtani (LAA - SP,DH) 137 4 29 13.5 9.3 154.0 +17.0
Not only has Shohei Ohtani recovered from his injuries last season, but the Angels have finally loosened the restrictions on how often they're having him hit. The early returns have been very promising, as the two-way sensation is batting second most nights -- right in front of Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon. In leagues where you need to choose whether to use Ohtani as a hitter or pitcher, it appears as if the value is in his bat right now.
28 Joc Pederson (CHC - 1B,LF,RF,DH) IL10 273 22 36 27.4 4.0 241.0 -32.0
 
29 J.D. Davis (NYM - 3B,LF,DH) 257 23 33 27.4 3.3 268.0 +11.0

31 Jesus Aguilar (MIA - 1B,DH) 332 27 34 30.1 2.2 377.0 +45.0
 
32 David Dahl (TEX - CF,DH,LF,RF) 314 23 36 31.6 2.7 333.0 +19.0
