Now for the collections:

Round 1 Pick 1: Three Turner, SS, Philadelphia Phillies

He’s hit .311 over the last four seasons with elite speed, power and performance – the perfect fantasy profile. — Berens

Round 1 Pick 2: Ronald Koynage Jr., OF, Atlanta Braves

Acuña Jr. already has a nearly 40/40 season under his belt and has just turned 25. — Berens

Round 1 Pick 3: Jose Ramirez, 3B, Cleveland Guardians

Ramirez has now firmly established himself as a player who finishes among the category leaders in four of the five standard fantasy stats. — Berens

Round 1 Pick 4: Aaron Judge, HF, New York Yankees

It goes without saying that the guy who finished the season with 62 homers is a worthy pick almost anywhere in the first round. — Berens

Round 1 Pick 5: Julio Rodriguez, HF, Seattle Mariners

Super-soph brings category juice, undiscovered benefits and fun. — Pyanovsky

Round 1 Pick 6: Kyle Tucker, HF, Houston Astros

We still haven’t seen his best season yet. Advantage – MVP AL. Probably a grabber with five categories. — Pyanovsky

Round 1 Pick 7: Mookie Betts, OF/2B, Los Angeles Dodgers

I know top is a funny word, but gender matters too. When did Mookie Betts let you down? He is the favorite to lead the Majors in points. — Pyanovsky

Round 1 Pick 8: Jordan Alvarez, HF, Houston Astros

Not a runner, but the rest of his Statcast page is superbly pinned to the right. As silly as Alvarez’s stats were last year, he was actually Andlucky. If that luck balances out, he can break the game. — Pyanovsky

[2023 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: C | 1B | 2B | 3B | SS | OF | SP | RP]

Round 1 Pick 9: Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., 1B, Toronto Blue Jays

Vlad is only 23 years old and is the favorite to lead MLB in batting average and will benefit from Toronto’s new park sizes. — From the Don

Round 1 Pick 10: Shohei Otani, UTIL, Los Angeles Angels

There are fears that he will stop running and he is only UTIL, but Ohtani’s bat is good enough to go here no matter what. — From the Don

Round 1 Pick 11: Beau Bichette, SS, Toronto Blue Jays

He is only 24 years old and Bichette said he wants to run more in 2023 and he will also get a big boost from Toronto moving within its limits. — From the Don

Round 1 pick 12: Gerrit Cole, SP, New York Yankees

He was incredibly unlucky last year for several reasons, and in 2023 he should be the top fantasy pitcher again. — From the Don
