Pick No. 1 — Ronald Acuna Jr., OF, Atlanta Braves
Projected 2021 stats: 39 HR, 118 R, 97 RBI, 29 SB, .284 AVG
Selecting No. 1 isn’t as much of a no-brainer as it has been in past years. While you can never go wrong with consistent stars like Mike Trout and Mookie Betts, a new wave of talent has found its away atop draft boards. Ronald Acuna Jr. is just 23 years old, but has already proven to be a fantasy baseball superstar. Until he cleans up his average, Acuna is more of a four-tool contributor — but absolutely excels in what he does best. He’s the most consistent source of power and speed in the league and hits at the top of one of the best lineups in baseball.
