With MLB Opening Day 2023 scheduled for Thursday, Fantasy baseball owners across the country are scrambling to prepare for their 2023 Fantasy baseball drafts, and it’s already been a hectic spring. The World Baseball Classic concluded last week and two prominent stars will miss significant time after suffering injuries while representing their countries. Mets closer Edwin Diaz suffered a season-ending knee injury while celebrating a Puerto Rico victory and Jose Altuve will miss 8-10 weeks minimum after being hit in the hand while playing for Venezuela.
Altuve has a 2023 Fantasy baseball ADP of 82.42 but has plummeted down draft boards since news of his injury. So where exactly would it be safe to target Altuve and add an MVP-caliber bat for the later stages of the season? A reliable set of 2023 Fantasy baseball rankings can help you make those decisions while also identifying potential 2023 Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts. Before going on the clock in any 2023 Fantasy baseball drafts, be sure to see the Fantasy baseball rankings 2023 and cheat sheets from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Last season, SportsLine’s Projection Model identified several top Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts, including Reds first baseman Joey Votto. The team at SportsLine was all over Votto as a Fantasy bust from the start after a resurgent 2021 season that saw him going as one of the top 12 first basemen off the board in 2022 Fantasy baseball drafts. After slashing .266/.375/.563 with 36 homers and 99 RBI the year prior, Votto slashed .205/.319/.370 with 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in 2022. He finished outside the top 45 players at his position and anybody who followed SportsLine’s advice avoided a major headache.
Their model is powered by the same people who powered projections for all three major Fantasy sites. And that same group is sharing its 2023 Fantasy baseball rankings and cheat sheets over at SportsLine, helping you find Fantasy baseball sleepers, breakouts and busts long before your competition. Their cheat sheets, available for leagues on many major sites, are updated multiple times
