Top 300 Fantasy Baseball Rankings - Nick Mariano's Rest-of-Season Outlooks for Jarred Kelenic, Nick Lodolo, Adley Rutschman, more

Adley Rutschman - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Waiver Wire Pickups, MLB News

Welcome back RotoBallers! We are in Week 3 of the fantasy baseball season, so it's time for a rankings check-in. Below you will find Nick Mariano's updated 2023 fantasy baseball rankings and tiers for roto leagues (5x5 mixed leagues) as of April 16, 2023. These rankings are being released in mid-April and are looking at rest-of-season fantasy baseball rankings and player values for the rest of this MLB season from this point going forward.

The shift is banned, and we are headed toward a boom in offense in 2023. It's a small sample size, but homers are way up in 2023 as the ball is flying out of the yard. The average distance on flyballs is up, and homers are on pace to reach 2019 levels when 6,776 long balls were hit that year (671 more than any previous season). New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso and Baltimore Orioles outfielder Ryan Mountcastle lead the majors with six home runs in 2023.

Some players are off to a terrific start, while some have struggled mightily to start the year. Which of these starts do we take seriously, and which do we put less stock into? Is it time to elevate our expectations on certain players and elevate touted prospects into a higher tier for fantasy baseball leagues? How much patience must we show for highly-touted players who have struggled out of the gate, especially veterans with proven track records? Hopefully, the rankings below will give you some perspective on our thoughts on these topics and help you assess the strength of your rosters going forward. Let's see where players such as Jarred Kelenic, Nick Lodolo, Adley Rutschman, Jesus Luzardo, Alec Bohm, and Jordan Walker rank, all of who are off to incredible starts in 2023.

Editor's Note: Our incredible team of writers received 13 award nominations by the Fantasy Sports Writers Association including Baseball Writer of the Year, Football Writers of the Year, Golf Writer of the Year and many more! Be sure to follow their analysis, rankings and advice all year long, and win big with RotoBaller! Read More!

 

Top 300 Fantasy Baseball Rankings - Week 3 Update

These rankings will be updated every week throughout the season, so some of these situations are very fluid. It's not panic time yet, and we may not be ready to elevate hot-starting players into the elite yet, but it's certainly a good checkpoint for the long fantasy season. As always, be sure to stay on top of all of the MLB news with our running list of 24x7 fantasy baseball news and injuries. And if you don't yet have our free mobile app, be sure to download it and stay on top of all the MLB news and analysis with our free push notification alerts.

Nick Mariano's ranks are as of April 13th, 2023. They are for 5x5 category mixed roto leagues, and will be updated regularly on our main fantasy baseball rankings dashboard all season long. Be sure to read our daily fantasy baseball analysis articles as well.
