Who deserves the No. 1 spot, the No. 1 pick that all fantasy managers would leap for if given the chance? It might have been the electrifying Fernando Tatis Jr. in early March, but that changed when he suffered a wrist fracture that could sideline him for three months.

At this point, speed merchant Trea Turner has emerged as the clear consensus top choice in drafts. Being part of the powerhouse Dodgers' lineup couple with his ability to contribute across all categories has our experts in lockstep.

While there's agreement at the very top, there are still plenty of draft questions to answer. Who should go No. 2? Who should be the first pitcher taken between the former Cy Young winners, Gerrit Cole or Corbin Burnes?

Should home run king Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hold claim to a top-5 spot in drafts? Will Ronald Acuna Jr. — already a perennial first-rounder at the tender age of 24 — fall after suffering a devastating injury in 2021?
