Fantasy Baseball Draft SZN has arrived! We are days away from pitchers and catchers reporting, and before you know it Spring Training will be upon us. With a full season on deck this year, we here at NBCSports EDGE could not be more excited for the return of the sweet sound of Mike Trout slugging a long ball.

To celebrate both baseball's return and the launch of our 2021 MLB Draft Guide, we're going to be taking looks at what we have to offer all the way up to Opening Day. With a loaded arsenal of content -- from positional rankings, ADP reports and season-long projections, to mock drafts, projected lineups and draft cheat sheets -- we are as proud as we've ever been of what we've put together and are eager to share it with you in the coming weeks. No matter the format or size of your league, we are confident we can deliver the tools you need to secure that championship hardware.

Let's kick things off with our Overall Rankings for mixed-league, 5x5 formats. These are the best of the best, the all-star sluggers and hurlers who are most likely to fly off the draft board early, and for good reason.

Have a look:

2021 Overall Rankings | Mixed-League | 5x5 Scoring

1) OF Ronald Acuna - ATL 
2) OF Juan Soto - WSH
3) SS Fernando Tatis Jr. - SD
4) SS Trea Turner - WSH
5) SP Jacob deGrom - NYM
6) OF Christian Yelich - MIL
7) SP Shane Bieber - CLE
8) SS Trevor Story - COL
9) OF Mookie Betts - LAD
10) OF Mike Trout - LAA

As you can see, our experts see a bit of a changing of the guard at the elite spots. After incredibly successful 2020 campaigns, young stars Ronald Acuna and Juan Soto have taken hold of the top two.
