Since before draft season began, we've been providing looks into our 2020 Rotoworld Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide to help give you the knowledge you need to make smarter decisions when your league's draft rolls around.

Complete with content covering various league types — from projections and rankings to tiers, ADP reports, mock drafts and exclusive expert columns — this year's edition is the finest we've ever produced and will prove to be an essential tool on draft day.

With MLB’s Opening Day still unknown, we're offering a look at our adjusted player projections, specifically at third base, now updated to reflect two-thirds of a full season being played.

Have a look:

 

TIER 3

Manny Machado (R) - SD

Jonathan Villar (B) - MIA

Tommy Edman (B) - STL

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (R) - TOR

Matt Chapman (R) - OAK

Jeff McNeil (L) - NYM

Josh Donaldson (R) - MIN

Eugenio Suarez (R) - CIN

Kris Bryant (R) - CHI

At the hot corner, high-level fantasy upside can be found beyond the first two tiers. Villar posted 24 home runs and 40 stolen bases in 162 games last season with the Orioles, though his power totals may take a hit with the move from Camden Yards in Baltimore to Marlins Park in Miami. Vlad Jr. largely disappointed as a rookie, but he could be ready to turn it on as a 21-year-old sophomore. Suarez placed second on the MLB home run leaderboard last year with 49.
