Tier One analysis

This group comes with the potential for five-category gold. Turner is the no-doubt slam dunk No. 1 option at the shortstop position going into his first season with Philadelphia, though Bichette came on strong down the stretch last year to justify his lofty draft position. Tatis is only going to miss a few weeks as he completes his PED suspension, so be careful about pushing him too far down in your rankings.

Tier Three

Amed Rosario - CLE

Nico Hoerner - CHI

Dansby Swanson - CHI

Jeremy Peña - HOU

Ezequiel Tovar - COL

Javier Baez - DET

Xander Bogaerts - SD

CJ Abrams - WSH

Tier three analysis

It’s getting somewhat murkier at this point, though multiple names from this group make for respectable fantasy shortstops. Swanson and Bogaerts both stand out after their big-money contracts during the offseason. Pena had an up-and-down rookie season, but his stock is on the upswing after an impressive performance during the Astros’ World Series run. Tovar and Abrams provide reason for excitement as they embark on their first full seasons in the majors.
