2021 NL East Preview

Participate in free five-minute mock drafts and get real-time live drafting advice with the Fantasy Pros Draft Wizard.

With help from Mike, we will go team-by-team in the NL East.

First, we will discuss the new arrivals for each team. Followed then by the projected lineup according to RosterResource.

Next for each team, we will ask some burning questions that Fantasy Baseball players will want to know the answer to. Below are the questions for each team.

Atlanta Braves

  • Is Freddie Freeman worth his first-round ADP given he helps very little in the speed department?
  • Is Acuna worth the No. 1 overall pick or should the drop in batting average last year put him behind Betts and/or Tatis?
  • Is Max Fried worth his ADP especially given other good pitchers on the team and their ADP?

Miami Marlins

  • Should we buy Pablo Lopez at his price after a really good 2020 or will he regress back to 2019?
  • Sandy Alcantara does not strikeout as many as Lopez, but has been more consistent with his ERA. Who would we rather own?
  • Is Brian Anderson undervalued as a player locked in to give 20 HR?

New York Mets

  • Can Pete Alonso bounceback or are there too many red flags to expect that now?
  • Any concerns with Dominic Smith without a DH in the NL?
  • Can the bullpen not implode this year for the starting pitching, including Edwin Diaz?

Philadelphia Phillies

  • What version of Aaron Nola are we getting in 2020? Is it worth his ADP?
  • Is Bryce Harper undervalued even at ADP of 18? After his slow start in 2019. He has crushed it in Philly since.
  • Are all the additions to the Philly bullpen going to be enough to keep them in games?

Washington Nationals

  • Are the recent injuries to Max Scherzer enough to stay away or should you buy?
  • Can Kyle Schwarber get his groove back in Washington?
  • Is Victor Robles possibly the steal of the draft as he is one year away from 17/28 season?
