Marcell Ozuna is headed back to Atlanta:

Fantasy Impact

Ozuna’s re-signing means the Atlanta offense is a top five unit in 2021 if everything breaks right. This Atlanta team took the mighty Dodgers to Game 7 of the NLCS, despite not having the services of their ace, one Mike Soroka. And not that you were banking on the likes of Ender Inciarte, but the outfield would now appear to be fixed (Ozuna-Pache-Acuña) unless we FINALLY hear word of the universal DH.

Ozuna’s ADP is currently 54.29 per recent NFBC Draft Champions data. But during the winter months of October through December—before his free agency likely scared drafters off a tad—he was selected around pick 44 on average. I expect him to begin being drafted in the Eloy Jimenez range once again, and Jimenez has a current ADP right around 36. That’s right, folks. Get ready to open up those wallets for last year’s NL home run leader. Ozuna also topped the NL in plate appearances, total bases, and RBI. He’ll be a fantasy baseball monster in Atlanta.
