Tiers are an alternate form of rankings that stresses the big picture rather than parsing the details. Alike players are grouped together at each position, thereby denoting the biggest drop-offs within the rankings. This way, you can control for position scarcity in the heat of the draft. The position nearing a drop-off is generally the one you'll want to target.
Below are the second base tiers for 2023, which make clear that drafting a standout will take some effort. The good news is that if you're willing to settle for second-rate production, your options are plentiful later on.
