Ben Simmons is the Rookie of the Year front-runner, but among 2017 draftees, Tatum has been at the head of the class. And Boston might end up with a high lottery pick from the Lakers (or Kings) for their troubles in moving back.

Judge, 25, played down the impact of his shoulder issues during his slump that began the second half, but there was suspicion that the shoulder could be bothering him. In the first half, Judge hit .329 with 30 homers and 66 RBIs. He capped it off by winning the Home Run Derby.
In the first 44 games of the second half, Judge hit just .179. In September, though, he got hot again, belting 15 homers and batting .311. Judge finished the regular season with 114 RBIs.
