Boston Uprising kicked off the Overwatch League free-agency period with a bang, announcing a star-studded 2023 roster.

The Dallas Fuel operated on cruise control in 2022, winning 20 of its 24 regular season contests before winning the league title. Dallas put a target on its back, motivating teams to re-evaluate their rosters drastically.

From December 23 through March 13, Overwatch League franchises can cobble together new-look squads during free agency. After failing to qualify, for the 2022 Playoffs, Boston Uprising made the most of its opportunity, rolling out a stacked roster.
