Let's make this into a prediction contest... we can use the same scoring as the EPL prediction contest.

Rules: Rank the 8 candidates in the order you think they will finish in the tournament. If you have a person at X, and they finish at Y, you get (ABS(X-Y))/2 points. Lowest score wins.

Tiebreaker: For i = 1 to 8: Compare the ith pick for both players. If they are the same, loop. If they are not the same, whomever picked the person that finished higher in the final standings wins.

My revised picks are below. Everyone can make a change given that MVL is replaced Radjabov.

Caruana
Nepo
Ding
MVL
Grischuk

Hao
Alekseenko

I wonder if they'd ever do a tournament as important as this remotely? Seems like something they might consider if the other option is to cancel entirely / postpone indefinitely. It wouldn't be difficult to have a live feed of the player at all times and a FIDE arbiter present.
