Freddie Freeman News
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Washington Nationals. It was nice to see a pulse at the plate, as Freeman was 0-for-9 during the Braves opening series. Despite the slow start, the 2020 NL MVP remains one of the best hitters in the game. Expect Freeman, and the rest of the Braves lineup, to produce at a higher level in the near future.
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman had a rough opening series against the Philadelphia Phillies. He went 0-for-9 as the Phillies completed a three-game sweep. On the bright side, he walked three times and only struck out once. Freeman is one of the game's best overall hitters and he's locked into the three-spot in one of the league's most potent lineups. Last year, Freeman slashed .341/.462/.640 with 13 home runs, 53 RBI and 51 runs over 60 games. Look for him to get back on track soon. The Braves will begin their second series against Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals on Tuesday.
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman continues to struggle this spring. Freeman has just three hits in 29 plate appearances- and no home runs- though he does have a nice 7-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 games. However, fantasy managers should not worry about the 31-year-old, as his track record speaks for itself. Over his last seven full seasons, Freeman has averaged 149 games played, 91 runs scored, 26 home runs, 88 RBI, 77 walks, and a .297 batting average. He's a durable, four-category producer slated to bat in the heart of the order for a strong Braves' lineup. Don't hesitate to take him at the end of the first or start of the second round.
Freeman has been one of the league's best hitters since his first full season in 2011, and there's no reason to expect that to change in 2021. As excellent as Freeman was in 2020 -- and he was excellent, posting a 186 OPS+ that ranked behind only Juan Soto for the league lead -- he's done this kind of thing before. From the middle of the 2016 season to the beginning of the 2017 season, the 60-game rolling average of Freeman's OPS got up to a whopping 1.281! And the primary underlying drivers of Freeman's exceptional 2020 -- better than usual plate discipline, contact skills, and power -- have had 2020-esque peaks in the past as well. Freeman will almost certainly cool off in 2021 as his 17.2% walk rate and locked-in plate approach are probably unsustainable, but the 31-year-old heads into the 2021 season as one of the safest fantasy options with the upside to be a top-five fantasy asset, and his 13 ADP is fair as a result.
