Freddie Freeman News
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman (illness) is back in the starting lineup on Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals. The All-Star first baseman missed Saturday's game with an illness but he's good to go on Sunday. Freeman is having a great first season with the Dodgers, slashing .328/.405/.516 with 20 long balls, 94 RBI, and 12 stolen bases over 579 at-bats.
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman (illness) was scratched from the starting lineup Saturday due to an illness. There is a chance that this illness is also the reason he missed yesterday's game, but since he was originally in the lineup today it seems like he is progressing towards a return to the lineup soon. It is unfortunate timing for fantasy managers who are in head-to-head playoffs this week, but for those playing next week he should be able to contribute. Freeman has been otherworldly once again this season, batting .328 with 20 homers, 110 runs, 94 RBI, and 12 steals to top it off. He was well worth his late first/early second round pick.
Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman is not in the starting lineup Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals. It is just a routine day off for Freeman, who has only missed one game this season prior to Friday's contest. With the Dodgers set to clinch the top seed soon, expect the team to give their regulars quite a bit of rest heading into the postseason. Freeman has been tremendous all season, but has pushed his game to another level as of late. In September, he is slashing .347/.455/.542 with four homers, 18 runs, and 13 RBI. Obviously, fantasy managers in daily leagues will want to get him back in their lineup tomorrow, assuming he plays. He will be a borderline first-round pick again next season.
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.
