Freddie Freeman News
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman cracked a tie-breaking solo home run during the sixth inning in a 2-1 victory over San Diego on Tuesday. He also added a single, going 2-for-4 in the contest. The Villa Park, California native now has 22 dingers with 55 RBI in 345 at-bats. Freeman keeps getting better and better as the season progresses, recording 22 hits in his last 54 at-bats. In his past 21 games, the first baseman carries an impressive .427 batting average with six home runs. Fantasy managers who have Freddie Freeman in their lineup should be pleased with the progression he has made as the season continues to move forward.
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has been seemingly impossible to get out at the plate over the last month or so. On Saturday, Freeman went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the 9-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. It wasn't too long ago that Freeman was hitting around .240 on the season. Now, Freeman has improved his batting average to .285 and has been arguably the hottest hitter over the last month.
Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman did not let the All-Star break slow him down at the plate. On Friday, Freeman went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, and a stolen base as well. Sadly, it wasn't enough to help lead the Braves to victory as they fell 7-6 to the Tampa Bay Rays. Despite that, Freeman continues his hot streak and has raised his slash line to .281/.387/.503 with 20 homers and 52 RBI this season. Fantasy managers who were patient with Freeman are certainly getting rewarded now.
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.
