Fantasy Baseball Draft Targets: Nick Castellanos, Adolis Garcia, Matt Olson (2024)

Fantasy Baseball Draft Targets: Nick Castellanos, Adolis Garcia, Matt Olson (2024)

Which players will be best positioned to drive in runs in 2024? Who can be relied on to come through in those RBI situations?

The group of hitters below, found at different points of fantasy baseball drafts per FantasyPros consensus ADP, have a track record of driving in runs and should get plenty of chances to do so while hitting in some of the game’s deepest lineups.

2024 Fantasy Baseball RBI Targets

Matt Olson (1B – ATL): ADP 16

There may be no better spot to drive in runs than from the heart of the Braves batting order. Matt Olson showed that last year, leading the Majors with a whopping 139 RBI. In fact, no other player was within even 20 RBI of the All-Star slugger. Olson’s monstrous season included a league-leading 54 homers with a .283 AVG, .389 OBP, 14.4 BB% and 55.1 HardHit%. All of those were new-career highs. Barring an unforeseen injury, Olson will drive in a ton of runs once again this season. In the second round, he should be drafted without hesitation.

Adolis Garcia (OF – TEX): ADP 44

Adolis Garcia is not likely to ever hit for a high average; he strikes out a ton. However, he has driven in at least 90 runs in each of the last three seasons. He set new career highs with 39 homers and 107 RBIs in 2023, leading the World Champions in both categories. Garcia will be right back behind the likes of Marcus Semien and Corey Seager in the Rangers’ lineup once again this year. A third straight 100-RBI season for Garcia is quite likely.

Nick Castellanos (OF – PHI): ADP 100

Nick Castellanos really struggled to find a groove during his first year in Philadelphia back in 2022. His second campaign with the Phillies went much better. Castellanos earned his second All-Star selection over the past three years and finished the season with 29 home runs, 37 doubles and a team-high 106 RBIs. Notable upticks in hard-hit rate (+8.4%) and barrel rate (+3.7%) certainly played into Castellanos’ bounce back. He should regularly step to the plate with runners on base this year, as he figures to line up right behind Trea Turner and Bryce Harper.
