Fantasy Impact:

Freeman batted .307/.403/.586 with 28 homers and 71 RBI over 117 games last season and is primed for another solid year. He would be a legitimate MVP contender if the Braves were a better squad, and they are getting closer to contending, but still lack a few pieces. If Freeman can stay healthy, he'll be one of the top first basemen for fantasy purposes.
