Fantasy Impact:

Acuna had a monster second half batting leadoff last season, but Snitker believes the budding superstar can do more damage hitting fourth. He’ll be hitting directly behind Josh Donaldson and Freddie Freeman, which should create plenty of RBI opportunities. Snitker also added that Acuna will be free to attempt steals as much as he wants, which is reassuring for fantasy owners who feared he wouldn’t run much if he wasn’t hitting first.
