Austin Riley Powers Braves to Narrow Victory

Austin Riley went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Braves' 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a crucial home run, contributing significantly to the team's narrow victory. This season, Riley has been somewhat inconsistent with a .253 batting average and 12 homers over 76 games, which might concern fantasy managers looking for more steady production. However, his ability to impact the game with power (12 home runs and 38 RBI) keeps him relevant in fantasy lineups, especially in formats that value extra-base hits and RBIs.

Austin Riley swings big but Braves fall short

Austin Riley went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the Braves' 8-6 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the team's defeat, Riley's performance was a bright spot as he contributed significantly with his 11th homer of the season and a walk. His season-long batting average sits at .255, and while his power numbers are respectable, his high strikeout rate (0.230) continues to be a concern for fantasy managers. However, his ability to drive in runs (37 RBI in 73 games) and score (45 runs) keeps him relevant in most fantasy formats. Moving forward, maintaining a more consistent contact rate could greatly enhance his value, especially if he can leverage his power more frequently.

Austin Riley powers Braves past Pirates

Austin Riley went 1-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in the Braves' 6-1 victory over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

His solo shot contributed significantly to the team's win, marking his ninth homer of the season. Despite a modest .252 batting average this year, Riley's power numbers remain a bright spot. However, his high strikeout rate of .235 and relatively low walk rate of .084 suggest some volatility in his performance. Fantasy managers should value Riley for his ability to drive in runs and score, but be wary of potential slumps due to his inconsistency at the plate. His current wOBA of .326 indicates he's producing at a decent clip, making him a solid option in most fantasy formats, especially in leagues that value power hitting.

Austin Riley Shines Despite Braves' Narrow Loss

Austin Riley went 2-for-4 with a home run and an RBI in the Braves' 4-3 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

His performance included a crucial home run, contributing significantly to the Braves' offense in a tightly contested game. Despite the loss, Riley's ability to connect for his eighth homer of the season is a positive takeaway for fantasy managers. His batting average sits at .251 through 63 games, showing room for improvement, but his power numbers are solid. Riley's consistent power production, evidenced by his slugging stats, should keep him relevant in fantasy lineups, especially in leagues that value extra-base hits and RBIs.

Austin Riley powers Braves past Yankees, 8-1

Austin Riley had a productive outing in the Braves' dominant 8-1 victory over the Yankees, going 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored, and an RBI.

Fantasy Impact

He also drew two walks, showcasing his ability to reach base effectively. Riley's performance, highlighted by his seventh homer of the season, offers a glimmer of hope for fantasy managers who have been concerned about his modest .251 batting average and relatively low power numbers this season. With a solid .324 wOBA but an underwhelming .309 BABIP, there's potential for Riley to improve as the season progresses, especially if he continues to capitalize on scoring opportunities like he did in this game. His ability to combine power with on-base skills should keep him relevant in most fantasy formats.
