Nick Markakis continues solid contributions at plate Sunday

Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's come from behind 10-9 win over the Marlins in Atlanta. He carries a line of .343/.412/.519 thus far batting fourth in the Braves lineup.

Fantasy Impact

Markakis has been terrific batting fourth, he has certainly exceeded expectations so far. His fantasy value remains strong, he is tied with Mookie Betts and Eugenio Suarez with 32 RBI, he leads MLB with 62 hits, and he's walked 22 times and is ranked 15th in runs scored (31). He is taking advantage of the opportunity that batting fourth brings and while he won't kill you with power, he creates other ways to be productive.

Nick Markakis strikes out twice in win over Miami

Nick Markakis finished 1-for-4 with two strikeouts and a two-out, RBI single in the first inning on Sunday. The Braves continued their winning ways, and improved to 24-15 on the year.

Fantasy Impact

Markakis is making it look easy so far in 2018. He's batting .344/.416/.541 with 54 hits and only 16 strikeouts. The infusion of young talent on the Braves has undoubtedly revived the 13-year veteran, but the numbers don't seem likely to last. There's nothing wrong with riding them while they do though, and owners would be wise to do just that. But be wary if he starts to skid; he can't keep this up all season.
