The fantasy community largely gave up on Swanson after hitting .235 with 20 combined home runs in 2017 and 2018. Perhaps the former No. 1 pick isn't a finished product at age 25. He has 17 long balls - already surpassing last season's career high of 14 -- and seven steals with noticeable rises in exit velocity and hard hits. Batting second in the Braves' lineup is also a major boon to his value, as he has 64 runs and 57 RBIs. With a .278 xBA and 20.4% strikeout rate, he could keep improving his .265 batting average as the ultimate post-hype lottery ticket. After going on the IL with a heel injury on July 27, retroactive to July 24, he was initially expected to miss the minimum 10 days. He now is unlikely to come back until September, so managers in shallow mixed leagues could drop him if needing the spot.

You may not believe in the breakout, but every underlying metric suggests Swanson's breakout has been legitimate after years of disappointing optimistic fantasy owners. He should finish the year with 25 homers, a dozen steals and a solid batting average to go with loads of RBIs and runs.

Swanson was generally perceived as a glove-first prospect, but he is having a big year with the bat in his age-25 season. He's on pace to approach 30 homers and 15 steals, and Statcast data suggests he's actually been a bit unlucky to only be hitting around .270 given the quality of contact he's been making.
