Swanson's four-year trend in OPS is .636, .699, .748, and finally .809 last season. There's little to dislike about his profile at this stage in his career. He makes consistently good contact, has improved his launch angle enough to where that contact translates into home runs, and his walk and strikeout rates are strong enough so that his batting average should remain a benefit to fantasy managers. He also ranked in the 90th percentile in sprint speed last season, so he should reach double digits in stolen bases this year, as he had done in the two years prior to 2020's shortened season. In short, Swanson's skill level and output should no longer be in doubt, and he makes a strong starting option at the shortstop position.

Dansby Swanson went 1-for-2 with a double and strikeout in Thursday's game against the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

After they traded for Swanson several years ago the Braves projected him as a #2 hitter, yes, they think highly of him. Barring injuries, this year he will most likely hit from the bottom half of the order. You can discount him for that but he should still post a solid average this year and for years to come. Dansby has proven that he can make adjustments at the plate and continues to show improvement each year.
