The Braves' new slugger posted career highs across the board last season - 39 HRs, 111, RBI, 101 runs and a .271 BA - and as he enters his age-28 season, he should be in his prime. The elite power is here to stay, and after batting .195 in the shortened 2020 season, Olson made huge strides in his contact rate (80%) last year and batted a very respectable .271. Going from Oakland to the Braves' friendlier ballpark could spike his HR total. Olson is a worthy power anchor.

Matt Olson claps home run on Wednesday

Matt Olson went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI during Atlanta's loss to Miami on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Olson smashed a 104.5 mph, 402 ft. home run in the seventh inning to score Vaughn Grissom and get the Braves to within two runs. He's been on an absolute tear leading into the postseason collecting six home runs over his last nine games while driving in 12 over that span. Olson will end his regular season with a decent .240/.325/.477 slash line with an excellent 34 home runs and 103 RBI through 616 at-bats.
