1B - OAK
Expert NoteView More Notes
Olson again hit for a ton of power last year, and ranked in the top nine percent of the league in average exit velocity for the third straight season. But he struck out 31.4% of the time, which contributed to a massive average drop to just .195. Olson had a bit of bad luck, as his xBA was .224, but still, it was by far his worst career mark. Although he'll never be a high average hitter, it's a good bet that he'll return something this year closer to his .245 career mark. Combine that with his likely near-40 home run season, and he'll make a fine mid-round selection and starting first baseman for any fantasy team.

Matt Olson inks one-year deal with the Athletics
1B Matt Olson agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with the Athletics Wednesday.
Olson was expected to be tendered and will remain in Oakland on a one-year deal. He struggled to keep his batting average over the Mendoza line in 2019-20, slashing .195/.310/.424. Olson has elite power as he crushed 14 home runs over 60 games last season. The 27-year-old is an excellent bounce-back candidate for 2021.
