Matt Olson's 2023 season marked a significant improvement over his 2022 performance. His batting average jumped from .240 to .283, and he saw a notable increase in his on-base percentage (OBP), going from .325 to .389. More impressively, Olson's slugging percentage (SLG) spiked to .604, substantially improving from his .477 in 2022. His home run count highlights this surge in power; he smashed 54 homers with 139 RBI, leading all of MLB. Additionally, Olson played in all 162 games for the formidable Atlanta Braves, a role he will return to in 2024. While Freddie Freeman offers better all-around numbers, Olson is the powerful corner infielder worth a second-round pick.

Matt Olson's home run powers Braves to victory

Matt Olson continued his impressive power display on Thursday, launching a home run and driving in two runs as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-3.

Fantasy Impact

Despite recording just one hit in four at-bats, Olson's ability to drive in runs and provide a consistent source of power has been a major asset for fantasy owners this season. With 54 home runs and 136 RBI on the year, Olson has firmly established himself as one of the premier power hitters in the league. While his batting average may not be elite at .281, his ability to produce in key situations makes him a valuable asset in fantasy lineups. Owners should continue to rely on Olson's power production down the stretch.
