Muncy's batting average dropped to a ridiculously low .192 last year, and there were two culprits. The first is that his line drive rate plummeted from 23.5% to just 13.8%, leading to far more ground balls. The second was that he simply didn't hit the ball as hard. His hard hit rate and average exit velocity fell, and his HR/FB rate dropped seven points. Muncy dealt with finger and elbow injuries, so those may account for his poor season, but even then he was on pace to reach the 30-homer plateau for a third straight year. Muncy has position eligibility galore, and at the weak second base position, so continue to draft him in the middle rounds as a cheap source of power who adds value thanks to his ability to play all around the infield for your fantasy team.

Max Muncy slugs mammoth HR in Game 5 victory

Max Muncy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk as the Dodgers took down the Rays 4-2 in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Muncy belted a solo bomb off Tyler Glasnow in the top of the fifth inning to put the Dodgers up 4-2, which would prove to be the final score in the game. The first baseman also drew his 20th walk of the playoffs giving him an impressive 20:20 K/BB ratio over 56 at-bats. He's also sporting a .268/.461/.500 batting line with three home runs and 14 RBI.
