Profile: Freeman was already a solid fantasy commodity heading into 2016, but he broke out in a big way last year. The 27-year-old set career highs in home runs, isolated power, walk rate and runs scored, just to name a few. For in-depth analysis on whether Freeman's breakout is sustainable — hint: it probably is — check out Andrew Perpetua's excellent article from October. In short, Freeman's batted-ball profile supports his increased power and batting average on balls in play, and the move to SunTrust Park seems like it should help left-handed power. The top five of Atlanta's lineup — Ender Inciarte, Dansby Swanson, Freeman, Matt Kemp, Nick Markakis — could be pretty strong if things go the Braves' way, so an uptick in R/RBI production from Freeman wouldn't be surprising either.

The Quick Opinion: I'm all aboard the Freddie Freeman breakout hype train, and you should be too. I wouldn't let him fall further than the sixth first baseman selected in standard drafts for 2017. He's not one of the position's truly-elite options, but he's closer than some would realize, and he's a clear step up from the first basemen behind him on draft boards (Hanley Ramirez, Jose Abreu, etc.).
