Fantasy Baseball Stats: Daily All-Stars from April 1


These guys had the best fantasy baseball stats for April 1.

 

Daily Fantasy Baseball MVP

Freddie Freeman — Atlanta Braves

3/32220

Much less of a surprise than yesterday’s, but much like Alejandro De Aza, this wasn’t that controversial.

I guess a skilled debater could argue this one, but they’d have to be really good. Freeman was completely locked in on Tuesday. After a rough opener on Monday, his fantasy owners certainly couldn’t have minded seeing Freeman hitting the ball so well so early in the year.

 

 

Daily Honorable Mentions

1. Carlos Gomez — Milwaukee Brewers

Carlos Gomez: April 1

H/AB

1/22111

If only the rest of his Brewers teammates had done anything at the plate, they might be 2-0 right now. But that doesn’t matter in fantasy baseball.

You never want to put too much stock in the early part of a 162 game season. But based on how good his 2013 season was compared to the rest of his career, Gomez was a pretty natural regression candidate heading into 2014. Seeing him hitting for power and running the bases early on helps ease some of those concerns.

 

2. Brad Miller — Seattle Mariners

Brad Miller: April 1

H/AB

RBI

2/52230

How do you show that you deserve to be hitting in front of Robinson Cano? Well, hitting two bombs is a pretty good way to start.

Miller is owned in fewer than 20 percent of ESPN leagues right now. Again, you don’t want to overreact to the early part of the season too much. One good game out of 162 doesn’t amount to too much. But if an early-season performance like this gets him batting in front of a star batter like Robbie, it can only mean good things.

 

3. Adam Lind — Toronto Blue Jays

Adam Lind: April 1

H/AB
R
HR
RBI
SB
2/31130

There just wasn’t a dominant enough pitching performance to earn a spot on this list. Yasiel Puig and Brandon Belt each could have been here, but they each had an extra at-bat and both made an out with hit, slightly hurting the team batting average of their owners more than Lind’s.

It’s not much of a different but when we’re only looking at a few guys over one day, you’ve got to find something to separate them. Lind gets the nod here.
