Player Outlook
Austin Riley and Ohtani are the only two players in baseball with at least 30 homers, 90 runs, and 90 RBIs in each of the past three seasons. Whereas Ohtani has had to do a lot of the heavy lifting on his club in previous seasons, Riley is just one very well-positioned player in the lineup with Acuna Jr and Albies in front of him and Olson behind him in the lineup. The presence of speed in front of him allows him to see a lot of fastballs, and he hit 22 of them for homers along with a .290 average. Getting on base in front of Olson and Ozuna is how someone with slightly better than average speed scored 117 runs, exceeding his previous career high by 26 runs. We see no reason why Riley cannot keep his 30/90/90 streak going another season as nothing is changing in the powerful Atlanta offense in 2024. Riley is not going to help you in the running game, but that is the only true flaw in his fantasy vitae as he heads into his peak power production years at the hot corner.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Salvages day with late homer

    Riley went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks. After striking out in two of his first three at-bats, RIley came through for Atlanta with a two-run shot to give the team three runs of cushion heading into the ninth. He hasn't exactly been lighting up the box score in 2024, but Riley has consistently been one of baseball's best bats at the third-base position and should once again push for 30-plus homers.

Riley has averaged 36 homers and 99 RBI over the last three seasons while missing only eight total games, making him one of the most dependable fantasy options available at the hot corner.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Sitting for Game 1

    Riley is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader at Washington, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. The 26-year-old started the past 14 games after sitting out a couple contests due to an illness in early September, and he'll take a seat for Sunday's matinee after he posted a 1.017 OPS with three homers, 11 RBI and 10 runs during that 14-game stretch. Luke Williams will handle the hot corner in Game 1 with Riley likely to be back in the starting nine for the nightcap.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Goes deep in victory

    Riley went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 8-7 win against the Dodgers. Riley accounted for the final run in a six-run second inning for Atlanta with his solo shot to center field.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Belts 31st long ball

    Riley went 2-for-5 with a home run, a walk, two total runs and three total RBI in a 14-4 victory versus Colorado on Monday. Riley opened the scoring for Atlanta with his two-run shot to right field in the third inning, and he tacked on an RBI single in the seventh. The long ball was his second over his past three contests following a nine-game stretch during which he went just 6-for-33 without any homers. While Riley has been overshadowed by the MVP-level seasons of teammates Ronald Acuna and Matt Olson, he's performed very well in his own right, reaching the 30-homer mark for the third straight campaign while tallying 81 RBI, three steals and a .274/.336/.504 slash line over 578 plate appearances.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Reaches 30-homer plateau

    Riley went 1-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Giants. The third baseman turned on a first-pitch fastball from Sean Manaea in the fifth inning and crushed it to left field, snapping a brief nine-game homer drought. The streaky Riley is slashing .278/.345/.515 in August with six long balls and 14 RBI, and he's now reached 30 home runs for the third straight season. His career high is 38, set last year, and with 34 games left on Atlanta's schedule, Riley will likely need at least one more heater to get there.

  • Braves' Austin Riley: Rare steal Sunday

The third baseman is slashing .304/.360/.557 through 19 games in August with five home runs, 13 RBI and 14 runs, and he sits one long ball short of his third straight 30-homer campaign.

The third baseman has been on a big tear of late, hitting safely in 14 of his last 15 games with 10 home runs over that span. Riley's OPS for the season is up to .843, and while he may not receive down-ballot MVP votes this year like he did in 2021 and 2022, he's likely to be a part of that conversation again down the road.

Riley is riding a nice hot streak at the plate and he's now homered in three consecutive games, driving in 11 runs over that stretch.
