Matt Olson – Fantasy Baseball Trading Objectives, Buy, Sell (Week 7)

Matt Olson Fantasy Baseball Rankings MLB Injuries DFS Lineup Picks

BALLER MOVE: Buy Matt Olson

ANALYSIS: It looks like Matt Olson’s slow spring training is dragging into the regular season. After hitting .159 (7-for-44) with a single home run over 19 Grapefruit League games, Olson launched three home runs through his first eight regular-season games. He’s now slashing a dismal .159/.293/.216 with four extra base hits and eight RBI during his current 25-game homer-less drought.

It comes in the wake of Olson’s MLB-leading 54-homer, 139-RBI campaign a year ago, which opened a clear buy-low window for fantasy purposes.

Despite the cold snap, the 30-year-old two-time All-Star is still taking plenty of walks (12.6% BB%) and ranks in the 99th percentile of Statcast with a blistering average exit velocity of 93 mph and a hard speed of 57, 6%. -hit percentage. Not to mention its stark contrasts in BA (.198) and xBA (.256), SLG (.355) and xSLG (.455), plus wOBA (.300) and xwOBA (.363).

After Wednesday’s series finale against the Boston Red Sox, his buy-low window could close during a three-game weekend against the division rival New York Mets at Citi Field. In seven games against the Mets on the road since 2023, Olson is hitting a blistering .346 (9-for-26) with four long balls, nine RBI, eleven runs scored and six walks. Based on Statcast metrics, Olson is neck-and-neck with Yordan Alvarez as the most obvious buy-low candidates among the game’s leading sluggers.
