Philadelphia Phillies DFS SPIN
Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored on Saturday in a loss to the Braves. Harper's solo shot off of Ian Anderson in the sixth gave the Braves a 4-3 lead. It's the first homer of the year for the former MVP, and probably not the last. The 28-year-old has begin 2021 on a solid note with a .282/.471/.440 line, and fantasy managers should expect that slugging percentage to go up as the season gets deeper.
Atlanta Braves DFS SPIN
Ronald Acuña went 2-for-4 with a double on Saturday in a victory over the Phillies. Acuña also scored a run, coming around to score on an Ozzie Albies double in the first inning. That's the fifth two-bagger of the year for the 23-year-old, and the superstar has been scorching hot as of late with the bat. Drafted with the first-overall pick in a substantial number of leagues, fantasy managers are likely not complaining about a .406/.441/.844 slash to begin the year with three homers and two steals in the first eight games of the year. They shouldn't be, anyway.
