Latest Update Stanton homers in Marlins victory Mon Sep, 01, 10:55 PM
Has light-tower power, capable of hitting the ball out of any park with aplomb. Can also produce a lot of runs. Is able to play either corner outfield position.
Flaws: : Needs to cut down on his propensity to strike out a lot. Doesn't have much base-stealing acumen to speak of. Can also use a little refinement on defense.
Stanton hit his NL leading 34th home run of the year in a win over the Mets. Stanton has slowed down his last few games, but barring an injury, he has the opportunity to hit 40 long balls on the year to go with an average right around .300 and 100+ RBIs. Start Stanton with confidence as a #1 fantasy outfielder.Analyst: Colby Conway
With Stanton's 33rd home run of the season on Monday, he has now reached 150 home runs for his career, which makes him the third youngest active player to reach that milestone at the age of 24 years and 290 days old. Only Albert Pujols (24 years, 212 days) and Alex Rodriguez (24 years, 255 days) reach the 150 home run club faster. This has been a great season for the Marlins slugger, who is now slashing .299/.407/.566 with 97 RBI to go along with his league-lead in long balls, as he make a serious run for NL MVP consideration.

Really. What more can we say? It's the dream season you've all been wanting to see from him as he's batting .299 with 32 home runs and 92 RBI with still more than a month toplay. We'd love to see a nice home run binge to put him over 40 for the year, but we'll honestly be happy with whatever stat line he finishes with at this point. Guess who jumps into the top-five overall conversation next year?Analyst: Howard Bender
The dream season continues as Stanton hits safely for the fifth consecutive game while adding to his RBI total. He's currently batting .297 with 32 home runs and 89 RBI and withe the right run, say a three-game set in Colorado coming, he could go on a home run tear and pout himself in a spot where he could hit 40 bombs. That's where the hope is, but don't be too disappointed if he doesn't reach that mark. He will soon enough.Analyst: Howard Bender
