I've got a man-crush on Freddie Freeman and followed him all through the minors. But seriously, how many teams are in your fantasy league that you drafted Freeman at 1B? Were AGon, Votto, Pujols, Fielder, Howard, and Teixeira all taken?

I don't think you realize that in fantasy baseball your lineup consists of a 1b a 1b/3b and 3 utility players

There are 8 teams in my league. My strategy was to wait to take a 1B since there are so many quality 1B. I have the best SS and arguably the best 2B (Tulo and Uggla) because those are relatively thin positions and I thought I could make up ground at those positions.

Freeman is a backup 1B. Berkman is my starter and I also have Swisher on the bench. I also have JJ Hardy in the bench at SS and have thought about trading he or Tulo for a 1B, especially since Berkman can also play OF.

I would start freeman over both of those guys

you think freeman will total more fantasy points than berkman and swisher? MAYBE Swisher, but not Berkman if he stays healthy.

Plus, I actually think Freeman might struggle in this, his second season, a little like Heyward did. Not as bad, but I wouldn't be surprised if his numbers weren't as good as they were last year.

That Zimmerman kid is pretty good. I wonder if they'd trade him.

Freeman's upside is currently higher than heywards. He has proven that he has the consistency to perform every year and is continuing that this spring. Berkman had a randomly good season but will not string together what he accomplished last year. Swisher is a disappointment every season
