Fantasy Update: Giancarlo Stanton Now at a 55-Plus Homer Pace

Giancarlo Stanton might not be with the Miami Marlins following the 2017 season, but he's surely putting on a show for fans in Florida. 

Including a three-run shot in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Washington Nationals, the 27-year-old Stanton now leads the Majors with 38 homers on the season. He's also driven in 83 runs in the process. Those 38 homers are now a career high and have him on pace to hit a ridiculous 56 on the season. Stanton is also on pace to drive in what would be a career-best 122 runs. 

To put this into perspective, Stanton's best season came back in 2014 when he hit 37 homers and drove in 105 runs en route to finishing as the runner-up for the NL MVP award. 

While Miami's status as a sub .500 team pretty much eliminates Stanton as an MVP candidate, he's more than proven to be one of the most-elite fantasy players on the diamond.

The righty boasts a .280 average with a .305 BABip against pitchers that toe that side of the rubber. He's also hit over half of his homers away from Marlins Park while boasting a .295 average and .317 BABip away from home. 

Needless to say, Stanton remains an almost certain DFS play on a daily basis, especially when playing on the road against right-handed pitching. Keep that in mind as the MLB regular season draws to a close over the next seven weeks.
