Collette Calls: Duvall Deep Dive

Collette Calls: Duvall Deep Dive

This article is part of our Collette Calls series.

As play begins Sept. 25, Adam Duvall leads the National League with 111 runs driven in. Re-read that sentence again while reflecting on the improbability of that statement and soak it all in. Heck, three current Atlanta hitters are in the top five in RBIs in the National League, which is rather amazing considering the losses of both Ronald Acuna Jr and Marcell Ozuna from that lineup this season. Duvall rediscovered himself in Atlanta in a parti-time role in 2019 before flourishing in the shortened 2020 season, but Atlanta's roster got crowded and the club decided to let Duvall take his talents to South Beach. The aforementioned injuries led to Atlanta needing to reacquire Duvall's skills at the trade deadline, and his run production has helped fuel Atlanta's summer resurgence into a probable NL East divisional crown.

Entering 2021, Duvall was just one of 35 players with multiple 30 homer seasons from 2016-2019, having done so twice with Cincinnati. Below is the complete list of the multiple 30-homer hitters in that time and their pre-season ADP at NFBC sorted by their ADP:
