Cubs | Anthony Rizzo laboring

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 16:30:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo (undisclosed) was grimacing on a swing-and-miss in the first inning Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo was hit on the right forearm by a pitch Friday, and has it wrapped up. It's something to watch and could require a day off in the near future to rest.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo heating back up

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:12:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is batting .357 (10-for-28) with four homers, two doubles, and six RBI over his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is proving his first-round draft billing this spring and delivering huge fantasy stats. FantasyScore players can turn to Rizzo with confidence in the majority of matchups, especially when he is dialed in at the plate.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo good on the road

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 11:21:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo had four multi-hit games in his last five road games, hitting .381 (8-for-21) with a 1.457 OPS during that stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is hitting .336 (48-for-143) with 11 of his 15 home runs on the road this year. On Monday he and the Cubs are home to face Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers. It's a game to avoid Rizzo on FantasyScore, as it'll likely be very tough for him to return value.

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 20:42:19 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in a 7-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has three home runs in his last three games after going nine straight without a homer. He has hit 13 of his 14 home runs against righties this year, and he could be worth paying up for Saturday against right-hander Trevor May.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo slumping hard

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 22:12:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo was hitless in three at-bats with a walk Tuesday, June 16, against the Cleveland Indians. He is now 1-for-21 over his past six games.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,100; or 12.2% of cap) is way overpriced in FantasyScore since he is slumping so hard. Wait to see him start showing more consistency at the dish before trusting him again.

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is 2-for-18 (.111) lifetime against Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto, whom he faces Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is a stud that can mash against anyone, but today might be a day to pass on him on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo likes facing Cincy

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 12:59:02 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo has a slash line of .356/.495/.808 with 10 home runs in 21 career games against the Cincinnati Reds dating back to the start of last year. Rizzo and the Cubs start a series with the Reds this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) continues to be a strong FantasyScore play, especially because of how often he reaches base other than hits. Against Reds starter Michael Lorenzen tonight, Rizzo once again should be an excellent pick for daily lineups.
