Cubs | Anthony Rizzo drives in six

Sat, 23 May 2015 22:39:44 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-5 with one home run, a run and six RBI Saturday, May 23, at the Arizona Diamondbacks. Rizzo hit a game-winning, three-run home run in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is hitting .300 in his last 10 at-bats after a mini-slump of 1-for-13 in his prior four games. Rizzo is finding his stroke against the Diamondbacks and should be a fine play in FantasyScore Sunday, May 24.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo on hot streak

Tue, 12 May 2015 11:59:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is 11-for-30 (.367) with three home runs, three doubles and seven RBI in his last seven games, and he's a .324 hitter in nine career home games against the New York Mets. Rizzo hit his fifth home run in the last 10 games Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is hitting .327 (37-for-113) with seven home runs and 19 RBI on the season, and he continues to draw plenty of walks, as well. Even against hot Mets prospect Noah Syndergaard, who is making his major league debut tonight, Rizzo is a strong FantasyScore option, especially while his bat is red hot.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo continues torrid May

Tue, 12 May 2015 05:14:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo had a home run Monday, May 11, in a 4-3 win over the New York Mets. Rizzo is hitting .333 in 11 May games with five home runs and 10 runs batted in.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) should be started in daily leagues and other formats as long as that bat stays warm. The wind was blowing out at Wrigley Field on Monday, and this could be a sign of even better things to come for the all-star slugger.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo hot

Wed, 06 May 2015 11:58:19 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo leads the majors with a .473 on-base percentage and has reached base safely in 14 straight games going back to April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is also hitting .333 (29-for-87) with four home runs and 14 RBI, so he'll remain a very strong option for FantasyScore owners and likely will for most of the season.

Cubs | Junior Lake hitting cleanup

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:55:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is hitting cleanup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tyler Lyons Tuesday, May 5. 1B Anthony Rizzo is hitting second, with 3B Kris Bryant moving up a spot into third in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), Rizzo ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) and Bryant ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) should all be looked at as strong FantasyScore plays this evening while Lyons make his season debut in the Red Birds' rotation tonight.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo swiping bags

Mon, 04 May 2015 23:57:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo stole his career-high seventh base Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: The added dimension is a pleasant surprise for Rizzo, who could be among the top three or four at the position at season's end. At $5,400 (10.8% of your cap), he's a daily consideration on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo hitting second

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:29:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is hitting second Thursday, April 23, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,500, 11.0% of your cap) has 10 walks in 47 at-bats thus far, so maybe it's a move to give him a chance to see more pitches to hit. He has a .319-1-5 line to open the season, but the move takes away some RBI potential. He's still an elite first baseman option on FantasyScore.
