Cubs | Anthony Rizzo hitless in playoffs

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 12:11:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is currently 0-for-10 through the first three playoff games. Chicago faces St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha in Game 3 of the National League Division Series Monday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) was one of the most consistent and reliable hitters in fantasy baseball all season, but his year-long owners should remember these mini slumps. The good news for FantasyScore players is Rizzo rarely landed in a prolonged funk, so expect a solid game from the first baseman Monday. He posted a .323/.432/.585 slash line over 81 plate appearances against the Cardinals during the regular season.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo set to shine?

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 12:09:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo, who finished the year with 31 home runs, 101 RBI and an .899 OPS, is 6-for-17 in his career against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole, who he'll face in the wild-card game Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is easily the best at his position for the wild-card round, but you'll have to get creative filling out the rest of your lineup if you select him as one of your studs.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo with a rare off day

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:22:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is taking the day off Monday, Sept. 28. 3B Kris Bryant moves across the diamond to first base, while 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and is hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is a deep sleeper option in daily lineups today with a favorable lineup position. In limited at-bats this year he's hit considerably better against righties (.294-1-9) in 51 of his 55 at-bats.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo hits 30th home run

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 17:51:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo hit his 30th home run of the season against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Sept. 17. He also doubled, walked and drove in two runs.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was only batting .222 (12-for-54) during the month of September entering play Thursday, but he could be showing signs of finally breaking out of his slump. This is his second consecutive season reaching 30 homers and he has already set a career high in RBIs with 92.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo hits slam Friday

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 17:30:25 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-3 with a grand slam against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, Sept. 4. It was his 28th home run of the season and his second career slam.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) homered for the second consecutive game and is hitting .313 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 16 at-bats versus the Diamondbacks this season, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups this weekend.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo has struggled in SF

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:31:16 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo has a career .220 average playing against the San Francisco Giants on the road, and he is 2-for-18 in his career against SP Matt Cain, who he faces Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably safe to ignore Rizzo's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) career numbers in San Fran and against Cain, who has really struggled since his return from the DL this year. The fact that Rizzo is a National League MVP candidate this year says it all, and he remains one of the better first base picks in daily formats.

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is hitting .474 (18-for-39) with four home runs and 12 RBI in his last 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Continue riding the hot hand on FantasyScore. More reason to use Rizzo ($6,200, 12.4% of cap): He has a home run and three RBI in 12 career-at bats against Garza.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo notches four hits

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 19:55:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo went 4-for-5 with two runs and two doubles during the Cubs' 5-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is kicking a funk at the plate and sported a .200/.324/.217 slash line without a home run over the 17 games before Wednesday, July 29. Since, he has gone 12-for-24 with seven runs, three doubles, four home runs and 10 RBI over his past six games. He is a great FantasyScore play while hot.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo struggling at the plate

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 18:41:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo went 0-for-3 in an 11-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday, July 26, and he is 6-for-39 with three RBI since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) still owns solid numbers for the year, but you can't afford to pay his price tag at FantasyScore while he is slumping.
