Although he's hitting just .247 through 21 games, Goldschmidt has a .935 OPS with five home runs and 15 RBI.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 15 RBI are tied for the team lead, while the five home runs are good for second. Goldschmidt also has an impressive 22:20 BB:K rate. Goldy is a career .298 hitter, so his average will likely climb, which will only boost his counting stats further. Simply put, it looks like another monster season for the 28-year-old if he stays healthy.

Goldschmidt went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and two RBI Tuesday at the Dodgers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Goldschmidt's third bomb of the year broke an eighth inning tie before he grounded out in the ninth to give the Diamondbacks an insurance run. He now has homered in back-to-back games, and he also has five extra-base hits in eight games this season.

Goldschmidt was 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Arizona lineup couldn't get any ducks on the pond for Goldy, who managed just one RBI despite collecting six total bases. Goldschmidt is already tops on the team with seven RBI, but the glaring absence of A.J. Pollock from the lineup has curtailed his production just a bit to this point.

Goldschmidt homered and drove in four runs in a 2-for-4 effort in Tuesday's win over Colorado.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Goldschmidt also tripled, which will help take the sting out of an 0-for-4 Opening Day line. Even with his brilliance last season, Goldschmidt had just four games with a home run and another extra-base hit in 2015, so this was a huge game for the Arizona first baseman.

Goldschmidt is just 5-for-23 (.217) in Cactus League play, with no home runs and three RBI.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The usual caveat about not putting too much stock into spring numbers applies here. Goldschmidt is a career .295 hitter with a .865 OPS in the regular season's opening month, so he usually gets rolling right away. Expect Goldschmidt to be a top fantasy contributor this year, barring injury.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Goldy has compiled an impressive 15-for-40 stretch at the end of the season, capping what has already been a remarkable year. Reaching his first 20-20 season, and posting a career-high .997 OPS, Goldschmidt has put up MVP caliber numbers in an otherwise lackluster Arizona lineup.
