Simmons went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and his 13th stolen base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old hasn't let his new placement in the heart of the order limit his ability to stay active on the basepaths. In fact, he has taken three bases over the three games he has batted fifth in. Simmons continues to be a solid contributor at the shortstop position, giving him mixed-league value for the first time since 2013 when he exploded for 17 home runs.

Simmons went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a pair of steals in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The shortstop has been quietly contributing across the board this season (.279 average, 32 runs, seven home runs, 31 RBI and 12 steals), putting him on pace for the best fantasy production of his career in his age 27 season. Simmons spent some time batting leadoff for the Angels, but he has moved down to fifth in the order with Cameron Maybin back from the disabled list, so he should see more RBI opportunities at the expense of runs scored going forward.

Simmons went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons continues to post solid cross-category numbers and is up to seven home runs, 30 RBI, 10 stolen bases and 31 runs with a .281/.342/.418 slash line. He's moving the fantasy needle in the majority of settings and is well on his way to a career-best showing.

Simmons went 2-for-4 with a walk, two steals and two runs against the Yankees on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

He's been doin' work over the course of the last eight games, going 12-for-32 (.375) with four steals, five RBI and seven runs; Simmons has struck out only a single time in that span. With 10 stolen bags now, Simmons has already matched last season's total (in just over half as many games), and his current .746 OPS is easily his best since his 49-game debut in 2012. This is the best fantasy package we've ever seen from him.

Simmons went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run during Sunday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

The shortstop is turning in his best fantasy campaign since hitting 17 home runs as a sophomore in 2013. Simmons has a respectable .278 batting average and .336 on-base percentage with six homers, 28 RBI, eight stolen bases and 27 runs. Those are serviceable numbers in deep settings, and Simmons has been especially solid since mid-May with a .886 OPS through his past 29 games. It's also worth noting that he's locked into the lineup and has started 65 of 66 games this season.

Simmons went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs during Thursday's win over Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons has been hitting well and entered Thursday with an .869 OPS through his previous 25 games. He sports a respectable .276 batting average with six home runs, 25 RBI, seven stolen bases and 25 runs for the season, which are serviceable fantasy numbers in plenty of settings.

Simmons went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old has moved into the leadoff spot over the Angels' last four contests due to a couple of injuries to the team's regulars. Saturday's homer was just his second hit in 14 at-bats since moving to the top of the lineup, but Simmons' overall body of work this season (.272/.333/.401 with six home runs and six steals) has made the shortstop a viable fantasy option in most formats.

Simmons is batting leadoff and playing shortstop Wednesday against the Braves, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Simmons is in the midst of a 12-game hitting streak -- a stretch over which he's slashed .408/.444/.653 with two homers and a stolen base -- so he'll get a chance to lead things off for the Angels for the first time all season. It's unclear if manager Mike Scioscia plans to keep hitting Simmons there even when Cameron Maybin (side) is back in the lineup, but he'll enjoy some favorable placement in the order for the now.

Simmons went 1-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season in Monday's loss to Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

The defensive-minded shortstop has been getting it done at the plate this season with a .280 batting average, five homers and four steals in 200 at-bats. His moderate production across the board at a shallow offensive position has placed Simmons firmly on the fantasy map.

Simmons filled up the stat sheet Sunday, going 2-for-6 with a double, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a 12-5 win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

With a couple of the Angels' regulars sidelined with injuries, Simmons was called upon to set the table for Mike Trout out of the two-hole Sunday. He did just that and more, getting on base three times and driving the ball with authority. Known mainly for his defense, the veteran shortstop has been getting it done at the plate recently, collecting 10 hits over his last 26 at-bats. Simmons will hold value as a middle infielder until he cools off.
