Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two runs, and two stolen bases in Thursday's victory over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo collected just five hits over 30 at-bats (.167) in the nine games prior to Thursday's, but he showed signs of getting back on track by walking four times Wednesday, and he had no trouble seeing the ball in the finale of the Cubs' three-game sweep of the Mets. The two steals, which give him 10 for the year, don't hurt either.

Rizzo went 2-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo was locked in at the plate in this one as he snapped an 0-for-11 slump that stretched back the past three games. With a .280/.396/.532 slash line to go along with 31 home runs and 102 RBI, Rizzo is once again producing at an elite level this season.

Rizzo is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs will give Rizzo his first day off in almost a month. Victor Caratini, a catcher by trade, gets a start at first base, hitting seventh. Look for Rizzo to play almost every day over the rest of the season.

Rizzo went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer, two RBI and three runs against the Pirates on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Not that Rizzo ever seems to go cold, but he's been even hotter than usual over the last six games, racking up 12 hits --

including three homers and four doubles -- in 21 at-bats (a .571 average). It took him a while to normalize his batting average, but he's now up to .282 on the season, and further BABIP normalization could result in him challenging the .300 mark by the time September's up.

Rizzo went 3-for-5 with two homers, three runs and five RBI Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo crushed his 29th and 30th homers of the season to help lead to the Cubs to a blowout victory over the Phillies. He's closing out a strong month of August in which he's hitting over .330 with six homers, and he's been an excellent fantasy option for the entire season with a .526 slugging percentage.

EDGE Analysis

After picking up National League Player of the Week honors on Monday, Rizzo showed no signs of slowing down Tuesday. He's slashing a ridiculous .423/.531/.692 over his last seven games with four doubles, a home run and nine RBI. Fantasy owners should sit back and enjoy the ride.

Rizzo was named National League Player of the Week on Monday after going 12-for 28 with two home runs and 13 RBI over his past seven games, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is the second time Rizzo has received this honor in his career, and the first time since 2014. The 28-year-old is slashing .292/.391/.523 since the All-Star break and should be a key contributor during fantasy playoffs.

Rizzo went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo has been on a tear over the last four games, as he's gone 9-for-17 with three doubles, two home runs and 10 RBI. He figures to continue providing outstanding fantasy value the rest of the way from the heart of a strong Cubs lineup.

Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and two runs scored during Wednesday's win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo hit two home runs and drove in nine runs during the three-game series and is up to a .265/.385/.513 slash line for the season. He remains a high-end asset in all settings, and Rizzo might even have earned second-base status in some leagues after being scored at the keystone for the 10th time Monday. It's a potentially huge fantasy boost.
