Rizzo is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs wrapped up a division title Wednesday, so manager Joe Maddon will rest his starters in Thursday's series finale. Victor Caratini is starting at first base and batting sixth in his place.

Rizzo went 0-for-4 with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo has been scuffling a bit lately, as he has just one hit in his last 15 at-bats and he's hitting just .241 this month. Rizzo is too talented to stay in a slump for long, and hopefully he's able to break out soon.

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-4 with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI Tuesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo has been tearing the cover off the ball of late with five extra-base hits and nine RBI over his past four games. The first baseman's line has shot up to .279/.396/.532.

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.

Rizzo went 2-for-3 with two walks, a double, an RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

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.
