Dozier went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, three RBI and three runs against Cleveland on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

He's now reached the 90-RBI mark and cleared 100 runs for the season, and Dozier isn't done yet. It's been an impressive campaign for the veteran second baseman, and he's finishing strong, having gone 16-for-45 (.356) with three homers, seven RBI and 14 runs over the last 11 games.

Dozier went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs Friday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier launched his 32nd homer of the season to give the Twins an insurance run in the ninth inning of a road victory. After a red-hot month of August, he's cooled off significantly during this final month of the season, though he's still launched five homers in September while maintaining a strong slugging percentage.

Dozier went 2-for-4 with his 31st home run in Friday's loss to Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier is surging in the second half like last season with 14 home runs since Aug. 1. He leads all of baseball in homers since the 2016 All-Star break with 46.

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

With three homers in his last five games, Dozier now sits just one shy of 30 for the season. His rate production is lagging behind a bit from a year ago, but Dozier has done enough across the board to remain a top fantasy option at second base.

Dozier went 4-for-5 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run in Wednesday's 11-1 rout of the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Considering how much scoring the Twins did, it's actually a bit disappointing that Dozier didn't register more RBI and runs. Still, August has seen the veteran second baseman hit .321 with nine homers, four steals, 22 RBI and 25 runs in 28 games, so he's delivering another strong down-the-stretch performance even if he won't come close to matching last season's 42 homers.

Dozier went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, three walks and three runs scored during Sunday's win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier has caught fire of late with eight homers, 16 RBI and 19 runs through his past 16 games. He entered Sunday's game with a .974 OPS in the second half and now sports a .260/.344/.479 slash line for the season. The second baseman is helping the Twins push for a playoff berth, and fantasy owners are currently reaping the rewards.

Dozier almost singlehandedly powered Wednesday's victory over the Brewers, going 3-for-4 with a double, a solo homer, a steal and two runs.

EDGE Analysis

Are we seeing another late surge from the veteran second baseman? He's now launched six homers in the last nine games, and fantasy owners certainly won't mind him chipping in with his first steal since June; he's now reached double digits in that category for the fifth straight season. Dozier's lingered in relative mediocrity for much of the year, but we've seen what it looks like when he goes on a heater. He should be locked into fantasy lineups across all formats right now.

Dozier went 3-for-5 with two runs, a grand slam and five RBI during Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Dozier roped a go-ahead grand slam in the fourth inning to give the Twins a lead they wouldn't relinquish en route to their third straight win. The 30-year-old hasn't been able to match his offensive production from last season, but with four home runs in his past five games, it's certainly possible that Dozier may be gearing up for a strong finish to the 2017 campaign.
