Andrus went 2-for-4 at the dish in Wednesday's 12-2 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

With the Rangers eliminated from playoff contention, manager Jeff Banister has decided to shut down Andrus' regular mate on the left side of the infield, Adrian Beltre, for the remainder of the season, but it doesn't look like a similar fate will await the shortstop. Andrus, who has put together back-to-back two-hit games, has suited up in all but three of the Rangers' contests this season, and since his health seems to be on solid ground, he'll likely be given the leeway to continue playing through the weekend. The prospect of regular at-bats over the final four games will give Andrus a shot at besting the career-high .302 average he posted in 2016; he's currently sitting at .299 for the season.

Andrus went 1-for-4 with a steal and a run in Monday's 11-2 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The stolen base was Andrus' 25th of the season, marking the seventh time in his career that he's reached that benchmark. Contrary to previous seasons, however, Andrus has accompanied that steal total with career-best power production, with his 20 home runs more than doubling up his previous top mark (eight in 2016). The 20-20 season has helped vault Andrus into the elite ranks of fantasy shortstops in 2017.

Andrus went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus' second base hit of the evening helped put the game on ice for the Rangers, as it drove home Delino DeShields for an insurance run in the top of the eighth inning. It was Andrus' 86th RBI of the season, one of many categories in which the shortstop has established new career highs.

Andrus went 0-for-3 at the dish in Thursday's 10-4 loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

After a red-hot August and strong start to September, Andrus has cooled off over the past six games, batting 3-for-19 with three walks. The minor slump shouldn't prompt Andrus' fantasy owners to take him out of the lineup, as he's been one of the top performing shortstops all season and should play nearly everyday with the Rangers still fighting for a playoff spot.

Andrus went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, three RBI and a run in Friday's 11-5 win over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus' breakout season as a power hitter refuses to end, as the shortstop has now compiled 11 extra-base knocks -- including four home runs -- just in his last 10 games. He should continue to pile up the RBI in September now that on-base machines Delino DeShields and Shin-Soo Choo are locked into the top two spots in the batting order.

Andrus went a combined 5-for-9 with a home run, a double, a walk, a stolen base, three RBI and two runs as the Rangers and Braves split a doubleheader Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus did most of his damage in the Rangers' Game 1 victory, producing four hits, including his 20th home run of the season. With the long ball, Andrus locked up the first 20-homer, 20-steal season of his career, joining All-Stars Mike Trout and Jose Altuve in that exclusive club in 2017. The shortstop has collected four of his home runs in the last three games.

Andrus went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI Sunday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus followed up a third-inning solo shot with a two-run homer in the sixth. The shortstop has developed decent power power out of nowhere, hitting 18 home runs in 132 contests after never managing more than eight in any of his eight previous major-league seasons. Andrus is blowing his career .369 slugging percentage out of the water with a .483 mark while maintaining a presence on the base paths with 23 steals.

Andrus went 1-for-5 with three RBI in Friday's 10-9 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Andrus plated the Rangers' first run of the game on a first-inning groundout, then added two more RBI to his ledger with a base hit in the second inning that scored Robinson Chirinos and Delino DeShields. The shortstop now sits at 72 RBI for the season, which represents a new career high in the category.

Andrus went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs against the Astros on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

There are a number of impressive hot streaks that can be picked out of Andrus' season, but these last five games have been something particularly special, as he's gone 13-for-23 (.565) with four doubles, a triple, three RBI and six runs scored. Andrus has seen his fence-clearing power dry up some -- he has just one homer in his last 25 games -- but he's been racking up hits like nobody's business.

Andrus went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, an RBI and three runs in Tuesday's 12-2 rout of the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop's sudden outburst of power has been quite something, as he's now set a new career high in doubles with 36 and he's already doubled his previous career high in homers with 16. Andrus has done all that while hitting for the best average of his career (.303) and stealing 20-plus bases for the ninth time in his nine seasons, leaving him with an unimpeachable five-category fantasy line.
