Contreras went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs had just eight hits and two runs, but Contreras was still productive from the No. 7 spot in the lineup. The 26-year-old catcher has been locked in lately, going 16-for-34 over his last 10 games with two home runs and 10 RBI. Chicago has a number of strong options in its lineup, but Contreras could move himself up in the order if he keeps hitting like this. He's now batting .287 this season with an .840 OPS.

Contreras played a key role in sending the Wrigley Field crowd home happy on the Fourth of July. His sixth inning home run broke a 2-2 tie, then he tacked on some insurance runs for the Cubs in the seventh with a double that plated two more. The young catcher has been locked in lately, going 13-for-29 over his last eight games with two home runs and 10 RBI.

Contreras went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Contreras batted seventh in this one, which is more of a reflection of the depth of Chicago's lineup than his performance to date, as the young catcher now has a solid .275 average and .805 OPS on the season. Contreras should continue to be one of the top options at his position in all fantasy formats.

Contreras launched his home run over the right field wall in the second inning off Anthony DeSclafani, his fifth of the season. It was his first home run and only fourth extra-base hit since May 12.
