Fantasy Impact:

Rizzo has been dealing with lower back tightness and took live BP on Sunday. “He looked good today,” said Cubs Manager David Ross. “No back issues. Even when he swung and missed on a couple of change ups. I think the main thing we have to do is see how he reacts when he cools down, goes home.” Rizzo is currently day-to-day, but is expected to be back by Opening Day. The 30-year-old slashed .293/.405/.520 with 27 homers, 95 RBI and 89 runs across 512 at-bats in 2019. Rizzo is currently fourth among all first basemen in the latest expert consensus rankings.
