Anthony Rizzo sitting on Saturday

Anthony Rizzo is absent from Saturday’s lineup versus the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

It’s a routine day of rest for Rizzo, who has 19 homers and 53 RBI this year. Victor Caratini is starting at first base in his absence versus Zack Wheeler.

Anthony Rizzo crushes 19th homer in win Friday

Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cubs' 2-1 win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo provided all the offense for Chicago in this one, and it was all Yu Darvish needed on a dominant night. Rizzo has homered on back-to-back days and now has 19 homers along with a .279/.389/.563 triple slash on the year.

Anthony Rizzo homers in loss Friday

Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cubs' 5-3 loss to the Dodgers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo's homer pace has slowed a bit in June, but he's still one of the game's best first baseman and a must start option. He is hitting .245 with three home runs this month.

Anthony Rizzo crushes 17th homer in loss Monday

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Cubs' 6-5 loss to the Rockies on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo took well to Coors Field, with his first home run and multi-hit game since June 1. Even with his sluggish start to June, he is one of the game's elite first baseman.

Anthony Rizzo reaches three times from leadoff spot Friday

Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-2 with a single and two walks in the Cubs' 3-1 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

This was a fine game for Rizzo, but the real story is his place atop the Cubs' order. He's spent time in the leadoff spot for Joe Maddon before, and while not the stereotypical leadoff man, Rizzo's 11% BB rate and .370 OBP make him a fine table-setter. The issue, at least from a traditionalist's standpoint, is that Rizzo has the power to not only set the table, but sit down and feast on the meal. This may have been a one-off thing for the Cubs, as Kyle Schwarber was not in the lineup, but it's something worth monitoring.
