Anthony Rizzo has $16.5 million option exercised by Cubs

The Chicago Cubs exercised Anthony Rizzo's $16.5 million 2021 option.

Fantasy Impact

This was expected. Many options around MLB have been declined in a suppressed financial market to begin the offseason, but $16.5 million is too good of a value for the Cubs to pass up. The 31-year-old now enters a contract year in 2021.

Anthony Rizzo not focused on option

Anthony Rizzo is not focused on his $16.5M contract option that the Cubs can exercise for 2021.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo, the longtime leader of the Cubs and historical top-50 fantasy pick, is a lock to be in a Cubs uniform next year. He will get a chance to rebound from his poor (by his standards) 2021, in which he hit just .222 with 11 homers.

Anthony Rizzo homers Wednesday versus Pittsburgh

Anthony Rizzo homered in the top of the first inning Wednesday to put the Cubs up 1-0. It was his 11th of the season and second in two days. For the second straight game, the Rizzo blast was the only time the Cubs scored.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo has had a down season but much will be forgiven if he has a good postseason. If he comes at a discount in next year's drafts, he likely would be a good value.

Anthony Rizzo homers Tuesday versus Pittsburgh

Anthony Rizzo drove an eighth-inning pitch into the rightfield stands to tie the game. It was his 10th home run of the season, and the first to come with a runner on.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo is struggling to get hits but still is finding ways to get on-base enough to help our fantasy teams. One possible silver lining is that he may come at a discount in next season's fantasy drafts.

Anthony Rizzo scores decisive run versus the Twins Friday

Anthony Rizzo walked to lead off the bottom of the first inning Friday. He would come around to score and the run would hold up as the Cubs would win 1-0.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo is struggling to get hits but still is finding ways to get on-base enough to help our fantasy teams. One possible silver lining is that he may come at a discount in next season's fantasy drafts.
