Jason Heyward with four RBI Saturday versus Cincinnati

Jason Heyward started his first game since being activated from the concussion Saturday in Game 2 of the doubleheader versus the Reds. He would go 2-for-4 with four RBI with a run scored.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward is a better real-life player than a fantasy option as his greatest asset is defense. He has a place in fairly deep formats or NL-only.

Heyward has been out with a concussion for a little over a week and was eligible to return on Monday. He took part in drills yesterday and cleared the concussion protocol prior to being activated today. Heyward is batting .227 with two home runs 14 RBIs, 16 runs scored, and no stolen bases on the season.

Jason Heyward could return over the weekend

Jason Heyward was able to resume some baseball activities Tuesday and Wednesday. He is recovering from a concussion. While a return early next week is more likely, Joe Maddon did concede "it's not impossible" that Heyward could be activated from the DL this weekend.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward is more of a depth-type fantasy asset in deeper leagues. However, the strength of the Cubs offense does offer some opportunity for Heyward.

Jason Heyward placed on concussion DL

The Chicago Cubs have place outfielder Jason Heyward on the seven day concussion DL.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward first hurt his head on Sunday night, so the Cubs are going to play things safe here. It's unclear how long he will be out. Ben Zobrist is starting in his place tonight.

Jason Heyward with a run scored versus the Cardinals Saturday

Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 Saturday versus the Cardinals. He would score a run.

Fantasy Impact

Heyward's fantasy value has seen a decline from the excitement around him early in his career. However, in deep leagues, he still offers some upside as part of a strong team that will produce runs.
