Fantasy Impact: Betts was traded from the Red Sox to the Dodgers during the 2020 offseason. His impressive performance was one of the main reasons the Dodgers won the World Series. Betts was terrific in his first campaign with the Dodgers, slashing .292/.366/.562 with 16 home runs, 39 RBI, 47 runs and 10 stolen bases over 246 plate appearances.

The shortstop hit .400 (8-for-20) with two home runs and five RBI in the six game series. It capped off a phenomenal postseason for Seager, who also took home MVP honors in the NLCS.

Fantasy Impact: Urias capped off his phenomenal postseason run with a scoreless 2 1/3 innings to earn his first save of the season. He finished the playoffs with a stellar 1.17 ERA, 0.65 WHIP, and a 29:4 K/BB ratio over 23 innings (six appearances, two starts).

Fantasy Impact: It was a bizarre turn of events for Turner who had played most of the game before being removed. The league announced the reason for his removal following the conclusion of the game.

Victor Gonzalez earned the win on Tuesday as he allowed no runs and no hits while striking out three over 1 1/3 innings in the Dodgers 3-1 win over the Rays to clinch the World Series title.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez replaced Pedro Baez in the top of the fifth inning with two outs and a runner on base and was able to induce an Austin Meadows ground out to end the inning. He then came back out for the sixth inning and struck out the side. The Dodgers took the lead in the following frame while Gonzalez was still the pitcher of record so he was credited with the win. The Dodgers took home their first World Series title since way back in 1988.

Tony Gonsolin was handed a no-decision on Tuesday when he allowed one run on three hits with four strikeouts and two walks over 1 2/3 innings in the Dodgers 3-1 win over the Rays in Game 6 to win the World Series.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the fact manager Dave Roberts said that Gonsolin would be used as a starter as opposed to an opener, the right-hander had a very short leash. After giving up a solo shot to Randy Arozarena in the first inning, he worked his way around a single and a walk to end the threat. He then gave up a double and another walk in the second before being replaced by Dylan Floro. The Dodgers pen took care of business from there, though, as the Rays were blanked the rest of the game. The Dodgers are now World Champions for the first time since 1988.

Max Muncy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk as the Dodgers took down the Rays 4-2 in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Muncy belted a solo bomb off Tyler Glasnow in the top of the fifth inning to put the Dodgers up 4-2, which would prove to be the final score in the game. The first baseman also drew his 20th walk of the playoffs giving him an impressive 20:20 K/BB ratio over 56 at-bats. He's also sporting a .268/.461/.500 batting line with three home runs and 14 RBI.

Blake Treinen earned the save on Sunday when he worked a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit and whiffing two in the Dodgers 4-2 win over the Rays in Game 5 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact: Treinen worked a relatively drama-free ninth inning after he gave up a leadoff single to Manuel Margot. He was able to retire the next three batters in order to pick up the save and give the Dodgers a 3-1 series lead. LA is now one win away from their first World Series title since 1988.

Clayton Kershaw picked up the win on Sunday when he allowed two runs on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks over 5 2/3 innings in the Dodgers 4-2 win over the Rays in Game 5 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact: Kershaw did his job, once again, holding the Rays to a pair of runs over his five plus innings of work. He was tagged for an RBI triple by Yandy Diaz and subsequently gave up an RBI single to Randy Arozarena in the third inning but that was that was the only real damage he sustained. The Dodgers pen was able to continue the job and earn Kershaw his second win of the World Series. The veteran southpaw is having the best playoff run of his career up to this point with a 4-1 record, 2.93 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and a 37:5 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings. The Dodgers are now one win away from locking up their first World Championship since 1988.

Kenley Jansen took the loss and blew the save on Saturday when he surrendered two runs (one earned) on two hits with a walk and a strikeout in the Dodgers 8-7 loss to the Rays in Game 4 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact: Jansen entered in the bottom of the ninth inning to protect a one-run Dodgers lead. He was able to get out two of the first three batters he faced with Kevin Kiermaier reaching via a single. Jansen then walked Randy Arozarena, who had homered earlier in the game and took Jansen deep on Friday night, before giving up a two-run game-winning single to Brett Phillips. Chris Taylor mishandled the ball in center field, which allowed Arozarena to score. The series is now tied at 2-2 with a crucial Game 5 looming on Sunday evening.

Austin Barnes went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the Dodgers 6-2 win over the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

Walker Buehler earned the win on Friday when he allowed one run on three hits with 10 strikeouts and one walk over six innings in the Dodgers 6-2 win over the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact: Buehler was in total command from the jump in this one. He was working a no-hitter until the bottom of the fifth inning when Manuel Margot notched a one out double. Willy Adames then picked up a double of his own to score Margot, which would be the only run the Rays would score off of Buehler. The 26-year old hurler set a new personal playoff record with 10 strikeouts as well. Buehler has been terrific this postseason and is now sporting a sparkling 1.80 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a 39:12 K/BB ratio over 25 innings. The Dodgers will look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead on Saturday when Julio UrĂ­as toes the rubber.

Will Smith went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Dodgers 6-4 loss to the Rays in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Smith golfed a Nick Anderson offering over the wall in left field in the bottom of the sixth for his only hit of the game. The dinger pulled the Dodgers to within three runs but they would run out of time and lose by a final score of 6-4. The 25-year old backstop is currently working on a five-game hitting-streak with two home runs and seven RBI over that same span. Overall, he's slashing .222/.276/.389 with two home runs and 12 RBI this postseason (51 at-bats).

Fantasy Impact: Taylor took Blake Snell deep in the fifth inning for a two-run shot to right field to put the Dodgers on the board. It was his first dinger of the postseason and his only hit of the night. LA staged a late-game rally that ultimately fell short.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez entered the game as a pinch-hitter for Joc Pederson in the sixth inning with the Dodgers losing 3-2. He put up a brilliant at-bat against A.J. Minter that ended with Hernandez crushing the eighth pitch over the wall in left-center. The Dodgers would take the lead in the following frame via a Cody Bellinger solo shot to advance to their third World Series in the last four seasons. The 29-year old utility man has done his job in a reserve role so far this postseason with a pair of clutch homers to go along with a .222 batting average and a .856 OPS over 18 at-bats.

Dustin May got the start as the opener and allowed one run on one hit with two walks and one strikeout in the Dodgers 4-3 win over the Braves in Game 7 of the NLCS on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: May got off to a rough start in this one as he walked the first two batters of the ball game on eight straight pitches. He ended up giving up a run but things could have been worse under the circumstances; he was pitching on short rest and had a short leash. In the end, the rest of the Dodgers bullpen did enough to hold down Atlanta and secure LA's third trip to the World Series in the last four years.

Edwin Rios went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Dodgers 10-2 loss to the Braves in Game 4 of the NLCS.

Fantasy Impact: Rios was responsible for all of LA's offensive output as they only mustered three hits and two runs in the lopsided defeat. He gave the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead with a solo tater off of Bryse Wilson in the third inning and picked up his second RBI in the seventh with a sacrifice fly. LA now faces elimination in a crucial Game 5 on Friday.
