Latest Update Gonzalez drives in three runs Monday Tue Sep, 16, 05:52 AM
Owns a sweet swing, huge power and a willingness to take walks. Can be clutch when driving in runs. Has very soft hands and is good defensively at first base.
Flaws: : Lacks speed and swings a little too freely at times, which sometimes limits his batting average from reaching top-tier levels. Is also lacking in range at first.
Gonzalez is now slashing .277/.336/.473 with 23 home runs, 106 RBI and 74 runs scored over 548 at-bats this season, which is his fifth consecutive season of 100 or more runs batted in. As long as he can stay healthy down the stretch fantasy owners can expect solid production, considering how well the Dodgers offense has been playing of late. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Gonzalez has had himself a nice September up to this point, slashing .281/.361/.688 with four home runs and 11 RBI over his last 32 at-bats. His recent performance has moved him into second place with 102 RBI, which is the fifth consecutive time he has totaled 100 or more in a season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
His monster six RBI game today puts him at 100 for the year. Gonzalez continues to be a great value pick in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts. He is hitting .279 on the year with 20 bombs on the year. Continue starting Gonzalez with confidence.Analyst: Colby Conway
Gonzalez has now hit safely in four-straight games and in seven of his last eight. In that span though, the power continues to suffer as he has just two home runs and four RBI. The decline over these last few years has moved him down amongst the first base rankings and he's now more of just a run-of-the-mill type guy. Keep that in mind when people are elevating his ADP just based on his name alone.Analyst: Howard Bender
