Crawford went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs in a 10-7 win against the Mets on Thursday. Though productive on the whole, August has been an odd month for Crawford; he's delivered six multi-hit efforts among 16 games, including a seven-hit night, and yet has improved his stat line only nominally thanks to seven hitless games in that same span. His .784 OPS is a near clone of last year's .782 mark, but he seems quite unlikely to crack 20 homers again and provides minimal speed, so most of Crawford's fantasy value stems from his RBI -- he's tied for second among shortstops with 74.
Crawford went 2-for-4 with a triple and three RBI in the Giants' 6-5 loss at the hands of the Pirates.

The solid night raised Crawford's RBI total to 74, best among NL shortstops ahead of fellow NL West stars Trevor Story and Corey Seager. He's now hitting .271/.338/.439 on the year.

The slugging shortstop has managed just 10 long balls after launching 21 last year, but he's well on pace to top last season's career-high total of 84 RBI thanks to a consistent role in the heart of a talented Giants lineup.
