Bryant went 2-for-4 with a walk and three runs scored in Saturday's 9-8 extra-inning loss to the Tigers.
Bryant continues to produce at a high level, as he's up to 31 runs scored across 36 games to go along with a 1.070 OPS, 10 home runs and 24 RBI. He started in left field in this one, and while he will certainly play plenty of third base moving forward, the Cubs may also keep using him in the outfield so they can keep Matt Duffy's bat in the lineup. Either way, Bryant needs to be locked into fantasy lineups.
Bryant went 1-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 4-2 win over the Tigers.

Though the ailment that prompted Bryant's early exit in Tuesday's 3-2 loss isn't believed to be COVID-19-related, the 29-year-old appears to be dealing with something more serious than a common cold.

Matt Duffy will spell Bryant in left field Wednesday.

Bryant is off to a strong start at the plate, so it's not too surprising to see opposing pitchers approach him carefully, as evidenced by the two walks Sunday.

Bryant will sit for just the second time this season. He's done everything he can to prove that his struggles last year were nothing more than a temporary blip, as he's hitting .289/.375/.618 with six homers in 21 games. David Bote starts at third base Tuesday, with Ian Happ sliding from center field to left, the spot Bryant had occupied in the previous four games.
