Fantasy Insights: Status quo in Chicago may not yield results

How much longer will fantasy managers be able to rely on the duo of Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo? Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Spring is here and Eric Karabell misses baseball, so he is going to write about all 30 MLB teams over the next few months, covering myriad player values and his general thoughts for what he hopes will ultimately be a fruitful 2020 season.

Next up, the Chicago Cubs!

Top fantasy storyline: Kris Bryant was the NL Rookie of the Year in 2015 and followed that the next season with an MVP award, leading the Cubs to their first World Series title in, well, a really long time. Since then, however, Bryant has been rather ordinary for fantasy purposes, certainly in comparison to expectations. Oh, he hit 31 home runs and scored 108 times last season, but was barely a top-100 fantasy option on the ESPN Player Rater. Has he become overrated? Will he even remain a Cub for much longer?
