Analysis: Souza has had an absolutely dreadful September, as he's 4 for 47 with a meager .388 OPS in 15 games this month. Though it's probably safe to drop him from fantasy rosters, he'll be worth a look in 2018 drafts after entering this season's final stretch with 30 homers and 16 stolen bases.

Analysis: Souza's late-season rut continues. He's now 0 for 17 with 10 strikeouts over his last five games and 5 for 49 (.102) with just one home run and two RBIs in his past 14. Though he's been a solid fantasy producer this season, the outfielder is quite a risky play at the moment.

Analysis: Souza was back in the lineup after missing three games with a knee bruise he sustained Friday in Boston.
