Matt Kemp hit a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Advice: Kemp hit the two-run blast off Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit in the sixth inning. The homer gives him 20 on the season, guaranteeing him the fifth 20-homer season of his career. Injuries hampered Kemp in the early going, but the 29-year-old has come on strong to post a .283/.347/.490 line through Sunday.

Matt Kemp is back in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Matt Kemp left Saturday's game versus the Giants after fouling a ball off his foot.

Advice: Joc Pederson took over for Kemp in the outfield. Kemp was 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBI before exiting the game in the fourth inning. He should be fine.

Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Advice: Matt Kemp is riding a 17-game hitting streak, the longest in the majors at the moment. His batting average is up to .282, and he's now at 19 homers and 69 RBI, four and 13 of which, respectively, came during the aforementioned 17-game stretch. We lament the loss of speed in Kemp's fantasy game (eight steals), but are pleased to report the power never left (.483 slugging percentage, a mere 10 points below his career mark).

Sat, Sep 13 Rotoworld
Matt Kemp hit his 19th home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Advice: The homer was Kemp's only hit in four at-bats. The outfielder started slow but has picked up the pace recently -- he hit five home runs in August, the most of any month so far, and he's got three already in September. The homer also gives him 68 RBI, and two more will be his highest total since his monster 2011 season.

Wed, Sep 10 Rotoworld
Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 and hit his 18th homer Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Advice: Kemp is hitting .310 with 10 homers in 158 at-bats since the All-Star break. He'll probably never be a fantasy MVP again, but given that he's just turning 30 this month, there's no reason to think he doesn't have more productive seasons left in him.
