Phillies | Andres Blanco continues to rake

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 22:39:44 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Andres Blanco went 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI with a caught stealing Saturday, June 25, against the San Francisco Giants. He has hit safely in six of the past nine games, raising his average from .253 to .273 just since June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is worth using as a middle infielder option in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues and he is worth riding as a low-priced DFS option until he starts to cool off.

Phillies | Three Phils sitting out Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 15:56:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera, OF Cody Asche and 2B Cesar Hernandez are out of the lineup Saturday, June 25. OF Peter Bourjos leads off with 2B Andres Blanco hitting fifth and OF Jimmy Paredes hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos is hitting .375 this month and hits lefties to a .327 clip. Madison Bumgarner isn't your typical lefty, but Bourjos has upside tonight. Blanco has minimal fantasy intrigue, but Paredes doesn't at this point.

Phillies | Andres Blanco has three-hit game

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:57:17 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Andres Blanco went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs scored and two RBIs Wednesday, June 22, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco had a strong stat line, but he is still only worth using in the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues and as a low-cost DFS option.

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Wednesday, June 22. SS Andres Blanco will start at second base and is batting second.

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:45:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Tuesday, June 21. 2B Andres Blanco will start at second base and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is hitting .263 with one RBI over the last seven days. Blanco should be used in NL-only leagues but does not have much value in most mixed leagues.

Phillies | Maikel Franco out of lineup

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 08:42:12 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco is out of the lineup Monday, June 20, with 3B Andres Blanco hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco continues to see spots in the middle of the order, but the production isn't following. He has a .243-1-4 line this month, and he's a pass against Shelby Miller.

Phillies | Philadelphia resting four players

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 09:12:05 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Tommy Joseph, C Cameron Rupp, 2B Cesar Hernandez and OF Peter Bourjos are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke Saturday, June 18. 2B Andres Blanco will start at second base and is batting third. 1B Ryan Howard will start at first base and is batting fourth. OF Jimmy Paredes will start in right field and is batting fifth, while C Carlos Ruiz will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco, Howard and Ruiz are all hitting less than .200 over the last seven days and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Paredes is performing a little better at the plate over that span, but owners should be able to find better options for their lineups.

Phillies | Maikel Franco still sidelined

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:18:06 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (knee) is out of the starting lineup again Wednesday, June 15. 2B Andres Blanco is at the hot corner and is hitting third against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Franco has now missed the last three games. If he's forced to sit out much longer, the Phils may consider putting him on the DL. Stay tuned. Blanco doesn't move the fantasy needle much with a .265/.316/.390 slash line and 13 career home runs in nine seasons. Consider him a low-end middle infield option in daily leagues.

Phillies | Maikel Franco out again

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 07:08:14 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (knee) is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 14, with 3B Andres Blanco hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has DFS upside because he's hitting third. However, he is not the prototypical three-hole hitter that can packs an offensive punch. He's also facing Marcus Stroman, and he's hitting just .227 this month with a .262-2-11 line on the year. Pass on him.

Phillies | Maikel Franco takes a seat

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 13:44:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 13. 2B Andres Blanco is starting at the hot corner and is hitting third against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably just a routine day of rest for the young third baseman. Blanco has a .266/.326/.468 slash line in 2015 with two home runs and 11 RBI. He had a career high of seven long balls last year, so he won't help you out in the power department in DFS. Despite the nice lineup spot, there is limited fantasy upside here.
