Brewers | Chris Carter gets rest day

Sun, 22 May 2016 15:03:48 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter did not start Sunday, May 22, as he got a day off to rest. OF Ramon Flores started in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Carter is enjoying a renaissance year, if you call 12 home runs and an average near .250 a renaissance. Still, in his final couple years with the Houston Astros it was not out of the question for him to bat .200 with 40 homers. Carter is doing well enough for now to merit fantasy consideration.

Brewers | Ryan Braun returns to lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:39:24 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, May 22, batting third. In addition, INF Hernan Perez will play third base and bat sixth, while 1B/OF Ramon Flores will start at first base and bat eighth. 1B Chris Carter and INF Aaron Hill receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Braun has been having a tremendous season and he should be re-inserted into all fantasy lineups without hesitation. On the other hand, Perez and Flores should be avoided due to the unfavorable matchup against Syndergaard.

Brewers | Chris Carter crushes 12th home run

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:33:03 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter went 1-for-4 with his 12th home run of the season Thursday, May 19, opposite the Chicago Cubs. He finished with one run scored and one RBI, not to mention three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Carter is settled in very nicely in his new home, and he actually has a legitimate shot to surpass his career high of 37 homers set a couple of years ago. While his batting average currently sits at .247, his owners will gladly take that, considering he's always well below that. Regardless, as long as he continues to contribute stellar power numbers, he's a good slugger to have in any league.

Brewers | Chris Carter ends long slump

Sun, 15 May 2016 14:52:39 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter snapped a seven-game streak during which he went hitless in 22 at-bats Sunday, May 15, by going 3-for-4 with a solo homer against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Carter's batting average (.254) has slipped to the level most owners have come to expect from him, but he is still tied for third in the National League with 11 homers despite his recent dry spell. It is worth noting for daily fantasy owners he has done most of his damage against right-handers and at home. He'll get both over each of the next three days as Milwaukee hosts the Chicago Cubs beginning on Tuesday.

Brewers | Chris Carter takes a seat

Sat, 14 May 2016 14:19:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter is out of the lineup Saturday, May 14, with C Jonathan Lucroy shifting to first base and hitting cleanup. C Martin Maldonado is hitting eighth and squatting behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy is an obvious consideration daily. Maldonado is hitting just .095 on the season, and he's not a good start against Luis Perdomo.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy has Friday off

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:38:10 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is out of the lineup Friday, May 6, with C Martin Maldonado hitting eighth. 1B Chris Carter moved up to hit cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado has had a miserable year and isn't worth starting. Carter has been a man possessed with five homers in the last seven days. He's a high-end start against Tim Adleman.

Brewers | Chris Carter blasts two more

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:22:54 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter hit two homers Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Carter hit two homers Sunday as well and has his average up to .287 with nine homers and 21 RBI. If you're a sell-high kind of person, now is the time to do it on the career .221 hitter. We don't see him sustaining the average, but a big season in Miller Park isn't out of the question.

Brewers | Chris Carter has his way with Miami

Sun, 01 May 2016 15:35:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter ended a three-game hitless drought in a big way on Sunday, May 1, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs, three RBI and three runs scored en route to a 14-5 rout of the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Consistency and a high batting average have never been Carter's calling cards, so owners should look to sell high pretty soon on one of the streakier power hitters in the game. With that said, he's been a solid four-category contributor so far, batting .278 with seven home runs, 18 RBI and 15 runs scored. He should remain in lineups against Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels at home on Monday.

Brewers | Chris Carter stays hot vs. Philly

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:29:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk during Milwaukee's 10-6 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: It was Carter's fifth home run of the season, and he is sitting with an impressive nine runs, seven doubles, 15 RBI and a .281/.353/.667 slash line. The power is sustainable, but Carter entered 2016 with a career .217 batting average, so expect negative regression in that department. Still, power-starved clubs could receive a nice boost from the established slugger.

Brewers | Chris Carter sits

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 08:39:11 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with C Jonathan Lucroy sliding over to first base and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: The move is a little puzzling because lefty Jaime Garcia is on the mound. However, when you take into consideration that Lucroy has hit safely in all seven of his games and is hitting .346, it makes sense to keep him in there. Lucroy is a high-end catching option. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate, but he doesn't deserve fantasy consideration.
