Dodgers | Howie Kendrick starting vs. Pirates

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:44:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Howie Kendrick is starting in left field and batting fifth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon Friday, June 24. OF Trayce Thompson is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is having a disappointing campaign with a .242/.300/.325 slash line and just 28 runs and 13 RBI. And since he doesn't help in the power or speed columns, his fantasy stock is dwindling. Thompson is struggling in June with a .214/.313/.429 line, but he has continued to be a nice fantasy asset in deep leagues with four home runs and three stolen bases. A lack of playing time limits Thompson's fantasy upside, though.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick not in the lineup

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:29:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Wednesday, June 22. OF Trayce Thompson will start in left field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has cooled off a bit at the plate and is hitting .227 this month. He should still be considered by owners in daily fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson leading off

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:10:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is leading off Saturday, June 18, with 2B Chase Utley out of the lineup. 2B Howie Kendrick is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson has three homers in the last week, but he's hitting just .216. He's an all-or-nothing play against Chase Anderson. Kendrick is hitting .412 the last week, and he's a low-end option in DFS.

Dodgers | Justin Turner takes a seat

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 15:57:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at the hot corner and is batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like just a normal day off for Turner Thursday. Make sure to take him out of all starting lineups. Kendrick has been very mediocre in a super utility role in 2016, hitting .232/.289/.299 with two home runs and 11 RBI. At this point he's become a low-end daily pick and is only useful for his multiposition eligibility in cavernous mixed and NL leagues.

Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars sitting out

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:30:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, June 15. 2B Howie Kendrick is at second base and is hitting sixth, OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting seventh and C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick and Van Slyke don't move the fantasy needle all that much but could be successful value plays in DFS if you're looking to save a little salary cap space against the lefty. Ellis is a light-hitting catcher that should be ignored.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick sitting Monday

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 14:49:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 13. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke recently came off the DL and has just one hit (a double) in 18 at-bats this year (.056 average). You should look for better daily options, especially since Grienke, who is looking more like the 2015 version of late.

Dodgers | Enrique Hernandez starting Friday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 16:34:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in left field and is batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Friday, June 10. 2B Howie Kendrick will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez should continue to see semi-regular at-bats in the outfield while sharing time with Kendrick. Hernandez started the year off hot but has since faded and has a .213/.286/.370 slash line with four home runs and 11 RBI. Both he and Kendrick are mainly attractive as depth in NL-only leagues. Hernandez has very little daily intrigue tonight hitting at the bottom of the order against a solid pitcher.

Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars sitting

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:30:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at second base and is hitting fifth, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and is batting third and C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and hitting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood. Also, 3B Justin Turner is in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has solidified everyday playing time with a .279 average and nine home runs on the year. He has become a viable option in most fantasy formats now. Kendrick is in a nice run-producing spot in the lineup but remains more of a low-end daily pick, as does Ellis. Turner has struggled to produce his numbers from a season ago and loses valuable RBI chances while hitting leadoff, making him a lackluster DFS selection tonight.

Dodgers | Justin Turner not in the lineup

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 11:45:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Sunday, June 5. 2B Howie Kendrick will start at third base and is batting fifth, while OF Enrique Hernandez will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has three hits in his last nine games and has gone hitless in his last 13 at-bats. Owners probably should look for other options for their lineup. Hernandez has three hits and one RBI in the last four games but is only hitting .211 this season. He does not appear to be a strong fantasy option in most leagues.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal idle Saturday

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 15:50:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is out of the lineup Saturday, June 4, with C A.J. Ellis hitting eighth. OF Howie Kendrick is spelling OF Carl Crawford as well, and he's hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis has little offensive prowess, but he usually catches Clayton Kershaw. Avoid him in fantasy. Kendrick is 2-for-15 (.133) the last week, but he's a low-end option at second base against Bud Norris.
