San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. OF Will Venable will start in left field.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Upton's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) injury over the next few days to see when he will play again. Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 at the plate in 2015 and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) left the game Saturday, April 18, with a quadriceps strain. He's day to day.
Fantasy Tip: Will Venable ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) has flashed 30-steal potential in the past and would be a nice flyer on FantasyScore if Upton misses time.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (illness) is not feeling well and might miss a couple days, according to manager Bud Black.
Fantasy Tip: Upton remains a top-end outfield name in fantasy baseball circles, and his floor remains high. He could see a drop in drafts because of his move to pitcher-friendly Petco Park, but Upton has the kind of power that plays anywhere. Scoop him up quickly if there's any value to be had.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton isn't worried that his numbers will suffer with the move to hitter-friendly Petco Park in San Diego. Upton actually has 10 career home runs and a .291 average in 46 career games at Petco Park. "Everybody says it's big. I don't think so," Upton said. "It usually plays pretty fair. It's one of those places where if you hit a home run, it's going to be a home run. I've enjoyed a bit of success here, and I enjoy playing here." Upton is expected to start in left field, with OF Wil Myers in center and OF Matt Kemp in right field.
