Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:57:29 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (quadriceps) is back in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Upton ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has started the season off hot with three home runs and a .326 average in 46 at-bats. Last year, Upton hit .286 (34-for-119) with 11 of his 29 home runs off southpaws. He's a strong play at FantasyScore this evening while swinging at hitter-friendly Coors Field, too.

Padres | Justin Upton not in lineup

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:01:38 -0700

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.

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 15:44:41 -0700

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.

Padres | Justin Upton under the weather

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:49:10 -0800

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.
