Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (side) was scratched from the starting lineup Thursday, July 28, because of right side tightness. OF Ramon Flores will start in left field, while OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in right field.
Fantasy Tip: The severity of Braun's injury is not known, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Nieuwenhuis is hitting .429 with three home runs and six RBI over the last seven days and should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Owners in most leagues should avoid Flores.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and three runs scored against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, July 26. He has now hit safely in 11 straight games.
Fantasy Tip: Braun's ability to get on base (.419 OBP) and steal bases (6-for-6) have both been exemplary this month, but only three of his 23 July hits have been for extra bases. While his speed and batting average are keeping him relevant, Braun's power outage is a potential concern down the stretch.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun extended his hitting streak to 10 games Monday, July 25, in a 7-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Braun is at .319-14-45 with 11 stolen bases, giving fantasy owners a mix of power and speed. He's a legitimate 20-20 threat and a powerful threat in all formats.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun went 1-for-3 with a solo home run against the Chicago Cubs on Friday, July 22. It was his first home run and first RBI since June 29 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Fantasy Tip: Braun's power outage lasted 15 games and 59 at-bats, which, given Braun's history and spot in the batting order, is rather stunning. He has hit safely in each game since the All-Star break and remains a solid OF2 in all formats

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with a triple and three runs scored against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday, July 20. He also stole a base.
Fantasy Tip: Braun is having an incredibly quiet month. How quiet? He doesn't have a home run OR an RBI in 52 ABs, and tonight's three runs almost matched his previous month-to-date total (four). We wouldn't advocate dropping him, but you could certainly consider sitting him down until his productivity picks up.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun isn't of interest to the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Braun got off to a torrential start of the season, and it has tapered off the last two months. He's hitting .244 with no homers in 45 at-bats this month, but he still has a .313-13-44 line on the season. He's looking more like the OF2 he was projected to be than the OF1 he was in the early part of 2016.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with OF Ramon Flores hitting eighth.
