Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury returns vs. Atlanta

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:16:47 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is leading off against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) only missed one game, and he is only dealing with a bruised hip. He has really struggled of late with a.258/.293/.398 slash line over his past 22 games, so there is an added degree of risk starting him at FantasyScore. Still, it isn't a daunting matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is questionable Friday and is a midrange option on FantasyScore if he can go.

Yankees | Targeting Friday for Jacoby Ellsbury

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:55:24 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) was out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Houston Astros. Manager Joe Girardi said he is hopeful Ellsbury will be ready to go Friday, Aug. 28, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was sore after the game Tuesday. He should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out with hip issue

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 08:18:56 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is out of the lineup with hip soreness Wednesday, Aug. 26. The team isn't viewing it as a major issue yet. OF Brett Gardner is hitting leadoff in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Gardy ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) faces Collin McHugh today, but he's hitting just .203 this month and .136 over the last week. He might not be the best option on FantasyScore at this midrange price.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury sitting vs. Cleveland

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:13:31 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. OF Chris Young draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. The outfielder is 13-for-36 over his past eight games and beginning to heat up down the stretch. Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is an extremely risky play at FantasyScore Friday. He owns an underwhelming .185/.242/.342 slash line against righties this season, and Carrasco ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) has allowed just five runs over his past four starts.

Yankees | Two more hits for Jacoby Ellsbury

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 20:16:24 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI and stolen base Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .444 (12-for-27) with three RBIs over his seven-game hitting streak. He is a must-start FantasyScore option at a mid-level price.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury heating up

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:35:11 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is 7-for-8 with a triple, a home run and two RBI since resting Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) worked with hitting coach Jeff Pentland during his day off, and the guidance appears to be paying off. Ellsbury has five-category potential, but his six home runs and 14 stolen bases are serious disappointments for seasonal owners. Don't rule out a strong finish to the season, though, and Ellsbury isn't overpriced at FantasyScore, either. He is worth considering for lineups Monday, Aug. 17, against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury sitting the bench

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:33:32 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend running with Young ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) on FantasyScore, as he's more of a lefty killer. Against righties, his triple slash line is considerably worse (.189/.237/.350). Ellsbury could use a day off; he's hitting .105 (4-for-38) with 14 strikeouts in August. You may want to consider benching him in traditional leagues until he picks it back up.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury has awful game

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 22:07:07 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury was hitless in seven at-bats with two strikeouts Tuesday, Aug. 11, in a 16-inning loss against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is mired in a 19 at-bat hitless streak over the past four games. More worrisome is the fact he has 16 strikeouts over the past 10 games while posting just 35 strikeouts in his first 55 games. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he gets untracked.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury delivers in clutch

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 19:40:39 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead home run in a 2-1 win over the Boston Red Sox Thursday, Aug. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first multi-hit effort for Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) since he had three hits against Baltimore July 23. Still, his batting average has dipped from .324 to .280 since he returned from injury, and he should probably be avoided at FantasyScore until he shows some consistency at the plate.
