Cubs | Chris Coghlan not starting Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 14:46:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not starting the Sunday, Aug. 30, game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Chris Denorfia is in right field and hitting second against Cubs SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .158 in the past seven days, so with the left vs. left matchup it is an appropriate time to sit him. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has four hits in five at-bats against Wood and may be worth the small FantasyScore price.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia batting second

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:43:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting second against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, Aug. 28. 2B Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been manning the outfield of late, but he rarely starts against lefties. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Friday. Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) presents an incredibly difficult matchup.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia leading off vs. Giants

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:15:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is playing left field and leading off, and OF Matt Szczur is starting in center field and batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Dexter Fowler (shin, hand) is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) made a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, Aug. 26, but with a difficult hurler on the mound, it is an opportune chance to allow him an extra day to rest his nagging injuries. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Szczur are nothing more than low-end fliers in daily contests facing Bumgarner Thursday.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler sitting out vs. Giants

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:50:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday Aug. 26. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in center field and batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Fowler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. While he is 0-for-8 over his past two games, Fowler owns a .301/.439/.544 slash line since the All-Star break with 30 runs, six home runs, 11 RBI and five stolen bases. He should be owned and started in all seasonal leagues. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a potential value play at FantasyScore, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Interestingly, Kyle Schwarber ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is batting leadoff Wednesday, but his value doesn't change with the one-spot promotion.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber sitting Sunday

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:31:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Chicago White Sox. OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and hit second in the order against LHP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has a .241 batting average against lefties this season, and he should be avoided against an ace like Sale.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out Friday

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 10:01:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has had a fine season in a reserve role for the Cubs, and he's hitting .298 (31-for-104) with both of his home runs against right-handers this year. However, he remains mainly a sleeper pick in one of your three outfield spots as a way to save some salary space.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan not starting Monday

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:49:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Monday, Aug. 3. OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) usually sits out against left-handed pitchers. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has only two hits in his last eight games, and owners should be able to find better options to use on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan sitting out

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:25:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Yohan Flande Tuesday, July 28. OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) usually sits out against left-handed pitchers, so he should return to the lineup soon. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting .264 with six RBI this month and could be a cheaper option if owners are looking to spend money on other positions.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan out vs. lefty

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:41:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, July 27. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in left field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) owns a career .250 average (6-for-24) with three RBI against De La Rosa. He hasn't been bad against lefties this year, either, so he could return nice value tonight on FantasyScore, and he'll help give you salary cap relief elsewhere.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan out of the lineup

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 09:13:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Saturday, July 25. OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting .273 with five RBI this month and could be a cheaper starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
