Cardinals | Matt Adams starting vs. Nationals

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:25:33 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and batting fourth against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg Friday, April 29. 1B/OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Adams sports an underwhelming .211/.268/.342 slash line to start the season and draws a tough matchup to turn it around with Strasburg taking the hill. View Adams as a fringe own outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, and he is a risky start in daily contests Friday. Moss figures to begin seeing more at-bats with Adams struggling, and Moss has started 2016 with a .544 slugging percentage and five home runs through 68 plate appearances.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss starting vs. Arizona

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:29:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Brandon Moss is starting in right field and batting fourth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, April 28. OFs Randal Grichuk and Jeremy Hazelbaker are not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Moss lands in a juicy matchup against De La Rosa. The hurler has allowed a .559 slugging percentage to left-handed batters dating back to the beginning of last season, and Moss has 15 runs, five home runs and 14 RBI through his past 17 games. Avoid Grichuk and Hazelbaker where you can Thursday.

Cardinals | Brandon Moss out of the lineup

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:57:08 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, April 27. 3B Matt Carpenter will start in first base, while SS Ruben Tejada will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is hitting only .143 in his limited playing time this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Kolten Wong sitting

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:26:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. 1B Brandon Moss is at first base and is hitting cleanup, while 2B Jedd Gyorko is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Moss could be a sneaky target in daily games as a sleeper against Greinke. Moss has a home run in seven at-bats against Greinke in his career. Gyorko had a big game against his old team Sunday and could be stealing more playing time away from the struggling Wong, mainly against left-handers. Despite a strong game yesterday, Gyorko is a risky daily pick against Greinke, who he has just five hits off of in 17 plate appearances.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting several starters

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 13:10:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday, 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Sunday, April 24. OF Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting third in the lineup. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in left field and is batting sixth, while 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Hazelbaker have struggled at the plate recently but could still be decent options in daily fantasy leagues because of his success earlier in the month. Gyorko is hitting .333 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and could also be an attractive starting option.

Cardinals | Matt Carpenter with day off

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:10:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter is out of the lineup Saturday, April 23, with 2B Kolten Wong sliding up into the leadoff spot. 1B Brandon Moss is also in there hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Wong is hitting just .222 but faces a relative unknown in Cesar Vargas. In the leadoff spot, he has some upside. Moss has been all or nothing with a .189-4-10 line. He's worth a midrange flyer.

Cardinals | Matt Adams draws another start

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 08:12:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is hitting cleanup Wednesday, April 20, for the second straight day. OF/1B Brandon Moss and OF Jeremy Hazelbaker are out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: "Big City" has four hits in his last 10 at-bats, including a homer, and he's a decent start against Kyle Hendricks at the right price.

Cardinals | Three Cards regulars sitting

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 12:11:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss, OF Stephen Piscotty and SS Aledmys Diaz are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. 1B Matt Adams is at first base and hitting cleanup, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker draws another start in right field and is in the two-hole, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Adams draws and can become an under-the-radar sleeper against a right-hander Tuesday in daily contests. He had all five of his long balls against righties last year. Hazelbaker has cooled off a bit but still has value in all fantasy formats as long as he's playing. Tejada is a low-end shortstop option who will steal playing time away from Diaz after coming off the DL yesterday.

Cardinals | Golden sombrero for Brandon Moss

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 23:31:05 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss was hitless in four at-bats with four strikeouts Monday, April 18, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Moss has 10 punchouts over his past five games. He has plenty of power potential for fantasy owners, but he also strikes out plenty and his poor average hurts those in rotisserie formats. Use Moss only in DFS as a low-cost play and in deeper NL-only seasonal leagues.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting five players

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:56:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker, OF Matt Holliday, C Yadier Molina, 2B Kolten Wong and SS Aledmys Diaz are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot Sunday, April 17. 1B Brandon Moss is starting in left field and is batting second. 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and is batting fifth. 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and is batting sixth. SS Greg Garcia is starting at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Eric Fryer starting at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fryer and Garcia have played well early this season but probably should not be options in most leagues. Moss, Adams and Gyorko could be used in daily fantasy leagues.
