Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Chris Coghlan is on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will likely be in the outfield mix before too long as he was just activated from the 15-day disabled list. Coghlan is listed as No. 1 on the LF depth chart, but keep an eye on Denorfia moving forward. He has two hits in three at-bats and could move into a platoon with Coghlan against left-handed pitchers.

Chicago Cubs OF Matt Szczur is making his season debut in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek Friday, April 10. Szczur is starting in left field and batting sixth in place of OF Chris Coghlan.
Fantasy Tip: Szczur ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a reach for a FantasyScore roster spot in his first start of the 2015 season against a left-handed pitcher. It's best to look elsewhere.

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan (toe) was not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 18, against the New York Mets, as manager Rick Renteria wanted to give the outfielder a break. "We've been pushing him pretty hard," Renteria said. Coghlan has been playing with a sore left big toe.

The Chicago Cubs are expected to keep OF Chris Coghlan, rather than dealing him at the trade deadline, as it is believed they need outfielders next year who can hit more than a second-tier prospect.

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan has made the most of his playing time since OF Emilio Bonifacio (oblique) went on the disabled list Friday, June 13. Coghlan has 21 runs, four home runs, 13 RBIs and three stolen bases, with a .337/.406/.596 slash line during the span.
Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio is rehabbing and should return soon, cutting into Coghlan's playing time. Given Coghlan's recent offensive contributions, he is still in play in deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats.

The Chicago Cubs placed OF Emilio Bonifacio (rib cage) on the disabled list Friday, June 13.
Fantasy Tip: Chris Coghlan is the likely candidate to benefit the most with Bonifacio's move to the infirmary. However, with Ryan Sweeney (hamstring) expected to return soon, that could complicate things. Coghlan is worth considering in NL-only leagues.
