Cubs | Ben Zobrist continues on-base streak

Tue, 24 May 2016 00:33:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist extended his streak of games on base to 29 with three hits and a walk Monday, May 23, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Zobrist is hitting .387 during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist is wielding a strong bat and an ability to get on base with ease. That's a solid combination and it makes Zobrist a player with increased fantasy value. Since he has demonstrated an ability to reach base in nearly 30 straight games, it stands to reason his overall numbers will be higher.

Cubs | Jorge Soler draws another start

Sat, 21 May 2016 13:44:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is in the starting lineup Saturday, May 21, against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain, making his third straight start in left field and will bat fifth. 2B Ben Zobrist will shift from his usual spot at second base to right field to replace injured OF Jason Heyward and hit fourth. Javier Baez will move over from third to replace Zobrist at the keystone and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: The only question in regards to the Cubs' lineup following Heyward's injury was whether Kris Bryant or Zobrist would move to the outfield. Today, it is Zobrist, who is getting rewarded with a shot at the cleanup spot after hitting safely in 16 of his last 17 games. Soler has endured a miserable season so far (.200), although he has shown signs of life over the last three games. Baez is hitless in his last 15 at-bats. As a result, only Zobrist should be trusted of this bunch in most fantasy lineups until further notice.

Cubs | Ben Zobrist living on base

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:34:05 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist has reached base safely in each of his last 25 starts dating back to Monday, April 18, and he has a .382 batting average over his past 26 games.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist is defying any preseason critics with 29 runs, five home runs, 28 RBI, two stolen bases and a .328/.447/.500 slash line through his first 36 games. It is unlikely the 35-year-old veteran is going to maintain his current pace, but he is hitting in a great lineup and should continue to post a solid five-category return. Start him confidently in all fantasy formats.

Cubs | Ben Zobrist remains hot

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:56:08 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist has a .432/.526/.750 slash line with four home runs, 18 RBI and five strikeouts in his last 13 games.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist tore the cover off the baseball last week as the Cubbies' hottest hitter by far. His average is up to .317 on the year, and he has five total homers and 28 RBI on the season. While the power show won't last, Zobrist should continue to put up respectable counting stats across the board while hitting in this potent lineup.

Cubs | Ben Zobrist keeps racking up hits

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:18:08 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist went 2-for-3 in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader opposite the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, May 11. He added an RBI, a run scored and two walks.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist was hitting .212 as recent as April 20, but he's been scorching since then, collecting at least one hit in all but two games from that point on to raise his batting average for the season nearly 100 points. He's also now 12-for-20 in his last six contests with three home runs, 12 RBI, nine runs scored and seven walks. Clearly, Zobrist is locked in and should be fired up in all formats.

Wed, 11 May 2016 14:52:08 -0700

Cubs | Dexter Fowler takes a seat

Wed, 11 May 2016 07:35:44 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is out of the lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 11, with OF Jorge Soler hitting fifth. 2B Ben Zobrist moved up to hit leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: He's 11-for-22 (.500) with four homers, 14 RBI and nine runs the last seven days. He should be an easy decision in DFS against Colin Rea. Soler is hitting just .181 on the season and .133 this month. He's a risky lower-middle option today.

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist went 2-for-2 with three runs, two home runs, four RBI and two walks during the Cubs' 8-6 win over the Washington Nationals Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist has hit four home runs through his past three games with four runs and 11 RBI. He is a consistent hitter, but he is also capable of putting together these hot stretches. Start him confidently in all fantasy formats, and this nice run has him sitting with 20 runs, five home runs, 24 RBI and a .277/.398/.489 slash line for the season.
