Cubs | Dexter Fowler out vs. Cards

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 12:41:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 20. OF Albert Almora is starting in center field and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Monday.

Fantasy Tip: While Fowler has cooled after a blistering start, he's remained an excellent five-category contributor worth stashing in all setups. To date, Fowler has 41 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI, six stolen bases and a .290/.398/.483 slash line. Almora has been exceptional since being promoted from Class AAA Iowa with a .346/.370/.500 line over 27 plate appearances. He should be added in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler not playing

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 13:06:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon Sunday, June 19. OF Jason Heyward will start in center field, while 3B Kris Bryant will start in right field. SS Javier Baez will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Baez has been on a bit of a cold streak with a .182 batting average over the last seven days. He does have three home runs and 12 RBI so far this month and should still be an attractive option in fantasy leagues despite his recent struggles. Heyward and Bryant should be starters in all leagues.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler takes a seat

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:22:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 15, with 2B Ben Zobrist hitting leadoff. OF Albert Almora is hitting sixth and playing center field.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist has cooled considerably with a .194-1-3 line, and he's facing Stephen Strasburg, who owns the Cubs. He's still a high-end consideration on merit, but assess the risks at your discretion. The rookie Almora is 4-for-12 (.333) with three RBI and is a low-end consideration.

Cubs | Trio post three-hit games vs. Phils

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 20:48:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant, OF Dexter Fowler and 1B Anthony Rizzo each posted three hits in the win against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, June 6. Fowler posted two runs scored, while Bryant had two runs scored and an RBI and Rizzo drove in a pair.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant and Fowler have had strong seasons across the board, while Rizzo's average could use a little work at .260. However, a few more games like this and he'll be just fine. Fantasy owners cannot complain about either of the three.
