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.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler, Ben Zobrist resting

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:22:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler and 2B Ben Zobrist will not be in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon Sunday, April 24. INF Tommy La Stella will lead off and play second base, OF Jason Heyward will play center field and bat second, OF Jorge Soler will bat fifth and play right field and OF Matt Szczur will start in left field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler is off to an excellent start at the plate this year, batting .385 with three homers and 13 RBI through his first 65 at-bats, but fantasy owners will have to do without the contributions of him and Zobrist Sunday afternoon. La Stella and Szczur are a combined 11-for-35 (.314) at the dish this season with a home run and eight RBI and should be viewed as inexpensive fliers for daily contests.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler producing for Cubs

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:50:19 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler has reached base safely in each of his 15 games for the Cubs this year and is hitting .392 with a .523 on-base percentage and 11 runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler could wind up being one of the biggest values of any mid-round fantasy pick this year after he wound up returning to the Cubbies. His ability to get on base often while also hitting for average and power with some speed plays exceptionally well at the top of this potent lineup. Keep running him out there with confidence.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler shines offensively

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 23:31:46 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler had a double and solo home run in five at-bats Monday, April 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals to raise his average to .378.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler has managed three homers and 10 RBIs out of the leadoff spot on the north side. He is a tremendous fantasy option in all formats, although you can certainly expect him to slow down significantly. He won't maintain his insane .711 slugging percentage, as he has a .421 SLG over his career, and he has been at .411 or under in each of his past three seasons. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler continues torrid start

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 14:13:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler went 1-for-3 with a three-run blast in the seventh inning off Colorado Rockies RP David Hale on Saturday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler has been held hitless in only two of his 10 starts this season and already has five multiple-hit efforts, leading to a glowing .417 batting average atop Chicago's lineup. Although some regression is inevitable, he appears well on his way to improving upon last season's .250 mark. Even if he hits a rough patch in the next few days, Fowler needs to remain in lineups for the foreseeable future.
