Cubs | Chris Denorfia leading off vs. Giants

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:15:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is playing left field and leading off, and OF Matt Szczur is starting in center field and batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Dexter Fowler (shin, hand) is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) made a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, Aug. 26, but with a difficult hurler on the mound, it is an opportune chance to allow him an extra day to rest his nagging injuries. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Szczur are nothing more than low-end fliers in daily contests facing Bumgarner Thursday.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler sitting out vs. Giants

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:50:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday Aug. 26. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in center field and batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Fowler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. While he is 0-for-8 over his past two games, Fowler owns a .301/.439/.544 slash line since the All-Star break with 30 runs, six home runs, 11 RBI and five stolen bases. He should be owned and started in all seasonal leagues. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a potential value play at FantasyScore, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Interestingly, Kyle Schwarber ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is batting leadoff Wednesday, but his value doesn't change with the one-spot promotion.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler on a hot streak

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 09:48:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is 13-for-39 (.333 batting average) with 13 walks and five strikeouts (.500 on-base percentage), a .436 slugging percentage and a .936 OPS in his last 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is an affordable daily play on FantasyScore while the bat is hot, especially against left-handed pitching. He is batting .321 with a .400 OBP and a .797 OPS against left-handers for the season. In yearly leagues, nine home runs and 16 stolen bases are solid, but the .237 batting average makes him a fourth or fifth outfielder in standard leagues. The Cubs have a crowded offensive lineup so pay close attention to their roster moves and Fowler's at-bats the rest of the way.

Fantasy Tip: Fortunately, Fowler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) doesn't appear to be seriously injured, as evidenced by the fact that he continued playing. The Reds are off Thursday, July 23, but expect him to be back in the lineup Friday, July 24.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler will lead off Tuesday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:39:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler will bat leadoff Tuesday, July 7, against left-handed St. Louis Cardinals SPs Tyler Lyons and Tim Cooney, according to manager Joe Maddon. Maddon noted Fowler was not leading off Monday, July 6 to, "just take some heat off him and work on what he needs to work on."

Fantasy Tip: Currently riding a 8-for-51 slump, Fowler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been struggling. There is a chance he will flip flop up and down the lineup over the next few weeks, but all that really changes is he'll trade runs scored upside for RBI opportunities.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler dropped in the order

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:33:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is mired in an 8-for-51 slump, so a move down the order might help him restart his punch at the dish. It'll also help his RBI opportunities, which could be a nice boost for his seasonal owners. Until he heats up, FantasyScore players should likely fade Fowler.
