Cardinals | Jason Heyward resting vs. southpaw

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:33:29 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19. OF Randal Grichuk is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.

Fantasy Tip: Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hasn't seen much success in the major leagues early in his career, but he has the tools to produce with enough playing time. Right-handed batters have a .280/.329/.424 slash line off Niese this season, so Grichuk could be a sleeper play that pays off at FantasyScore tonight.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward relegated to seven-hole

Mon, 18 May 2015 12:37:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is batting seventh against the New York Mets Monday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has struggled to generate consistent production this season, and he is currently mired in a 3-for-19 funk over his past six games. Until Heyward can string together a solid stretch at the dish, he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option. Take note of the potentially difficult matchup against Matt Harvey Monday, too.

Sun, 17 May 2015 16:30:15 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward will hit in the leadoff spot for the first time this season against the Detroit Tigers Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has struggled when hitting near the top of the lineup this season, and he is hitting just .208 in 72 at-bats from the No. 2 spot. It remains to be seen how he will handle leadoff duties, and he should probably be avoided at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward will not start

Sat, 16 May 2015 08:42:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 16. OF Randal Grichuk will start in right field for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Grichuk ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has not played since the middle of April and should not be an option on FantasyScore at this time.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward dropped to eighth

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:15:10 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward was dropped to eighth in the order Thursday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,000, 8.0% of your cap) is actually hitting .318 the last week and .300 in May, but he hasn't hit for many extra bases. At his price point, he doesn't have a lot of luster until his power ignites.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward coming around

Fri, 08 May 2015 07:32:59 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward was 11-for-33 (.333) with 11 runs scored in the team's 11-game homestand.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward's ($4,000, 8.0% of your cap) shift from second to sixth and seventh in the order has provided results, but he's still sitting on a meager .246-2-6 line on the season. He has just six extra-base hits in 27 games since the season opener. His price isn't too prohibitive on FantasyScore to see if the increased contact leads to more authoritative contact.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward will not play

Sat, 02 May 2015 08:54:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals are facing a left-handed pitcher, which is the likely reason for Heyward ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) not in the lineup. Peter Bourjos ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward bumped down lineup

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:47:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward is batting sixth against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 29, for the second consecutive game.

Fantasy Tip: While Heyward ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) didn't have a huge hand in the Cards' 11-run outburst Tuesday, April 28, he did reach base four times and score two runs. Look for Heyward to stick lower in the lineup as long as the team is producing. It should improve Heyward's RBI upside and slightly hurt him in the runs category.

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:53:48 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jason Heyward (groin) is back in the lineup and is hitting sixth on Tuesday, April 28, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has gotten off to a slow start in his new surroundings, with a .192 average and not much pop in the last week. You may want to hold off and see how Heyward does in the next game or two before putting any money on him.

Cardinals | Jason Heyward sitting out

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:45:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Heyward ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is dealing with a groin injury but it is not known how long he will be out. Mark Reynolds ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is taking his place in the starting lineup but may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
