Blue Jays | Justin Smoak on the bench

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 08:38:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Saturday, June 25. 1B Edwin Encarnacion will start at first base, while 3B Josh Donaldson will serve as the designated hitter. 2B Ryan Goins will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Goins is hitting only .175 this season and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Encarnacion and Donaldson should be a starter in all fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak not starting

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:04:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Sunday, June 19. 1B Edwin Encarnacion will start at first base Sunday. 3B Josh Donaldson will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Darwin Barney will start at third base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Barney has been a bit inconsistent at the plate over the last few weeks and has four hits in his last six games. Barney can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues but probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson extends streak

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 19:46:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson extended his hitting streak to 10 games, finishing 2-for-4 with a home run, a triple, three RBI, three runs scored and a walk in a 13-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson has four straight multi-hit games, and he has three homers, nine RBI and 11 runs scored over that span. He should be a staple of DFS lineups while he is swinging a hot bat.

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 17:33:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with one home run and five RBI against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson has been able to drive in 12 runs in his last seven games and has at least one hit in each of those seven games. He is one of the best third baseman in fantasy and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin, Devon Travis playing

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:25:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin and 2B Devon Travis are back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Sunday, June 12. In addition, INF Darwin Barney will bat ninth and play third base, while 3B Josh Donaldson serves as the designated hitter. 1B Justin Smoak is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is batting .254 with four home runs and 10 RBI over the past four weeks after a horrendous start and has gotten his average for the season above the Mendoza line (.204). Travis is just 3-for-33 (.091) over the past two weeks and should be avoided in DFS for now. Barney is batting .320 this year over 42 games, including a .408 mark at Rogers Centre, and makes an excellent source of salary cap relief.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson drives in three

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:15:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson was hitless in his last 10 at-bats entering the game, but it appears that he has broken out of his mini slump with three hits Wednesday. His batting average is down a bit from his 2015 season, but he should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson returns to action

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:44:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Sunday, June 5, batting second and serving as the designated hitter. INF Matt Dominguez will bat eighth and play third base, with INF Darwin Barney playing shortstop and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Dominguez is hitless in seven at-bats with the Jays in 2016 and should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier. Barney is 5-for-16 (.313) over the past week and is hitting .320 overall this year, making him a productive source of cap relief in DFS contests this afternoon.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson bothered by thumb

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 17:25:36 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (thumb) aggravated a right thumb injury Friday, June 3, but the team is hopeful he won't need a stint on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: While it doesn't sound like the injury is too serious, it also sounds like it could be more than a one-day absence. Keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson receiving day off

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 10:55:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Saturday, June 4. INF Darwin Barney will bat eighth and play the hot corner, while INF Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and bat ninth. In addition, C Russell Martin is back in the lineup as the No. 6 hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson is probably receiving an off day because the club is facing a knuckleballer, so he should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Barney is batting .314 over the last four weeks and .386 versus righties, making him a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Martin has also played better recently, going 8-for-33 with a double, three home runs and six RBI over the last two weeks. Goins can be avoided in all fantasy formats this afternoon.

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:28:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 4-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI and two runs scored in a 7-5 win over the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: His average is down a bit from his MVP season last year, but Donaldson is still providing excellent numbers in the other offensive categories. Expect more big nights at the plate going forward.
