Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton goes deep

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 19:06:27 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a 4-2 win over the Chicago Cubs Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton has two homers in his last three games and four multi-hit efforts in his last sox contests. He was due for a hot streak after his rough start to the year, and it is time to start considering him in DFS formats again.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton on the rebound

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 19:46:54 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton bottomed out at .192 with a .714 OPS June 12. Stanton was bothered by right knee soreness in spring training, and that led to his swing getting out of sync as he compensated with his upper body, causing recent soreness in his right side. Manager Don Mattingly predicted last week that Stanton was about to get hot, and the outfielder collected six hits in 12 at-bats in the three-game set against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: A hot streak cannot come a moment too soon for Stanton's nervous fantasy owners. He is supposed to carry fantasy teams, but right now he is weighing many down like an anchor. You can't trade him, as his fantasy value is at its nadir, and you certainly cannot ever considering dropping him. Wait it out and hope Donnie Baseball's prediction is correct.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton turning corner?

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 13:58:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton has six hits in the series against the Colorado Rockies, all singles. His average now stands at .211.

Fantasy Tip: Granted, that's not the best news you want to hear, but Stanton is hitting at least. That's what makes it so hard to sit this slugger, for fear that Stanton's bat will suddenly explode. Wait and see if this upturn is an aberration or a sign of good things to come.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out of the lineup

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:05:04 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 15, with OF Ichiro Suzuki leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton is sitting against his second straight right-hander in what has been the worst slump of his career. He's hitting .119 in June and .194 on the year. Suzuki is hitting .412 this month, but singles hitters don't do a lot of damage in DFS. He's a low-end option against Luis Perdomo.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton continues to struggle

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 12:30:38 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton hit .293 with a .662 slugging percentage against fly balls in 2015, with a 23.9% miss rate. This season, Stanton is at .200 (.411 slugging, 31.3% miss rate).

Fantasy Tip: This is further evidence that Stanton continues to scrape rock bottom and sink heavily. Stanton just appears lost at the plate. Do you continue to play him in fantasy? You may want to avoid him in DFS games, but the temptation is there to keep him in your lineup in regular leagues. You never know when the bat will suddenly heat up.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton sitting Monday

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 15:35:33 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (rest) is not in the lineup Monday, June 13, versus San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in his place in right field and bat leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton has just four hits -- none being homers -- in 39 at-bats this month, which is good for a disgusting .103 batting average. As a result, it seems like the team is trying to give him a mental break in this one, which is about the only thing you can do for a star slugger like Stanton. Ichiro, meanwhile, has been terrific this year, owning a .336/.394/.397 line with six steals, so he could be a fine value play for daily leagues this evening.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton continues to struggle

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 04:21:56 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton was 0-for-5 with four strikeouts Thursday, June 9, as the Marlins scored a 10-3 win over the Minnesota Twins. Stanton is now hitting .197.

Fantasy Tip: This is a major dilemma for fantasy owners. Stanton is played in a ton of fantasy leagues. Ordinarily your advice would be sit him down. But Stanton should be played, mainly because he could break out of this slump at any time and go on a terrifying hitting binge. Stanton will get every chance to pull out of this rut, what with the money he's getting paid.

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 08:11:09 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki is hitting .350 through 60 at-bats out of the leadoff spot this year and is 21-for-57 (.412) at Marlins Park this season, making him an excellent value play for daily fantasy contests.
