Braves | Chris Johnson not in the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:08:27 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, July 26. 3B Adonis Garcia will start at third base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Garcia has gone 1-for-4 since joining the Braves and should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Braves | Chris Johnson starting in 1B

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:12:13 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson will start at first base against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Tuesday, July 21, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely is in the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. He is hitting .250 this month but has not recorded an RBI in his last 23 games, so owners should be able to find better options.

Braves | Chris Johnson playing first base

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 11:45:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves INF Chris Johnson will start at first base and bat fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Saturday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .362 versus lefties this season and is 1-for-5 against Lester in his career. He is a notable source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners Saturday.

Braves | Juan Uribe returns to action

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 10:36:23 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Juan Uribe is batting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, July 11. INF Chris Johnson, who started at the hot corner Friday, will play first base Saturday and bat cleanup, with INF Kelly Johnson getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 7-for-33 in his career against De La Rosa but is batting .292 since joining the Braves and is hitting .321 away from home this season, making him one of the biggest bargains in FantasyScore. Chris Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is another potential source of cap-friendly production this afternoon, with a .455 mark over the past week and two hits in three career at-bats against De La Rosa.

Braves | Chris Johnson draws into lineup

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 12:56:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a very acceptable sleeper pick on FantasyScore while playing at Coors Field tonight against Kendrick. Kendrick sports a 6.70 ERA and has allowed 13 home runs in seven games at Coors this season.

Braves | Kelly Johnson not in the lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:39:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 5. Chris Johnson will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Chris Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded a hit in only four of his last 16 games and probably should not be considered a starting option on FantasyScore.

Braves | Chris Johnson receives start

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:52:59 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson will start at first base against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Sunday, June 28, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has at least one hit in three of his last five games but is hitting only .171 this month. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use at the position.

Braves | Chris Johnson batting cleanup

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:20:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is playing first base and batting fourth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Johnson's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) only saving grace in fantasy is his work against southpaws. Through 28 plate appearances, he has a 1.021 OPS. Just note, it is a small sample size, and he is also currently riding a 4-for-26 slide at the plate. FantasyScore players should likely aim higher Friday.

Braves | Chris Johnson, Kelly Johnson at 1B

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 10:44:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson and OF Kelly Johnson are likely to fill in at first base with 1B Freddie Freeman (wrist) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Johnson is particularly attractive to owners outside of deep mixed and NL-only leagues, and they could form a platoon at first base over the next couple of weeks. At FantasyScore, they are both midrange sleeper picks based on matchups.

Braves | Chris Johnson starting vs. Mets

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:45:41 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is playing third base and batting fifth against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has a .233 batting average and .616 OPS for the season, and he is just 5-for-30 since returning from injury Wednesday, May 27. FantasyScore players need to target a third baseman with more upside Friday, especially with Johnson facing deGrom.
