Dodgers | Justin Turner back in lineup

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:18:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (hamstring) is back in the lineup Wednesday, June 29. He's starting at third base and batting third opposite Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra.

Fantasy Tip: Turner had to leave Monday's game early due to a hamstring cramp, but as it turns out, the ailment only cost him one contest. The Dodgers will gladly take that, as the 31-year-old has been enjoying by far his best month of the season. In 24 games in June, Turner is hitting .278 with eight home runs and 22 RBI.

Dodgers | Justin Turner expected back Wednesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:26:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (hamstring) is expected to return to play Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Turner suffered a hammy cramp during the game Monday, but it's not serious. As expected, he's struggled to match his numbers from a breakout 2015 campaign, but Turner has turned it on of late and is hitting .278 with eight home runs and 22 RBI in the month of June. Return him to your lineups if he's back Wednesday.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:42:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (hamstring) is not starting Tuesday, June 28, against the Milwaukee Brewers. SS Chris Taylor will play third base and bat eighth against Brewers SP Chase Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Turner suffered a hamstring cramp on Monday and the team said he was day-to-day, so this is likely precautionary. Taylor just got called up from Class AAA Oklahoma City, so give him some at-bats before assessing his value. Barring injury, he projects as a pure backup infielder.

Dodgers | Justin Turner cracks three-run homer

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 23:17:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner finished 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, walk and two runs scored Saturday, June 18, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Turner has turned up the intensity, smacking six homers with 13 RBIs over the past 11 games since June 6. He is an outstanding fantasy option across the board while running hot, especially in head-to-head formats. In rotisserie, he is slightly less valuable due to his poor batting average.

Dodgers | Justin Turner homers twice

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 00:35:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs and a walk-off single against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Turner was a one-man wrecking machine for the Dodgers, driving in all three runs in their 3-2 extra-innings win. Over his last 10 games, Turner is 13-for-38 (.342) with five home runs, 10 RBI and six runs scored. Now that he's heating up, Turner could be worth a look in deeper mixed setups.

Dodgers | Justin Turner takes a seat

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 15:57:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at the hot corner and is batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like just a normal day off for Turner Thursday. Make sure to take him out of all starting lineups. Kendrick has been very mediocre in a super utility role in 2016, hitting .232/.289/.299 with two home runs and 11 RBI. At this point he's become a low-end daily pick and is only useful for his multiposition eligibility in cavernous mixed and NL leagues.

Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars sitting

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:30:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at second base and is hitting fifth, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and is batting third and C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and hitting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood. Also, 3B Justin Turner is in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has solidified everyday playing time with a .279 average and nine home runs on the year. He has become a viable option in most fantasy formats now. Kendrick is in a nice run-producing spot in the lineup but remains more of a low-end daily pick, as does Ellis. Turner has struggled to produce his numbers from a season ago and loses valuable RBI chances while hitting leadoff, making him a lackluster DFS selection tonight.

Dodgers | Justin Turner not in the lineup

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 11:45:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Sunday, June 5. 2B Howie Kendrick will start at third base and is batting fifth, while OF Enrique Hernandez will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has three hits in his last nine games and has gone hitless in his last 13 at-bats. Owners probably should look for other options for their lineup. Hernandez has three hits and one RBI in the last four games but is only hitting .211 this season. He does not appear to be a strong fantasy option in most leagues.
