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.

Dodgers | Justin Turner sticking in three-hole

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 16:20:15 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he is sticking with 3B Justin Turner (.225) in the three-hole in the batting order because of Turner's .327 on-base percentage.

Fantasy Tip: Turner came into 2016 in an uphill battle to recreate his career year in 2015 in which he hit .294/.370/.491 with 16 home runs and 60 RBI. He's the unquestioned starter at third base, which automatically makes him corner infield depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. He's probably not this bad, but don't expect a full bounceback to 2015 levels.

Dodgers | L.A. better on the road

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 11:04:05 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are a much better hitting team on the road than at home this year. They are averaging 3.44 runs per game at home (ranked 26th) compared to 5.11 on the road, which ranks fourth. 3B Justin Turner, 2B Howie Kendrick, OF Yasiel Puig, OF Joc Pederson and 1B Adrian Gonzalez are all hitting .211 or lower at Dodger Stadium.

Fantasy Tip: Take note of these numbers when streaming pitchers or looking for a nice value play as your second starter in daily setups.

Dodgers | Justin Turner with a day off

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:47:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at third and batting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Nobody should be looking to roll with Kendrick in daily setups Tuesday against one of the best all-around pitchers in baseball.
