Padres | Wil Myers using the whole field

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 09:55:16 -0700

Of San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers' first 83 hits this year, 37.6% went to left field, 37.6% to center field and 24.8% went to right field. "Everybody I've always talked to says he's a good kid, and he's obviously gifted," a National League scout said. "But he's kind of a laid-back kid, and I think he took some stuff for granted. There's a level of maturity going on with him now that I hadn't seen the last couple of years."

Fantasy Tip: Myers' maturity as a hitter has been on display this year, and he's having a breakout season in 2016 with a .282/.336/.520 slash line, 17 home runs and 50 RBI. He's a must-start fantasy first baseman in all formats. He's also swiped 10 bags.

Padres | Wil Myers likely staying

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 08:23:50 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers has had minimal dialogue on him in trade talks, and he's likely to remain with the Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Myers has had a big first half with a .292-16-44 line and nine steals. One would think he'd benefit from leaving the cavernous Petco Park. However his home/road splits are drastic at home with a .337-11-30 line and a .219-5-14 line on the road. He remains a high-end 1B/OF option.

Padres | Wil Myers posts three XBH

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 22:54:34 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a solo home run, two runs scored and three RBIs Saturday, June 18, against the Washington Nationals. Myers also posted his ninth stolen base of the season. He is the third player in franchise history with at least nine homers in June, joining Greg Vaughn (10 in 1998) and Steve Finley (nine in 1996 and 1997). He also has 11 homers in 39 home games.

Fantasy Tip: Myers had a great day, and is now hitting .291 on the season with 16 homers and 44 RBIs. He is healthy and he already has set a career high in homers and stolen bases. He needs just 10 RBIs to set a new career high in that category, too. He is finally living up to his immense potential and is a must-start across the board in fantasy and DFS play.

Padres | Wil Myers up for grabs?

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 09:25:35 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is a player the Padres are open to dealing, according to sources. Myers has career highs of 14 homers and eight steals this year.

Fantasy Tip: Myers is having a career year in the first half, but he would benefit getting out of cavernous Petco Park. Myers just has to prove whether this stretch is a sign of his development or fool's gold. He's a midrange first baseman in fantasy.

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 21:47:08 -0700

Padres | Wil Myers stays hot, slugs two homers

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 16:35:08 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers continued his hot hitting as of late by going 2-for-4 with two solo home runs Wednesday, June 8. He now has 12 homers on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Owners who selected Myers late in drafts are being handsomely rewarded for their great decision, especially in June, in which he remarkably now has seven multi-hit efforts this month -- in eight games. It's arguably the hottest streak going right now of any major league hitter, so owners should just keep firing him up in all leagues. Myers looks like he could be San Diego's lone All-Star representative.
