Royals | Jarrod Dyson starting vs. Mets

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:35:36 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in left field and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Wednesday, June 22. OF Brett Eibner is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson is a one-trick pony, and his fantasy value has plummeted, as he's now splitting time with Eibner. However, when Dyson is in the lineup, he's a threat to steal bases. Eibner has posted a .303/.343/.515 slash line over 36 plate appearances to start his career and is worth a look in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain sitting out

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 10:04:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann Sunday, June 19. OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson has struggled at the plate in June and has only one RBI during that span. Dyson should still be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues because of his speed.

Royals | Brett Eibner starting in left field

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:34:01 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Brett Eibner is starting in left field and is batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Thursday, June 16. OF Jarrod Dyson will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson has been seeing semi-regular at-bats in left field with Alex Gordon out, but speed is his main asset and he struggles to reach base frequently. Consider Dyson outfield depth strictly in AL-only setups. Eibner just came off the DL Thursday and has six hits in his first 13 major league at-bats this season. Temper expectations with the small sample size, though, and consider him a desperation deep sleeper pick tonight in DFS.

Royals | Three KC regulars taking a seat

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:02:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando and 1B Kendrys Morales are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. OF Whit Merrifield is in left field and hitting leadoff, OF Reymond Fuentes is starting in right field and batting seventh and C Drew Butera is doing the catching and hitting ninth with C Salvador Perez serving as the designated hitter. Also, 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield has become a start in KC in short order with a .326 average (31-for-95), and he's homered in back-to-back games for his first two big league long balls. While he's hot, continue using him as a value pick in DFS. He's also worth adding for depth in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with everyday playing time. Fuentes, Butera and Colon all profile as low-end dart throws as deep sleepers in DFS.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson on the bench

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:24:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Sunday, June 12. OF Whit Merrifield will start in left field, while 2B Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield has posted decent numbers over the past few weeks and should be a starting candidate in some daily fantasy leagues. Colon has picked up three hits over his last two games but is not a great fantasy option for owners.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson will not start

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 08:46:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Saturday, June 11. 2B Whit Merrifield will start in left field, while 2B Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Colon picked up two hits in the last game and has a solid .271 average in limited playing time. He may have some value in daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson not playing Friday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:58:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Chris Sale Friday, June 10. OF Whit Merrifield is starting in left field and is hitting leadoff, while 2B Christian Colon draws in at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield has played very well for the Royals in 18 games, hitting .315 with no home runs, four RBI and three steals. He's also regularly batting near the top of the lineup, too, which maximizes his fantasy value. For now, though, he's an injury replacement in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues, and he's not very attractive in DFS action against the dominant Sale. Colon is a light-hitting middle infielder that should be avoided everywhere tonight.

Royals | No Jarrod Dyson Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:34:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 7. OF Reymond Fuentes is starting in left field and is hitting ninth in the order against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Tip: Fuentes is a reserve outfielder for the Royals and will see occasional starts, limiting his value to deep AL-only leagues for his speed. He has 10 hits in 30 at-bats (.333) and he had three steals in 23 games for the Padres back in 2013.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain resting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 07:03:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday, June 5. OF Jarrod Dyson will bat ninth and start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson is batting .345 in day games this season and is 4-for-13 with a pair of steals over the past seven days, so this shapes up to be a favorable matchup for him. He's worthy of consideration for DFS lineups this afternoon.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson, Omar Infante sitting

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:57:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. OF Brett Eibner is starting in left field and is hitting seventh, while OF White Merrifield is at the keystone and is batting second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield, who has 14 hits in 40 at-bats so far, has been seeing more playing time over Infante. Take note in your league if you're looking for depth in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Eibner is also off to a nice start in his first taste of the majors with five hits (two doubles) in 11 at-bats and deserves some consideration for outfield depth in AL-only universes. Neither is a very strong daily pick today against Smyly, but Merrifield has more upside in the two-hole.
