Reds | Zack Cozart sitting out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 07:24:48 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 29, with OF Billy Hamilton hitting leadoff. SS Jose Peraza is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton is hitting .281 with a couple of homers this month after a massively slow start. He has 19 steals as well, but that doesn't factor into DFS as much. He's a lower-middle option against Kyle Hendricks. Peraza is hitting .255 with seven steals in 47 at-bats. He has swiped a bag in three straight games. He's a better traditional league guy than a DFS option.

Reds | Zack Cozart stuffs the box score

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:13:07 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart finished 2-for-4 with a two-run triple, a solo homer and scored three times against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart is doing yeoman's work out of the leadoff spot in Cincy, hitting .284 with 11 home runs and 30 RBI. He is started to turn around a rough start to June by putting together a modest five-game hitting streak and has homered twice in the last three games. Although he is just outside the top 10 shortstops, it is unlikely he's the weak link in any fantasy lineup and makes for a great option in the middle infielder slot.

Reds | Zack Cozart, Eugenio Suarez resting

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 12:21:58 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart and 3B Eugenio Suarez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. 2B Jose Peraza is starting at shortstop and is hitting leadoff, while 2B Ivan De Jesus is at the keystone and is batting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart and Suarez have both cooled off at the plate lately, so they're due for a breather. Act accordingly and bench them everywhere. Peraza is a notable prospect for Cincy with an intriguing power-speed combination, and he could fly under the radar as a notable sleeper in DFS. Depending on how much playing time he receives, he's worth a look in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. De Jesus isn't worth your time in daily setups.

Reds | Zack Cozart has cooled off

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 12:02:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart hit .310 in his first 46 games of the season, but he's hitting .133 (4-for-30) in his last eight games. Cozart is batting .323 (31-for-96) in 27 career games against the Atlanta Braves. Cozart and the Reds play the Braves starting Monday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Cozart's recent cold streak, he remains one of the more valuable fantasy shortstop because of his overall numbers. He's batting .284 with nine home runs and 25 RBI and is proving that his power improvement in 2015 before his season-ending surgery was real. Stick with him in all formats.

Reds | Zack Cozart continues to struggle

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 15:57:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is in a 1-for-18 slump at the plate, including an 0-for-15 mark he snapped Sunday, June 12, with a single.

Fantasy Tip: Whatever fantasy value Cozart had in previous years was squandered this season. He has struggled mightily at the plate, but Cincinnati has also endured bad years from other people and injuries such as Devin Mesoraco. Cozart should be left off your roster until he cleans up at the plate.

Reds | Zack Cozart homers again

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 21:47:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart went 2-for-5 with a home run against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, June 8. It was his third long ball this month.

Fantasy Tip: That gives Cozart four jacks in his last nine games, going 13-for-36 (.361) with nine RBI and eight runs scored during that stretch. He's hitting well above his career mark this season so this probably won't last, but he'd at least be an interesting short-term solution in larger mixed leagues.

Reds | Zack Cozart, Billy Hamilton out Sunday

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 08:22:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart and OF Billy Hamilton are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark Sunday, June 5. OF Tyler Holt will play center field and bat leadoff, while INF Ivan De Jesus bats seventh and plays shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Holt has five hits in his last 11 at-bats, while De Jesus is 5-for-15 at the plate over the last two weeks. Both players can be viewed as potential sources of productive cap relief for daily fantasy lineups.

Reds | Zack Cozart has three-hit game

Tue, 31 May 2016 00:02:11 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart went 3-for-6 with a double, home run, two runs scored and two RBIs Monday, May 30, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart raised his average to .297 and he has decent pop for a middle infielder. He is a must-start fantasy option in NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.

Reds | Eugenio Suarez, Zack Cozart out Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 08:36:53 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 3B Eugenio Suarez and SS Zack Cozart are not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday, May 29. OF/3B Adam Duvall will play the hot corner and bat fifth, OF Tyler Holt will play left field and bat sixth and INF Ivan De Jesus will bat seventh and play shortstop. In addition, OF Billy Hamilton is back in the lineup, leading off and playing center field.

Fantasy Tip: Duvall is batting .300 with nine home runs and 21 RBI over the last four weeks and is an excellent option in all fantasy formats. Hamilton, Holt and De Jesus have struggled at the plate lately and can be avoided this afternoon.

Reds | Zack Cozart not in Saturday's lineup

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:32:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Saturday, May 21. INF Ivan De Jesus will play shortstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus is hitting just .167 with a home run and five RBI in 48 at-bats this year and isn't a recommended fantasy option this afternoon, especially with King Felix penciled in as the opposing pitcher.
