Dodgers | A.J. Ellis in, Yasmani Grandal out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:48:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal is mired in yet another extensive slump, with just nine hits in 55 at-bats this month to bring his season average down to .178. As a result, Ellis has been drawing more starts, but as they both continue to split time at catcher, each player's value goes down over the long term. Grandal's ceiling is always worthwhile, though, so certainly keep an eye on his progress in deep leagues.

Dodgers | Monday Dodgers lineup light

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:04:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Monday, June 27. OF Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting third, 1B Scott Van Slyke is hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis hit seventh and SS Chris Taylor hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has struggled this month, but he has upside in the three-hole against Francisco Liriano. Hernandez and Van Slyke are worth low-end consideration against the lefty. Ellis and Taylor don't move the needle much.

Dodgers | Four Dodgers take a seat

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:52:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and 2B Howie Kendrick are out of the lineup Saturday, June 25. 2B Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting cleanup, OF Scott Van Slyke hits seventh and C A.J. Ellis is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting just .195, but most of his power comes against lefties. He and Van Slyke are low-end flyers against lefty Jeff Locke. Thompson has cooled way off, but he has upside hitting cleanup. Ellis isn't worth a DFS flyer today.

Nationals | Tanner Roark solid in loss

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:44:01 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark allowed three earned runs, six hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday, June 21, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He made one mistake in the eighth inning, serving up a three-run home run to C Yasmani Grandal.

Fantasy Tip: Roark has been a bit erratic in the month of June, posting a 2-1 record with a 4.63 ERA over four starts. Despite the loss he still has a 3.18 ERA and solid 1.22 WHIP this season, and remains a solid fantasy option.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal provides the heroics

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:43:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal cracked a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday, June 21, against the Washington Nationals to propel his team to a comeback 3-2 victory.

Fantasy Tip: While Grandal has two homers and 11 RBIs over the past 14 games, he is still hitting just .183 on the season. He is still best used as a No. 2 fantasy backstop in NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not starting

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 11:43:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Sunday, June 19. C A.J. Ellis will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis is hitting only .196 in his limited playing time this season and likely can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars sitting out

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:30:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, June 15. 2B Howie Kendrick is at second base and is hitting sixth, OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting seventh and C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick and Van Slyke don't move the fantasy needle all that much but could be successful value plays in DFS if you're looking to save a little salary cap space against the lefty. Ellis is a light-hitting catcher that should be ignored.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting Sunday night

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:41:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy on Sunday, June 12. C A.J. Ellis will give Grandal a rest behind the plate after he started the last two games behind the plate and will bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis is 1-for-7 all-time against Peavy and can be ignored in this matchup outside of perhaps NL-only leagues. The only active Dodgers with any kind of significant success in at least 10 career at-bats against Peavy are Adrian Gonzalez, who is hitting .269 with three homers off the right-hander, and Howie Kendrick, who is 3-for-10 lifetime versus Peavy.

Dodgers | Four Dodgers regulars sitting out

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:27:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, SS Corey Seager, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Wednesday, June 8. C Austin Barnes is starting at second base and is hitting eighth, OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop and is batting leadoff, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and hitting cleanup and C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers typically sit a handful of their lefty hitters against southpaws. After Thompson's walkoff blast last night, he now has 10 homers and 22 RBI on the year and has carved out an everyday role. He's a great player to have in daily lineups this evening. Hernandez's daily value soars while hitting leadoff, too, and he's a fine value play. Barnes and Ellis are light-hitting catchers that are low-end DFS clicks.

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.
