Indians | Francisco Lindor on a tear

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:09:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor is hitting .378 (17-for-45) with seven runs scored in his last 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor has really impressed after a stellar rookie season, and his slash line is up to .318/.372/.413 with three home runs and 20 RBI. Don't expect him to top his 12 bombs from last season, but the young shortstop is proving he's one of the best at his position. He's not starting Wednesday, so replace him in your lineups. But when he's playing he's a must-start in all formats.

Indians | Francisco Lindor pads boxscore

Tue, 03 May 2016 19:41:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 Tuesday, May 3, against the Detroit Tigers, cranking his second home run of the season to go along with a double. He finished with three runs scored and three RBI.

Fantasy Tip: When it comes to shortstops, Lindor is quickly vaulting up the list of the best at his position, and only in his second year, too. Clearly, he's one of the league's brightest young stars and should continue to perform like it while residing in the middle of Cleveland's batting order. If you were smart enough to invest in his services this year, keep enjoying the ride.

Indians | Three-hit day for Francisco Lindor

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:15:05 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor posted his second three-hit game in less than a week on Sunday, April 24, going 3-for-4 and scoring twice in a win over the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: The 22-year-old sophomore is off to a bit of a slow start in the power categories (one home run, five RBI), but he has been stellar offensively for the most part. Lindor has a plum spot as the third hitter in the Indians' order and is an obvious must-start, assuming his .323 average at an otherwise weak fantasy position wasn't a good enough reason.

Indians | Francisco Lindor continues to produce

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 15:45:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor is hitting .360/.404/.561 in his last 275 plate appearances and has 16 doubles, four triples, eight home runs and 12 stolen bases in his last 62 games during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor has not looked overmatched at all in the majors after he was rushed to the big leagues last year. He was known more for his defensive prowess in the minors, though, so don't automatically expect him to improve on his numbers from 2015 (12 home runs, .313 average).

Indians | Francisco Lindor leads off, Kipnis third

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 11:35:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor bumped up to the leadoff spot Wednesday, April 6, with 2B Jason Kipnis sliding to the three-hole against a right-hander. Kipnis hit second, with Lindor in the three-hole, against a lefty to open the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis receives the obvious bump in the third spot, and he's a daily consideration in DFS. Lindor's value adjusts from a run-producing spot to a spark plug, and he's a daily consideration at his position as well.
