Padres | Alex Dickerson heating up

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:52:58 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson logged his second straight three-hit game Monday, July 25, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was 3-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season, which produced his two RBI and lone run scored for the contest. He also laced a double.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson doesn't really get consistent playing time at the moment, but that may change with his recent hit barrage. Plus, there's also a good chance San Diego ships out one or two of their offensive players, which could pave the way for Dickerson to get regular at-bats. He'll be on the radar if he can get into the lineup more consistently.

Padres | Melvin Upton out of lineup again

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:30:19 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and is hitting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez. Also, 1B Brett Wallace is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: That's two straight days out for Upton, so check back to see if he's 100% physically. Dickerson and Wallace both have some pop in their lumber but are far too inconsistent to be anything more than low-end deep sleeper picks for daily owners.

Padres | Melvin Upton not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:47:03 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito Sunday, July 24. OF Alex Dickerson will play left field and bat fifth. In addition, C Derek Norris is back in the lineup, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has been the subject of numerous trade rumors recently, although it does not appear as though a deal is imminent. Dickerson is batting .227 with two home runs and 10 RBI through 66 at-bats but daily fantasy owners should be able to find better options this afternoon.

Padres | Melvin Upton, Ryan Schimpf sitting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:21:00 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. and 2B Ryan Schimpf are not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 20. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and batting sixth, while INF Adam Rosales is at the keystone and is hitting seventh against Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has some moderate pop but doesn't play enough to be anything more than a bench piece in NL-only leagues. He's a bad play against the southpaw in DFS, too. Rosales is even less attractive with his .197/.282/.409 slash line on the year.

Padres | Matt Kemp out for Game 1

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:04:33 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 20. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and hitting sixth, while 2B Ryan Schimpf moves up to the two-hole against Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson and Schimpf are both left-handed sticks with some mild pop but profile more as deep sleepers in daily formats this afternoon. Schimpf's lineup placement is more attractive, although he's hitting only .217 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 25 games. Martinez has been pitching very well of late, too.

Padres | Alex Dickerson will not start

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:45:52 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 15. C Christian Bethancourt will start in left field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has not received a lot of playing time recently but does have at least one hit in three of the last four games. He should have some value in two-catcher leagues but probably will not be used in most mixed leagues.

Padres | Travis Jankowski not starting

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 12:20:08 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda Sunday, July 10. OF Melvin Upton Jr. will start in center field, while OF Alex Dickerson will start in left field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson is hitting .350 with one home run and five RBI over the last seven days and should be a decent starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Padres | Alex Dickerson in LF Thursday

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:04:34 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and is hitting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu Thursday, July 7. OF Travis Jankowski will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has limited exposure to major league pitching and is hitting just .233 (7-for-30) with the Friars with two home runs and seven RBI. He's one to avoid as a deep sleeper in DFS against a left-handed starter, too.

Padres | Travis Jankowski sitting vs. Arizona

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 14:58:33 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 4. OF Alex Dickerson draws into the lineup in left field and is batting fifth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley Monday.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Jankowski is a fringe fantasy asset in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and if he isn't receiving consistent playing time his fantasy value is even lower. Dickerson hit a two-run home run Sunday, July 3, and he could be a contrarian flier for daily contests Monday.
