Cardinals | Matt Adams, Kolten Wong sitting

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:26:21 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. 1B Brandon Moss is at first base and is hitting cleanup, while 2B Jedd Gyorko is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Moss could be a sneaky target in daily games as a sleeper against Greinke. Moss has a home run in seven at-bats against Greinke in his career. Gyorko had a big game against his old team Sunday and could be stealing more playing time away from the struggling Wong, mainly against left-handers. Despite a strong game yesterday, Gyorko is a risky daily pick against Greinke, who he has just five hits off of in 17 plate appearances.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting several starters

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 13:10:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday, 1B Matt Adams and 2B Kolten Wong are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Sunday, April 24. OF Brandon Moss will start at first base and is batting third in the lineup. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker will start in left field and is batting sixth, while 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moss and Hazelbaker have struggled at the plate recently but could still be decent options in daily fantasy leagues because of his success earlier in the month. Gyorko is hitting .333 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and could also be an attractive starting option.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Ruben Tejada in lineup

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:58:44 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and SS Ruben Tejada are in the starting lineup facing San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Friday, April 22. Adams is hitting cleanup and Tejada is hitting eighth. OF Jeremy Hazelbaker and SS Aledmys Diaz are the odd-men out.

Fantasy Tip: After hot starts, Hazelbaker and Diaz could see spotty playing time moving forward unless an injury opens up more time. Tejada is more of a defensive option and should only be owned in deep NL-only leagues. Adams has five hits (one homer and two doubles) in his last six games and figures to platoon at first with Matt Holliday and Brandon Moss. Against Cashner this evening, Adams is certainly worth investing in in daily leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Adams feeling normal

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 16:07:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams went 2-for-4 against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, April 19, and he said his swing is feeling normal again. Adams has started only once in the previous seven games while involved in a time share at first base with 1B Brandon Moss and OF Matt Holliday.

Fantasy Tip: Adams has big-time power, but his fantasy upside is limited while sharing time with Moss and Holliday at first base. He's likely limited to NL-only and daily formats for now when he's in the lineup facing a nice right-handed matchup.

Cardinals | Matt Adams draws another start

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 08:12:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is hitting cleanup Wednesday, April 20, for the second straight day. OF/1B Brandon Moss and OF Jeremy Hazelbaker are out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: "Big City" has four hits in his last 10 at-bats, including a homer, and he's a decent start against Kyle Hendricks at the right price.

Cardinals | Three Cards regulars sitting

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 12:11:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Brandon Moss, OF Stephen Piscotty and SS Aledmys Diaz are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. 1B Matt Adams is at first base and hitting cleanup, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker draws another start in right field and is in the two-hole, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Adams draws and can become an under-the-radar sleeper against a right-hander Tuesday in daily contests. He had all five of his long balls against righties last year. Hazelbaker has cooled off a bit but still has value in all fantasy formats as long as he's playing. Tejada is a low-end shortstop option who will steal playing time away from Diaz after coming off the DL yesterday.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting five players

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:56:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Jeremy Hazelbaker, OF Matt Holliday, C Yadier Molina, 2B Kolten Wong and SS Aledmys Diaz are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot Sunday, April 17. 1B Brandon Moss is starting in left field and is batting second. 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and is batting fifth. 2B Jedd Gyorko is starting at second base and is batting sixth. SS Greg Garcia is starting at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Eric Fryer starting at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fryer and Garcia have played well early this season but probably should not be options in most leagues. Moss, Adams and Gyorko could be used in daily fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Adams, Brandon Moss go deep

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 06:03:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams and 1B Brandon Moss each hit a pinch hit home run against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, April 15. Adams finished with two RBI, while Moss had three RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Both Adams and Moss have seen more time on the bench with Matt Holliday starting at first base, but they will see time in the starting lineup. They should be used in NL-only leagues but are not must-start options in deeper mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Adams returns to lineup

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 08:38:02 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is back in the starting lineup versus Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Sunday, April 10, batting fifth. 1B/OF Brandon Moss, who played first base Saturday, April 9, will start in left field and bat cleanup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Adams is just 1-for-10 on the season but is a lifetime .295 hitter versus right-handed pitching, so this appears to be a somewhat favorable matchup for him.

Cardinals | Matt Adams gets the nod Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 13:32:24 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is starting at first base and hitting cleanup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Friday, April 8. 1B Brandon Moss will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Adams' first start of the season at first base. Right now he's in more of a backup role at first behind Moss, so he only has NL-only value for his power. Against Wisler tonight, take a look at Adams as an under-the-radar sleeper for some power in daily formats.
