Cubs | Dexter Fowler not playing

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 13:06:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon Sunday, June 19. OF Jason Heyward will start in center field, while 3B Kris Bryant will start in right field. SS Javier Baez will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Baez has been on a bit of a cold streak with a .182 batting average over the last seven days. He does have three home runs and 12 RBI so far this month and should still be an attractive option in fantasy leagues despite his recent struggles. Heyward and Bryant should be starters in all leagues.

Cubs | Kris Bryant back in the lineup

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:39:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (illness) returned to the lineup Saturday, June 18. C Miguel Montero is out with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is a daily consideration despite him sitting out yesterday with the stomach flu. Ross' bat isn't potent enough to use against Jonathon Niese.

Cubs | Kris Bryant out with illness

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 10:28:41 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (illness) is out Friday, June 17, due to the stomach flu. He could be able to pinch it.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on the severity, it could knock him out a few days, cause dehydration, cause weight/strength loss, etc. So keep an eye on his status over the weekend. Albert Almora and Javier Baez figure to see more time if he's out a few days and are low-end daily options.

Cubs | Kris Bryant, Jason Heyward out Friday

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 08:08:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant and OF Jason Heyward are out of the lineup Friday, June 17, with OF Matt Szczur hitting second and OF Albert Almora hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Almora is hitting .353 in his first 17 at-bats of his career. Szczur is hitting .327 in 55 at-bats this year and has upside hitting ahead of Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo. They're both low-end options against Francisco Liriano.

Cubs | Kris Bryant not a fan of derby

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 08:55:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant said the Home Run Derby was "exhausting" and "mentally draining," and he isn't sure if he would participate in it again if he were asked. Bryant is currently tied for sixth in the National League with 15 home runs. Bryant took part in the derby last season and lost in the first round.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant should be voted into the All-Star Game, as he's sporting a .273/.360/.514 slash line with 15 home runs and 45 RBI on the year. He's a premiere young power third baseman and should be a must-start each and every day in fantasy leagues.

Cubs | Javier Baez at 3B Tuesday

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:32:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B/OF Javier Baez is starting at third base and is hitting sixth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, June 14. 3B Kris Bryant shifts to left field.

Fantasy Tip: Baez's power-speed combination plays in most leagues despite his limited playing time. He's a fine addition to all daily lineups today, as well, against the lefty.

Cubs | Kris Bryant goes deep

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 14:51:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant went 2-for-5 with one home run and two RBI against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant continues to play very well and has at least one hit in seven of his last eight games with three home runs and six RBI during that span. Bryant has become one of the better players in fantasy and should be a starter in all leagues.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 11:31:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and is hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Tuesday, June 7. 3B Kris Bryant is shifting to left field with OF Jorge Soler (hamstring) sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella could see a lot more playing time in the near future if Soler's hamstring injury is serious enough to land him on the DL. La Stella has hit in his opportunities, too, batting .280 with two homers and seven RBI in 75 at-bats. He could become an option off the waiver wire in deep mixed leagues if he starts every day in this potent lineup.

Cubs | Trio post three-hit games vs. Phils

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 20:48:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant, OF Dexter Fowler and 1B Anthony Rizzo each posted three hits in the win against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, June 6. Fowler posted two runs scored, while Bryant had two runs scored and an RBI and Rizzo drove in a pair.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant and Fowler have had strong seasons across the board, while Rizzo's average could use a little work at .260. However, a few more games like this and he'll be just fine. Fantasy owners cannot complain about either of the three.
