Cubs | Kris Bryant owns righties at Wrigley

Thu, 05 May 2016 14:33:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant has a career .326/.426/.648 slash line against right-handed pitchers at Wrigley Field. He faces Washington Nationals right-handed SP Joe Ross Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: You're not taking Bryant out of your lineup in seasonal leagues, but daily players will want to consider spending up for the budding superstar at home when the Cubs face a right-handed hurler. Bryant is also currently riding a 10-game hitting streak with 11 runs, two bombs, 10 RBI and a 1.187 OPS. He is a ripe daily option Thursday.

Cubs | Jason Heyward remains out

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:47:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jason Heyward (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. 3B Kris Bryant moves to right field, while 3B Tommy La Stella is at the hot corner and is batting second against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward's struggles and wrist injury are perplexing to his fantasy owners, and don't rule out the Cubs placing him on the DL to rest. Any more time that Heyward misses is beneficial to La Stella and Javier Baez, with Baez having the more fantasy upside because of his intriguing power-speed combination. La Stella has been productive, too (.297/.381/.514) and is a midrange DFS play against Ross.

Cubs | Jason Heyward still out

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:45:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jason Heyward (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. 3B Kris Bryant moves to right field. 2B/OF Javier Baez is starting at third base and hitting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese. Also, OF Jorge Soler is in the two-hole Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward's wrist has apparently been bothering him for some time, which may have led to his slow start (.211/.317/.256 with no home runs). Hopefully for his owners a little time off will help him turn things around. Baez has done nothing but hit when given the chance this year (11-for-31), so he's a great daily pick today. Soler is off to a slow start but could be a contrarian pick that pans out in DFS today hitting at the top of the order.

Cubs | Jorge Soler, David Ross sitting

Sun, 01 May 2016 10:52:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler and C David Ross are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, May 1. 3B Kris Bryant will start in left field, while 2B Tommy La Stella will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup. C Tim Federowicz will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella has gone 5-for-8 with four doubles, one home run and two RBI over the last seven days. He should be an attractive candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Federowicz is making his first start of the season and can be avoided by all owners.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant missed the last game because of an ankle injury but appears to be fine. He is hitting .289 with four home runs and 15 RBI this season and is a must-start option in all leagues.

Cubs | Kris Bryant unlikely for Saturday

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:12:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kris Bryant (ankle) is feeling better Friday, April 29, but he is still unlikely to play against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, April 30, according to manager Joe Maddon.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant made an appearance in the on-deck circle as a potential pinch hitter during the game Friday, so he clearly isn't too hampered by the ankle injury. Still, the Cubs and fantasy owners want Bryant healthy and not rushed back. Reiterating previous tips, Javier Baez and Tommy La Stella will handle the hot corner with Bryant out. Stay tuned for updates.

Cubs | Kris Bryant expected to avoid DL

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:52:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (ankle) is expected to avoid the disabled list after suffering a mild ankle sprain Thursday, April 28. Bryant is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29, and he could be out for a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is a top-tier fantasy third baseman. It looks like he avoided serious injury, but be prepared to be without him for at least several days. Javier Baez should've already been owned in the majority of leagues for his power-speed combo and positional eligibility, and Tommy La Stella could fill in occasionally at the hot corner in the meantime.

Cubs | Javier Baez in the lineup

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:34:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs INF Javier Baez is hitting sixth Friday, April 29, in place of 3B Kris Bryant (ankle). 2B Ben Zobrist is hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Baez draws the start over streaking Tommy La Stella. Baez is hitting .308 with a homer in 26 at-bats this year and isn't a bad flyer against Aaron Blair in his second career start. Zobrist is hitting .308 with three RBI the last seven days. He's a decent midrange start today.

Cubs | Kris Bryant out Friday

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:04:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (ankle) will sit out Friday, April 29, but the Cubs aren't worried about his mild ankle sprain.

Fantasy Tip: Tommy La Stella is 5-for-8 (.625) with a homer the last seven days. He doesn't do a lot of damage, but he figures to see more at-bats in the short term. He could be a low-end daily flyer.
