Reds | Brandon Phillips struggling lately

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 11:39:52 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is in a 7-for-40 stretch with five strikeouts in his last nine games. However, he's hitting .333 in 18 career at-bats against the starter Tuesday, June 28, Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: With Phillips struggling at the plate of late, you should probably look to avoid him in daily games. In standard leagues, though, get him back into your lineups after a night off to clear his head Monday.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out Monday

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 10:12:14 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 27. 2B Jose Peraza is starting at the keystone and is hitting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta. Also, OF Billy Hamilton moves up into the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza has very little power but has stolen five bases in 44 plate appearances this year, so he can be useful in deeper leagues for his speed. However, facing Arrieta should make you want to avoid him in daily contests. Hamilton has more DFS allure atop the batting order, but he, too, is a weaker option against one of the stronger pitchers in baseball today.

Reds | Jose Peraza at 2B Friday

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:02:20 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Jose Peraza is starting at second base and is hitting ninth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Friday, June 17. 2B Brandon Phillips is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza is a top prospect that has plenty of speed to burn. For that reason alone he can be useful in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, but how much he'll play remains to be seen. He should be in the lineup regularly this weekend with the Reds able to use an extra bat. His DFS utility is limited hitting ninth tonight, but he's 3-for-3 in stolen base attempts the past two games.

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 23:25:30 -0700

Fantasy Tip: BP is hitting .381 in June and is a midrange option at the position in fantasy.

Reds | Brandon Phillips returns to action

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 15:38:13 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (foot) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Thursday, June 2. That'll push OF Billy Hamilton to seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to return Phillips to your lineups immediately so you don't miss out on a start at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He could be an under-the-radar pick in DFS because of his recent ailment. Hamilton loses some daily luster with a move back down the order. His only real fantasy asset is his speed, and he still struggles to find ways on base.

Reds | Still no Brandon Phillips

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:04:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (foot) is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, June 1. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at second base and is batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood. Also, OF Billy Hamilton is in the two-hole again.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips has a bruised foot, so he could be back any day now. Hamilton gains some daily value hitting atop the order, as he'll have more chances to utilize his only strength, his speed. He's still more of a low-end option, however. De Jesus is hitting only .210 with a homer and seven RBI and has just five home runs in his four-year career. Avoid him Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on the severity of Phillips' injury and how much time he could miss. Remove him from your daily lineups tonight.

Reds | Billy Hamilton, Jose Peraza in lineup

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:05:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton returns to the starting lineup and is hitting second against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Tuesday, May 17. 2B Jose Peraza draws a start at second base and is batting eighth. 2B Brandon Phillips is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton missed a handful of games while on the bereavement list. Get him back into seasonal lineups for his speed. The second spot in the lineup boosts his value for steals. Peraza also has appeal for his speed and should've been added in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Unfortunately he's a low-end option in DFS sitting that low in the order in a tough matchup tonight.

Reds | Joey Votto sitting out

Wed, 11 May 2016 11:25:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with 2B Brandon Phillips moving up to the three-hole. 1B Jordan Pacheco is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: BP has a .333-5-9 line the last week. Digest that, and plug him in against Juan Nicasio today. Pacheco is hitting .241 without an RBI and isn't worth much consideration.

Reds | Brandon Phillips launches two home runs

Sun, 08 May 2016 06:08:06 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs during the Reds' 13-7 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips is off to a solid start with 16 runs, six home runs, 16 RBI, three stolen bases and a .297/.324/.554 slash line, and health permitting, the veteran stands to return another solid fantasy season. He is a viable starting option at the keystone in the majority of seasonal leagues.
