Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is batting fourth in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Wednesday, April 15.
Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has played pretty well early in the season and hit his first home run of the season in his last game. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Francoeur as an option if they are looking to save some money.

Philadelphia Phillies OFs Darin Ruf and Jeff Francoeur are both in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox and SP Rick Porcello Wednesday, April 8. Ruf is starting in left field and hitting fifth, while Francoeur is in right field and hitting seventh. SS Odubel Herrera and Grady Sizemore will start on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Francoeur ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will see occasional playing time in 2015 based on matchups for the Phils. Neither is a strong daily play Wednesday night against Porcello, though, unless you're looking to go cheap for an outfield spot to save money for the rest of your lineup.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') will start the season on the disabled list with an Achilles' injury that has kept him out the last two weeks. Brown will be the designated hitter in a minor league game Tuesday, March 31, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., and the Phillies are expecting Brown to miss more than just the opening week of the season. OFs Grady Sizemore, Jeff Francoeur, Jordan Danks and Darin Ruf are candidates to start in right field in place of Brown.
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a post-hype prospect that just hasn't put it together yet in Philly. He hit only .235 with 10 home runs and 63 RBI in 2014, meaning he probably wasn't on many fantasy owners' radars. Now that he's injury, he's not a candidate to be drafted in deep mixed leagues. Sizemore seems like the best bet to see the most playing time in Brown's absence, but Philadelphia could easily go with a platoon in right field, too.

The San Diego Padres officially recalled OF Rymer Liriano from Triple-A El Paso Monday, Aug. 11, and designated OF Jeff Francoeur for assignment in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Liriano is one of the club's top position player prospects. He should be scooped up in all NL-only leagues for the time being.

The San Diego Padres have placed OF Carlos Quentin (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of left knee soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Jeff Francoeur could get most of the playing time in the outfield while Quentin is out of the lineup. He should be an option in NL-only leagues but probably does not have much value in deep mixed leagues. Chris Denorfia could also receive more playing time but there have been rumors that he likely will be traded.

San Diego Padres OF Jeff Francoeur is in the starting lineup and hitting fifth Friday, July 25, against the Atlanta Braves.
Fantasy Tip: Francoeur could hit his way into semi-regular at-bats and should be owned in NL-only formats. His numbers at Triple-A El Paso were impressive.

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games by MLB because of amphetamine use.
Fantasy Tip: Will Venable, Jeff Francoeur and Chris Denorfia could receive more playing time with Maybin suspended, but there have been reports that Denorfia could be moved by the trade deadline. Owners in deep leagues could consider adding Venable to their team, while Francoeur and Denforia should only be considered in NL-only leagues for now.
