Dodgers | Monday Dodgers lineup light

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:04:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Monday, June 27. OF Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting third, 1B Scott Van Slyke is hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis hit seventh and SS Chris Taylor hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has struggled this month, but he has upside in the three-hole against Francisco Liriano. Hernandez and Van Slyke are worth low-end consideration against the lefty. Ellis and Taylor don't move the needle much.

Dodgers | Four Dodgers take a seat

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:52:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and 2B Howie Kendrick are out of the lineup Saturday, June 25. 2B Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting cleanup, OF Scott Van Slyke hits seventh and C A.J. Ellis is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting just .195, but most of his power comes against lefties. He and Van Slyke are low-end flyers against lefty Jeff Locke. Thompson has cooled way off, but he has upside hitting cleanup. Ellis isn't worth a DFS flyer today.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson leading off

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:10:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is leading off Saturday, June 18, with 2B Chase Utley out of the lineup. 2B Howie Kendrick is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson has three homers in the last week, but he's hitting just .216. He's an all-or-nothing play against Chase Anderson. Kendrick is hitting .412 the last week, and he's a low-end option in DFS.

Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars sitting out

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:30:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, June 15. 2B Howie Kendrick is at second base and is hitting sixth, OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting seventh and C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick and Van Slyke don't move the fantasy needle all that much but could be successful value plays in DFS if you're looking to save a little salary cap space against the lefty. Ellis is a light-hitting catcher that should be ignored.

Dodgers | Chase Utley erupts for four RBI

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 22:35:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley finished 2-for-5, including a two-run homer and two-run double, against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Utley has been extremely up-and-down for his owners since May 24, combining for three home runs and 13 RBI in three games while totaling zero homers and one RBI in the other 15 contests. Tuesday's effort marks the second time in three games he's had multiple hits, so perhaps he's ready to go on another run after watching his average did as low as .259 after entering the month batting .283. Despite the inconsistency, Utley makes for a solid option in leagues that utilize a middle infield spot.

Dodgers | Chase Utley slumping

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 09:13:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is hitting .095 (2-for-21) this month.

Fantasy Tip: Utley had been off to a really nice start with the Dodgers as their primary second baseman. But at 37 years old, that hot start was destined to come back to earth, and so far in June that's what has happened. Utley is still hitting .263 with four home runs and 20 RBI, but his average is no guarantee to boost fantasy teams after he hit just .202 in 34 games with L.A. last season.

Dodgers | Four Dodgers regulars sitting out

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:27:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, SS Corey Seager, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Wednesday, June 8. C Austin Barnes is starting at second base and is hitting eighth, OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop and is batting leadoff, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and hitting cleanup and C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers typically sit a handful of their lefty hitters against southpaws. After Thompson's walkoff blast last night, he now has 10 homers and 22 RBI on the year and has carved out an everyday role. He's a great player to have in daily lineups this evening. Hernandez's daily value soars while hitting leadoff, too, and he's a fine value play. Barnes and Ellis are light-hitting catchers that are low-end DFS clicks.

Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars sitting

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:30:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at second base and is hitting fifth, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and is batting third and C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and hitting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood. Also, 3B Justin Turner is in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has solidified everyday playing time with a .279 average and nine home runs on the year. He has become a viable option in most fantasy formats now. Kendrick is in a nice run-producing spot in the lineup but remains more of a low-end daily pick, as does Ellis. Turner has struggled to produce his numbers from a season ago and loses valuable RBI chances while hitting leadoff, making him a lackluster DFS selection tonight.

Dodgers | Chase Utley fans four times

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 23:08:15 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley went 0-for-4 and struck out swinging in all four at-bats against the Atlanta Braves on Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ever since his two-homer game against the Mets, Utley is 3-for-22 (.136) with seven strikeouts and zero RBI -- his average has dropped 20 points in that time. If you jumped on the Utley express after the Noah Syndergaard incident this is a reminder that he's 37 years old, and if you toss out those two games against the Mets he has a .270-2-10 line for the season. Those in NL-only leagues can keep him around. For everyone else there should be better options available.

Dodgers | Chase Utley, Yasmani Grandal sitting

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 09:07:57 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Thursday, June 2. OF Enrique Hernandez will start at second base and is batting first, while C A.J. Ellis will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez has been used mostly as a pinch hitter lately and has only three hits in his last nine games. Owners in most daily fantasy leagues should be able to find better players to use. Ellis has only two hits in his last 14 at-bats and is not a strong fantasy option.
