Padres | Matt Kemp hits fourth round tripper

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 05:32:17 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during the Padres' 5-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran is off to a nice start with five runs, four home runs, 11 RBI and a .273/.289/.545 slash line. The weak supporting cast around him might limit his upside to a degree, but just repeating similar numbers from his 2015 showing (80-23-100-12-.265) will provide nice value. Continue to view Kemp as a solid mid-tier outfielder.

Padres | Matt Kemp has four-hit game Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 18:20:02 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp went 4-for-6 with a home run and four RBI in a victory over the Colorado Rockies Friday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp is batting .375 through his first 16 at-bats of the season and makes a viable option in daily fantasy lineups, especially since he will be playing this weekend at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He should be viewed as a solid OF2 in seasonal leagues despite the lack of protection he has in San Diego's lineup.

Orioles | Baltimore eyed James Shields, Matt Kemp

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 15:38:15 -0800

San Diego Padres SP James Shields and OF Matt Kemp were the subject of trade talks between the Padres and Baltimore Orioles, but the two teams were not able to reach an agreement on either player.

Fantasy Tip: Shields and Kemp likely will start the season with the Padres but could be traded during the season. Kemp posted solid numbers and has a good chance to play well again this season if he stays healthy. Shields also posted decent numbers with a 13.7 record and 3.91 ERA. Both players could be middle-round options in deeper leagues.

Padres | Multiple teams interested in Matt Kemp

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 17:48:42 -0800

Several teams have reportedly expressed interest in San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp, although no deal appears imminent.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp quietly had his first 100-RBI season since 2011 despite having little protection surrounding him in the San Diego lineup. Due to ever-present injury concerns, you may be able to draft him as your third outfielder next season, although he will produce like a No. 2 outfielder if he's healthy.

Padres | Matt Kemp recovery timeline

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 16:57:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (finger) will require four to six weeks for the strained tendon in his right middle finger to heal properly. He will not require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be dropped in all fantasy formats. He'll enter the 2016 season on the heels of his first 100 RBI season since 2011, and more importantly, he played over 150 games for the second consecutive year. Kemp projects to provide No. 2 OF fantasy production, but you'll likely be able to draft his as your No. 3. Check back for updates.

Padres | Matt Kemp finished for the season

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:52:04 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp (finger) will miss the remainder of the season with a strained tendon in his right middle finger, manager Pat Murphy announced Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be replaced in all seasonal leagues, and is only worth a roster spot in deeper dynasty/keeper formats. Melvin Upton Jr. ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) projects to see an uptick in playing time over the final games, but he is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats, including at FantasyScore.

Padres | Matt Kemp reaches 100 RBIs before injury

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 00:41:14 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp reached 100 RBIs for the first time since 2011, when he drove in 126 runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has recovered some footing after a couple down seasons with the Dodgers. A change of scenery has done Kemp a world of good, and he will head into the offseason as a solid outfield candidate for your fantasy team. For now, this injury should not be serious.
