Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez hit a grand slam Sunday, July 24, in a 9-6 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting .284-9-51, including six hits in his last four games. It looks like any signs of a slow start might be fading, and Gonzalez will need to have a solid second half to help the Dodgers do well. Keep him activated.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is hitting third Thursday, July 21.
Fantasy Tip: A-Gone is hitting .327 this month with 10 RBI. He is 4-for-9 (.444) off of Stephen Strasburg in his career. He's worth a midrange play in DFS, but the power has not been there this season with seven homers.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray on Sunday, July 17. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will replace him in the field and bat cleanup. 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Andrew Toles are also not starting, and will be replaced by INF Chris Taylor (hitting sixth), C A.J. Ellis (seventh) and newly promoted rookie SS/OF Zach Walters (eighth), respectively.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez remains a very good hitter (.287), but he has only homered twice and driven in 17 runs since the end of May, so he can be benched in most fantasy leagues. The same can be said for Utley, while Grandal emerged as a back-end starting catcher option with a strong first-half finish. None of the today's four replacements need to be considered outside of deep mixed or NL-only formats.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez homered for the first time in 25 games, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres Sunday, July 10.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has remained a must-start fantasy option despite the power outage. He has five multi-hit efforts in his last six games, and he is hitting .455 over his last 12 games.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez has a .344/.432/.750 slash line with four home runs in his career against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner, who he faces Friday, July 8.
Fantasy Tip: At 34 years of age, A-Gon is beginning to show signs of fading, mainly in the power department (six home runs). Otherwise, he's been respectable with a .281/.361/.391 slash line as a low-end fantasy first baseman. Look to get him in all starting lineups this evening because of his excellent history against Cashner.
