Marlins | Night off for J.T. Realmuto

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:24:47 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. C Jeff Mathis is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto is having a strong fantasy season with 36 runs, five home runs, 26 RBI, 10 stolen bases and a .315/.349/.416 slash line. He's a worthy starting catcher in all fantasy formats going forward. Mathis owns a career .558 OPS and is nothing more than a desperation fantasy option.

Marlins | Three sitting out for Miami

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:03:12 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto, OF Marcell Ozuna and 1B Chris Johnson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, July 17. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field and is batting first. INF Don Kelly will start at first base and is batting sixth. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ichiro has not received many starts over the last few weeks but does have a terrific .337 batting average this season. He should have some value in daily fantasy leagues. Kelly and Mathis can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich, J.T. Realmuto out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:48:07 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich and C J.T. Realmuto are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. 2B Miguel Rojas is at second base and is batting seventh, while C Jeff Mathis is behind the plate and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Steven Matz. Also, SS Adeiny Hechavarria moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas and Mathis are both very light hitters and are desperation picks as deep sleepers in DFS. Hechavarria is hot lately with 10 hits in his last 26 at-bats (.385) with three RBI since June 28. He sees a boost in his daily value while hitting leadoff, but he's unlikely to fill the stat sheet as a midrange shortstop option.

Marlins | Two Fish sit out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 07:29:33 -0700

Miami Marlins C J.T. Realmuto and 1B Justin Bour are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 29, with 1B Chris Johnson hitting sixth and C Jeff Mathis hitting ninth. OF Ichiro Suzuki is in at DH and leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is hitting just .228 against lefties this season in what has been an ineffective year thus far. He has hit lefties well in the past, but he may be past it to use against lefty Daniel Norris. Suzuki is hitting .308 in 26 at-bats against lefties, and he's a really low-end option today. Mathis isn't worth consideration.

Marlins | Jeff Mathis catching Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:13:36 -0700

Miami Marlins C Jeff Mathis is batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, June 26. C J.T. Realmuto is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Mathis is not a great fantasy option regardless of the opposing pitcher, as his .179 average this season and .194 career mark will attest.

Marlins | Two Fish out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 07:12:56 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado and C J.T. Realmuto are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 22, with SS Adeiny Hechavarria hitting second and C Jeff Mathis hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria is hitting .242 this month in what has been a "meh" season for him. He has a good matchup against John Gant, and he's a low-end option today, though. Mathis doesn't have a potent enough bat for much consideration in DFS.

Marlins | Three MIA regulars sitting out Sunday

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 07:43:55 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, C J.T. Realmuto and SS Adeiny Hechavarria are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Sunday, June 19. INF Chris Johnson will play first base and bat sixth, C Jeff Mathis will start behind the plate and bat seventh and INF Miguel Rojas will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is batting .269 this month and is 3-for-10 over the past week but should only be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief in DFS. Mathis and Rojas have both struggled at the plate recently and are not worthy of lineup consideration in any fantasy format.

Marlins | Jeff Mathis hits grand slam

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:48:34 -0700

Miami Marlins C Jeff Mathis hit a grand slam in the first inning to help the team to a 5-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Mathis entered play with zero home runs and one RBI on the season, so him hitting a grand slam was akin to spotting a unicorn nibbling on four-leaf clovers. He still has no fantasy appeal, but feel free to thank him for the discounted pizza.

Marlins | Miami sitting three players

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:57:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, C J.T. Realmuto and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz Tuesday, June 14. 1B Chris Johnson will start at first base and is batting sixth. C Jeff Mathis will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while SS Miguel Rojas will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All three players have received limited playing time this season, but Rojas has posted decent numbers this season. He should be considered a deep sleeper in daily fantasy leagues, but owners can avoid Johnson and Mathis since there will be better players available.

Marlins | Three Miami regulars resting

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:36:14 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour, 2B Derek Dietrich and C J.T. Realmuto are all out of the starting lineup Friday, June 10. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth, SS Miguel Rojas is at second and batting seventh and C Jeff Mathis is catching and hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin.

Fantasy Tip: Bour and Dietrich are likely out against the lefty. Johnson carries the most daily value as a deep sleeper because of his success against lefties in the past, but his contact-oriented approach with limited power keeps his ceiling low. Rojas and Mathis are desperation DFS flyers if you're looking to save salary cap space at their respective positions.
