Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is in the lineup for the third straight game Wednesday, May 6, in place of 1B Michael Morse.
Fantasy Tip: Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is 7-for-14 on the season, but that's too small of a sample size to give confidence in playing him on FantasyScore. He's 1-for-5 in his past two starts. If the trend continues, it's bigger news for the struggling Morse, whose .193-2-8 line needs to improve.

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, May 5. 1B Justin Bour is starting at first base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg.
Fantasy Tip: Morse is struggling (.193-2-8) this year, which has led to more time for Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who hit his first home run of the season last night. Bour, however, isn't the best option for FantasyScore owners tonight while facing Strasburg.

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Monday, May 4. 1B Justin Bour is batting fifth and playing first base Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) in FantasyScore contests Monday. He is really struggling and currently in a 8-for-54 funk with 19 strikeouts. Bour ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has reached base in seven of 10 plate appearances, and could be a sneaky daily play hitting in the middle of a respectable Miami lineup. Just remember it is a small sample size, and facing Jordan Zimmermann shouldn't be viewed as a plus-matchup.

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is back in the lineup Sunday, May 3, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Morse will hit fifth in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has two home runs on the season but is hitting for just a .202 average. Morse has upside in GPP tournaments, but until his .263 BABIP starts rebounding, FantasyScore owners don't need to worry about him too much.

Miami Marlins 1B Michael Morse is not in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, May 2. INF Jeff Baker will start at first base and bat fifth.
Fantasy Tip: The struggling Morse ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is being given the day off by manager Mike Redmond. He is 6-for-39 in his last 10 games and is only batting .202 through 22 games this season. FantasyScore owners should be able to find better options than Baker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap).
