Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns after a day off

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:24:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is in the lineup Sunday, May 01, against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz and will bat leadoff. The Dodgers will get a host of other regulars a day off, however, as 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal, OF Carl Crawford and OF Joc Pederson are not starting. In their place, OF Enrique Hernandez will occupy left field and bat second, 2B/3B Howie Kendrick will play second base and hit fifth, OF Trayce Thompson will spell Pederson in center and bat sixth, and C A.J. Ellis will catch and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is mired in a 7-for-51 slump since the middle of April following a hot start and is probably needs to be benched in most leagues for now, although manager Dave Roberts is obviously showing a lot of faith in his struggling slugger by batting him leadoff today. Utley is getting a rest day and has cooled slightly after batting over .300 for most of April, but he should be inserted back in lineups Tuesday when the Dodgers hit the road to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick the odd-man out

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:59:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. 2B Chase Utley is starting at the keystone and hitting leadoff against San Diego Padres SP Cesar Vargas.

Fantasy Tip: Utley is off to a fine start, hitting .307 with five RBI in 75 at-bats. As long as he stays hot, Kendrick will likely lose playing time against right-handed pitchers, especially since he's only hitting .135/.151/.135. It's becoming harder to justify holding Kendrick in mixed affairs. Utley is a fine selection for daily rosters tonight against Vargas, who is making just his second major league start and first on the road.

Dodgers | Justin Turner with a day off

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:59:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at the hot corner and is hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is a daily pick tonight that you'll want to avoid. He's facing one of the more electric arms in the big leagues, and Kendrick comes into the game with a meager slash line of .143/.160/.143 with no homers or RBI in 49 at-bats.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick out of lineup

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:45:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26. 2B Chase Utley is starting at second base and is batting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: With Carl Crawford back from the DL, Kendrick could see even less playing time now as he splits time between left field and second base. That'll obviously hurt his value in mixed leagues, but he still has usefulness across most counting categories when he's in the lineup for the Blue.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out of the lineup

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:31:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner was not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Sunday, April 24. 2B Howie Kendrick will start at third base, while OF Trayce Thompson will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has recorded only one hit in his last seven games, so owners should be able to find better options to use for their starting lineups.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick hitting fifth

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:07:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is hitting fifth Saturday, April 23, against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is just 1-for-15 (.067) the last seven days. He has a good chance to break out in Coors Field today and is worth the midrange flyer.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sitting out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:35:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner and 2B Howie Kendrick are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Trayce Thompson is hitting fifth, and 3B Charlie Culberson is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is hitting .308 and is a good low-end flyer against Matt Wisler. Culberson doesn't possess the DFS clout for the start, though.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick in LF again

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 12:47:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is starting in left field again Tuesday, April 19, and he's hitting seventh in the batting order. 2B Chase Utley starts at second and is hitting leadoff against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: This is notable because Kendrick could accrue enough starts in left field while Carl Crawford is on the DL to become eligible in the outfield for fantasy owners. Kendrick contributes modestly across all categories and would become even more useful in all leagues. Both he and Utley are acceptable lower-priced options to plug into your daily lineups tonight against Perez.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick in left field

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 16:43:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick will play left field and bat seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday, April 17, with OF Enrique Hernandez receiving the night off.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has yet to record an extra-base hit since his injury-delayed debut, and you can leave him on the bench until his bat comes to life.

Dodgers | Several Dodgers starters resting

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 15:41:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner, OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and 2B Chase Utley are all out of the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Thursday, April 14. 2B Howie Kendrick moves to third base, C Austin Barnes is starting at second and hitting eighth, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and batting sixth, while OF Enrique Hernandez gets the start in left and is leading off.

Fantasy Tip: With a lot of moving parts in the Los Angeles lineup tonight, you should certainly consider using Ray in your lineup this evening. Barnes and Thompson are deep sleepers as lotto tickets in daily games. Hernandez, who has some thump in his stick, could be a sneaky deep sleeper while hitting leadoff.
