Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick went 0-for-3 against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 26, to end his streak of consecutive games with a hit at 16.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has been a beast this month (.363-3-10 in 80 ABs) and should keep being utilized until it's clear his bat has truly cooled down.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is 20-for-44 (.455) with seven runs scored, one home run and six RBIs over the past 11 games. He has the longest active streak in the majors, re-emerging as a must-start in NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats.

Dodgers | Four-hit game for Howie Kendrick

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 22:10:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B-OF Howie Kendrick had three singles and a double in five at-bats Saturday, July 16, against the Arizona Diamondbacks to push his average to .271. It was Kendrick's third straight game with at least three hits. He has hit safely in nine consecutive games.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick started off rather slowly this season, but he is making up for lost time in July. Kendrick is hitting .426 (20-for-47) with seven doubles, a home run and seven RBIs in 12 July games to raise his average from .237 to .271. He has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option in most NL-only leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson draws a start Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 12:23:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson is back in the lineup for the first time in three games Sunday, July 10, against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich. Thompson will bat sixth and start in center field, while OF Scott Van Slyke will bump 2B/OF Howie Kendrick from left field to second base and hit eighth. Kendrick will replace 2B Chase Utley, who will get the day off, atop the order.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson appears to be in a platoon with Andrew Toles at the moment as a result of his long slump and may struggle for playing time once Joc Pederson returns from injury. Van Slyke has 15 strikeouts and only one homer in 55 at-bats the season and hasn't exactly done much with the little playing time he has received. Kendrick is hitting .303 in July and .302 for the season against left-handers, making him the lone decent option from this group to use in fantasy today.

Dodgers | Chase Utley, Yasmani Grandal out

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:06:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Thursday, July 7. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at the keystone and hitting leadoff, while C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Utley and Grandal get the day off in the tough lefty-lefty matchup. Kendrick contributes modestly across the board, but even in the leadoff spot he's a low-end daily commodity unlikely to fill out the stat sheet. Ellis is at the Mendoza Line (.200) with a homer and 11 RBI and can be avoided everywhere.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sit out

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:35:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with 2B Howie Kendrick leading off and C A.J. Ellis hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has underwhelmed this year, but he has upside in the leadoff spot against Chad Bettis. Ellis doesn't deserve DFS consideration.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson remains absent Friday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:33:41 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, July 1. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting in left field again and is hitting fifth, with OF Trayce Thompson starting in center field against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson has been one of the more productive hitters for the Dodgers this year. He could be in line for a DL stint, so stay tuned on his progress. Kendrick has seen regular playing time recently, but Thompson has the higher ceiling with more power despite fading a bit of late.

Dodgers | Four Dodgers take a seat

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:52:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and 2B Howie Kendrick are out of the lineup Saturday, June 25. 2B Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting cleanup, OF Scott Van Slyke hits seventh and C A.J. Ellis is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting just .195, but most of his power comes against lefties. He and Van Slyke are low-end flyers against lefty Jeff Locke. Thompson has cooled way off, but he has upside hitting cleanup. Ellis isn't worth a DFS flyer today.
