Royals | No Alex Gordon against Cleveland

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:40:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Brett Eibner is starting in left field and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has struggled when healthy this season and owns a disastrous .635 OPS with just 15 RBI through 62 games. He's not producing starter-caliber numbers in the majority of mixed leagues. Eibner has fared well when given a chance, so he's a viable depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. You'll likely want to look elsewhere in daily contests Wednesday, though.

Royals | Alex Gordon hitting fifth Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:53:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is hitting fifth in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against the Detroit Tigers and SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is having a subpar season, as evidenced by his .207-7-14 line and 65 strikeouts in 198 at-bats. Ouch. It's hard to tell what is causing this horrendous slump, but until he figures it out let Gordon slide on your roster as well.

Royals | Alex Gordon returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:43:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon will bat seventh and start in left field against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 10. C Salvador Perez will bat second and serve as the designated hitter, while C Drew Butera starts behind the plate and bats ninth. DH/OF Kendrys Morales will bat third and play first base, with 1B Eric Hosmer receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is just 4-for-28 at the plate this month and is batting .201 through 194 at-bats entering play Sunday, so he should be avoided in all formats. Butera is batting .286 with two home runs and eight RBI through 56 at-bats this season and should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS.

Royals | Alex Gordon, Jarrod Dyson resting

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 10:26:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals OFs Alex Gordon and Jarrod Dyson are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley Saturday, July 9. 2B/OF Whit Merrifield will bat leadoff and start in left field, INF Christian Colon will play second base and bat second, OF Paulo Orlando will bat sixth and play center field and OF Brett Eibner will hit seventh and start in right field.

Fantasy Tip: The Royals are only using one left-handed batter (1B Eric Hosmer) Saturday versus the southpaw Miley, which explains the absences of Gordon and Dyson from the lineup. Colon and Eibner should only be viewed as desperation sources of salary cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Royals | Alex Gordon leading off vs. St. Louis

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 13:41:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is leading off against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Thursday, June 30. Royals 2B/OF Whit Merrifield and SS Alcides Escobar are batting second and seventh, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: The KC leadoff spot could be a daily guessing game, but Gordon and Merrifield should maintain starter status in the majority of leagues regardless of where they bat. Escobar, however, is a low-end fantasy option in deep mixed leagues because he isn't the 30-steals commodity he was once was, and hitting atop the lineup is a big boon to his stock. Manager Ned Yost usually settles with a lineup and sticks with it, though, so expect some stability sooner than latter in the one-hole.

Royals | Night off vs. Cards for Alex Gordon

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:39:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. 2B Christian Colon draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon played the past three games and is freshly back from a lengthy injury absence due to a fracture in his right wrist. Be patient with him as he shakes off the rust and expect a few nights off along the way. Colon is nothing more than a desperation option in seasonal formats, but he is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 12:42:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) is back in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Saturday, June 25, batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has been sidelined for more than a month because of a right wrist injury and hadn't been playing well prior to getting hurt. He should be avoided in DFS until he proves that he can be both healthy and productive again.

Royals | Alex Gordon activated from disabled list

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 12:00:34 -0700

The Kansas City Royals have activated OF Alex Gordon (wrist) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, OF Brett Eibner has been optioned to Class AAA Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was only hitting .211 with four home runs and 10 RBI prior to landing on the disabled list with a right wrist injury. He's worth owning in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues but should be avoided in DFS during his first few games back.

Royals | Alex Gordon could return Saturday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 21:43:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) played in his fifth rehab game for Class AAA Omaha on Friday, June 24, and could be activated from the DL before the team's game on Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was really struggling before the injury (.211-4-10) so there's no rush to pick him up in standard leagues. However, those is deeper mixed setups could consider stashing Gordon in the hope that he can get back on track.

Royals | Alex Gordon doubles in rehab game

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 17:25:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) went 1-for-3 in his first rehab game Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was struggling before his injury, and while you can hang on to him in AL-only leagues, you should be able to find better options on waivers in mixed formats.
