Cubs | Jason Heyward dropped further in lineup

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:41:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jason Heyward is batting seventh, and C Miguel Montero is batting fifth against Chicago White Sox SP Anthony Ranaudo Wednesday, July 27. Cubs OF/C Willson Contreras is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward has been a total bust for the Cubs and sits with an underwhelming .228/.315/.315 slash line for the season. He's not a viable starter outside of deep mixed and NL-only settings. Montero is receiving more playing time of late and has a .346 on-base percentage since the All-Star break, but he's still nothing more than a low-end fantasy option in deep leagues. Contreras is worth owning universally.

Cubs | Willson Contreras not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:42:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Willson Contreras is not in the lineup Tuesday, July 26, against the Chicago White Sox. C Miguel Montero will bat eighth against White Sox SP James Shields.

Fantasy Tip: The presence of a DH has thrown off the lineup a bit. Kris Bryant is the DH and Tommy LaStella is at third, for example. Montero is hitting .204-5-21 and doesn't carry much fantasy value in place of Contreras.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out Saturday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:31:00 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with C Willson Contreras hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Contreras has cooled a bit with a .262-2-6 line this month, but he's in a peak spot in the lineup to contribute against Zach Davies.

Cubs | Ben Zobrist, Miguel Montero out

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:40:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist and C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 17. SS Javier Baez will start at second base and is batting first. 3B Kris Bryant will start at third base, while C Willson Contreras will start at catcher. OF Matt Szczur will start in left field and is batting seventh. OF Albert Almora is starting in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Szczur has at least one hit in each of his last three games and can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Almora is hitting only .217 this month and probably can be avoided by most fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: Both Baez and Contreras make great starts at their position against lefty Cody Reed.

Cubs | Jeimer Candelario starting at hot corner

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 07:56:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Jeimer Candelario will bat sixth in his MLB debut against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, July 3. In addition, INF Javier Baez will bat seventh and play shortstop, while C David Ross starts behind the plate and bats eighth. SS Addison Russell and C Miguel Montero have the day off.

Fantasy Tip: The 22-year-old Candelario hit .333 in 25 games for Class AAA Iowa with 12 extra-base hits and is worth monitoring in keeper and dynasty formats, as well as deep seasonal leagues. Baez is 8-for-25 with two home runs and seven RBI over the past week and is an excellent option for daily fantasy games. Ross is receiving the start because SP Jon Lester is on the mound for Chicago but he is just 5-for-30 since June 1, and is not a recommended fantasy option.

Cubs | Addison Russell, Miguel Montero out

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 11:22:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell and C Miguel Montero are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. 2B/OF Javier Baez is starting at the 6 and is hitting sixth, while C David Ross is behind the plate and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb.

Fantasy Tip: It's a normal day off for Russell, while Montero sits against the lefty pitcher. Baez has a nice power-speed combination and is hitting .278 with four home runs and 15 RBI this month. He's a fine player to add to all fantasy lineups tonight. Ross is a light-hitting catcher that makes for a low-end DFS pick.
