Dodgers | Yasiel Puig sitting again vs. Rays

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:02:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting fourth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Puig has been a headache all season and is having a career-worst campaign with a .255/.316/.376 slash line and just seven home runs. He's not a must-start outfielder in most leagues at this point. Van Slyke owns a .308/.379/.538 slash line against left-handed pitchers this season, and he's a strong option in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig not playing Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:20:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and is batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha.

Fantasy Tip: Hamstring problems have already put Puig on the DL once this year, so don't be surprised if he's headed there again. At this point, the disappointment far outweighs the power-speed combination that Puig has failed to deliver for fantasy owners. It's not out of the question to move on in a lot of mixed leagues. Van Slyke isn't very attractive to DFS owners tonight. After all, he's hitting just .191 with no homers and two RBI against righties in 2016.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson sitting vs. Nationals

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:08:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting fifth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, July 19, and he's now likely to settle into an outfield platoon with Van Slyke. Van Slyke owns a career .268/.372/.495 slash line against southpaws, so he's a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez gets a day off

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:05:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray on Sunday, July 17. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will replace him in the field and bat cleanup. 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Andrew Toles are also not starting, and will be replaced by INF Chris Taylor (hitting sixth), C A.J. Ellis (seventh) and newly promoted rookie SS/OF Zach Walters (eighth), respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez remains a very good hitter (.287), but he has only homered twice and driven in 17 runs since the end of May, so he can be benched in most fantasy leagues. The same can be said for Utley, while Grandal emerged as a back-end starting catcher option with a strong first-half finish. None of the today's four replacements need to be considered outside of deep mixed or NL-only formats.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sitting out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:20:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and OF Trayce Thompson are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday, July 15. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in center field and is batting sixth. SS Chris Taylor will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke is hitting .278 with one home run and four RBI against left-handed pitchers in 18 at-bats this season but is not the best option for owners. Taylor is hitting only .211 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

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 | Yasiel Puig, Yasmani Grandal out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 10:29:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with OF Scott Van Slyke and C A.J. Ellis hitting seventh and eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke is a basement flyer if a lefty were on the mound, but he doesn't hit righties as well. Neither are good options against Kevin Gausman.

Dodgers | Monday Dodgers lineup light

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:04:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Monday, June 27. OF Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting third, 1B Scott Van Slyke is hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis hit seventh and SS Chris Taylor hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has struggled this month, but he has upside in the three-hole against Francisco Liriano. Hernandez and Van Slyke are worth low-end consideration against the lefty. Ellis and Taylor don't move the needle much.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 13:52:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 26. 1B Scott Van Slyke is in the lineup and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Chad Kuhl.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off, as Gonzalez hasn't been out of the starting lineup all week. Van Slyke has minimal at-bats and low fantasy value as a result, and it is best to stay away.

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.
