Reds | Joey Votto on fire

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:25:53 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto hit another home run Wednesday, Sept. 2, and he is batting .399 with a .576 on-base percentage since the All-Star break, which are both bests in baseball.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is already one of the more safe FantasyScore first basemen because of his consistent ability to reach base, but when he's swinging this well, you need to ride him.

Reds | Joey Votto posts huge stat line

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 19:09:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, three runs scored and three RBIs Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the San Diego Padres. He also added his seventh stolen base of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been scuffling in the month of August, entering the game Wednesday just 4-for-29 (.138) with no homers or RBIs. FantasyScore players will want to see more stat lines like Wednesday before trusting him again.

Reds | Joey Votto likes facing D-backs

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:19:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto has a slash line of .373/.458/.569 with four home runs and 16 RBI in 29 career games against the Arizona Diamondbacks, who he faces Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is always an attractive FantasyScore option, especially because he gets on base frequently. Facing D-backs starter Chase Anderson fresh off the DL makes him even more worthy to be in your lineups tonight. Votto has a .307/.437/.553 slash line and .990 OPS against right-handers this year with 16 of his 19 long balls.

Reds | Joey Votto receives day off

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 07:47:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 2B Skip Schumaker will start in left field and hit second in the order, while 2B Ivan De Jesus will start at first base and hit eighth against RHP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .317 through 73 plate appearances against righties this season. It would be nicer to see him a little higher in the order, but De Jesus has some upside to offer FantasyScore owners. Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has an on-base percentage of just .305 for the season, and he has very little to offer FantasyScore owners despite hitting at the top of the lineup.

Reds | Joey Votto on hot streak

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 07:05:00 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is hitting .548 since the All-Star break and has 10 hits in his last 17 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has at least two hits in six of his last seven games with two home runs and three RBI during that span. Votto should be a nightly starting option in FantasyScore while he is on this hot streak.

Reds | Joey Votto hits 18th home run

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 06:55:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto went 3-for-5 with a solo home run during the Reds' 6-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) entered the game with a .447/.567/.723 slash line with nine runs, four doubles, three home runs and six RBI over his past 13 games, and is clearly in fine form for the rest of his series at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Continue to view Votto as a high-end fantasy option in all formats until he cools back down at the dish.

Reds | Joey Votto cooling off

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 12:36:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto has just nine runs, two home runs, seven RBI and a .242/.381/.341 slash ine over his past 26 games and 113 plate appearances. His 17.7% walk rate ranks third among qualified batters over the past 30 days, though, according to FanGraphs.com.

Fantasy Tip: Votto's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) willingness to work the count and take a free base can be a hindrance to his fantasy upside. Though, it isn't as big an issue in leagues including on-base percentage or points formats, like FantasyScore. Still his .341 slugging percentage isn't favorable anywhere. Monitor his progress going forward, but his fake value is trending down.

Reds | Joey Votto sitting vs. tough lefty

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 13:41:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 17. 2B Chris Dominguez is batting sixth and playing first base against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was due for a night off, and there might not be any better time than against a daunting southpaw. For the season, Votto has a .943 OPS with 14 home runs and appears to be in the midst of a bounce-back campaign. Dominguez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Reds | Joey Votto hitting third

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:35:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto is hitting third Saturday, June 13, against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: Votto ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was moved down a spot to third yesterday, and he looks to have a home there with Billy Hamilton hitting ninth. He has three leadoff-type guys ahead of him and figures to have plenty of RBI opportunities. With a .320-3-5 mark over the last seven days, he's a great start on FantasyScore.

Reds | Joey Votto tees off vs. Phillies

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 19:21:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto hit three home runs with four scored and four driven in during the Reds' 11-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Votto's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) outburst brought his slash line up to .300/.406/.560 for the season, as he continues his rebound campaign. And he now has a respectable 13 home runs and 35 RBI. FantasyScore owners will want to be somewhat picky when utilizing Votto in contests, because first base is arguably the deepest position in daily fantasy. However, he has reestablished himself a reliable option in all fantasy formats, but especially in on-base percentage ones.
