Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw has owned SF

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:53:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw has a 1.63 ERA in his career against the San Francisco Giants, which is the lowest ERA by an active pitcher against any single opponent with a minimum of 25 starts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Fantasy Tip: Everyone already knows that Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) is legit, and he's the highest priced player on FantasyScore for Wednesday's games. Selecting him could make it tough to field a competitive lineup around him, but the Giants have also been pretty bad on the road recently, too.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) owns a 0.95 ERA over his past 11 starts with 105 strikeouts through 85 innings. He is locked in and worth every penny at FantasyScore. It is usually worth budgeting your lineup around him, too.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw owns AL

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 09:27:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw is 4-1 with a 1.48 ERA, 0.72 WHIP, a 61-9 strikeout-to-walk ratio and a .168 opponent's batting average in his last eight starts against the American League. He owns a 0.66 ERA in two career starts against the Oakland Athletics, who he faces Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) is a no-brainer for FantasyScore gamers tonight. The A's have struggled mightily against lefties all season long.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw impresses again

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 18:28:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw took a perfect game into the sixth inning in his win over the Washington Nationals Wednesday, Aug. 12, and he tied Sandy Koufax's record of six straight 200-strikeout seasons. Kershaw tossed eight scoreless innings and is unbeaten in his last seven starts, and it was the sixth straight season he's reached double-digit wins. He allowed three hits and struck out eight in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: It's obvious why Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) is a lock basically every time he toes the rubber on FantasyScore despite his high salary and down year compared to his Cy Young season a year ago.

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 18:14:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw's streak of 37 consecutive scoreless innings came to an end Friday, Aug. 7, when he gave up a solo home run to Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco on his first pitch of the night. It was his first run surrendered since July 3, and his first home run allowed since June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) wound up with a no-decision, after allowing four runs on nine hits over six innings, with two walks and five strikeouts. He will make his next start against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, Aug. 12, and is a must-start in FantasyScore every time he takes the mound.

Fantasy Tip: Remember when Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) was underperforming? His latest gem lowered his ERA to 2.37, and he leads the majors with 192 strikeouts. He is a must-start option at FantasyScore until further notice.

Dodgers | Kershaw scratched, Greinke starting

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:15:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) will not start Friday, July 31. Instead, SP Zack Greinke will start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday. Kershaw will pitch against the Angels Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and ensure Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) is in your starting lineups in seasonal leagues. At FantasyScore, Greinke should be viewed as a top-tier arm with risk. The Angels boast a capable offense, and Greinke is the most expensive player in the entire player pool. Still, Greinke should be on your radar.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw starting Friday

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:33:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) will start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) has averaged 25.33 FantasyScore points without allowing an earned run over his past three outings. There may be a slight injury concern, and the Angels aren't a breeze-through lineup, but Kershaw has been as good as any hurler in the league of late. Start him with confidence in all fantasy formats Friday, including daily contests.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw sits, Bolsinger to start

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:40:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) was scratched Wednesday, July 29, with SP Mike Bolsinger set to take the start against the Oakland Athletics. Kershaw will pitch either Saturday, Aug. 1, or Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP this month and makes a great SP2 on FantasyScore tonight.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw may be scratched

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:16:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) could be scratched from his start Wednesday, July 29, against the Oakland Athletics due to soreness in the hip and gluteus region. SP Mike Bolsinger would be pushed up to start in Kershaw's place, and Kershaw could start Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good matchup whichever gets the ball tonight. Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) is probably at too high of a price to consider, though, because it's tough to build a lineup around him on FantasyScore. Bolsinger ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) would make a nice SP2, though.
