Cubs | Kris Bryant playing LF

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:17:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Tuesday, June 2. SS Jonathan Herrera receives the start at third base and is hitting ninth. OF Chris Coghlan is out of the lineup against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is a very strong FantasyScore option against the soft-tossing lefty Hand, even though the rookie is hitting .227 (5-for-22) with one home run against southpaws this year. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be ignored.

Cubs | Junior Lake starting Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 09:38:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday, May 29. OF Chris Coghlan will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has some nice pop at the bottom of Chicago's lineup, but he's hit just .228 (93-for-408) in his short major league career against right-handers, and Volquez has been pretty solid with his new team this year. Lake is nothing more than a risky dice roll on FantasyScore tonight.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan leading off

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:25:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is batting leadoff and playing left field against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has picked up his play of late, and is riding a respectable 7-for-23 stretch with four runs, three home runs, four RBI and a .304/.385/.739 slash line. While typically setting the table for a potent lineup is a huge fantasy boost, facing Max Scherzer mitigates it Wednesday. Coghlan should be viewed as a low-price flier with upside for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. His value would skyrocket, especially in the run department, if he does stick in the leadoff spot, though.

Fri, 15 May 2015 08:32:01 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is out of the lineup Friday, May 15, against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Szczur ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is in there, but he shouldn't be in your FantasyScore lineups.

Thu, 07 May 2015 08:47:19 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is leading off Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Cogs ($2,200, 4.4% of your cap) is 5-for-8 (.625) lifetime against Thursday's starter John Lackey. He's a good low-end outfield option on FantasyScore today.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan on the bench

Sat, 02 May 2015 07:27:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has picked up a hit in four of his last six games but only hitting .230, so he is receiving a day off. Chris Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup but is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Junior Lake in starting lineup

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:26:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake, who was called up from the minors Monday, April 27, is starting in left field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Tuesday, April 28. OF Chris Coghlan is on the bench against the left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is the cheapest you can get at FantasyScore after being called up yesterday. He was hitting .289 (13-for-45) with eight RBI and 12 strikeouts at Triple-A Iowa before the call-up. Lake has power, but he swings and misses often, making him a dice roll at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:54:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Chris Coghlan is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will likely be in the outfield mix before too long as he was just activated from the 15-day disabled list. Coghlan is listed as No. 1 on the LF depth chart, but keep an eye on Denorfia moving forward. He has two hits in three at-bats and could move into a platoon with Coghlan against left-handed pitchers.

Cubs | Matt Szczur making first start

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 09:53:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Matt Szczur is making his season debut in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek Friday, April 10. Szczur is starting in left field and batting sixth in place of OF Chris Coghlan.

Fantasy Tip: Szczur ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a reach for a FantasyScore roster spot in his first start of the 2015 season against a left-handed pitcher. It's best to look elsewhere.
