Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler hit two triples, walked twice, scored a pair of runs and added two RBI against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, April 11.
Fantasy Tip: All three of Fowler's ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hits this season have gone for extra bases, and while he isn't off to the hottest start, the cap hit presents a profit opportunity in favorable matchups. Fowler projects to have a nice season batting atop the Cubs lineup. Keep him in mind for FantasyScore contests Sunday, too, as he'll set the table in Coors Field against underwhelming Jordan Lyles.
