Fantasy Tip: Before the injury, Fowler ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was scoring runs at will with 10 over his previous 10 games, and he stole three bases, too. During the span, he also sported a .279/.380/.488 slash line with five extra-base hits. Typicallly, FatasyScore players are encouraged to be cautious with players returning from injury, but Fowler pinch hit Thursday, April 23, and Fowler is in an ideal lineup spot to to continue touching home plate frequently.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be good to go for Friday's game against the Cincinnati Reds and starter Mike Leake. Fowler is attractive to FantasyScore users atop the Chicago lineup, and he should be in consideration for your daily lineups tomorrow if he returns at a hitter-friendly ballpark in Cincy.

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (groin) left the game Wednesday, April 22, against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to tightness in his right groin.
Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($3,000; 6.0% of cap) was replaced by Chris Denorfia ($1,900; 3.8% of cap), who might get a start in Fowler's place if he is forced to miss time. FantasyScore owners will want to avoid Fowler until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Legs are obviously an important part of his game.

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.
