Cubs | Dexter Fowler returns to the lineup

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:35:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is playing center field and batting first against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Friday, June 26. Fowler has been limited to pinch hitting since leaving the game with an ankle injury Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hasn't been at his best of late and sports a .163/.229/.256 slash line dating back to Friday, June 12. Still, he has plenty of upside leading off for the Cubs and hitting in front of their two best hitters. Consider Fowler a risk/reward FantasyScore play Friday.

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:38:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, with OF Chris Denorfia taking his place.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is in a 3-for-21 skid, but he's still hitting .319 on the season. He's not a bad basement option against Carlos Frias today.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler remains out

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:04:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Chris Denorfia is playing right field and batting first, and OF Matt Szczur is playing center field and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is missing his second consecutive game, but he did appear as a pinch hitting Tuesday, June 23, so it is safe to say he should return soon. In the meantime, Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) clocks in as a viable low-priced flier, and Szczur as a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler day-to-day

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:11:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 23, and is day-to-day with a left ankle injury. He could be available to pinch hit Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler looks like he'll avoid a trip to the DL, and he could return to the lineup tomorrow. Matt Szczur is starting again tonight after homering off Clayton Kershaw Monday night. Starting him tonight against Los Angeles Dodgers starter Zack Greinke would be foolish.

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:17:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler is batting fourth against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, May 27.

His run total will suffer for the duration of his tenure in the cleanup spot, but he will see more RBI opportunities, especially hitting behind Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo.

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:35:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler has a .431 on-base percentage during his 13-game on-base streak which dates back to Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: During the stretch, Fowler ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has 15 runs, three home runs, six RBI and two stolen bases with a .304/.431/.609 slash line. He is thriving setting the table for the powerful Chicago lineup, and he is a threat to lead the National League in runs scored.
