Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. SS Jonathan Herrera will be the starting second baseman and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Russell ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has played in each of the last 11 games, so he is probably receiving a day off. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is coming off a two-hit performance in his last start but is hitting only .231 this season and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. 2B Addison Russell will be the starting shortstop for the game and is batting ninth, while SS Jonathan Herrera will start at second base and is batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup in the next day or two. Russell ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has only three hits in his last six games but could still be an attractive option on FantasyScore. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .204 this season and probably should not be a starting option.

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.

Chicago Cubs 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, May 24, in place of 2B Addison Russell. He is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is receiving the day off and should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Herrera ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is not much more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore.

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, April 29. SS Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and batting ninth Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) from your lineups Wednesday. FantasyScore players should view Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) as nothing more than a low-priced flier with emerging-star Gerrit Cole on the hill for the Pirates. Russell is likely just receiving a routine day off which will provide him two consecutive rest days, as the Cubs don't play Thursday, April 30. While Russell has struck out 14 times in 29 plate appearances, he is beginning to show life at the dish. He has three runs, three doubles and five RBI over his last five games.

Chicago Cubs 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Friday, April 17.
Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a weak-hitting utility infielder that should be ignored at FantasyScore, especially while hitting at the bottom of the lineup against an ace like Shields.

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and hitting ninth in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Olt's injury doesn't seem to be too serious, and he was feeling better Tuesday, so he could be back in the starting lineup tomorrow. Herrera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't recommended for FantasyScore lineups, even against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.
