Braves | Gordon Beckham, Kelly Johnson sitting

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:52:46 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2Bs Gordon Beckham and Kelly Johnson are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the hot corner and is hitting second, while 2B Reid Brignac is starting at second and batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud and Brignac should be very low on your potential list of lineup selections in daily setups. D'Arnaud has a little more luster as a deep sleeper because of his position in the lineup, but you can surely find better options on a day with a full slate of games.

Braves | Kelly Johnson, Erick Aybar out

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:47:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson and SS Erick Aybar are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Sunday, May 22. 3B Gordon Beckham will start at second base, while SS Chase d'Arnaud will start at third base and is batting second. 2B Daniel Castro will start at shortstop and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has been pretty quiet over the past week, while d'Arnaud has posted a .474 batting average during the same span. Owners probably can pass on Castro in most leagues, but d'Arnaud can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues.

Braves | Several ATL regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:00:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Kelly Johnson, C A.J. Pierzynski, OF Mallex Smith are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Saturday, May 21. INF Chase d'Arnaud will bat leadoff and play third base, INF Gordon Beckham will bat second and play second base, OF Jeff Francoeur will play left field and bat cleanup, C Tyler Flowers will start behind the plate and bat sixth and OF Ender Inciarte will bat seventh and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are facing a left-handed pitcher this afternoon, which explains why several of their left-handed-hitting position players are on the bench. Beckham and d'Arnaud are a combined 30-for-86 (.349) this season and should be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in DFS.

Braves | Nick Markakis in cleanup spot

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:34:26 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is hitting cleanup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Friday, May 20. 2B Gordon Beckham is playing third base and moves up to the No. 2 spot in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis, who has no home runs on the year, isn't your prototypical cleanup hitter. In a weak Atlanta lineup, the move to fourth doesn't really do anything to increase his fantasy value. He remains a weak option for outfield depth in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues. Beckham has hit .333 but also has no home runs and eight RBI. The move to the two-hole is good for his daily value, but he, too, doesn't move the fantasy needle all that much.

Braves | No Gordon Beckham Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 12:28:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at the hot corner and is batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano. SS Erick Aybar is starting at second base and hitting sixth, while SS Daniel Castro is at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: None of the Braves infielders tonight aside from Freddie Freeman have much upside at all at the plate, so you should look in another direction.

Braves | Chase d'Arnaud starting vs. Pittsburgh

Mon, 16 May 2016 12:59:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting at third base and batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese Monday, May 16. 3B Gordon Beckham is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud has gone 6-for-19 to start the season, but he has just a single run to show for it. He is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests Monday. Beckham started six straight games since returning from a hamstring injury, and he has also gone 6-for-16 with two runs and three RBI during the stretch. Beckham is a viable NL-only own.

Braves | Gordon Beckham drives in three

Thu, 12 May 2016 20:04:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham finished 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in a 7-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham has been limited to 13 games by injuries, but he is hitting .303. You could do worse if you need a middle infielder in NL-only formats.

Braves | Gordon Beckham to see regular playing time

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:34:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham will see regular playing time at second base and third base moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: This has not been a good season all around for Atlanta, but Beckham has been an exception. He has hit .389 (7-for-18) in the past month and .280 for the season and could be a spark in the Braves' lineup and yours. 2B Daniel Castro carries position versatility since he can play second, third and shortstop, but his bat (.203, 15-for-74) is light and his power is nonexistent (four RBIs). 2B Kelly Johnson (.200) is in the same boat as Castro, and neither carries real value.

Braves | Jeff Francoeur, Gordon Beckham starting

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:04:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in left field and is hitting fifth, while 2B Gordon Beckham draws the start at second base and is hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran Francoeur is making it happen against lefties this year, with a .367 average and three RBI in his 30 at-bats against them. He makes for a decent sleeper pick to save money at an outfield spot in daily formats. Beckham just returned from the DL and isn't all that attractive in his first game back.

Braves | Gordon Beckham back from DL

Tue, 10 May 2016 09:26:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 10. OF Matt Tuiasosopo was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham hadn't done much before getting injured, hitting .280/.357/.360 with no home runs and only three RBI in 25 at-bats. He joins a very mediocre group of utility infielders in Atlanta, and he could see semi-regular at-bats at either third base or second base. Beckham doesn't offer much and is strictly infield depth in NL-only affairs.
