Royals | Alex Gordon returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:43:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon will bat seventh and start in left field against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 10. C Salvador Perez will bat second and serve as the designated hitter, while C Drew Butera starts behind the plate and bats ninth. DH/OF Kendrys Morales will bat third and play first base, with 1B Eric Hosmer receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is just 4-for-28 at the plate this month and is batting .201 through 194 at-bats entering play Sunday, so he should be avoided in all formats. Butera is batting .286 with two home runs and eight RBI through 56 at-bats this season and should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS.

Royals | Eric Hosmer snaps long homerless drought

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 20:16:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer connected on a solo blast - his 15th of the season - to end a 21-game drought without a home run on Monday, July 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: The Royals struggled against Aaron Sanchez all day, so while this solo shot came against Brett Cecil, Hosmer's owners will take this contribution on what was otherwise a slow day for Kansas City's offense. The 26-year-old slugger is in the middle of a modest five-game hitting streak has fared well over his career in limited at-bats against R.A. Dickey and Marcus Stroman - the next two starting pitcher for the Blue Jays - so continue to use him as you normally would.

Royals | Eric Hosmer could be a great play

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 14:29:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer is hitting .262 but has three home runs and 12 RBI in 42 at-bats in the last five years against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber, who he'll face Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: That's good news, because the rest of KC's regulars that have faced Kluber over the years haven't had much success at all. Hosmer has been a beast this year at first base with a .317/.374/.525 slash line and 12 home runs and 38 RBI. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues and is worth paying up for in DFS.

Royals | Eric Hosmer continues to rake in May

Wed, 18 May 2016 17:40:41 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer Wednesday, May 18, opposite the Boston Red Sox. He now has eight home runs on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer has been playing very well since the season first opened up, but he's seemingly turned it up a notch in May, in which he's hitting .351 with five homers and 12 RBI in 16 games. At this rate, Hosmer looks like a solid bet to make the American League All-Star team come July, as he's certainly performed like a fantasy All-Star up to this point.
