Braves | Gordon Beckham, Adonis Garcia out

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:02:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham and 3B Adonis Garcia are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood Sunday, July 24. 2B Jace Peterson will at second base, while OF Jeff Francoeur will start in left field and is batting fifth. SS Chase d'Arnaud will start at third base and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has only two hits in his last 16 at-bats but does have two home runs and eight RBI this month. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use. D'Arnaud has six hits and three RBI in his last four games but probably should only he used in NL-only leagues.

Braves | Two Braves sitting out

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:46:36 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Erick Aybar and 2B Jace Peterson are out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with SS Chase d'Arnaud leading off and OF Jeff Francoeur hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Frenchy is hanging around, in part, because of what he does against left-handed pitchers. He faces lefty Tyler Anderson in Coors Field and looks to be a dynamite low-end flyer. As for d'Arnaud, he hits slightly better against lefties, and he's a solid low-end option as well.

Braves | Chase d'Arnaud draws into lineup

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 07:35:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves INF Chase d'Arnaud is starting in left field and batting second against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Wednesday, July 20. OF Jeff Francoeur is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud boasts modest contact skills and an ability to reach base, but his .263/.335/.365 slash line hardly stops traffic, and it's an unfavorable matchup against DeSclafani. View d'Arnaud as a low-end depth piece in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues and it's likely best to fade him in daily contests Wednesday. Francoeur's steady playing time (13 starts in July) makes him a volume own in the deepest of leagues, but he hardly moves the fantasy needle with a .677 OPS and just five home runs for the campaign.

Braves | Chase d'Arnaud wins with single

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:57:20 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Chase d'Arnaud had three hits Sunday, July 17, including an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning, as the Braves beat the Colorado Rockies, 1-0.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud has improved his average to .263, with a slugging percentage of .365. It hasn't been a good season for most Atlanta players, but d'Arnaud has been a decent player as of late. He may be a good starting candidate in DFS and in deeper NL and mixed leagues.

Braves | Several Atlanta regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:23:22 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Gordon Beckham, SS Erick Aybar and C A.J. Pierzynski are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Sunday, July 17. INF/OF Jace Peterson will bat leadoff and play second base, INF Chase d'Arnaud will bat second and play shortstop, OF Jeff Francoeur will bat fifth and play left field and C Anthony Recker will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has hit safely in eight of his last nine games and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy contests, while Peterson, d'Arnaud and Recker should be viewed strictly as a source of desperation salary cap relief.

Braves | Jeff Francoeur to be DH

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 09:45:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Jeff Francoeur will serve as the designated hitter against Chicago White Sox SP James Shields Sunday, July 10. SS Chase d'Arnaud will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur has posted decent numbers this season and should be a starting option in deeper fantasy leagues. D'Arnaud is hitting only .143 over the last seven days and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Braves | Nick Markakis will be DH

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 08:37:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis will serve as the designated hitter against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Saturday, July 9. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field, while SS Chase d'Arnaud will start in left field and is batting first.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis has posted solid numbers this season and should be a decent starting option for owners. Francoeur should be considered by owners in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .286 with three RBI over the last seven days. D'Arnaud has struggled over the last week and can be avoided by owners.

Braves | Jace Peterson takes a seat

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:21:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Chris Sale Friday, July 8. SS Chase d'Arnaud is starting in left field and batting leadoff, while 2B Gordon Beckham starts at second base and hits second.

Fantasy Tip: Both d'Arnaud and Beckham aren't offensive juggernauts and face a daunting matchup in Sale Friday night. They're both basically depth options in NL-only leagues and should be avoided in DFS play tonight.

Braves | Ender Inciarte out again

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 14:30:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Ender Inciarte (groin) is out for the second straight game Sunday, July 3, against the Miami Marlins. OF Chase d'Arnaud is in the lineup and hitting second against Marlins SP Adam Conley.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Inciarte off your active rosters until he is deemed safe to return, and even then you may want to wait a game or two. As for d'Arnaud, he is hitting .271-1-9 but has six stolen bases. D'Arnaud's fantasy value for now largely revolves around speed, but he is part-timer at best.

Braves | Jace Peterson back in lineup Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:12:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jace Peterson is back in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Saturday, July 2, with INF/OF Chase d'Arnaud batting second and playing center field. In addition, C A.J. Pierzynski will hit seventh and start behind the plate, while OF Emilio Bonifacio hits eighth and plays left field. OFs Jeff Francoeur and Ender Inciarte and C Tyler Flowers are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is batting .393 in 28 at-bats over the past week and is hitting .348 with a home run and six RBI in just 23 at-bats versus the Fish this season, so he's worth considering in DFS as a source of productive cap relief. D'artaud, Pierzynski and Bonifacio can be ignored in DFS this afternoon.
