Sat, 21 May 2016 10:32:17 -0700

Reds | Zack Cozart out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:37:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Sunday, May 15. INF Ivan De Jesus will play shortstop and bat seventh, while OF Tyler Holt will play center field and serve as the leadoff hitter.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus is just 6-for-42 at the plate and is not a recommended fantasy option. Holt is 3-for-10 versus left-handed pitching and is hitting .385 on the road this year, so he has a very favorable matchup this afternoon.

Reds | Four CIN regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 08 May 2016 08:11:50 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Each of the four players filling in for the regulars who are resting should be viewed as nothing more than sources of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy contests.

Reds | Zack Cozart out Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:22:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) is not in the lineup once again Tuesday, May 3, against the San Francisco Giants. Cozart's replacement is SS Ivan De Jesus, who will hit second against Giants SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart is likely day-to-day, so keep him stashed on your bench until the team activates him. As for DeJesus, he is mostly a slap hitter with limited power so you may want to look for another shortstop in daily leagues.

Reds | Zack Cozart out of lineup

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:38:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 2. SS Ivan De Jesus is starting at the 6 and is batting second against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto. Also, OF Billy Hamilton moves to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart's injury is perplexing because it's the same knee he had surgery on last year. Make plans to replace him in case he's out for an extended period. De Jesus has very little power or speed and is a weak daily option against Cueto. Hamilton is only useful for is speed and struggles to reach base consistently, but he gains some daily value in the move to the top of the order today.

Reds | Brandon Phillips still out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:46:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (finger) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at second base again and is hitting second against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey.

Fantasy Tip: De Jesus hit his first home run of the year last night, but that shouldn't lead you to believe he'll be a great value play in daily games two days in a row. After all, De Jesus has only five career home runs, including his long ball last night.

Reds | Brandon Phillips out Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:09:55 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (finger) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the New York Mets. 2B Ivan De Jesus Jr. will hit seventh against Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Phillips may miss a bit of time but the X-rays were negative. If you are in daily leagues keep an eye out for his status and avoid him accordingly. De Jesus is 2-for-9 in the past week and carries little, if any, fantasy value.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco, Zack Cosart resting

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:14:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco and SS Zack Cozart are out of the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, April 24. C Tucker Barnhart will start behind the plate and bat seventh, while INF Ivan De Jesus will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is 8-for-24 this season and is a solid option for daily fantasy owners looking for an inexpensive backstop. De Jesus has just one hit in 18 at-bats and should be avoided in all formats this afternoon.

Reds | Zack Cozart, Devin Mesoraco out

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:08:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (quadriceps) and C Devin Mesoraco are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh, while C Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey. Also, OF Billy Hamilton moves up to the leadoff spot with Cozart out.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart's injury isn't believed to be serious, but keep an eye on his status and keep him out of your lineups for now. De Jesus and Barnhart don't move the needle very much in any fantasy format. Hamilton gains added value in daily formats with a move to the top of the lineup.

Reds | Three players sitting for Cincinnati

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 08:28:05 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart, C Devin Mesoraco and OF Adam Duvall are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Saturday, April 9. OF Scott Schebler will start in left field and is batting sixth. 2B Ivan De Jesus will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Tucker Barnhart will be the catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Schebler could be an option for some daily fantasy league owners, while Barnhart could be used in NL-only leagues that start two catchers. De Jesus can be avoided by most owners.
