Cardinals | Sticking with Allen Craig

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 12:38:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig continues to be in the starting lineup even though he is hitting .242 this season. He has started 12 of 19 games since OF Oscar Taveras has been recalled for Triple-A Memphis. Some in the organization believe the team is at its best when Craig is at his best. Craig may have created some bad habits in his swing after he suffered a Lisfranc injury last season.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:55:06 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Allen Craig is not in the lineup Wednesday, July 23. OF Oscar Taveras is starting in his place, only his third time in the lineup since July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Matheny is juggling playing time between the two bats, and it's becoming a frustrating game for fantasy owners, especially those who can only change their lineups weekly.

Cardinals | Oscar Taveras in center field

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 13:00:58 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Oscar Taveras is starting in center field Wednesday, July 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: This is what fantasy owners are hoping happens more frequently going forward. Allen Craig, Matt Adams, Matt Holliday and Taveras are all in the lineup. Manager Mike Matheny said he would give Taveras time in center field depending on the stadium. Today's start comes at home, so Taveras could begin getting additional starts in center field if he plays well defensively. NL-only owners will want to monitor this situation closely, as Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos could lose even more playing time.

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 8, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Replace Craig in your lineup. He has been held hitless over his past two games and could begin to lose even more playing time to Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras, if he continues to struggle.

Cardinals | Allen Craig sitting

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 10:26:26 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 3, with OF Oscar Taveras starting in right field. Craig is hitless in his last seven at-bats and is 6-for-34 on the current road trip. SS Jhonny Peralta is moving into the cleanup spot for the fourth time on the road trip.

Fantasy Tip: With Taveras back in the fold, daily lineup manuevering for fantasy purposes might be tricky. You'll have to consistently check the daily lineups to make sure your guy is starting.

Cardinals | Matt Holiday sitting

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:44:14 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (rest) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 1. OF Oscar Taveras is playing right field, and OF Allen Craig is playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Mike Matheny to get creative with his lineups with the addition of Taveras to the mix. Owners will need to monitor the Cardinals lineup daily. Matt Adams will also be affected and Taveras could even see time in center field. Expect Taveras to see enough at-bats to be a worthy add in all formats. Similarly, the routine days off shouldn't amount to enough missed playing time to seriously hurt any of the Cardinals' top players.
