Braves | Chris Johnson starting at 3B

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:04:19 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson will start in the field and hit fourth in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Philadelphia Phillies and LHP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) in .321 through 58 plate appearances against lefties this season, and he'll offer some cap relief to FantasyScore owners in GPP tournaments.

Braves | Chris Johnson draws into the lineup

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:40:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is starting at third base and batting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is 9-for-41 in July with a .506 OPS, which is his lowest mark of any month this season. Harang ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) presents a potentially favorable pitching matchup, but FantasyScore players should likely aim higher than Johnson Thursday.

Braves | No Chris Johnson against Orioles

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:11:41 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, July 29. 2B Daniel Castro is starting at third base and batting ninth against Orioles SP Chris Tillman Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has only started one of the past four games, and he could be on the outside of playing time looking in going forward, especially if the Braves decide to take a long look at what they've got in the their stable. FantasyScore players should view Castro ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief Wednesday.

Braves | Chris Johnson as DH Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:33:33 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is serving as the designated hitter and batting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a mediocre third base play on FantasyScore, although he can help with salary cap relief for the needy. Johnson doesn't have much power (just one homer this year), but hitting at Camden Yards could help tonight.

Braves | Chris Johnson not in the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 09:08:27 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, July 26. 3B Adonis Garcia will start at third base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Garcia has gone 1-for-4 since joining the Braves and should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Braves | Chris Johnson starting in 1B

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:12:13 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson will start at first base against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson Tuesday, July 21, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) likely is in the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. He is hitting .250 this month but has not recorded an RBI in his last 23 games, so owners should be able to find better options.

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 11:45:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves INF Chris Johnson will start at first base and bat fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Saturday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .362 versus lefties this season and is 1-for-5 against Lester in his career. He is a notable source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners Saturday.

Braves | Juan Uribe returns to action

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 10:36:23 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Juan Uribe is batting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Saturday, July 11. INF Chris Johnson, who started at the hot corner Friday, will play first base Saturday and bat cleanup, with INF Kelly Johnson getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 7-for-33 in his career against De La Rosa but is batting .292 since joining the Braves and is hitting .321 away from home this season, making him one of the biggest bargains in FantasyScore. Chris Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is another potential source of cap-friendly production this afternoon, with a .455 mark over the past week and two hits in three career at-bats against De La Rosa.

Braves | Chris Johnson draws into lineup

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 12:56:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves 3B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a very acceptable sleeper pick on FantasyScore while playing at Coors Field tonight against Kendrick. Kendrick sports a 6.70 ERA and has allowed 13 home runs in seven games at Coors this season.

Braves | Kelly Johnson not in the lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:39:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 5. Chris Johnson will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Chris Johnson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded a hit in only four of his last 16 games and probably should not be considered a starting option on FantasyScore.
