Marlins | Martin Prado not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:38:13 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 3B Chris Johnson is in for Prado, and he will hit seventh against Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Prado is getting a normal night off, so DFS players should avoid Prado accordingly. Johnson carries little fantasy value (7-for-31, .226 average at home) with a .217 batting average overall.

Marlins | Two Marlins out against lefties

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:20:52 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and OF Ichiro Suzuki are out of the lineup Thursday, May 26. SS Adeiny Hechavarria is leading off, and 1B Chris Johnson is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Hechavarria hasn't made much of an impact this season, and it might come as a surprise that he's hitting just .160 against lefties. He has upside at leadoff, but he's probably not a great choice against Drew Smyly. It's much of the same for Johnson, who isn't worth consideration in the barebones lineup today.

Marlins | Justin Bour, Derek Dietrich out vs. lefty

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:26:27 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour and 2B Derek Dietrich are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Matt Moore Monday, May 23. 1B Chris Johnson is at first base and is hitting sixth, while SS Miguel Rojas starts at the keystone and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is batting .382 (21-for-55) and has been successful against lefties, but he's also not much of a threat to leave the yard. Regardless, he could be considered a deep sleeper tonight. Rojas is a light-hitting middle infielder that makes for a desperation play.

Marlins | Two Marlins out Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 07:41:31 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado and SS Adeiny Hechavarria are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 18. C J.T. Realmuto is hitting second, 3B Chris Johnson is hitting seventh and SS Miguel Rojas hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Realmuto is hitting .358 this month, and he's a daily upper-middle option against Jeremy Hellickson. Johnson and Rojas lack the DFS punch for usage today.

Marlins | Justin Bour sitting vs. Nationals

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:14:56 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. 3B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and batting sixth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to sub Bour out of your season lineups where possible. He is riding a solid 10-game stretch with six runs, four home runs and 10 RBI. Bour has upside in deep mixed formats. Johnson fared well against southpaws last season with a .326 batting average, which makes him a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday. He is nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only seasonal formats.

Marlins | Martin Prado has a seat

Sat, 07 May 2016 13:27:24 -0700

Miami Marlins 3B Martin Prado is out of the lineup Saturday, May 7, with 3B Chris Johnson hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is hitting just .219 with one RBI and isn't an option against Jeremy Hellickson.

Marlins | Justin Bour still sidelined

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:31:54 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (finger) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base again and is hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez.

Fantasy Tip: Bour has a dislocated pinkie finger but could return to the lineup soon. The problem is he could be in line for more of a platoon role with Johnson when he returns. Save him for cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Johnson makes a lot of contact but has little power and isn't a great DFS play against the emerging Velasquez.

Marlins | Justin Bour still out

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:34:18 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (finger) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray.

Fantasy Tip: Bour is dealing with a dislocated pinkie finger. While he may avoid the DL, he could miss at least a few more games. Johnson does hit lefty pitcher much better in his career, but he lacks notable power and therefor has a limited fantasy ceiling in all formats.

Marlins | Derek Dietrich, Justin Bour sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:42:12 -0700

Miami Marlins 2B Derek Dietrich and 1B Justin Bour are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 3. SS Miguel Rojas is at the keystone and is batting eighth, while 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rojas is more of a desperation daily selection. Johnson doesn't move the needle much, either, but he does own a .312 career average against southpaws. Johnson doesn't hit for much power but makes steady contact and could return decent value if you're looking for a deep daily sleeper.

Marlins | Justin Bour out again

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:18:47 -0700

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, April 27. 1B Chris Johnson is starting at first base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is likely to continue platooning with Bour at first base, which will limit Bour's fantasy upside in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Johnson has hit over .300 in his career against lefties, but his power isn't as prominent against southpaws. Regardless, he's worth a look against Kazmir tonight as a low-priced first base option in DFS action.
