From -- thru  --


Dodgers | Chase Utley, Joc Pederson resting

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:38:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and OF Joc Pederson are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Drew Smyly Wednesday, May 4. 2B Howie Kendrick is at the keystone and is hitting fifth, while OF Trayce Thompson starts in center field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Kendrick and Thompson had big games in the win over the Rays last night, so those in daily games could elect to roll the dice and hope they stay hot. Other than big nights Tuesday, Kendrick and Thompson haven't done a whole lot with the bats. The matchup against Smyly, who's been very strong, isn't a kind one, though.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns after a day off

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:24:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is in the lineup Sunday, May 01, against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz and will bat leadoff. The Dodgers will get a host of other regulars a day off, however, as 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal, OF Carl Crawford and OF Joc Pederson are not starting. In their place, OF Enrique Hernandez will occupy left field and bat second, 2B/3B Howie Kendrick will play second base and hit fifth, OF Trayce Thompson will spell Pederson in center and bat sixth, and C A.J. Ellis will catch and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is mired in a 7-for-51 slump since the middle of April following a hot start and is probably needs to be benched in most leagues for now, although manager Dave Roberts is obviously showing a lot of faith in his struggling slugger by batting him leadoff today. Utley is getting a rest day and has cooled slightly after batting over .300 for most of April, but he should be inserted back in lineups Tuesday when the Dodgers hit the road to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson gets night off again

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:18:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson (rest) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27, against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino. OF Trayce Thompson is in his place in center field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: For the second time in three days, Pederson finds himself on the bench, which isn't all that surprising with a left-hander on the mound. Thompson fared well in his last start on Monday, when he collected two hits, including a homer, so he might have some potential here for daily fantasy owners seeking a fine low-price bat from tonight's full slate.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson gets night off

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:36:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson (rest) will not be in the starting lineup Monday, April 25, versus Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen. OF Trayce Thompson is getting the start in center field and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a regular day off for the third-year outfielder, who had registered at least one hit in six of his past seven ballgames. Thompson gets the nod in his place, and while he showed some notable potential last year as a rookie, he hasn't really done anything of note just yet in his sophomore campaign. Owners can find better low-price options for daily games tonight.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out of the lineup

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:31:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner was not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Sunday, April 24. 2B Howie Kendrick will start at third base, while OF Trayce Thompson will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has recorded only one hit in his last seven games, so owners should be able to find better options to use for their starting lineups.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sitting out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:35:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner and 2B Howie Kendrick are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Trayce Thompson is hitting fifth, and 3B Charlie Culberson is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is hitting .308 and is a good low-end flyer against Matt Wisler. Culberson doesn't possess the DFS clout for the start, though.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig enjoys rare day off

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:55:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto on Saturday, April 16. OF Trayce Thompson will occupy his spot in right field and bat eighth. 2B Chase Utley and SS Corey Seager are both back in the lineup after a day off and hitting first and second, respectively. C Yasmani Grandal will make his third appearance of the season behind the plate and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig was due a rest after playing in each of the Dodgers' first 11 games, while Utley returns to the lineup against a right-hander after the Dodgers faced southpaws the last two days. Seager should be plugged right back into all lineups, while Grandal should probably be left on benches for now after coming off the disabled list earlier this week. On a side note, DFS players will be happy to know the red-hot Enrique Hernandez, who homered twice off Madison Bumgarner on Friday, will remain in the lineup.

Dodgers | Three L.A. regulars rested

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 14:20:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and SS Corey Seager are out of the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, April 15. OF Trayce Thompson is in center and hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and batting seventh, while OF Charlie Culberson is starting at the 6 and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Against the MadBum, we can't seriously recommend any of Thompson, Ellis or Culberson as attractive deep sleeper picks for daily gamers.

Dodgers | Several Dodgers starters resting

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 15:41:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner, OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and 2B Chase Utley are all out of the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Thursday, April 14. 2B Howie Kendrick moves to third base, C Austin Barnes is starting at second and hitting eighth, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and batting sixth, while OF Enrique Hernandez gets the start in left and is leading off.

Fantasy Tip: With a lot of moving parts in the Los Angeles lineup tonight, you should certainly consider using Ray in your lineup this evening. Barnes and Thompson are deep sleepers as lotto tickets in daily games. Hernandez, who has some thump in his stick, could be a sneaky deep sleeper while hitting leadoff.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson out vs. lefty

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 09:23:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, April 12. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in center field and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is a young outfielder that is still developing. He could eventually realize his 20-20 potential, but not until he has a clear path to everyday playing time, and that won't come in 2016. For that reason he's a bench option in NL-only formats for now.
