Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. 2B Jose Peraza is starting at shortstop and batting second against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Cozart is having a sneaky fantasy season with 53 runs, 15 home runs, 41 RBI and a .265/.317/.471 slash line. He's a viable starter in most fantasy leagues, but you'll want to sub him out where you can Sunday. Peraza is a highly regarded youngster, but he isn't receiving the playing time to carry value as anything more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. View Peraza as a potential flier in daily contests Sunday, though.

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart went 2-for-5 with his 14th home run of the season Wednesday, July 6, versus the Chicago Cubs. It was a solo homer to lead off the game and produced his only run scored and RBI in the contest. He also registered his second stolen base of the year.
Fantasy Tip: Cozart has been one of the most underrated shortstops in all of baseball in 2016, now owning a .271/.322/.495 slash line to go with his 14 long balls and 38 RBI. He's been out to such a strong start that he's already one homer off his career high of 15, set back in 2012. The 30-year-old has been a great story after suffering a season-ending injury early on a year ago.
