Dodgers | Four Dodgers regulars sitting

Mon, 23 May 2016 16:04:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford, 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Joc Pederson are all out of the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP Brandon Finnegan Monday, May 23. OF Enrique Hernandez is playing left field and leading off, 2B Howie Kendrick is at second base and is batting cleanup, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and hitting fifth, while C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Against Finnegan, Hernandez, Kendrick and Thompson all make for solid value picks in DFS tonight. Kendrick hit his first home run of the year Sunday and is in a prime spot to take advantage for his owners. Ellis remains a low-end catching option, especially while batting low in the lineup.

Dodgers | Chase Utley, Joc Pederson out

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:53:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and OF Joc Pederson are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Christian Friedrich Friday, May 20. 2B Howie Kendrick is playing second and hitting cleanup, while OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has hit cleanup now for the last handful of games but hasn't capitalized and remains a low-end second base option in all fantasy formats. Thompson, on the other hand, has succeeded against lefties (.286, three home runs) and continues to see regular playing time in the outfield. He's an excellent DFS value pick tonight and should start seeing love for outfield depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues if he hasn't already.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson goes yard twice

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:17:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson hit two home runs Tuesday, May 17, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. For the game, he finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI.

Fantasy Tip: This was a refreshing performance from the 24-year-old, as he only had seven hits in May prior to Tuesday night's outburst. While the Dodgers have developed a bit of a logjam in the outfield, Pederson is at least safe with his consistent at-bats, and hopefully there's more to come from this two-homer night.

Dodgers | Five Dodgers regulars sitting

Mon, 09 May 2016 14:37:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Carl Crawford, C Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and SS Corey Seager are not in the starting lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Steven Matz Monday, May 9. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in left field and hitting leadoff, 2B Howie Kendrick is at the keystone and batting second, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and is hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and hitting seventh and OF Charlie Culberson is starting at shortstop and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you get all of these guys out of your daily rosters tonight against the lefty. Only Hernandez and Kendrick are really worth your attention as sleeper picks against Matz in DFS action while hitting at the top of the lineup. Thompson, Ellis and Culberson are all desperation plays. Matz is certainly worth paying for as the Dodgers trot out a less than ideal lineup.

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 | Yasiel Puig takes a seat

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:25:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with OF Joc Pederson hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: It's a big boost in the lineup for Pederson, who has hit near the bottom all season. He has a .262-2-8 line on the season but has fanned 17 times in 42 at-bats. He's a solid midrange option against Matt Wisler.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson goes deep

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 20:13:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in a 3-1 win over the San Francisco Giants Sunday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson has power to spare, but he is also a strikeout machine. Consider him an all-or-nothing play against right-handed pitchers in DFS formats.
