Twins | Brian Dozier drives in two more

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 23:38:31 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Brian Dozier went 1-for-4 with a pair of RBIs Saturday, July 16, against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier's average has plummeted in the month of July, but he has at least one RBI in three straight games with a total of five RBIs during the span. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues despite his rather middling average, as he has plenty of pop as a middle infielder.

Twins | Brian Dozier snaps slump

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 00:13:12 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier snapped an 0-for-13 slump at the plate with an RBI single Thursday, July 7. The Twins beat the Texas Rangers, 10-1.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier overcame a slow start to post some strong numbers in the May-June period. This slump was something every hitter goes through, and it is nowhere near the horrid slumps Giancarlo Stanton has experienced with the Miami Marlins this season. Continue to play Dozier in all formats.

Minnesota Twins SS Brian Dozier went 1-for-4 with a run scored Friday, July 1, against the Texas Rangers to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 13 games. However, his run of 11 games in a row with at least one extra-base hit came to a close.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier has been on fire lately and a bright spot in an otherwise dismal season for the Twinkies. He has emerged as a must-start across all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Twins | Brian Dozier provides the offense

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 21:41:53 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBIs Tuesday, June 28, against the Chicago White Sox in a 4-0 win. He has hit safely in 10 consecutive games, and he has four home runs over the past three games.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier is hitting .439 (18-for-41) with 10 runs scored, five homers and 11 RBIs during his impressive 10-game run. He is an obvious must-start in all seasonal fantasy leagues and DFS play while running hot.

Twins | Brian Dozier embracing the cleanup spot

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 13:57:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier extended his hitting streak to nine games against the New York Yankees on Sunday, June 26, going 2-for-4 with a two-run shot for his second homer in as many days. Dozier, who moved into the fourth spot of the order on the same day (June 17) he started the hitting streak, is batting .405 (15-for-37) with three home runs and seven RBI over that span.

Fantasy Tip: On a team note, Dozier's blast was the only one of Minnesota's six homers that wasn't of the solo variety. On an individual note, the 2015 All-Star is hitting .344 with five home runs and 15 RBI in June after batting .202 with five homers and 17 RBI combined over his first two months. Since Dozier is performing like a top-five fantasy second baseman this month, he needs to be in all lineups.

Twins | Brian Dozier on eight-game hitting streak

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 13:02:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier provided his team's only offense on Saturday, June 25, lifting a fastball from New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda into the left-field stands for his ninth homer of the season - a solo shot.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier is 13-for-33 (.394) with three doubles, two triples and two home runs during his hitting streak, which has increased his average from .227 to .248, which would be a career-high mark for him. The 29-year-old is still well off the pace he set last year in homers (28), but owners will take this version of Dozier after he spent about half of April and May batting below the Mendoza line. He needs to be started in all leagues now until he cools off.
