Cubs | Ben Zobrist, Jason Heyward out

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 11:27:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist and OF Jason Heyward are not in the starting lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Steven Matz Monday, July 18. 2B Javier Baez is starting at second base and hitting leadoff again, while OF Matt Szczur is starting in right field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist is out for the second straight day against a lefty, but Joe Maddon wants to give him extra rest following the All-Star break. Baez is a nice power-speed guy that has added value in daily formats today against the lefty. He's batting .353 with four of his nine homers off southpaws. Szczur has potential, too, but is more of a sleeper candidate in DFS.

Cubs | Ben Zobrist, Miguel Montero out

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:40:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist and C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 17. SS Javier Baez will start at second base and is batting first. 3B Kris Bryant will start at third base, while C Willson Contreras will start at catcher. OF Matt Szczur will start in left field and is batting seventh. OF Albert Almora is starting in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Szczur has at least one hit in each of his last three games and can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Almora is hitting only .217 this month and probably can be avoided by most fantasy owners.
