Padres | Alex Dickerson homers yet again

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 17:44:15 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson homered for the fourth straight day Wednesday, July 27, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He went 1-for-4 with his sixth home run of the season, which produced his lone RBI and run scored for the contest.

Fantasy Tip: If there was one drawback to this performance, it's that Dickerson wasn't also able to extend his multi-hit-game streak to four as well. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old rookie is worth adding in deep leagues, as he clearly looks like the main beneficiary with Melvin Upton Jr. being dealt out of town. Dickerson has the potential to perhaps offer some usefulness in standard formats as well.

Padres | Alex Dickerson goes deep again

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 21:18:48 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson was 2-for-5 with a three-run home run against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, July 26. It was his third straight game with a homer and the club's 24th in a row, which makes it the longest such streak since 2002 when the Texas Rangers set the MLB record by homering in 27 consecutive games.

Fantasy Tip: With Melvin Upton being traded to Toronto, Dickerson should see plenty of ABs the rest of the way. He has posted a .306-4-12 line in 62 at-bats this month to go with a pair of stolen bases. Dickerson has value in NL-only leagues and should be on your radar in deeper mixed formats.

Padres | Alex Dickerson heating up

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:52:58 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Alex Dickerson logged his second straight three-hit game Monday, July 25, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was 3-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season, which produced his two RBI and lone run scored for the contest. He also laced a double.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson doesn't really get consistent playing time at the moment, but that may change with his recent hit barrage. Plus, there's also a good chance San Diego ships out one or two of their offensive players, which could pave the way for Dickerson to get regular at-bats. He'll be on the radar if he can get into the lineup more consistently.

Padres | Melvin Upton out of lineup again

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:30:19 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 25. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and is hitting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez. Also, 1B Brett Wallace is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: That's two straight days out for Upton, so check back to see if he's 100% physically. Dickerson and Wallace both have some pop in their lumber but are far too inconsistent to be anything more than low-end deep sleeper picks for daily owners.

Padres | Melvin Upton not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:47:03 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito Sunday, July 24. OF Alex Dickerson will play left field and bat fifth. In addition, C Derek Norris is back in the lineup, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has been the subject of numerous trade rumors recently, although it does not appear as though a deal is imminent. Dickerson is batting .227 with two home runs and 10 RBI through 66 at-bats but daily fantasy owners should be able to find better options this afternoon.
