Cardinals | St. Louis resting three players

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:01:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty, 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets Tuesday, July 26. 1B Jedd Gyorko will start at first base, while 3B Greg Garcia will start at third base and is batting first against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon. OF Randal Grichuk will start in right field, while OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting fifth. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham may be the most attractive option among the three new players in the starting lineup, but none of the players should be considered in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Adams not in lineup

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:10:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Matt Holliday is playing first base against Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Adams is a lefty, so he is out of the lineup against Kazmir this evening. Holliday is definitely worth the start in all formats.

Cardinals | Matt Adams delivers walk-off home run

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:46:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams was 1-for-6 against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 22, delivering a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 16th inning.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough month for Adams (.140-1-5 in 43 ABs prior to the HR), but perhaps Friday night's big blast will get him rolling again. At this stage, however, the husky first baseman is primarily an NL-only and deep mixed option.

Cardinals | Matt Adams does well in a pinch

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:32:30 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams had a pinch-hit, two-run double Monday, July 18, in a 10-2 win over the San Diego Padres. It was Adams' ninth hit in 21 pinch-hit at-bats. He has two homers and eight RBIs in pinch-hit duty.

Fantasy Tip: Adams will still see regular work in the field, but he seems to excel in this type of situation. The trouble is, being a pinch-hitter is very hard on fantasy value because you really can't play a certain player regularly. That said, Adams seems to be regaining his hitting stroke enough that he is worth a daily start on times he is in the lineup.

Cardinals | Three Cardinals regulars sitting

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:48:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams, 2B Kolten Wong and 3B Jhonny Peralta are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. OF Matt Holliday is at first base and hitting cleanup, 2B Jedd Gyorko is playing the keystone and batting seventh and INF Greg Garcia is at the hot corner and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday is typically an everyday player and is facing a fine matchup against the lefty, so he is a great addition to all fantasy lineups tonight. Gyorko has power but makes inconsistent contact, while Garcia has a good average .333 in limited at-bats but very little offensive upside. Both Gyorko and Garcia are deeper sleepers for DFS. Adams and Wong are likely being rested against the southpaw.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting three regulars

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:17:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong, 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, July 17. OF Matt Holliday will start at first base, while OF Randal Grichuk will start in left field. OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting first. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham is hitting 6-for-13 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is an attractive option for fantasy owners. Gyorko is hitting .350 with three RBI this month and could be used in daily leagues. Rosario has gone 2-for-4 since being recalled, but owners should be able to find better options.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday absent from lineup

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 15:06:36 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B/OF Matt Holliday is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler on Saturday, July 16. OF Tommy Pham will draw his fourth straight start in left field - Holliday's usual position - and lead off, while 1B Matt Adams will hit fifth and play first base.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday had an ankle issue before the break, but there has been no indication he is still being hampered with it, so this appears to be a planned day off. Pham might be worth a look in DFS with three homers and five RBI in his last three contests - including two and four, respectively, in Friday's loss. Adams ended a miserable 0-for-29 stretch right before the break, but he'll need to string something together before owners should trust him again anytime soon in fantasy.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday in, Matt Adams out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:03:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (ankle) will start at first base against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Friday, July 15. 1B Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup, while OF Tommy Pham will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday is returning from an ankle injury and should be a fine fantasy player for owners to use. Pham is hitting .304 with one home run and one RBI this month, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Cardinals | Matt Adams snaps skid

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 15:14:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a long solo home run Sunday, July 10, in a 5-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Adams had been hitless in 27 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the slump, Adams has a .265 average and a .474 slugging percentage, so his overall numbers look fairly strong. If you have taken a break from playing Adams in DFS leagues, now is the time to put him back in.
