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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
