Dodgers | Corey Seager goes deep twice

Sun, 15 May 2016 20:29:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Seager has been on a tear lately, recording six multi-hit performances in his last nine games and scoring eight runs and driving in seven during the same stretch. The rookie is likely to have some hot and cold patches, but his upside makes him a must-start player.

Dodgers | Three hits for Corey Seager

Sat, 14 May 2016 21:33:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager had three hits, including a solo home run in the seventh inning, as the Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-3, on Saturday, May 14. Seager's batting average jumped to .283.

Fantasy Tip: Seager had a great game hitting from the second spot, and his fantasy value will be strong as long as he hits high in the lineup. He is one of the better-hitting players in the Dodger lineup and is just beginning to show off his skills.

Dodgers | Five Dodgers regulars sitting

Mon, 09 May 2016 14:37:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Carl Crawford, C Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and SS Corey Seager are not in the starting lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Steven Matz Monday, May 9. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in left field and hitting leadoff, 2B Howie Kendrick is at the keystone and batting second, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and is hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and hitting seventh and OF Charlie Culberson is starting at shortstop and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you get all of these guys out of your daily rosters tonight against the lefty. Only Hernandez and Kendrick are really worth your attention as sleeper picks against Matz in DFS action while hitting at the top of the lineup. Thompson, Ellis and Culberson are all desperation plays. Matz is certainly worth paying for as the Dodgers trot out a less than ideal lineup.

Dodgers | Corey Seager snaps RBI drought

Wed, 04 May 2016 20:53:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks and an RBI Wednesday, May 4, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Seager snapped an eight-game slide without an RBI. He has a ton of upside and power potential and remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues and DFS play despite his recent power outage.

Dodgers | Corey Seager not playing Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:12:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays. SS Charlie Culberson is hitting ninth against Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Seager gets the night off because of the lefty matchup on the mound. Culberson has five hits in his last 21 at-bats and his fantasy value is minimal, so look elsewhere for Seager's replacement.

Dodgers | Corey Seager moved to fifth

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:19:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is batting fifth in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27, opposite Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino.

Fantasy Tip: Pretty interesting adjustment from manager Dave Roberts, as he has Yasiel Puig hitting in Seager's usual No. 2 hole. The 22-year-old sensation has put together an underwhelming .247/.303/.407 line thus far, so the intent of this move could be to take some pressure off Seager. This could also benefit his owners, as he should ideally see more runners on base in his at-bats. Puig owners get a boost, too, if he continues hitting second.

Dodgers | Corey Seager gets day off

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:03:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager (rest) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. OF Charlie Culberson will take his place at shortstop and bat eighth against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully this day off doesn't cut into Seager's momentum, as the 21-year-old sensation has logged six hits in his last four games. In any event, Culberson is someone that shouldn't even be considered for any format, possessing mostly a dead bat and nothing else. He has a career .221/.263/.315 line and his numbers thus far in 2016 are very similar to that.

Dodgers | Corey Seager gets well at Coors

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 22:34:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored, two walks and two RBIs Friday, April 22, against the Colorado Rockies, bouncing back from an ugly series in Atlanta.

Fantasy Tip: Seager will have rough patches, but he is too talented not to hit. And it's not surprising to see Coors Field serve as the elixir to his hitting ills.

Dodgers | Corey Seager hits first long fly

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 05:53:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during the Dodgers' 4-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants Saturday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: No one should have expected Seager to pick up where he left off during his huge finish in 2015 (.337/.425/.561 slash line), but he has been a little underwhelming (.267/.292/.422) to start 2016. Continue to view Seager as as a top shortstop, though, and it shouldn't surprise anyone if he finishes the season with the No. 2 fantasy return at the position. Testing the trade market for a buy-low opportunity is advised.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig enjoys rare day off

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:55:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto on Saturday, April 16. OF Trayce Thompson will occupy his spot in right field and bat eighth. 2B Chase Utley and SS Corey Seager are both back in the lineup after a day off and hitting first and second, respectively. C Yasmani Grandal will make his third appearance of the season behind the plate and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig was due a rest after playing in each of the Dodgers' first 11 games, while Utley returns to the lineup against a right-hander after the Dodgers faced southpaws the last two days. Seager should be plugged right back into all lineups, while Grandal should probably be left on benches for now after coming off the disabled list earlier this week. On a side note, DFS players will be happy to know the red-hot Enrique Hernandez, who homered twice off Madison Bumgarner on Friday, will remain in the lineup.
