Cubs | Kris Bryant playing right field

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:29:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is playing right field and batting third, and SS Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and batting ninth against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) receiving looks in the outfield should fuel the speculative fire for a Javier Baez recall. Baez has 45 runs, 13 home runs, 60 RBI and a .317/.382/.534 slash line over 294 plate appearances with Class AAA Iowa this season, and he is capable of player third base, second base and shortstop. At worst, seasonal owners should be keeping tabs on a potential Baez promotion, as he owns elite power potential for a middle infielder. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Thursday, and Bryant is a risky play at his hefty salary.

Cubs | Kris Bryant on a tear

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 09:32:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is hitting .435 (10-for-23) with four home runs and nine RBI in his last six games but remains without a home run in his last 25 games on the road.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't be too concerned about his recent lack of home runs on the road, but Bryant ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) does have 17 of his 20 home runs this year at the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, which means he is much more attractive on FantasyScore when playing in Chicago.

Cubs | Kris Bryant walks it off for Cubs

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:34:43 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant went 1-for-4 and hit the game-winning home run in the ninth inning during the Cubs' 2-1 win over the Cleveland Indians Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: There have been some peaks and valleys during his rookie season, but Bryant ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) now sits at 70 runs, 21 doubles, 20 home runs, 75 RBI, 12 stolen bases and a .262/.366/.481 slash line for the year. He has emerged as a second-tier third baseman, and is heating up with 10 runs, three doubles, four home runs and nine RBI over his past 10 games. FantasyScore players will want to note how much more successful he has been at home, too. Bryant entered the game Monday with a .291/.401/.617 slash line at Wrigley Field this season.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) upside was on full display Sunday, and while he has run hot and cold in his rookie year, he can carry a lineup at FantasyScore on the right night.

Cubs | Kris Bryant extends hitting streak

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 16:44:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant extended his hitting streak to 10 games in the win over the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is starting to pick it up again after a July that saw him hit only .168 (16-for-95) with 37 strikeouts. Bryant has immense power and great plate discipline, but his downfall is still that he swings and misses way too much.

Cubs | Big game for Kris Bryant

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 17:52:01 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, two runs scored and a walk in an 8-6 win over the San Francisco Giants Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is riding a modest six-game hit streak, but he hasn't had more than one hit in any game during the stretch. His value remains tied to his power, making him a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore at his price.

Cubs | Kris Bryant back in lineup

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 13:01:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (head) will start at third base against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Monday, Aug. 3, and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) left the team's last game because of a head injury but is available to play Monday. He has three hits in his last nine games but has picked up six RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using him in their lineups, but he is not a must-start player.
