Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler allowed six runs - five earned - and eight hits with two walks and three strikeouts over five innings in a loss Monday, July 18, against the Cincinnati Reds.
Fantasy Tip: Wisler has yielded 12 runs and 16 hits, including five homers, in 10 innings over his past two outings. He is 4-9 with a 4.76 ERA and 1.32 WHIP and he is only worth keeping in the deepest of NL-only fantasy formats at this point.

Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler allowed three earned runs in six innings of work Sunday, July 3, and he struck out six in a 5-2 loss. Wisler has 15 strikeouts in his last two outings.
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Wisler also has a 3-8 overall record. This is more a problem of getting no run support, as the Braves have one of the worst offenses in baseball. What positive stats Wisler has are erased by that. Stay away until the Braves can give him some more help to win.

Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (ankle) is not in the lineup Sunday, July 3, against the Atlanta Braves. 1B Chris Johnson is batting seventh against Braves SP Matt Wisler.
Fantasy Tip: Bour is considered day-to-day with an ankle injury suffered on Saturday. Johnson has a .240-3-11 line with four hits in his last three games. He might be worth a low-flyer start in DFS leagues if you want to save a bit of money.

Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler allowed two earned runs, six hits and two walks while posting a career-high nine strikeouts in a no-decision Tuesday, June 28, against the Cleveland Indians. He threw 67 of his 98 pitches for strikes in a quality start.
Fantasy Tip: Wisler has been sharp over his past three outings, all quality starts. He also has nine quality starts over his past 11 outings dating back to April 26. Run support is always a problem, but he is a decent NL-only play in deeper leagues and a DFS bargain when the matchup is favorable.

Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler has a 7.59 ERA in his last four starts in 21 1/3 innings and opponents have a .392 on-base percentage with 31 hits (seven home runs), and he's walked nine batters and struck out 13 in that span. He had a 3.16 ERA and opponents had a .265 on-base percentage against him in his first 11 games (10 starts).
Fantasy Tip: Wisler has limited major league experience in just his second season, so the ups and downs should be expected from his fantasy owners. He's one of Atlanta's more promising arms in the rotation, though, and he's improved his BB/9 (2.6) and K/9 (6.1) from last season. Facing the Indians Tuesday, you should be very careful using Wisler in your starting lineups tomorrow evening after the way he's pitched of late.

Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler registered a quality start Thursday, June 16, opposite the Cincinnati Reds, tossing 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball, allowing eight hits, two walks and striking out five.
Fantasy Tip: This was an important outing for the 23-year-old, as he entered today's assignment having lost his last four starts, while surrendering five or more runs in each of the last two. However, he was able to get back on track in this one to pick up his third win of the year. Even so, owners should wait until he shows more consistency again before considering his services in most leagues.

Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler allowed five runs on seven hits over four innings in a loss to the Chicago Cubs Saturday, June 11, and he has allowed six home runs and 13 runs over his last two starts.
Fantasy Tip: Wisler has hit a wall after a strong month of May. Hang on to him in NL-only formats, but feel free to shop around for better options in mixed leagues.
