Dodgers | Chase Utley sitting vs. Tampa

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:08:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. SS Chris Taylor is starting at second base and batting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Utley rarely plays against left-handed pitchers, which slightly curbs his upside. Leading off has helped him pound the runs column, and he currently sits with an impressive 50. He's worth starting in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Taylor is receiving limited playing time and is nothing more than a flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Corey Seager out third straight day

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:55:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager (illness) is out of the lineup Thursday, July 21, for the third straight day due to a stomach virus. SS Chris Taylor is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is hitting .286, but he faces a tough matchup against Stephen Strasburg. He doesn't have enough upside to warrant a start in the bad matchup.

Dodgers | No Chase Utley vs. Nationals

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:18:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. INF Chris Taylor draws into the lineup at second base and is batting second against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Utley remains a low-end starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and with 46 runs, 30 RBI and a .266/.347/.389 slash line, he could do in a pinch in deep mixed formats. However, the best years are clearly behind the 37-year-old veteran. Taylor is 10-for-31 with a .613 slugging percentage this season, and he could be worth a look as a low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Corey Seager on the bench

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:37:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Reynaldo Lopez Tuesday, July 19. SS Chris Taylor will start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has recorded five hits and six RBI over the last two games and can be considered as a deep sleeper in daily fantasy leagues but does lose some value since he is hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez gets a day off

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:05:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray on Sunday, July 17. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will replace him in the field and bat cleanup. 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Andrew Toles are also not starting, and will be replaced by INF Chris Taylor (hitting sixth), C A.J. Ellis (seventh) and newly promoted rookie SS/OF Zach Walters (eighth), respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez remains a very good hitter (.287), but he has only homered twice and driven in 17 runs since the end of May, so he can be benched in most fantasy leagues. The same can be said for Utley, while Grandal emerged as a back-end starting catcher option with a strong first-half finish. None of the today's four replacements need to be considered outside of deep mixed or NL-only formats.
