Chicago Cubs C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has settled in as a leader in the clubhouse and catching Jon Lester, but Ross' fantasy value is limited, at best. With Max Scherzer starting against the Cubs Wednesday, Ross is a low-end option in all fantasy formats, and FantasyScore players should aim higher.

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. C David Ross will take his place in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only hitting .182 this season and has not recorded an RBI since April 24, so owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using him.

Chicago Cubs C David Ross is starting against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, May 16.
Fantasy Tip: With SP Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs this afternoon, it is not surprising to see Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) behind the plate. However, he doesn't offer much more than cap relief in FantasyScore, as his .192/.364/.346 slash line will attest. You can probably find better options at catcher than Ross at a comparable price.

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Monday, May 11. C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been Jon Lester's personal catcher so far this season, so make sure to remove Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) from you fantasy lineups Monday. Ross offers little more than cap relief for FantasyScore players, as the 38-year-old veteran has a career .233/.319/.429 slash line. Montero, on the other hand, is heating up at the dish with six runs, two home runs, seven RBI and a .424/.525/.667 slash line over his past 40 plate appearances. He is a solid second-tier catcher for daily contests.

Chicago Cubs C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, May 6.
Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting pitcher Jon Lester's personal catcher. Ross has limited offensive upside, and opposing pitcher Lance Lynn is stingy on the hill more times than not. Ross is a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Make sure to avoid Miguel Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Welington Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) from Chicago.

Chicago Cubs C David Ross will play against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, April 13, when SP Jon Lester will be on the mound.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be Lester's personal catcher this season, so it is no surprise to see him penciled into Monday's lineup. He is an affordable option for FantasyScore owners who normally punt the catcher position.
