Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) went 1-for-3 in his return to the lineup Monday, July 18, against the Atlanta Braves. He missed the past two games due to a strained right calf. Phillips has now hit safely in seven straight games.
Fantasy Tip: Phillips has raised his average from .249 to .261 as a result of the seven-game run. He remains a solid fantasy option despite the fact he hasn't launched a home run since May 7.

Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) is starting at second base and batting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Monday, July 18.
Fantasy Tip: Phillips is having a disappointing season at a deep fantasy position with just 39 runs, six home runs, 34 RBI, five stolen bases and a .260/.299/.372 slash line. He's a fringe starter in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, but he likely won't move the needle enough for a contending virtual club.

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is back in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Sunday, July 17, batting eighth. 2B Brandon Phillips (calf) remains out of the lineup, with INF/OF Jose Peraza batting seventh and playing the keystone position.
Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is batting .393 with one home run and seven RBI through 28 July at-bats, making him worthy of consideration as a value play in daily fantasy contests. Peraza has some value in NL-only fantasy leagues because of his speed but isn't a great option in DFS. He is 13-for-13 through 34 career MLB games on stolen-base attempts.
