Phillies | Jeff Francoeur draws into lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:14:40 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been drawing in against lefties frequently of late but owns an underwhelming .664 OPS against them. In fact, he is better against righties. Still, Francoeur is a viable value play at FantasyScore Thursday. Make sure to avoid Brown Thursday. The streaky outfielder owns a .182/.262/.345 slash line in August, and you should likely be aiming higher in all fantasy formats.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur remaining in Philly

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:44:04 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur was recently claimed on waivers and then pulled back by Philadelphia. He cannot be traded in August.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is having a respectable season with a .271 batting average and 12 home runs over just 265 plate appearances. He deserves attention at FantasyScore when in the lineup against favorable starting pitchers, too. Still, the 31-year-old veteran should be reserved for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues in seasonal formats.

Phillies | Domonic Brown out against southpaw

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:38:28 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Brad Hand Thursday, Aug. 20. OF Jeff Francoeur starts again in right field and his hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Philly hitters against the left-handed Hand isn't a bad idea tonight, starting with Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap), who has quietely had a pretty nice season with the Phils. Three of Francoeur's 12 homers have come off lefty hurlers in 2015.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur batting fourth vs. Jays

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:31:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is batting fourth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been sneaky good this season with a .481 slugging percentage over 249 plate appearances. He has struggled against lefties, though, with a .655 OPS. He is a risky FantasyScore play Wednesday. Brown ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been his notoriously feast-or-famine self over his past 50 at-bats, as he has four home runs and eight strikeouts with a .259 on-base percentage. Aim higher in the majority of seasonal leagues, unless you're desperate for a power injection.

Phillies | Domonic Brown sitting out

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:55:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and hitting cleanup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey's knuckler has been pretty sharp of late. However, knuckleballers can lose it quickly, and Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is having a quietly decent season for the lowly Phils. Granted, he's a sleeper pick on FantasyScore, but he's cheap and is in a favorable lineup spot tonight.

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:14:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Jeff Francoeur is in right.

Fantasy Tip: Brown ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has a .219 average against left-handed pitching, which is the likely reason why he is sitting. Francoeur ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .400 average against Dodgers starter Alex Wood, so he may be worth the FantasyScore gamble.
