Brewers | Ryan Braun remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 09:10:26 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun remains out of the lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Sunday, May 29, with OF Alex Presley playing left field for the second consecutive game. In addition, INF Hernan Perez will bat second and play third base, INF Aaron Hill will bat fifth and play second base and OF Ramon Flores will play right field and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is batting .391 with six RBI over the past two weeks, while Flores is batting .300 over that same span. Both players can be viewed as inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy contests. Hill is batting .370 with five home runs and 13 RBI over the past four weeks and merits serious consideration as a value play.

Brewers | Aaron Hill goes deep twice

Fri, 27 May 2016 21:51:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aaron Hill went 3-for-4 and hit a pair of home runs against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday, May 27. That gives Hill five home runs and 12 RBI in the month of May.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has regrouped nicely after a very slow start. He's 27-for-75 this month as part of a respectable .360-5-12 line. While Hill remains of the fringes of relevancy in mixed leagues, the veteran should be owned in NL-only formats.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett, Kirk Nieuwenhuis out

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:18:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP John Lamb Friday, May 27. 3B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and batting second, while OF Keon Broxton is in center field and hitting eighth. 3B Aaron Hill moves over to the keystone.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb doesn't strike fear into his opponents, so Perez, Hill and Broxton could return decent value in daily leagues. Perez has the most upside in the two-hole, and he's hitting .291 (16-for-55) with three home runs and eight RBI. Broxton's main asset is his speed, so he doesn't really fit the daily landscape all that well.

Brewers | Ryan Braun returns to lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:39:24 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun (back) is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, May 22, batting third. In addition, INF Hernan Perez will play third base and bat sixth, while 1B/OF Ramon Flores will start at first base and bat eighth. 1B Chris Carter and INF Aaron Hill receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Braun has been having a tremendous season and he should be re-inserted into all fantasy lineups without hesitation. On the other hand, Perez and Flores should be avoided due to the unfavorable matchup against Syndergaard.

Brewers | Ryan Braun remains out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:16:40 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, May 21. 2B Scooter Gennett will bat second and play the keystone position, with INF Aaron Hill sliding over to play third base and bat sixth. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat fifth and play center field, OF Alex Presley will bat seventh and play left field and OF Ramon Flores will bat eighth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Presley (6-for-37) and Flores (4-for-19) have both struggled at the plate over the last two weeks and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Gennett, Hill and Nieuwenhuis have fared better but are somewhat risky fantasy options versus deGrom this afternoon.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett riding pine vs. lefty

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:49:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets left-handed SP Steven Matz Friday, May 20. 3B Hernan Perez is starting at third base and is hitting second, while 3B Aaron Hill moves to the keystone and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is in a nice lineup spot, but he's really only valuable for his speed (five steals) as a deep sleeper in DFS action tonight. The veteran Hill doesn't do anything that stands out in any one category anymore, and he's hitting a very mediocre .244 (10-for-41) with only one of his four homers against southpaws in 2015. There's not much upside here in daily games.

Brewers | Two sitting for Brewers

Sun, 15 May 2016 10:16:10 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Domingo Santana and 3B Aaron Hill are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Cesar Vargas Sunday, May 15. 2B Hernan Perez will start at third base and is batting seventh, while OF Ramon Flores will start in right field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez and Flores have had some success at the plate over the last seven days, but owners on most leagues should be able to find better options to use.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out vs. lefty

Fri, 13 May 2016 15:05:15 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Christian Friedrich Friday, May 13. 3B Aaron Hill is starting at second base and 3B Hernan Perez is at third base and is hitting seventh. Also, SS Jonathan Villar moves to the second spot in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Against Friedrich, who was striking out less than seven hitters per nine innings in the minors, start your Brewers as value plays in daily fantasy games. Villar especially is a fine pick tonight with a move back up the order, mainly for his speed. Gennett is being eased back in coming off the DL yesterday, and the Brew Crew may elect to sit him often against left-handers.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy, Aaron Hill resting

Mon, 09 May 2016 11:35:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy and 3B Aaron Hill are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 9. C Martin Maldonado is behind the plate and is batting seventh, while 3B Colin Walsh is at the hot corner and is hitting sixth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado (.053) and Walsh (.108) haven't done squat at the dish this year and are in for a tough matchup in Hernandez. The chances are very low that either one of them will return value in daily games.

Brewers | Aaron Hill plates seven runs

Sun, 08 May 2016 06:00:54 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Aaron Hill went 3-for-5 with three home runs and seven RBI during Milwaukee's 13-7 win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: The monster night brings Hill to 10 runs, four home runs and 15 RBI for the season, and it also highlights how poorly he's played to start the campaign, as his numbers Saturday account for a significant chunk of his counting stats. Dating back to 2014, Hill has an underwhelming .239/.289/.363 slash line, and he is nothing more than a low-end bat in NL-only formats.
