Padres | Matt Kemp out for Game 1

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:04:33 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 20. OF Alex Dickerson is starting in left field and hitting sixth, while 2B Ryan Schimpf moves up to the two-hole against Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson and Schimpf are both left-handed sticks with some mild pop but profile more as deep sleepers in daily formats this afternoon. Schimpf's lineup placement is more attractive, although he's hitting only .217 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 25 games. Martinez has been pitching very well of late, too.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte likes facing Arizona

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:03:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte has hit safely in each of his last seven starts against the Arizona Diamondbacks, who he faces Tuesday, July 5. His four home runs at Chase Field are more than he's hit in any other visiting park. OF Matt Kemp has 33 career home runs against the D-backs, which is second most among active players.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Solarte hot against Arizona, he's hitting .408 (20-for-49) with two home runs and eight RBI in 14 games since June 18. Solarte typically provides mediocre numbers across all categories, but while he's hot you should run with him in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres | Matt Kemp likes facing Gallardo

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:10:35 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Matt Kemp is hitting .360 (9-for-25) with two home runs, seven RBI, seven runs and three walks in 28 career plate appearances against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo, who he faces Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp has 16 home runs and 53 RBI on the year, but he's disappointed some with a .262 average and bad .278 on-base percentage. He remains valuable in all fantasy leagues for his power, though, and he's a fine addition to DFS lineups against Gallardo today.

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:13:45 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Kemp is quietly having a huge season and sits with 16 home runs and 53 RBI already. He isn't stealing bases this season, but as far as middle-round picks go, he's been a gem thus far. Remember, too, Kemp has a history of heating up in the second half. Schimpf owns a .130/.300/.217 slash line through his 30 plate appearances this season and cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy formats Sunday.
