Cardinals | Matt Adams not in lineup

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:10:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Matt Holliday is playing first base against Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Adams is a lefty, so he is out of the lineup against Kazmir this evening. Holliday is definitely worth the start in all formats.

Cardinals | Wholesale changes for Cards

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:23:47 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has cooled a bit, but he's still hitting .314. He has upside at leadoff against Kenta Maeda. Hazelbaker and Rosario don't offer much for DFS purposes.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday has night to forget

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 22:28:08 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday went 0-for-7 with two strikeouts against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: A lifetime .304 hitter, Holliday's 0-for-7 showing dropped his 2016 average to .238, and it remains a sore spot amid otherwise strong power numbers. The 36-year-old is still a middling starting option in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday returns to action

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:59:28 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (nose) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday had a scary moment Thursday when a pitch hit his nose and upper lip, causing him to gush blood. But he's back in there and should remain in all starting lineups. He's hitting just .244 but has 17 long balls and 55 RBI and should remain a key cog for fantasy owners in the second half.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday's nose not fractured

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 08:58:13 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (nose) didn't suffer a fractured nose after being hit by a pitch Thursday, July 21, but he has a facial abrasion by his nose and upper lip. Manager Mike Matheny said Holliday didn't have concussion symptoms, either. He's listed as day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday appears to have dodged a bullet here, but don't be surprised if the Cardinals hold him out for a game or two to be safe. Plan for that with your lineups. Holliday has kind of flown under the radar with a .244 average, 17 home runs and 55 RBI, but a low BABIP in the first half suggests he'll be much better from here on out, and he continues to make plenty of hard contact.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday leaves game after HBP

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 19:11:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday (nose) got hit in the nose by a 95 mph fastball from San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Thursday, July 21. He tried to stay in the game but was ultimately taken out.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds scary, especially since the pitch was thrown by someone who throws as hard as Cashner does, but fortunately, it appears Holliday may have escaped injury here. Regardless, more should be known about Holliday's status soon, so check back later for an update.

Cardinals | Handful of Cardinals resting in Game 2

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 14:42:52 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Aledmys Diaz, C Yadier Molina and OFs Randal Grichuk and Matt Holliday are all out of the starting lineup in Game 2 against the San Diego Padres Wednesday, July 20. SS Greg Garcia is starting at the 6 and hitting leadoff, OF Tommy Pham is starting in center field and hitting fifth, OF Jeremy Hazelbaker is in left field and batting sixth and C Alberto Rosario is doing the catching and batting eighth against Padres SP Paul Clemens.

Fantasy Tip: Against Clemens, who is making his first start of the year, all Cardinals hitters are worth considering as value picks in DFS action. However, the replacements are more of deep sleepers to help you save salary cap space if you're feeling bold. Rosario should probably still be ignored hitting down in the order.

Cardinals | Three Cardinals regulars sitting

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:48:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Adams, 2B Kolten Wong and 3B Jhonny Peralta are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. OF Matt Holliday is at first base and hitting cleanup, 2B Jedd Gyorko is playing the keystone and batting seventh and INF Greg Garcia is at the hot corner and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday is typically an everyday player and is facing a fine matchup against the lefty, so he is a great addition to all fantasy lineups tonight. Gyorko has power but makes inconsistent contact, while Garcia has a good average .333 in limited at-bats but very little offensive upside. Both Gyorko and Garcia are deeper sleepers for DFS. Adams and Wong are likely being rested against the southpaw.

Cardinals | Matt Holliday shines in cleanup spot

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 16:28:01 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday hit cleanup for the first time this season, going 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in a 6-3 loss to the Miami Marlins Sunday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Holliday's average is below his typical standards, but he still has enough pop in his back to start in most mixed formats. A permanent move to the cleanup spot should only help his value.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting three regulars

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:17:18 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong, 1B Matt Adams and C Yadier Molina are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, July 17. OF Matt Holliday will start at first base, while OF Randal Grichuk will start in left field. OF Tommy Pham will start in center field and is batting first. 2B Jedd Gyorko will start at second base and is batting seventh. C Alberto Rosario will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pham is hitting 6-for-13 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and is an attractive option for fantasy owners. Gyorko is hitting .350 with three RBI this month and could be used in daily leagues. Rosario has gone 2-for-4 since being recalled, but owners should be able to find better options.
