Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is 7-for-15 with a double and two home runs against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake, who he faces Wednesday, Sept. 2. Ethier is also coming off an August in which he hit .375 with three home runs.
Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is both hot at the plate and has good career numbers against Leake, which is a good combination for FantasyScore gamers. Ethier could be an excellent value pick tonight.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw has a 1.63 ERA in his career against the San Francisco Giants, which is the lowest ERA by an active pitcher against any single opponent with a minimum of 25 starts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Fantasy Tip: Everyone already knows that Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) is legit, and he's the highest priced player on FantasyScore for Wednesday's games. Selecting him could make it tough to field a competitive lineup around him, but the Giants have also been pretty bad on the road recently, too.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a defensive-minded catcher that should be avoided on FantasyScore this evening against the tough lefty.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, Sept. 1. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth.
Fantasy Tip: Ethier and Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) are effectively platooning in left field now with Ethier facing righties and Van Slyke starting against lefties. Van Slyke hasn't stood out while facing lefties this year, and it won't get any easier against Bumgarner. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has fantasy intrigue for his stolen base potential but doesn't possess much power at all. He's only had 11 major league at-bats to this point, so he's one to avoid against the MadBum tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Seager is a high-end prospect, and potentially the best hitter currently outside the majors. Over 102 games with Class AAA Oklahoma City, he owns a .276/.329/.448 slash line with 61 runs, 27 doubles, 13 home runs and 56 RBI. At just 21, the shortstop could likely use a little more seasoning in the minor leagues. He is worth stashing in the majority of keeper/dynasty formats, though.

Fantasy Tip: Taking Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) against another ace, Madison Bumgarner, might be dicey, but you can't argue against starting Greinke on FantasyScore otherwise.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano can play all three outfield positions, but he is likely to serve in a reserve role. FantasyScore players will only want to use him if he starts and faces a favorable matchup.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed OF Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 31, due to a strained left hamstring. The team recalled C Austin Barnes from the minors to serve as a third catcher.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is expected to be sidelined at least until the end of September. Joc Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will serve as the club's regular center field for the next couple of weeks, so FantasyScore owners will likely find him to be a mid-level bargain.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will promote Ps Mike Bolsinger, Joel Peralta and Ian Thomas to the big club Tuesday, Sept. 1, when rosters expand. The team is expected to make additional moves later in the month.
Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger has started games in the past and could be used in a pinch if the team feels there is a need. FantasyScore players likely need not bother with any of them, although Bolsinger likely is the best bet to make a splash again.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:36:56 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is starting in center field and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Monday, Aug. 31. OF Enrique Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has fallen off the face of the fantasy map since early June. Over his last 270 plate appearances, he has six home runs, 15 RBI and a .165/.322/.294 slash line, which shouldn't inspire confidence for Pederson at FantasyScore Monday. Make sure to avoid Hernandez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), too.

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Enrique Hernandez is playing third base against Cubs SP Jake Arrieta, and OF Joc Pederson is in Hernandez's place.
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) may be due for a day off with a .136 mark in the last week, and the right vs. left matchup may be just what Turner needs. Sit him down for the night.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will take a seat against the lefty, Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap), and he shouldn't be in your plans at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:41:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just three hits in his last nine games, and he shouldn't be in your plans at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:37:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is hitting .309 on the year and is riding a modest five-game hitting streak. Moving up in the order will boost his value, but he isnít overly appealing at FantasyScore while facing an ace like Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap).
