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.

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).
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:32:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been sitting against lefties lately, so it is no surprise he isn't facing Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap). Look elsewhere for a catcher at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:27:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting just .224 on the year, and he doesn't offer much upside at FantasyScore against Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap).
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:16:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peraza has just one hit in six at-bats this year and isn't a viable fantasy option.

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig's (hamstring) injury will keep him out "more than 10 days," according to manager Don Mattingly. Mattingly is hopeful the hamstring is not as badly injured as it was earlier in the season.
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) missed five weeks earlier in the season with an injury to the same hamstring, so the injury clearly is a significant concern and could potentially end his season. At this point, there is no indication that will be the case, though. Continue to check back for updates on Puig, and to reiterate past tips, Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is the playing-time beneficiary of Puig's injury.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:08:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This isn't surprising news. Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, especially since we don't know his return timeline yet. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) grabs extra value while Puig's out, and Crawford isn't a bad add in deep mixed leagues. Continue to check back for more details on Puig's injury.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) pulled up abruptly after running out an infield single Thursday, Aug. 27, and it is believed he aggravated his right hamstring injury. Check back for updates, and while it isn't time to make hasty roster decisions, looking for potential replacements isn't a bad idea. Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) stands as a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday, and he projects to see an uptick in playing time for the duration of Puig's absence.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:47:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) fouled a ball off his knee Thursday, Aug. 27, and was deemed day-to-day. It isn't surprising to see him in the lineup Friday, but he might not be 100%. He is a risky option at FantasyScore given his high price. It is a good sign for Gonzalez's seasonal owners, though.

Fantasy Tip: CL Kenley Jansen had pitched in each of the team's previous three games, so it appears he was just getting the day off. This was Johnson's first save with the Dodgers, after he notched nine with Atlanta earlier this season.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:24:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With the win, Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.61 and showed why he is a must-start in FantasyScore every time he takes the mound. He will make his next start against Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:33:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) may have aggravated his right hamstring injury. You'll want to check back for updates before making any hasty roster decisions, as it might have just been a precautionary exit. Adrian Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is already dealing with a knee injury and is day-to-day, so there could be a new-look lineup for the Dodgers over the next few days. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Andre Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) are likely to see more playing time, if Puig's injury is serious.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:44:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Be ready to be without Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) for a game or two, and make sure to check back for updates. He is having another reliable season with 24 home runs, 74 RBI with a .288/.361/.511 slash line. The Dodgers have a few options to fill in at first base, but Scott Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) projects to fill in while Gonzalez is out.
