Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will likely immediately return to the starting duties at third base when he's ready. The way he's been hitting this year, you'll want to get him right back into your starting lineups. Hitting ahead of Adrian Gonzalez in the heart of the order has made him extremely attractive to FantasyScore users.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mat Latos made his first start since being acquired from the Miami Marlins, allowing one run on four hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, Aug. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) entered the start with a 2.44 ERA away from Marlins Park, so he could benefit from the change of scenery in a big way. He could end up being a solid value play at FantasyScore the rest of the way.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) doesn't normally pack a ton of upside, but he can make a useful source of cap relief at FantasyScore when he draws a friendly matchup against a right-handed pitcher.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 17:26:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has struck out in 10 of his last 13 at-bats, and he leads the NL with 128 overall. He has just three RBI since the All-Star break and is too expensive to use at FantasyScore while he works through a slump.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:12:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is in the starting lineup for the first time this week, and his .308 average at Dodger Stadium may be part of the reason why.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:08:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting .250 this season but has a .143 mark against the Angels in the Freeway Series. View this as just a shakeup of the lineup for Sunday and set Puig aside on your FantasyScore roster.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has allowed one run in his last three appearances, but it sounds like an illness could be to blame. He still has 19 saves in 20 chances, and with 47 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings, he is one of the elite fantasy closers when healthy.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 17:55:40 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw extended his scoreless streak to 37 innings, allowing two hits and striking out seven over eight innings in a win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, Aug. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Remember when Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) was underperforming? His latest gem lowered his ERA to 2.37, and he leads the majors with 192 strikeouts. He is a must-start option at FantasyScore until further notice.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:58:35 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive day Saturday, Aug. 1, against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney. OF Enrique Hernandez will start in center field again and bat eighth.
Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are facing another left-handed starter, which explains Pederson's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) absence from the lineup. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a double Friday, and is an excellent source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:58:33 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Saturday, Aug. 1. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in left field for the second consecutive game and bat cleanup.
Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is sitting out because the Dodgers are facing their second left-handed starter in as many contests. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) went 1-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Friday, and is hitting .286 versus lefties in 42 at-bats this season. He's a good value play in FantasyScore this afternoon for owners looking for an inexpensive outfielder.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:31:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9.800, 19.6% of cap) leads the majors with a 1.41 ERA and has a 23-5 home record at Dodger Stadium. He is a must start in all fantasy formats, but Greinke is particularly deadly at home.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:15:49 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday, July 31. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in left field and bat cleanup.
Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is out of the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .282 with two home runs and five RBIs in 39 at-bats versus southpaws this season, making him a nice sleeper play in FantasyScore.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday, July 31. OF Enrique Hernandez will start in center field and bat eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) finds himself riding the pine tonight due to the fact that the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .346 with four RBIs during the month of July and can be viewed in FantasyScore as a productive means of salary cap relief.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:34:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has upside, but he is also sporting a .176/.189/.315 slash line over his past 50 games. FantasyScore players should consider him a high-risk, high-reward flier, and while seasonal owners could take a speculative dice roll on his fleeting opportunity, they'll want to keep expectations in check.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:29:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Expect Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) to miss two weeks, at the most, and it is unlikely he'll require a minor league rehab assignment. Continue to monitor the situation, and expect Alex Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to see the majority of starts at third base with Turner out.
