Fantasy Tip: Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .176 over the past week and .158 on the road this season. He should be ignored for FantasyScore purposes, especially against one of the game's best pitchers.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 16:16:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) faces Zack Greinke and isn't a good start on FantasyScore.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 16:16:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has the misfortune of battling Zack Greinke and isn't a good start on FantasyScore.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 16:16:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 1-for-11 (.091) against Zack Greinke and isn't a good start on FantasyScore.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 06:02:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) likely should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore since he will not see any plate appearances in the last two games. Upton had a solid 2015 season with 26 home runs and 81 RBI and should be a middle-round option no matter where he plays next season.

San Diego Padres SP James Shields will not start the team's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, Oct. 4, according to interim manager Pat Murphy. The team will use a relief pitcher to start the game.
Fantasy Tip: In 33 starts this season, Shields ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) went 13-7 with a 3.91 ERA and struck out 216 batters over 202 1/3 innings. He can be dropped in redraft fantasy leagues.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:35:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) impressed in what should be his final start of 2015. His 4.28 ERA isn't impressive, but he is striking out more than a batter per inning. He will be a free agent this offseason, but he regardless of where he lands, he has little fantasy value outside of deeper formats.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 17:15:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This is the same wrist that Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) had surgically repaired in June and he missed several games due to soreness last week. He should not be counted on in FantasyScore for the remainder of the regular season.

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (neck) left the game Wednesday, Sept. 30, against the Milwaukee Brewers due to a neck strain. Manager Pat Murphy said he did not think the injury was serious, although Upton's status for the final four games of the regular season is uncertain.
Fantasy Tip: Upton ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 16:57:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be dropped in all fantasy formats. He'll enter the 2016 season on the heels of his first 100 RBI season since 2011, and more importantly, he played over 150 games for the second consecutive year. Kemp projects to provide No. 2 OF fantasy production, but you'll likely be able to draft his as your No. 3. Check back for updates.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:52:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be replaced in all seasonal leagues, and is only worth a roster spot in deeper dynasty/keeper formats. Melvin Upton Jr. ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) projects to see an uptick in playing time over the final games, but he is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats, including at FantasyScore.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 00:41:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has recovered some footing after a couple down seasons with the Dodgers. A change of scenery has done Kemp a world of good, and he will head into the offseason as a solid outfield candidate for your fantasy team. For now, this injury should not be serious.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.
Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:36:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hasn't hit much at all this year as the backup catcher for the Friars. He's more of a defensive-minded player, so he's a low-end catcher play on FantasyScore.
Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:32:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Solarte ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is much better from the left side against right-handers this year, as he's hitting .279 (109-for-391) with 10 of his 13 home runs. Solarte is a fine pick on FantasyScore tonight despite missing a few games recently due to injury.
