Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki not in lineup

Fri, 06 May 2016 13:31:46 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 2B Ryan Goins is starting at shortstop and is hitting eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SS Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Tulo is really struggling. He has a slash line of .163/.267/.317 and 33 strikeouts in 104 at-bats. The lone positive are his five homers and 13 RBI, but this has been ugly. It's concerning that he's making far less contact than his career norms, and buying low is a risky proposition considering his injury history. Goins isn't much better with a .153 average. He shouldn't be started in any leagues.

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ remains undefeated

Thu, 05 May 2016 18:55:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ (4-0) allowed one run on five hits over seven innings in a victory over the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 5, with one walk and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Happ has tossed quality starts in each of his six outings this year and should be viewed as a solid starting option in most fantasy formats. His next start will come Tuesday, May 10, against the San Francisco Giants.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion drives in six Thursday

Thu, 05 May 2016 18:02:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays DH Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run, six RBI and two runs scored in a victory over the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion has two home runs and eight RBI over his last two contests and now leads the Jays with 24 RBI through 30 games. He is a must-start in daily fantasy contests while he's on fire offensively.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders resting vs. southpaw

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:01:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Thursday, May 5. OF Ezequiel Carrera is starting in left field and hitting ninth. Also, OF Kevin Pillar moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera is more of a defensive player and should be ignored in all fantasy formats. Pillar's value takes a significant jump moving up to the leadoff spot in a potent offense. Consider him a sleeper selection in DFS action this evening.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki continues to scuffle

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:46:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki was hitless in four at-bats Wednesday, May 4, against the Texas Rangers to drop his average to a dismal .160.

Fantasy Tip: Tulo has just one extra-base hit over the past 10 games, and his batting average hasn't been over the Mendoza line since he went 1-for-3 on opening day. Despite the struggles, you have to stick with him if you have gone this long with him. Don't compound matters by dropping him and having him re-gain his form on another fantasy owner's roster, and certainly don't trade him while his value is at its nadir.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion snaps RBI drought

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:46:15 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs Wednesday, May 4, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion entered the game with just one RBI over his past six outings, and it was just his second multi-RBI performance in the past 13 games. Despite the slight hiccup and his paltry .245 batting average, he remains a must-start fantasy option across all formats for his power potential. The production could come in bunches very shortly.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson has awful game

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:45:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts Wednesday, May 4, against the Texas Rangers to lower his average to .282, worst since the first week of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is Donaldson faces a left-handed starter Thursday, so he figures to rebound. He is 10-for-24 (.417) with two doubles, a triple, three homers, six RBIs and a 1.491 OPS against southpaws this season. So fantasy owners and DFS players, keep that in mind when setting lineups Thursday.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez goes seven strong

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:44:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez allowed three earned runs, seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Wednesday, May 4, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has turned in quality starts in five of his six outings, and has a solid 2.82 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP while he has amassed 34 strikeouts over 38 1/3 innings. Sanchez is an unheralded DFS option, and a solid fantasy play in both seasonal AL-only leagues and most mixed formats right now.

Blue Jays | Another disappointment for Joey Bats

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:22:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista was hitless in five at-bats with a strikeouts Tuesday, May 3, against the Texas Rangers as his batting average slipped to .219.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista is struggling mightily at the dish, going 0-12 for with six strikeouts in three games in May, and 2-for-25 (.080) since April 25 to drop his average from .268 to .219 just since May 25. Despite the awful stretch, Bautista has the ability to pile up extra-base hits and RBIs in bunches, and he'll even this out. Fantasy owners just need to be patient, although DFS players can avoid him until he gets into a groove.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak powers up

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:21:33 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak went 3-for-5 with his first two home runs of the season and three RBIs Tuesday, May 3, against the Texas Rangers, providing all of the offense in a 3-1 win.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak entered the game with no homers and just four RBIs, so this game was a bit of an anomaly. Don't get too carried away and add him in mixed fantasy formats just yet. However, he isn't a bad reserve in AL-only fantasy leagues for his power potential.

Blue Jays | Toronto using platoon at 2B

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:50:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2Bs Darwin Barney and Ryan Goins will platoon at second base, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player can do much with the lumber, so this likely kills any small fantasy value that Goins might've had in deep AL-only leagues. Barney and Goins are just keeping the seat warm at the keystone for when Devon Travis is healthy enough to return. Travis should be stashed in all leagues.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin's neck an issue

Tue, 03 May 2016 08:15:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (neck) is affected at the plate by his neck ailment, according to manager John Gibbons. Martin has struck out 31 times in 64 at-bats, which is double his strikeout rate from last season.

Fantasy Tip: Martin should be avoided in DFS. If you have the luxury, bench him in traditional formats until things start going better. He might require a cortisone injection and have to rest a couple of days.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey turns in quality start

Mon, 02 May 2016 20:26:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed just one earned run, six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision Monday, May 2, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey has turned it around after a rough start to the season, posting six or more innings in each of his past three outings - including his first two quality starts. Slowly, but surely, Dickey is piecing it together for his nervous fantasy owners.

Blue Jays | Joey Bats mired in a tailspin

Mon, 02 May 2016 20:20:19 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts Monday, May 2, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista is hitless in seven at-bats with five strikeouts in two games since the calendar changed to May, and he is just 2-for-20 (.100) with nine strikeouts over the past six games to drop his average from .268 to .231. Despite the rough patch fantasy owners need to stick it out and ride through the storm. He'll straighten it out.

Blue Jays | Three-hit game for Kevin Pillar

Mon, 02 May 2016 20:19:49 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar went 3-for-4 with a double and run scored Monday, May 2, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Pillar has flourished out of the leadoff spot, so fantasy owners can expect not to see him there again. He has raised his average to .290 and has re-emerged as a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and DFS play.
