Michael Brantley Has Gone Cold At The Plate

Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley went 0-for-4 in the Astros 7-6 loss to the Giants in extra innings on Tuesday. After a scorching start to his season, Brantley has gone ice cold over the last six games. He has smacked a couple of doubles over the last few games but is only 2-for-24 during that span. Brantley typically is one of the most reliable performers in fantasy so this lull at the dish should not last too much longer. But it would be wise to stray away from deploying Brantley into DFS lineups for a few more games.

Michael Brantley Rejoins Lineup Thursday After Absence

Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley is back among the starting nine for Thursday's contest versus the D-backs and right-hander Zac Gallen. Brantley has been dealing with a quad ailment and will return to the lineup as the designated hitter Thursday, a role that he is reprising for the fifth time this season. He has collected a hit in each of the first eight games that he has started this season, making him an excellent cash play in DFS, especially when considering his price tag. Brantleys .489 wOBA ranks in the top three percent of the league, while his .438 average and .514 on-base percentage lead the Majors. In short, when healthy, Brantley should be rostered in all season-long formats.

Michael Brantley Will DH Thursday

Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley (quad) is expected to DH in the team's series finale versus the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Manager Dusty Baker initially wanted to keep the veteran out until Friday, but apparently changed his mind after the club's 14-7 loss on Wednesday. Brantley has missed the last two games with a quad injury after starting the season off hitting .438 with a homer, eight runs, and six RBI. Expect Brantley to slide back into the meat and potatoes of the Astros order, where he'll continue to rack up counting stats and a high batting average for the remainder of the season.
