Cubs' Willson Contreras: Crushes 14th homer of season Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Cardinals.

Contreras blasted his 14th homer of the year to give the Cubs a first-inning lead in a game they'd go on to lose. He's smashed five bombs over 14 July contests, and his .272 batting average to go along with a .489 slugging percentage makes him an outstanding fantasy option at the catcher position.

Cubs' Jake Arrieta: Fans six in no decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arrieta (9-7) allowed two runs on five hits while striking out six across six innings, but received no decision Friday against the Cardinals.

Arrieta showed some of his best control of the season and left the game with a 3-2 lead, but the bullpen imploded in the eighth inning, keeping him from a having a shot to earn his 10th victory of the campaign. Although he's been an inconsistent player this season, he's lowered his ERA by more than half a run since June 17, and he certainly has the potential to reward fantasy owners with a strong second half. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the White Sox.

Cubs' Kris Bryant: Will miss Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (finger) will miss Saturday's game, in addition to Friday's series opener against the Cardinals, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

Bryant is having trouble gripping the bat due to his jammed finger that he suffered during Wednesday's contest in Atlanta. There's a chance that Bryant will miss Sunday's affair as well, but manager Joe Maddon hasn't ruled out a return for that game, and stated that he could possibly play depending on his progress over the next couple days.

Cubs' Kris Bryant: May miss Cardinals series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (finger) could be out the rest of the weekend, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Although nothing is for certain at this point, it remains a possibility that manager Joe Maddon shuts Bryant down for the entirety of the series against St. Louis after he jammed his ring finger during Wednesday's contest. Bryant should still be considered day-to-day until the Cubs release more information on the third baseman, but he was replaced in the lineup by Javier Baez for Friday's opener.

Cubs' Jason Heyward: Leading off for first time in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heyward is leading off for the Cubs on Friday against the Cardinals, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

He's batting first for several reasons. Kris Bryant (finger) is not in the lineup, which forces the Cubs to shuffle things around. Also, as Muskat notes, the outfielder is 7-for-20 against Friday starter Carlos Martinez, and he's 12-for-36 with one home run and eight RBI to start July. Even if the hot bat can't make something of this tough matchup, fantasy players in relatively shallow leagues might have to start paying attention to him, at least as a rental.
