Latest Update B.J. Upton is not in the Braves starting lineup on Saturday. Sat Sep, 13, 11:18 AM
A phenomenal athlete, he has a lanky frame with quick wrists, a great throwing arm and supreme speed. Is an elite center-fielder, above-average base-stealer, decent home-run hitter and patient at the dish.
Flaws: : Has holes in his swing and takes a huge cut, so he piles up tremendous amounts of strikeouts. Can suffer from mental lapses in the field. Generally lacks polish. Can also be a little temperamental.
Upton has, once again, been an absolute disaster. He's hitting .200 in September and .207 on the season. It's to the point where Emilio Bonifacio is seeing more playing time and it's actually stranger to see Upton's name in someone's lineup than it is to see it on the waiver wire. Steer clear of him. He offers you nothing.Analyst: Howard Bender
Upton's 11th long ball on the year came on Washington starter Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning. Upton also totaled his 34rd run batted in on the year. Upton should not be started in any fantasy format as he is not contributing enough in any category to even be mentioned for a starting spot.Analyst: Colby Conway
So long as he continues to not produce, the Braves will continue to not play him. For the second day in a row, Emilio Bonifacio will man center field. At this point Upton shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy team. Analyst: Howard Bender
The Braves tend to keep him out of the lineup at least once a series, and for good reason, as his slash line is a brutal .206/.284/.327. The days of B.J. being a reliable fantasy contributor are over.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
