Jason Kipnis with two RBI Tuesday

Jason Kipnis went 1-for-4 Tuesday against the Cubs, hitting a two out, two-run single in the fourth inning to give the Indians a 7-0 lead. They eventually won 10-1.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis has been terrible this year, getting dropped in the order in the process. Now hitting .178 with a .528 OPS, Kipnis is not a useful fantasy asset right now.

Jason Kipnis dropped to eighth in lineup

Jason Kipnis went 1-for-4 in Wednesday’s 6-0 win against the Tigers, hitting a run-scoring double. More importantly for fantasy owners, he was dropped to the 8-hole, sandwiched between Erik Gonzalez and Roberto Perez.

Fantasy Impact

This lineup switch obviously negatively impacts Kipnis and his fantasy owners. He is hitting very poorly this year (.172/.260/.248 prior to today’s game), so the drop in the lineup was inevitable. Kipnis is droppable in most leagues, if he is even owned in your league at this point.

Jason Kipnis hitless Saturday

Jason Kipnis went 0-for-3 with a walk on Saturday against the Royals. He did manage to take a walk in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis is in a season-long funk, hitting just .173 with a homer. He is currently in a 1-for-17 slump. He does have an unlucky .221 BABIP, so expect some positive regression. However, you can still likely find better players to put on your roster on waivers.

Jason Kipnis strikes out twice Sunday

Jason Kipnis was 0-for-3 Sunday against the Yankees with two strikeouts. He managed to record an RBI on a passed ball by Gary Sanchez. The Indians would lose on a walkoff homer by rookie phenom Gleyber Torres.

Fantasy Impact

After having an incredible start to the week, Kipnis has cooled off once again. He is in an 0-for-12 slide in his last three games. He currently sports a .184/.258/.278 triple-slash. Feel free to pick the veteran up off your waiver wire if you think he can positively regress, based on his unlucky .242 BABIP and .090 ISO.

Jason Kipnis on a roll, collects three RBI Wednesday

Jason Kipnis went 2-for-4 Wednesday, stroking a double, with three RBI and two runs scored. He also was hit by a pitch. The Indians pummeled the Rangers, 12-4.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis is officially rolling, hitting over .290 with ten RBI over the past eight days. His secondary stats still are not great (24% K rate, .071 ISO), However, if he can stay this hot, those stats should change quickly.
