Jon Lester picks up seventh win Monday

Jon Lester allowed two runs (zero earned) on five hits over six innings in the Cubs' 8-3 win over the Braves on Monday. He walked none and struck out seven while improving to 7-5.

Fantasy Impact

Lester is beginning to recover from his rough stretch, and lucky for him a pair of errors wiped the runs scored from his ERA. He now has a 3.83 mark on the year along with a 4.21 FIP and 4.56 K/BB ratio. He's trustable in most matchups, and only needs to be sat against the best lineups in hitter-friendly ballparks. His next start comes Sunday in Cincinnati.

Jon Lester picks up sixth win Wednesday

Jon Lester allowed three runs on seven hits over 5 2/3rd innings in the Cubs' 7-3 win over the White Sox on Wednesday. He walked one and struck out six while improving to 6-5.

Fantasy Impact

This was something of a bounce back for Lester, who has been getting hammered as of late. Still, he failed to notch a quality start for the third straight outing. His next start comes Monday at Atlanta.

Jon Lester tagged for six runs in loss Thursday

Jon Lester allowed six runs on nine hits over five innings in the Cubs' 7-3 loss to the Dodgers on Thursday. He walked one and struck out seven while falling to 5-5.

Fantasy Impact

Regression has been on its way for Lester for a while now, and he's been getting smashed over the last month. Lester has allowed at least four earned runs in five of his last six starts and has a 7.59 ERA over that stretch. He's hard to trust right now, but gets a good chance to turn things around next time out. He takes on the White Sox at home on Wednesday.

Jon Lester picks up fifth win Saturday

Jon Lester allowed four runs on five hits over six innings in the Cubs' 9-4 win over the Cardinals on Saturday. He walked two and struck out six while improving to 5-4.

Fantasy Impact

Lester was fortunate in two ways in this game. First, his offense gave him nine runs of support. Second, he got away with serving up two home runs and only allowing four runs. His next start won't be any easier, taking on the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Jon Lester allows one run in win Monday

Jon Lester allowed one run on four hits over seven innings in the Cubs' 8-1 win over the Angels on Monday. He walked one and struck out six while improving to 4-4.

Fantasy Impact

This was a nice bounce back for Lester, who allowed seven earned runs against Houston last time out. The veteran lefty now has a 3.32 ERA and 4:1 K:BB ratio on the year. His next start comes Saturday vs. St. Louis.
