Jonathan Villar drops to seventh in lineup

Jonathan Villar was dropped two seventh in the Brewers' batting order on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Milwaukee was facing a LHP, against which Villar has majorly struggled this season. It remains to be seen if Villar will continue to bat lower in the order versus righties as well, but either way this would significantly lower his fantasy value.

Jonathan Villar may drop out of leadoff spot

Brewers' manager Craig Counsell is considering dropping Jonathan Villar out of the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Impact

Villar has struggled to match the sensational season he had in 2016. This season he has just a .213 average and .285 on-base percentage compared to .285 and .369 marks last year. Watch closely how the Brewers' lineup shakes out on Sunday. Where Villar is placed may be his new home for the foreseeable future. If it's not in the leadoff spot it could hurt his fantasy production, especially in runs.

Jonathan Villar drives in a pair

Jonathan Villar went 1-for-4 with two RBI Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

It has been a tumultuous season thus far for Villar, who also struck out twice in this game. The Brewers had been experimenting with different lineup spots for Villar, but it seems that they will leave him at lead off for now. His potential for steals makes him worth starting in all roto and H2H categories leagues.

Jonathan Villar back in leadoff spot, collects three hits

Jonathan Villar returned to the leadoff spot on Sunday after batting third on Friday. Villar went 3-for-4 with a walk, run and steal in the Brewers' 13-6 loss to the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

After resting a couple of games while in San Diego and batting third on Friday, Villar was back in his normal spot batting leadoff on Sunday and responded with three hits to raise is average up to .220 on the season. Villar has not been the player he showed a year ago when he batted .285 with 62 steals. He has struggled with his plate discipline this season with a decreased walk rate (8.4%) and increased strikeout rate (28.9%) which has contributed to his decrease in production.

Jonathan Villar back in the lineup Friday, batting third

Jonathan Villar is back in the Brewers' lineup Friday and batting third for the first time this season.

Fantasy Impact

Villar had sat in the Brewers' two previous games, and with no reported injury those two games seem to have been a mental break for the struggling Villar. Villar was also moved from lead off to third for the first time this season, which is an interesting managerial decision, but not necessarily unwarranted given his .279 OBP on the year. Villar is still a fantasy must start due to his massive steals potential.
