Description: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday left Saturday's game after a collision with Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez.
Insight: Holliday stayed in the game for four innings after the incident, so we think it's likely just a precaution. His production in 2014 is significantly lower than what we have come to expect from the 11-year veteran. He's hitting just .270 with seven homers and 50 RBI this season.

Description: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday went 3-for-3 with a homer and two runs Tuesday against the Yankees and is 11-for-26 (.423) with three doubles and a homer against Wednesday's starter, Hiroki Kuroda.
Insight: Holliday's home run Tuesday was his first since April 28 and third of the season. He has similar K, BB, FB, chase and z-contact rates as he did last year, when he hit 22 homers, but his HR/FB is a career-low 5.9 percent. Holliday's average fly-ball distance is down five feet from last season and 21 feet from 2012. However, he's a good play Wednesday.

Insight: Although Holliday's power has disappeared through the first quarter of the season as he has produced just two homers and a .731 OPS, the favorable amtchup and a nice wind blowing out to left field makes him a viable fantasy option on Tuesday.

Insight: Holliday is off to a slow start, batting just .216, but a favorable matchup and the strong wind blowing out to left field (15-20 mph) makes him a viable option on Saturday.
 
4/6/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Cardinals LF Matt Holliday has gone 8-for-20 (.400) with two homers against Pirates starter Edinson Volquez.
Insight: Volquez is making his first start for the Pirates after posting a 5.71 ERA in 170 1/3 frames for the Padres and Dodgers last season and serving up 15 earned runs in 14 innings this spring. Make sure Holliday is one of your selections on Sunday despite his .238 start.

10/24/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday is hitless in seven career at-bats versus Boston Game 2 starter John Lackey.
Insight: Holliday homered in Game 1 to prevent his Cardinals getting shut out, and has seven hits in his last four postseason games, but he's batting just .265 over the 12 games of the 2013 postseason. Add in a bar matchup versus Lackey and Holliday should probably be avoided on Thursday.
