    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was 2-for-4 with a RBI in the loss against the Pirates on Friday.
    Insight: Lucroy drove in Ryan Braun during the first inning to give the Brewers a much needed early lead in the most important series of the season. The Milwaukee bullpen, however, blew its second straight lead in the 8th as the Brewers fell to 4 1/2 back in the wild card race. Lucroy is still having an MVP type season, hitting .305 with 13 home runs and 68 RBI.
     
    9/14/2014 6:46:00 PM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with two RBI as the Brewers got a much needed victory against the Reds, 9-2, on Sunday.
    Insight: All three of his hits were singles, including a two-run single in the fourth. Lucroy continues his strong month, batting .353 with seven RBI in September. He is hitting .303/.371/.477 this year.
     
    9/14/2014 11:29:00 AM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is a lifetime .391 (9-for-23) hitter against Reds pitcher Mike Leake.
    Insight: The Brewers have really struggled, but Lucroy has remained pretty consistent. He is hitting .319/.407/.426 this month. Lucroy is a must-start on Sunday.
     
    9/6/2014 10:22:00 PM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 with a walk and run scored on Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.
    Insight: The Brewers may be struggling big time, but Lucroy has been just fine. Lucroy has a nine-game hitting streak and is batting .333 with five doubles over that span. The catcher has had a great season, hitting .301 with 13 home runs, 62 RBI and .850 OPS.
     
    8/15/2014 1:49:00 PM
    Description: Its a very small sample size, but Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is 5-for-6 versus Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke.
    Insight: Lucroy was just 2-for-16 in the four-game series with the Cubs, but he has been a consistent force from the catching position all season for fantasy owners, batting .303 with 12 homers, 53 RBI, 57 runs and an .852 OPS.
     
    8/8/2014 6:19:00 PM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is not in the lineup Friday due to a sore hamstring, according to Adam McCalvy of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
    Insight: Lucroy has been a consistent force from the catching position all season for fantasy owners, hitting .307 with 12 homers, 53 RBI, 55 runs and an .867 OPS. The Brewers say the absence is precautionary.
     
    7/7/2014 11:20:00 AM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is 6-for-11 with a 1.492 OPS versus Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels.
    Insight: Lucroy has been fantasy's best catcher this season and made the All-Star team for the first time. He's batting .329 with nine homers, 44 RBI, 42 runs and a .913 OPS to lead the Brewers to the best record in the National League.
     
    Hot7/4/2014 10:26:00 PM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy hit his ninth homer of the season Friday against the Reds.
    Insight: Lucroy is second in the NL to Troy Tulowitzki with a .333 batting average. He's been fantasy's best catcher this season and will make the All-Star team for the first time.
     
    Hot6/28/2014 8:33:00 PM

    Hot6/19/2014 1:18:00 PM
    Description: The only one who can stop Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy is his manager Ron Roenicke, who will sit him on Thursday.
    Insight: Just a routine day off after a night game. Lucroy (.341, 8 HR, 37 RBI, 35 runs, 3 SB) is the top-rated catcher in Yahoo fantasy leagues, ahead of the likes of Yadier Molina, Buster Posey and Evan Gattis.
     
    Hot6/18/2014 9:24:00 AM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy blasted two homers Tuesday in a win over Arizona.
    Insight: There's just no stopping this guy. Though Yadier Molina is more of a household name, Lucroy (.341, 8 HR, 37 RBI) deserves to be the National League's starting catcher at next month's All-Star Game in Minnesota.
     
    Hot6/11/2014 10:30:00 PM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy (3-for-5, two doubles) had another big night Wednesday against the Mets.
    Insight: Lucroy (.341, 4 HR, 28 RBI) is having a monster season and he seems to be getting better by the month. He'll take a seven-game hitting streak into Thursday's series finale.
     
    Hot6/8/2014 5:53:00 PM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy had a nice game Sunday against Pittsburgh.
    Insight: Two of Lucroy's three hits Sunday went for extra bases. He's gone 9-for-20 over his last five games to raise his batting average from .324 to .335. That's good for second-best in the National League.
     
    6/2/2014 10:32:00 PM
    Description: Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy stroked three hits Monday in a win against the Twins.
    Insight: Lucroy is having another impressive season, leading all big league catchers with a .325 batting average and a .483 slugging percentage. Don't be surprised if he gets invited to next month's All-Star Game in Minnesota.
     
    5/27/2014 4:28:00 PM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy will make a fourth start at first base on Tuesday.
    Insight: He should soon become eligible at 1B, though his value will always be as a catcher-eligible option. He's batting .330 with two homers, 21 RBI and 20 runs scored.
     
    Hot5/25/2014 8:23:00 PM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy has batted .407 in his last 16 games.

    5/22/2014 10:21:00 AM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy is a career 0-for-10 against Braves right-hander Aaron Harang.
    Insight: Despite hitting just two homers this season, Lucroy is a viable top-10 fantasy catcher with a .848 OPS, 15 doubles, 17 runs and 16 RBI. Thursday, however, is a matchup to avoid.
     
    5/19/2014 3:38:00 PM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy will make a second start at first base on Monday night.
    Insight: Martin Maldonado (.333 2 HR, 4 RBI in 10 games) will be behind the plate. Despite hitting just two homers this season, Lucroy is a viable top-10 fantasy catcher with a .794 OPS, 16 runs and 16 RBI. He would probably not be a fantasy-worthy first baseman.
     
    5/16/2014 9:46:00 AM
    Description: Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy could be a candidate for the afternoon off as he's just 1-for-15 (.067) with seven strikeouts against Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija.
    Insight: Despite hitting just two homers this season, Lucroy is a viable top-10 fantasy catcher with an .815 OPS, 15 runs and 15 RBI. Friday, however is an unfavorable matchup.

    Insight: Despite hitting just two homers this season, Lucroy has an .809 OPS because he's batted .298 with 12 doubles and 13 walks.
