Sunday Fantasy Pickup: Justin Turner, 3B, Dodgers

Sometimes it takes a player a while to get going, and that's exactly the case with Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner. Turner, who didn't hit his first home run of the season until May 7, has now clubbed six homers during his current two-week hot stretch. Since June 7, Turner has pumped up his batting average by 23 points while amassing eight runs and 13 RBI. More importantly, Turner shows a respectable slash line now (.248/.335/.420), getting his OBP and SLG in line with his career totals.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has shown confidence in Turner all season long, batting him third in the batting order, so anyone giving the veteran a whirl in their DFS lineups can at least be comfortable knowing Turner has plenty of opportunity to be a run-driving force. With Turner still quite shy of his career .279 AVG, you have to figure there's plenty of noise to be made with his bat moving forward. The 31-year old Turner deserves a shot with most fantasy clubs right now, so don't hesitate to snag him.
