Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:32:52 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is sporting a .365 OPS over his past 90 plate appearances, and he is in danger of losing playing time to Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) going forward.

Tigers | Rajai Davis leading off vs. Pirates

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 13:43:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is leading off against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .348/.388/.587 slash line over his past 49 plate appearances and stands as an upside play for FantasyScore players when in the lineup, especially leading off. Just note, he faces a tall test againt Burnett Wednesday. In seasonal formats, there is a chance Davis begins to earn the majority of starts in center field with Anthony Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) sporting a .365 OPS over his past 90 plate appearances. Davis' speed makes him a viable add in the majority of leagues, albeit currently, just a speculative one.

Tigers | Anthony Gose not playing Wednesday

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:07:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Rajai Davis is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting only .161 (10-for-62) in the month of June and has faded quickly after a hot start to the season. Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) could start seeing more playing time in this platoon in center field. Davis is mainly reliant on stolen bases on FantasyScore, and he faces a tough matchup against Carrasco Wednesday afternoon.

Tigers | Anthony Gose hitting ninth

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:28:53 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is hitting ninth in the order against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Tuesday, June 23. OF Rajai Davis is in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has fallen on hard times of late, hitting only .172 (10-for-58) with no home runs or RBI in the month of June after a hot start to the season. He was bound for some regression in his BABIP, so this shouldn't come as a shock. Against a solid pitcher in Salazar while hitting at the bottom of the order, Gose is one to avoid tonight on FantasyScore.

Tigers | Rajai Davis batting ninth vs. Reds

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 12:36:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is batting ninth as the designated hitter against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot Monday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: While the lineup spot is less than ideal, Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has sneaky value for FantasyScore players. His speed can help add up fantasy points in a hurry both via stolen bases and stretching out extra-base hits. He is worth considering for contests Monday. He could aslo see more regular at-bats going forward, too, as Anthony Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is mired in a 5-for-45 slump over his past 12 games.

Tigers | Rajai Davis leading off vs. Cleveland

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:38:59 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is batting first as the designated hitter against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: While it isn't an ideal matchup against Salazar, Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a favorable lineup spot and is hitting in front of the Tigers' top three hitters. View Davis as a mid-priced outfield option with upside for FantasyScore contests Friday. However, he isn't a risk-free start by any means. Anthony Gose ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is just 3-for-35 with no extra-base hits and 10 strikeouts over his last nine games, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Davis earn a few extra starts going forward. In deep mixed leagues, Davis' seasonal value could spike due to his stolen base acumen and runs upside.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting .271 with one home run against lefties in 54 plate appearances. It is a difficult matchup against Lester, but Davis could be used in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore, if owners are planning to use Ian Kinsler or Miguel Cabrera.
