Athletics | Jed Lowrie takes a seat

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:27:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 2. 2B/OF Chris Coghlan shifts to second base and is batting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns. OF Mark Canha is playing third base and hitting seventh. Also, OF Coco Crisp moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan has four home runs and 10 RBI in just 75 at-bats but is hitting .160 on the year. He's a sleeper pick in daily formats if you're looking to save a little money. Canha and Crisp could also project as fine value plays in DFS action tonight against Karns. Canha is hitting .264 with 14 of his 19 career home runs against right-handers.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie off to a strong start

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:59:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is batting a team-high .325 with 12 RBI while bouncing all over the lineup having batted everywhere but leadoff, eighth and ninth. Lowrie is also hitting .556 with runners in scoring position and .429 during his current six-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie's solid start still doesn't move the fantasy needle enough to make him anything more than a low-end starter in deep mixed leagues. He hasn't hit a home run or stole a base yet this season and owns an underwhelming .351 slugging percentage, after all.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie will not start

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 09:13:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (calf) is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Sunday, April 24. 2B Tyler Ladendorf will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup. Lowrie is dealing with calf soreness, but it is not believed to be serious.

Fantasy Tip: Ladendorf was called up earlier in the week and was hitting .240 with Class AAA Nashville. Owners should avoid Ladendorf and look for other players for their lineups.

Athletics | Danny Valencia, Yonder Alonso out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:17:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Chris Coghlan is at third base and hitting sixth, while OF Mark Canha is at first base and batting second against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino. Also, 2B Jed Lowrie moves to the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia could miss a few more game, so make sure you have a suitable replacement in place. Canha has a nice lineup position and actually hits better against righties than lefties, so he's worth a cheap flyer in DFS as a deep sleeper. Coghlan is hitting .184 but has a three-game hitting streak. He's a low-end outfield option today.

Athletics | Coco Crisp, Billy Butler still out

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:51:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp and 1B Billy Butler remain out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. OF Billy Burns remains the leadoff man and is in center, while OF Chris Coghlan is at second base and is hitting second against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi. 2B Jed Lowrie is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp (.158) and Butler (.150) are both trending downward after slow starts to the year. Burns is a younger version of Crisp with plenty of speed, and he's a fine daily pick against Eovaldi tonight. Coghlan hits righties much better in his career and could be worth the flyer as a deep sleeper in the two-hole. Lowrie is coming off a four-hit game. Ride him while he's hot.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie has four-hit game

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 23:17:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie went 4-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI Tuesday, April 19, against the New York Yankees, pushing his batting average to .286.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie has hit safely in three straight games, trying a season-high. He also has at least one RBI in each of his past two games, his longest streak since he opened the season with at least one RBI in three straight games April 4-6. He is a decent AL-only fantasy option and worth using in deeper mixed formats, too.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie sitting out

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 11:22:22 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen. 2B Chris Coghlan will start at second base and is batting sixth, while 1B Billy Butler will serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Butler has only one hit in his last 15 at-bats and is no longer an everyday starter. Butler could be a candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues, but they should be able to find better players for their lineups.

Athletics | Khris Davis, Jed Lowrie resting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 09:40:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Khris Davis and 2B Jed Lowrie are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. OF Coco Crisp is starting in left field and is in the two-hole, while OF Chris Coghlan is starting at second base and batting sixth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has fizzled out of the gates, hitting just .167 (5-for-30) with 14 strikeouts. You should consider keeping him benched when he returns until he shows signs of life. Against Shoemaker, who had a 4.46 ERA last year and looked shaky in his first start this year, both Crisp and Coghlan could be sneaky daily sleepers Wednesday afternoon.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie could excel Thursday

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 23:56:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie is 5-for-8 with two home runs lifetime against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos, the starter for the game Thursday, April 7.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie could be a nice DFS value in Thursday's game, as the sample size isn't great against Latos but he has powered up rather nicely in limited interaction.
