Giants | Gregor Blanco leading off vs. Reds

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:25:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and leading off against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, July 27. Giants OF Denard Span is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: View this as a routine day off for Span, but he's barely moving the fantasy needle enough to be anything more than a low-end option in deep mixed leagues. He's got just three stolen bases through his past 38 games, after all. Blanco is a nice value play in daily contests Wednesday.

Giants | Denard Span favors Fenway Park

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 12:30:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span is hitting .302 (16-for-53) with a .393 on-base percentage in 14 career games at Fenway Park, where he'll face the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Span is giving his fantasy owners modest returns with a .248 average, 40 runs, four homers, 30 RBI and nine steals in 82 games thus far. He doesn't often fill out the stat sheet and isn't a popular daily pick, but he can be useful as outfield depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Giants | Denard Span returns Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 14:59:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck) is back in the starting lineup as the leadoff hitter against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday, July 8. 2B Grant Green moves down to seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Span has produced mediocre stats across the board this year with a .253 average, 38 runs scored, four home runs, 30 RBI and eight stolen bases. He can be useful in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his runs and speed, but he's not giving you much else. Span has hit .230 with a homer and eight RBI against lefties, so give him another day before bringing him back in your lineups.

Giants | Denard Span takes batting practice

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:26:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck) took batting practice Wednesday, July 6, and he remains hopeful to play against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Span's 38 runs, 30 RBI, eight stolen bases and .253/.335/.352 slash line are pretty modest numbers, and while he's likely capable of more, he's best left to deep mixed and NL-only settings. Stay tuned for updates on his status leading into the weekend.

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 16:44:39 -0700

Giants | Denard Span remains sidelined

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 16:07:07 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. OF Gregor Blanco (knee) returns to the starting lineup and is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: There's nothing really special about Blanco for fantasy owners, but hitting leadoff makes him an under-the-radar sleeper pick in DFS tonight. He's unlikely to fill out the stat sheet, though, and he's hitting .249 with no home runs, 15 RBI and three steals.

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 10:37:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck) and OF Gregor Blanco (knee) remain out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with OF Angel Pagan leading off and OF Jarrett Parker hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Pagan has a .284-3-28 line with seven steals. He has upside in the leadoff spot against lefty Tyler Anderson. Parker has a .276-5-11 line, and he's a sneaky basement play.

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 05:45:21 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Span is providing modest production with 38 runs, 30 RBI, eight stolen bases and a .253/.335/.352 slash line, but he's likely capable of more. At this point, he's best left to deep mixed and NL-only settings, and you should view him as a risky option in daily contests.
