Tigers | Three Detroit regulars out

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:25:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann, SS Jose Iglesias and OF Anthony Gose are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is doing the catching and hitting seventh, 3B Mike Aviles is at the 6 and is batting eighth, and SS Andrew Romine is in center field and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: Salty got hot with regular playing time when McCann was on the DL, but has only four hits in his last 29 at-bats (.138). He's a low-end catching option if you're looking to save salary cap space. Aviles and Romine are desperation daily picks and should be avoided.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia in lineup

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:06:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Saturday, April 30, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong start to the 2016 season, Saltalamacchia has cooled off recently, with just one hit in 13 at-bats over the past week. That being said, his six home runs and 15 RBI are nothing to sneeze at, so he's worth a flier in daily fantasy games.

Tigers | Bobby Wilson starting against Twins

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:53:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Bobby Wilson is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Friday, April 29. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has eight runs, six home runs and 15 RBI to start the year, but his fantasy value is likely about to shrink with James McCann close to returning from injury. Wilson hasn't registered a hit through 10 plate appearances this season, and he owns a .201/.265/.298 slash line for his career. Avoid Wilson in all fantasy formats.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia resting

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:00:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. C Bobby Wilson is doing the catching and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson isn't much of a hitter, as he hit just .189 with one home run in 2015. You can find much better low-price catchers in daily formats Wednesday night.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia clubs sixth homer

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:09:02 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia accounted for his team's only run on Saturday, April 23, clubbing a sinker from Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber into the right-field stands.

Fantasy Tip: In one of the more surprising developments during the first month of the season, Salty ranks tied for second in the American League in home runs (six) and trails only Josh Donaldson in RBI (15). At this rate, it might be hard for manager Brad Ausmus to give James McCann his starting job back. Saltalamacchia needs to be owned in all leagues right now, even if Ausmus eventually decides to use a left-right platoon when McCann comes off the disabled list.

Tigers | Anthony Gose, Saltalamacchia sitting

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:13:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Tyler Collins is starting in center field and batting seventh, while C Bobby Wilson is behind the dish and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Collins and Wilson are at the bottom of the barrel in terms of daily options to consider Friday night. That's two straight games Gose has been on the bench against right-handers, so his playing time could be in jeopardy moving forward. After all, Gose is off to a .200 (8-for-40) start with no stolen bases in one attempt.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia homers again

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 16:02:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his fourth home run of the season Sunday, April 17, in a 5-4 loss to the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is looking decent in his early-season audition, especially with James McCann on the disabled list. With four homers and 11 runs batted in, Saltalamacchia is a decent option at least until McCann returns. Then wait and see what the Tigers do as far as his playing time.

Tigers | Three Tigers take a seat

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:10:01 -0700

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias, OF Anthony Gose and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia are out of the lineup Thursday, April 14. OF Tyler Collins is hitting sixth, C Bobby Wilson is hitting seventh and SS Andrew Romine is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The trio is a combined 1-for-5 (.200) this season, and none of them provide enough upside for a DFS start. Furthermore, Jordan Zimmermann is hitting ninth in the National League park, which means the bottom of Detroit's order is even more questionable. That could affect Ian Kinsler in the leadoff spot. Kinsler is on a .355-3-8 tear and remains a daily consideration, but his RBI upside is minimal today.

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 07:33:52 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Salty isn't a real safe DFS flyer today.

Tigers | Jarrod Saltalamacchia drives in four

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 18:23:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltalamacchia went 2-for-5 with a double, home run and four RBIs in a victory over the Miami Marlins Wednesday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia is unlikely to see much playing time backing up James McCann but is worth considering for daily fantasy lineups if the matchup is favorable.
