Fantasy Tip: With both Stubbs and Shin-Soo Choo landing on the DL, this may provide the biggest boost for top prospect Joey Gallo, who was just called up by the team. Although he hasn't played the outfield yet this season, he'll probably get some starts out there to get his bat in the lineup, and he'll also get time at first base and designated hitter. Outfielders Ryan Rya and Jared Hoying -- who was also just promoted -- will benefit, too.

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (hamstring), 2B Rougned Odor and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, May 22. OF Drew Stubbs will start in right field and is batting first. OF Ryan Rua will start at first base and is batting seventh, while 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at second base and is batting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Stubbs, Rua and Alberto have all posted disappointing numbers over the past seven days and can all be avoided in daily fantasy leagues.

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Wednesday, May 18. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in right field and is hitting eighth. OF Ian Desmond is hitting in the two-hole again.
Fantasy Tip: Stubbs has three hits in just eight at-bats with the Rangers, including a home run, but he remains a low-end daily candidate. Speed is his best asset, and it'll be tougher to utilize it hitting so low in the order. Desmond has come on strong lately and is hitting .318 with three home runs and 15 RBI in May. He's also hitting .350 with three of his six long balls against lefties. Desmond makes a fine addition to any daily lineups today.

Texas Rangers OF Drew Stubbs hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 10th inning Saturday, May 14, as Texas beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-5.
Fantasy Tip: Right now, Stubbs has decreased fantasy value because he does not have a regular role yet. Stubbs plays left field, which may not be an option down the road if Josh Hamilton comes back healthy. With Ian Desmond and Nomar Mazara also playing in the outfield, and Shin-Soo Choo coming back soon, there won't be many places for Stubbs to play. He's worth a pickup in very deep leagues, but leave him alone in the majority of formats.

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Carlos Rodon Tuesday, May 10. OF Drew Stubbs is in right field and batting ninth, while OF Ryan Rua is starting at first base and is hitting sixth.
Fantasy Tip: Stubbs' value is based on speed, and he'll have few chances to utilize it hitting ninth. He's a very weak daily pick. Rua hits much better against lefties (.368 in 19 at-bats), so he might be worth a selection as a deep sleeper if you're looking to save some salary cap space.
