Rays | Chris Archer looks to stay hot

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:46:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer is the probable starter for Thursday, April 16, against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. He has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 14 straight road outings dating back to May 14. He is tied for the club record with former SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($6,100; 12.2% of cap) has a favorable matchup against Toronto’s Aaron Sanchez ($4,300; 8.6% of cap), who lasted just 3 ⅓ innings in his first-career start in Baltimore April 11. FantasyScore owners would be wise to target Archer until he cools off on the road.

Rays | Chris Archer to start opener

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 09:21:42 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer was named the Opening Day starter Thursday, March 26.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has a home matchup against the Baltimore Orioles. The O's lost a lot of offense, and 1B Chris Davis still has a game remaining on his suspension. Archer is a solid option on FantasyScore at a reduced rate from the rest of the SP1s.

Rays | Alex Cobb to start opening day

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 10:56:51 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb will start the team's opening day game in 2015, according to manager Kevin Cash. Cobb went 10-9 with a 2.87 ERA in 27 starts in 2014 and is the team's ace after SP David Price was traded to the Detroit Tigers. SPs Chris Archer and Drew Smyly will follow Cobb in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb has really come into his own as the Rays' ace starter. He's a notch below the elite fantasy ace names out there, but he could put up just as good numbers in a full season, making him a bargain in the middle rounds of standard 12-team leagues.

Rays | Jeremy Hellickson returning

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:10:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jeremy Hellickson will start Saturday, July 26, against the Boston Red Sox. SP Chris Archer will go Sunday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Hell Boy was sent down because of the All-Star break and the desire to keep him on a normal rotation schedule. He's a deep-mixed option for the pitching-desperate. There's a smidge of a chance for a good performance down the stretch.

Rays | Chris Archer looking to make adjustments

Fri, 16 May 2014 09:08:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer hasn't been able to put hitters away with two strikes, has had trouble avoiding the big inning and hasn't been able to get right-handers to chase his slider in his last three outings, in which he's 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA with 10 walks and 11 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting .277 against him with two strikes. Manager Joe Maddon has suggested that Archer go with a quicker tempo. "I'm just not locating," Archer said. "I try to throw like super nasty ones instead of just my normal slider, so just focusing on changing my focal point instead of making my pitch sharper or better."

Fantasy Tip: Chalk it up as one poor outing. He remains a steady fantasy contributor worth using in most formats.
