Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind sitting out

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 18:00:48 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday, July 19. OF Nelson Cruz will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Franklin Gutierrez will start in right field and is batting second. OF Daniel Robertson will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .200 in 20 at-bats this month and may not be the best option for owners in most leagues. Robertson is hitting only .188 this season and is not a strong option.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez hitting second

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:47:30 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in right field and is hitting second against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Monday, July 18. OF Seth Smith takes a seat with a southpaw on the hill.

Fantasy Tip: Guti is typically a great DFS value play because of his .282/.359/.534 line against southpaws this year, and seven of his nine homers are against lefties. That also plays in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but he's not facing a typical lefty tonight in Sale. That makes him more of a risk.

Mariners | Several SEA regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:59:03 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith, C Chris Iannetta and SS Ketel Marte (ankle) are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Saturday, July 16. OF Daniel Robertson will bat leadoff and play left field, C Jesus Sucre will bat eighth and start behind the plate and INF Shawn O'Malley will bat ninth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson, Sucre and O'Malley should all be considered as nothing more than inexpensive fliers in daily fantasy games with little upside.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind out

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:11:43 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Danny Duffy Thursday, July 7. OF Franklin Gutierrez is in right field and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has been very good lately, especially against lefty bats, so Smith and Lind are rested. Gutierrez and Lee have appeal against southpaws and sport decent power. However, it's a tough matchup, so both bats are more of deep sleepers in daily action.

Mariners | Steve Smith hits fifth HR in past week

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 22:05:19 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith was 1-for-4 with a three-run home run against the Houston Astros on Wednesday, July 5. It was Smith's 11th home run this season and fifth in his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Smith is completely dialed in right now. Over his last eight games, the veteran is 12-for-30 (.400) with five home runs and 14 RBI. If there's a righty on the bump you should consider Smith an option in DFS, AL-only and even deep mixed leagues

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind resting

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:51:13 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, July 5. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in right field and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: This is typically Seattle's arrangement when they face a lefty. Smith has been scorching hot (four home runs, 11 RBI in last six games) and is now up to 10 homers on the year. Consider adding him in deep mixed leagues while he's swinging well. Gutierrez and Lee are fine value plays in DFS tonight against a lefty. Guti in particular is hitting .295 with seven of his nine dingers against southpaws.

Mariners | First grand slam for Seth Smith

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 18:41:39 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith went 1-for-4 with his first career grand slam in a 9-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, July 3, and he has homered in four straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has 11 RBI during his four-game homer streak, and he continues to hit right-handed pitching hard while rarely facing lefties. He has solid upside in DFS formats when the matchup is right, and he can help out in AL-only leagues if you don't mind the extra lineup maintenance.

Mariners | Seth Smith drives in four runs

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 23:39:40 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith finished 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and four RBIs Saturday, July 2, against the Baltimore Orioles. Smith homered for the third straight game.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has posted big numbers lately, emerging as a must-start fantasy option in AL-only leagues and deeper mixed play as well as DFS as a mid-tier option.

Mariners | Seth Smith, Adam Lind resting

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:00:41 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Seth Smith and 1B Adam Lind are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jon Niese Tuesday, June 28. OF Franklin Gutierrez is starting in right field and is hitting second, while 1B Dae-ho Lee is at first base and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Smith and Lind typically sit against lefties, so this isn't a big surprise. Gutierrez and Lee have really played well against southpaws in 2016 and both are solid value buys in DFS formats this evening, especially against the struggling Niese.

Mariners | Adam Lind out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:36:10 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Adam Lind is not in the lineup Sunday, June 26, against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia. OF Nelson Cruz will serve as the designated hitter and remain in his usual fourth spot in the order, while OF Franklin Gutierrez will replace Cruz in right and bat second. C Chris Iannetta will start behind the plate after a day off and hit seventh, while INF/OF Shawn O'Malley will replace OF Seth Smith in left and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is hitting .295 with six homers and 18 RBI in 88 at-bats against southpaws this season. Although he's not a recommended DFS play, he should make for a solid fill-in in regular leagues. Iannetta has performed well versus left-handers as well in 2016 and could be worth a flyer in daily as well as weekly leagues. O'Malley can be avoided in all formats.
