San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. C Jackson Williams is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Godley.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson Williams won't be available on FantasyScore this evening, so you don't need to worry about him. He'll be a low-priced, low-end catching commodity in daily leagues, though, on days he's spelling Posey.

San Francisco Giants C Andrew Susac (wrist) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Saturday, Sept. 5, due to ligament damage in his wrist. C Jackson Williams was called up in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) was primarily used as a catcher when Buster Posey played at first base. That experiment probably comes to an end with Susac's injury. Williams will probably not play enough to gain sufficient fantasy value the rest of the way.
