Rays | Brandon Guyer makes most of chance

Wed, 04 May 2016 20:56:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer made another start Wednesday, May 4, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and he posted his second straight multi-hit game, and third game with two hits in the past five outings.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is getting his chance to play regularly and he is taking advantage of the situation. Still, his appeal is limited to deeper AL-only fantasy leagues and as a low-cost option in DFS play.

Rays | Three Rays regulars not playing

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:44:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are all out of the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Alex Wood Wednesday, May 4. OF Brandon Guyer is in two-hole and starting in center field, 1B Steve Pearce is at first base and is hitting cleanup and SS Tim Beckham is at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Miller (.176, two home runs) has basically entered a platoon with Beckham at shortstop, which hurts his value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Pearce, Guyer and Beckham are all dice rolls as low-end daily options, although Guyer and Pearce are a bit more attractive based on where they reside in the order tonight.

Rays | Corey Dickerson out Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:15:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays DH Corey Dickerson is not playing Tuesday, May 3, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. DH Brandon Guyer will bat second against Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: Because Kazmir is a lefty, Dickerson takes a seat for the Tuesday game. Guyer carries no fantasy value for daily players, so you may want to consider someone else to replace Dickerson.

Rays | Desmond Jennings sitting vs. Toronto

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:33:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is crawling out of the gate with a .194/.267/.269 slash line. At this stage, he is a fringe fantasy asset in all seasonal leagues and should be left to the waiver wire outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. Guyer has been the opposite with a .333/.471/.444 line through 34 plate appearances, and he is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Rays | Three Rays regulars out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:56:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Brandon Guyer is in center field and hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is starting at first and hitting sixth, and SS Tim Beckham is at the 6 and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathis doesn't instill fear in the opposition these days with decreased velocity and dominance. Guyer doesn't have much power but can be a rat on the basepaths as a deep daily sleeper. Pearce is another deep sleeper worth taking a look at, but he had only a .196 average and four home runs against lefties in 2015. Beckham is a desperation gamble.

Rays | Three Rays have day off

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:52:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Brandon Guyer is hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is cleaning up and SS Tim Beckham is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce is the only one of the three worth daily consideration. He faces David Price, but he could be worth a low-end start.

Rays | Brandon Guyer has four hits Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:29:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer came up with four hits Sunday, April 17, in a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is normally a reserve outfielder with little fantasy value, as evidenced by his 2-for-13 (.154) start to the season. It's rare when he has a game with four hits, so chalk this up as an abnormality and leave Guyer on the bench.

Rays | Corey Dickerson, Steven Souza Jr. out

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 07:42:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson and Steven Souza Jr. are not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, April 17. OF Brandon Guyer is batting second and playing right field, while 1B/OF Logan Morrison is batting sixth and serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer may be worth considering as an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy games because of his career success versus southpaws. Morrison is 2-for-29 with 14 strikeouts to start the season and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Rays | Pair of Tampa Bay hitters sitting

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 12:01:42 -0700

Tampa Bay OF Kevin Kiermaier (head) and 2B Logan Forsythe (leg, hip) are not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks on Saturday, April 16. The pair was involved in an outfield collision on Friday, April 15, and will be replaced by OF Brandon Guyer and SS Tim Beckham, respectively. Guyer will bat leadoff, while Beckham will hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: There is still no official timetable on Kiermaier or Forsythe, although it sounds as if the latter has a decent shot at playing Sunday. Guyer is a reasonable low-cost option in DFS for this game as he has enjoyed a relative amount of success against southpaws in his career. Beckham could be ignored in virtually all formats.

Rays | Three Tampa regulars out

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:26:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Chris Sale Friday, April 15. OF Steven Souza moves to designated hitter, OF Brandon Guyer is in right field and hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is at first and hitting cleanup and SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison and Miller are both off to terrible starts, and you should consider benching them until they turn it around in traditional formats. Guyer and Pearce have favorable lineups spots tonight but are tough to rely on in daily formats while facing a tough lefty in Sale. Beckham should be ignored in most fantasy formats.
