Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Delino DeShields out

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 15:27:16 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus and OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Tuesday, July 26. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at second base, while 1B Mitch Moreland will serve as the designated hitter and is batting eighth. OF Ryan Rua will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland has only three hits in his last 20 at-bats and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Rua is hitting .238 with one home run and two RBI this month. Owners should be able to find better players to use in their lineups and can avoid Rua.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar draws into lineup

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 14:49:55 -0700

Texas Rangers INF Jurickson Profar is starting at shortstop and leading off against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Monday, July 18. SS Elvis Andrus is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Playing time is the only thing holding back Profar's fantasy ascent. He is worth owning and plugging into your lineup when he's starting because of his .326/.365/.465 slash line and 21 runs through 39 games. His keeper/dynasty value is increasing. Andrus continues to provide respectable fantasy returns with 43 runs, 44 RBI, 13 stolen bases and a .290/.343/.414 line. He's a viable starter in the majority of fantasy formats.

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 07:41:35 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is out of the lineup Thursday, June 30, with SS Jurickson Profar hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Profar's playing time has dwindled of late, but his results haven't. He's 3-for-8 (.375) the last week, and he is hitting .347 in June. He's a solid midrange grab against Michael Pineda.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus is enjoying his best offensive month of the season, posting a solid average with speed and plenty of runs scored. He remains a solid middle infielder option across most fantasy formats.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Bobby Wilson out Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 11:07:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, June 18. 1B/DH Prince Fielder will play first base and bat fifth, INF Jurickson Profar will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder is starting at first base because the game is taking place in a National League stadium, which means the DH is not in effect. Profar is batting .412 in 51 at-bats versus right-handed pitching this year and should be viewed as a viable option in all fantasy formats. Chirinos has four home runs and seven RBI in just 28 at-bats this year and makes an excellent value play in DFS.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus stuff the stat line

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 05:40:07 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with three runs, a double, a three-run home run, three RBI and a stolen base during the Rangers' 10-4 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: While offensive outbursts like the showing Saturday won't become the norm from Andrus, he has a relatively high floor and is a viable starter at the 6 in the majority of seasonal leagues. Thus far, Andrus has 24 runs, 14 extra-base hits, 21 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .298/.345/.414 slash line. Hitting in a potent lineup helps, too.

Rangers | Three Texas starters sitting

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:36:39 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Jared Hoying and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, May 29. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting sixth. C Bryan Holaday will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while 2B Hanser Alberto will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .429 with one home run and three RBI against left-handed pitchers and can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Alberto and Holaday have not done much at the plate this season and probably should be avoided in most leagues.
