Athletics | Coco Crisp expected to start in LF

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 16:28:47 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is expected to start in left field for the A's in 2016, if he's healthy. However, the 36-year-old played in just 44 games last year because of neck issues. 1B Mark Canha will see time at first base, but he, along with OFs Sam Fuld, Jake Smolinski and Andrew Lambo can fill in in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Canha gives fantasy owners the most to like of this group after drilling 16 home runs and driving in 70 RBI in 2015. How many games can you realistically expect Crisp to play given his age and injury concerns? There's a good chance he becomes a bench player even if he's healthy.

Athletics | Billy Burns sitting vs. Angels

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 13:36:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. OF Sam Fuld is starting in center field and batting first against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Burns ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He continues to hit for a solid average (.286 in September), but the hamstring injury appears to have zapped his speed -- just one stolen base this month. If speed is a priority in your seasonal league, Burns likely isn't your guy any longer. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) owns a .515 OPS since the All-Star break and is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantsayScore Wednesday.

Athletics | No Billy Burns against Orioles

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 12:23:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns in not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. OF Sam Fuld is starting in center field and leading off against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Monday.

Fantasy Tip: After an excellent run, Burns ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has hit an extended dry spell. Over his past 38 games, he has a .250 batting average with just 15 runs and eight stolen bases. He could turn it back around, but seasonal owners shouldn't feel the need to wait it out, especially if there are readily available contributors on the waiver wire. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is mired in a 2-for-24 stretch over his past 10 games, and should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FanatasyScore contests Monday.

Athletics | Josh Reddick sitting out

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 09:20:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Sunday, Aug. 16. OF Sam Fuld will start in right field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) struggles against left-handed pitching, so he is receiving a day off. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has only one hit in his last nine games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
