Tue, 18 Aug 2015 16:23:57 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Mark Canha will start at first base and hit fifth in the order Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and LHP Clayton Kershaw. OF Sam Fuld will start in left field and hit second.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a left-handed hitter with a .108 batting average against left-handed pitching this season, and he should be avoided against Kershaw. Canha ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is also hitting just .156 against southpaws, and he can be avoided as well.

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.

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 17:24:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (illness) left in the third inning against the Houston Astros and was replaced by OF Sam Fuld Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been hitless in five of the six games since his return from the disabled list, and even if he is able to return to the lineup Sunday, Aug. 9, he should be avoided at FantasyScore.

Athletics | No Josh Reddick vs. Houston

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:04:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 7. OF Sam Fuld is starting in right field and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Reddick ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. There is no point starting Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap), either, though. He is just 3-for-30 against southpaws this season, and he owns an uninspiring .231/.311/.329 slash line for his career.

Athletics | Josh Reddick still out

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 10:01:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (back) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 5. OF Sam Fuld is starting in right field and hitting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: First off, Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) bats left-handed and is facing a southpaw, so that immediately makes him unattractive to daily gamers, despite hitting in a good lineup position. He's hitting only .111 (3-for-27) with one home run and three RBI against lefties this year. There's not much to like here.

Athletics | Josh Reddick sitting vs. Orioles

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:58:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, Aug. 3. OF Sam Fuld is starting in right field and batting seventh against Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With Coco Crisp ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) back in the mix, Reddick ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) could receive fewer at-bats going forward, especially if he continues to struggle at the dish. Over his past 40 games, Reddick has just 16 runs, three home runs, 19 RBI and a .243/.260/.357 slash line. His seasonal value could continue to fade. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .210 with a .294 on-base percentage this season over 232 plate appearances, so you should likely aim higher at FantasyScore.

Athletics | Sam Fuld leading off

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 15:27:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld will start in center field and lead off Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Cleveland Indians and RHP Cody Anderson. OF Billy Burns will serve as the designated hitter and hit fourth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting just .222 against right-handers this season, so it is odd to see him at the top of the order. FantasyScore owners can consider him as a cheap play in GPP tournaments, but he should be avoided in cash games.
