From -- thru  --


Athletics | Josh Reddick out of lineup

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:26:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Sam Fuld will move over to right field, with OF Mark Canha drawing the start in left field and batting sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting a paltry .081, with two singles and one double against left-handed pitchers this season. Canha should not be considered against Tigers LHP David Price.

Athletics | Sam Fuld slumping hard

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:58:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld went 0-for-2 in a 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, May 21, and he has just two hits in 29 at-bats this month.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has scored just one run and doesn't have an RBI this month. He has no business being in lineups at FantasyScore right now.

Athletics | Billy Burns, Sam Fuld both playing

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:53:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics OFs Billy Burns and Sam Fuld are both in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome Thursday, May 21. Burns is starting in center field and hitting leadoff, while Fuld is in left and hitting eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Fuld ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should both see more playing time with Coco Crisp (neck) out indefinitely. Burns is the much better option at FantasyScore, especially since he's likely to hit leadoff more often than not. The same thinking goes for their values tonight against Colome.

Athletics | Sam Fuld in CF again Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:17:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order for the second straight day Tuesday, May 19. He'll be facing Houston Astros SP Roberto Hernandez. OF Billy Burns remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Burns ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) appear to be in some sort of platoon in center field for the time being, limiting their values to deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Both outfielders are speedsters, but Burns has more upside at FantasyScore. Even against Hernandez, who has been decent lately, Fuld is nothing more than a deep sleeper in daily lineups.

Athletics | Sam Fuld in CF Monday

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:19:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Monday, May 18. OF Billy Burns will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting only .200 (20-for-100) with no home runs and five RBI this season. He's a very weak FantasyScore play tonight, even while going up against a pitcher making his major league debut.

Athletics | Sam Fuld draws start in CF

Tue, 12 May 2015 15:05:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson Tuesday, May 12. OF Billy Burns is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has little offensive upside for the A's, and he's really only worth consideration as a cheap sleeper pick at FantasyScore when he's at the top of the lineup. Ignore him Tuesday night.

Athletics | Coco Crisp with day off

Thu, 07 May 2015 09:06:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is taking the day off Thursday, May 7, a day after being activated from the disabled list. OF Sam Fuld is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting only .213 (19-for-89) with a .613 OPS, and he has basically become a fourth outfielder with Billy Burns playing well and Crisp returning from injury. Fuld is hitting only .229 against righties this year with a .655 OPS, too, which makes him a pretty weak play at FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Burns leading off again

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:57:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Monday, May 4. OF Sam Fuld is on the bench to start.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is getting some playing time at the leadoff spot at the expense of Sam Fuld right now. Burns is a speedster that is particularly attractive setting the table for the scrappy A's, and he's a solid choice for FantasyScore players tonight. However, his fantasy value may be short-lived once Coco Crisp returns soon.

Athletics | Billy Burns in leadoff spot

Sat, 02 May 2015 15:24:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is in the lineup and will bat from the leadoff position Saturday, May 2, against the Texas Rangers. OF Sam Fuld is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Burns will make his season debut and will do so from a very enviable position in the order. Burns hit .315 and stole five bases in 99 plate appearance at Class AAA before being re-called. Burns is a switch-hitter going up against Rangers RHP Nick Martinez. Burns is someone to watch for going forward, especially if he can remain at the top of the order.

Athletics | Sam Fuld sitting out vs. Astros

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:11:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld is not in the starting lineup against the Houston Astros Friday, April 24. OF Craig Gentry is starting in center field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: This has been a consistent lefty vs. righty and vice versa platoon. Make sure to avoid Fuld ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is likely not worth starting, either. Gentry has gone 0-for-22 to start the season, after all.
