White Sox | Austin Jackson collects three more hits

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:07:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson recorded his third straight multi-hit effort on Saturday, May 28, against the Kansas City Royals, going 3-for-5 with a run scored.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson apparently found his groove of Chicago's previous series against the Cleveland Indians, as today's multi-hit performance was his fourth this week - two shy of his total over his first 44 games. Over the last seven days alone, he has lifted his average 39 points to .257. Jackson doesn't bring enough in any category at this stage of his career to be a consistent fantasy asset, but a short-term hot hitter that comes cheap can be worth his weight in gold for DFS owners.

White Sox | Adam Eaton out again

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:22:17 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton is out for the second straight day against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Danny Duffy Friday, May 27. OF Austin Jackson moves up to the leadoff spot and OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth. OF Avisail Garcia moves to right field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Eaton is getting a chance to rest with the team facing lefties back-to-back days. A-Jax gains notable value hitting leadoff again with a chance to find more opportunities to run and score runs. Sands has pop but is inconsistent at the plate, making him more of a low-end dart throw in DFS. Garcia continues to disappoint his owners with his power potential, and his fantasy upside remains limited hitting low in the order. .

White Sox | Adam Eaton takes a seat

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:38:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Adam Eaton is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Austin Jackson moves to center field and is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy. Also, OF Jerry Sands draws into the lineup as the designated hitter and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax has the speed and Sands has the power, but both are merely low-end flyers in daily contests tonight. Jackson's move up the lineup makes him a little more intriguing for potential runs scored and stolen bases, but don't overvalue him because of that. Sands was once a big-time prospect but has hit just 10 home runs in his five years in the big leagues.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins takes a seat

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:36:08 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. SS Tyler Saladino draws the start at the 6 and is hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin. Also, OF Austin Jackson moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino doesn't have much offensive upside with only five home runs in the last two seasons combined. Look for better options at your shortstop position. Jackson's greatest asset is his speed, but he has only one theft on the season and is hitting .240 with no home runs. The move up the order makes him a potential sleeper target, but don't expect much in return.

White Sox | Austin Jackson moves up

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:16:04 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson is batting second in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has been more productive at the plate recently and has nine hits and four RBI over the last nine games. Jackson could be a starting candidate in some daily fantasy leagues as well as deeper mixed leagues.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins has a seat

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:25:53 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with SS Tyler Saladino hitting ninth. OF Austin Jackson moved up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax has a .241-0-11 line, and his only value is relegated to AL-only leagues. Saladino is barely hitting above .200 and isn't an option against Cole Hamels in DFS.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins resting Friday

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:09:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. SS Tyler Saladino takes his place at shortstop and is hitting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco. OF Austin Jackson moves into the two-hole as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino's fantasy value is pretty much non-existent with the bat. Avoid him everywhere. Jackson has been quiet, too, hitting only .217 (20-for-92) with no home runs and eight RBI. He gains value tonight, though, with the move up the order and could be a successful sleeper pick in DFS.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia, Jimmy Rollins out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:35:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia and SS Jimmy Rollins are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh, while SS Tyler Saladino is at the 6 and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez. Also, OF Austin Jackson moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is losing fantasy appeal very quickly with his .146 start (7-for-48 with two home runs), and he could lose more playing time to Sands. With that said, Sands has plenty of home run pop but has his daily value capped hitting low in the order. Saladino did homer the other day but shouldn't garner much attention in any format. A-Jax has a favorable lineup spot but is hitting only .170 and remains a low-end fantasy commodity.

White Sox | Austin Jackson breaks slump

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:51:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson had a single to break an 0-for-12 slump at the plate Sunday, April 17, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson, a .267-9-48 with 17 steals a year ago, is hitting .194 to start the year. You may want to keep him on your bench for now while he works his way through some early-season hitting woes.

White Sox | Austin Jackson not in lineup

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:07:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. That allows OF J.B. Shuck to start in right field, and he's hitting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck has only four career home runs in his five seasons in the majors and isn't an attractive fantasy option in any format.
