Athletics | No Danny Valencia vs. Rangers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:15:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. 3B Ryon Healy is starting at the hot corner and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has been excellent this season when on the field. But fantasy owners need to prepare for him to receiving less playing time going forward, and he's likely best left to deep mixed and AL-only leagues now. It's a shame because his .299/.351/.481 slash line plays in all settings. Healy is 11-for-43 (.256 batting average) with a .465 slugging percentage to start his career, and he's worth adding in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:28:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Khris Davis is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Tuesday, July 26. 3B Danny Valencia will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has recorded six hits and four RBI over his last eight games and is hitting .302 this season. He can be a starting option in AL-only leagues and some daily fantasy leagues.

Athletics | Danny Valencia drives in three

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:41:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia went 2-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and three RBIs Monday, July 25, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has struggled with his average in the month of July, as his batting average has slipped from .324 to .302. Still, he has solid power potential and is a must-start in AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso sits versus southpaw

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:52:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez Monday, July 25. 3B Ryon Healy is starting at the hot corner and batting seventh, with 3B Danny Valencia moving across the diamond to play first base.

Fantasy Tip: Healy has held his own with a .278 average, two homers and seven RBI in his first 36 at-bats in the majors and is worth a look for depth at corner infield in AL-only leagues. He's merely a deep sleeper in DFS this evening, though. Alonso has picked things up at the plate in July with a .269 average but still has just one homer and nine RBI on the month and is a very average fantasy commodity with limited power.

Athletics | Coco Crisp scratched from lineup

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:23:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (neck) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, July 24, because of neck soreness. OF Jake Smolinski will start in center field. 3B Danny Valencia will start in right field, while 1B Yonder Alonso will start at first base and is batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso is hitting only .220 with one home run and six RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Athletics | Three A's regulars sitting out

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:12:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia, SS Marcus Semien and 1B Billy Butler are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. 3B Ryon Healy is at the hot corner and is batting eighth, while SS Arismendy Alcantara is playing shortstop and hitting ninth. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in center field again and is hitting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: Healy has seen regular at-bats since his call-up and is hitting .250 with a homer and six RBI in 24 at-bats, but he's merely short-term depth in AL leagues and a low-end deep sleeper pick in DFS. Alcantara has a very limited offensive profile and has no upside hitting low in the order. Smolinski is probably the most attractive of the trio in daily lineups as a value pick after homering last night.

Athletics | Coco Crisp, Yonder Alonso sitting

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:34:44 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Matt Moore Thursday, July 21. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in center field and is batting eighth, while 3B Ryon Healy draws in at third base and is hitting ninth. 3B Danny Valencia moves across the diamond to first base and SS Marcus Semien is batting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: With a lefty on the bump, Crisp and Alonso are rested. Smolinski doesn't move the DFS needle much hitting that low in the order. He's a desperation stab. Healy has looked good so far but is untested and also has limited upside hitting ninth tonight. Both Valencia and Semien have good power and are nice value selections for daily gamers against the lefty.

Athletics | Danny Valencia, Jed Lowrie sitting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:03:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia and 2B Jed Lowrie are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 3B Ryon Healy is at the hot corner and is hitting seventh, while 2B Arismendy Alcantara is starting at the keystone and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Doug Fister. Also, SS Marcus Semien moves up to second in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Healy has shown well in his first 19 major league at-bats with six hits (one homer), six RBI and a .319 average. He's more of a deep sleeper pick for now in DFS and merely an AL-only option in seasonal leagues. Alcantara can run a little but but is extremely limited offensively and should be ignored in DFS. Semien gains daily value today hitting second and is a fine addition to any fantasy lineup with his 20 home runs and 48 RBI from the shortstop position.

Athletics | Oakland resting three players

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:48:01 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick, C Stephen Vogt and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, July 19. 3B Danny Valencia will start at first base and is batting third. OF Khris Davis will start in left field, while 1B Billy Butler will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth. C Matt McBride will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia is hitting only .214 over the last seven days but should still be a decent starting candidate. Butler is hitting .250 this month and can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. McBride is hitting under .200 this season and should be avoided in most leagues.
