Rangers | Delino DeShields leading off

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:05:37 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in left field and is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Friday, July 22. 1B Mitch Moreland is on the bench against a lefty, and 2B Jurickson Profar is serving as the designated hitter and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields was demoted earlier this year after he disappointed with a .217/.294/.302 line in 106 at-bats. He'll likely see limited playing time as outfield depth with Shin-Soo Choo on the DL, but he can be attractive those in AL-only leagues for his speed. Profar should see regular playing time now between first base, DH and the outfield, and his overall .304/.351/.435 line should play in all leagues. His multiposition eligibility also makes him more attractive.

Rangers | Prince Fielder to start at 1B

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:36:45 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will start at first base against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Sunday, July 17. 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder has picked up only three hits in his last seven games and is hitting .179 this month. Owners probably should avoid Fielder and look for more productive players for their lineup.

Rangers | Two Rangers sit Friday

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 08:16:10 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo and 1B Mitch Moreland are out of the lineup Friday, July 15, with OF Ryan Rua hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers are without the DH in Wrigley Field. Rua has a .272-7-19 line, and he's a low-end option against Kyle Hendricks.

Rangers | Texas sitting three players

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:16:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Robinson Chirinos are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 10. 3B Adrian Beltre will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Prince Fielder will start at first base. OF Ryan Rua will start at left field and is batting fourth. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at third base and is batting sixth. C Bobby Wilson will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .348 with three home runs and eight RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and should be a fine option in daily fantasy leagues. Profar is hitting only.208 over the last seven days but should still be a starting candidate for owners. Wilson is hitting only .231 this season and should be avoided in most leagues.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar sitting Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 17:45:29 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is not in the lineup against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, July 9. 1B Mitch Moreland will play first base and bat eighth against SP Ricky Nolasco.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland has some pop in his bat, but he is nothing more than a roll-of-the-dice play in DFS formats.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland still out

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:19:41 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (calf) remains out of the lineup Friday, July 8. 2B Jurickson Profar is at first base again and is batting sixth against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Moreland wasn't nursing a calf injury, Profar could be stealing valuable playing time away from him. Profar has hit well with Texas since his call-up, batting .317 with three home runs and 13 RBI and should be owned in deep mixed leagues. He's a strong value play in DFS leagues this evening, too.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland out again Thursday

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 14:28:37 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (calf) is not in the lineup again Thursday, July 7. 2B Jurickson Profar will start in his place and bat fifth opposite Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland has missed the last few games, but is being considered day-to-day. Profar continues to benefit as a result, making another start at first base. With a .328/.366/.457 line, the 23-year-old sensation is a solid value play in daily leagues.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo, Mitch Moreland out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 11:58:31 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and is hitting sixth, while 2B Jurickson Profar is starting at first base and batting leadoff against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright. 2B Rougned Odor moves up to third in the order, while OF Nomar Mazara is dropped to seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Choo is often injured, and he could need a DL stint if his injury doesn't improve. Stay tuned. Profar has been a big-time contributor for the Rangers when he's played, hitting .333/.373/.468 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 111 at-bats. He's a fine selection in DFS today against the knuckleballer. Rua has hit well this year, but he's batting only .227 against righties this year and should be faded in daily play.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara, Mitch Moreland out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 11:47:20 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP David Price Tuesday, July 5. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and hitting cleanup, while 2B Jurickson Profar is at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is in a prime lineup position to return nice daily value tonight, and he's also batting .361 (22-for-61) with three of his seven home runs against lefties this year. Profar has done nothing but produce for Texas when in the lineup, but his lineup position leaves his daily upside minimal.

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 08:10:48 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with 2B Jurickson Profar hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has cooled off, but he's still hitting .330 and makes a solid lower-middle flyer against Rick Porcello.
