Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks batting cleanup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:07:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and batting fourth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Tuesday, July 5. Arizona INF/OF Phil Gosselin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks owns a .563 slugging percentage against southpaws this season, and he is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Tuesday. However, his seasonal value is tied to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Gosselin's playing time projects to dwindle once Arizona is healthy, and his .263/.315/.347 slash line doesn't exactly move the fantasy needle.

Diamondbacks | Three D-backs resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 09:23:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Nick Ahmed, C Welington Castillo and OF Peter O'Brien are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at second and hitting second, C Chris Herrmann is catching and batting sixth and 3B Brandon Drury is in left field and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the juicy lineup spot, Gosselin is a light-hitting middle infielder that isn't attractive to those playing DFS today. Drury had a hot start to the year but has faded with limited playing time and is a low-end option near the bottom of the order. Herrmann has been a big surprise this year with a .298/.363/.529 slash line, six home runs and 26 RBI. You could do much worse than Herrmann if you're looking for a cheap value pick at catcher in daily games.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two players

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:19:35 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and SS Nick Ahmed are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Friday, June 24. 2B Jean Segura will start at shortstop, while 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting fourth. C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has been producing at the plate recently and has a .353 batting average and one RBI over the last seven days. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Herrmann is hitting .276 in June and should be a starting option in two-catcher leagues and some daily leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb sitting vs. Toronto

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:57:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. INF Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb has been seeing more time against left-handed hurlers lately, but draws out Wednesday. He is putting together a great season, though, and his 34 runs, 14 home runs, 45 RBI and .278/.361/.556 slash line plays in the majority of seasonal leagues. Gosselin owns a career .731 OPS against southpaws and checks out as a viable flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Diamondbacks | Paul Goldschmidt sits Monday

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 07:49:19 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 1B Paul Goldschmidt is out of the lineup Monday, June 20, with 1B Phil Gosselin hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has a .253-1-5 this season and doesn't have a lot of luster in the two-hole ahead of Jake Lamb instead of Goldy. The D-Backs face Jeremy Hellickson, but Gosselin isn't a fruitful DFS play.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:19:30 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (back), INF Jean Segura and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Sunday, June 19. INF Phil Gosselin will lead off and play second base, C Chris Herrmann will bat fifth and start behind the plate, OF Brandon Drury will bat seventh and play right field and SS Nick Ahmed will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Herrmann and Drury are the best bets for daily fantasy players searching for productive sources of salary cap relief, although both players have struggled recently. Herrmann is batting .282 with six home runs and 23 RBI through 103 at-bats but is just 2-for-11 over the past two weeks. Drury is hitting .270 with eight home runs and 18 RBI through 55 games but has collected only nine hits over his last 53 at-bats (.170), while striking out 18 times.

Diamondbacks | Arizona resting two starters

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 10:26:23 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Jean Segura and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Sunday, June 5. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at second base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has only three hits in his last 13 games and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Herrmann performed well in May but has gone hitless in his last five games. Owners in daily fantasy leagues likely will be able to find better options to use in their lineups and can pass on Herrmann.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, Welington Castillo sitting

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:54:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and C Welington Castillo are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz Sunday, May 29. 2B Phil Gosselin will start at third base and is batting second, while C Chris Herrmann will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has three hits in his last three games but has only four RBI on the season. Owners could consider using him in their lineups but should be able better options to use. Herrmann has seen more playing time this month and is hitting .413 with three home runs and 13 RBI during that span. He should be a solid starting option in most daily fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out vs. lefty

Tue, 24 May 2016 11:32:03 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, May 24. 2B Phil Gosselin is starting at third base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin doesn't do much at the plate (.250-1-4) and isn't a strong candidate to take as a deep sleeper in DFS action despite the nice position in the batting order tonight. Look elsewhere.

Diamondbacks | Yasmany Tomas sitting vs. Yankees

Wed, 18 May 2016 13:26:17 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Yasmany Tomas is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. OF Phil Gosselin is starting in left field and batting second against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gosselin has gone 14-for-51 to start 2016 and has an unimpressive .663 OPS. He is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday. Tomas is having a nice season with 23 runs, five home runs, 14 RBI and a .295/.347/.485 slash line thus far, and he should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues.
