Astros | Mike Fiers flat again

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 00:31:33 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers saw his three-game winning streak end as he dropped to 6-4 overall on Monday, July 18. Fiers gave up six runs on five hits over 3 2/3 innings in a 7-4 loss to the Oakland Athletics. Fiers struck out five, walked two and threw two wild pitches.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to tell what's wrong with Fiers, except that he appears to have hit a snag after a decent first half. Keep Fiers sidelined until he figures out what exactly is wrong. It could be just a small slump.

Astros | Mike Fiers struggles with M's

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 21:09:36 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers allowed four runs on five hits, including three home runs, in 3 1/3 innings against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Houston jumped out to a 5-0 lead, but Fiers fell apart in the fourth, allowing three home runs within the first four batters of the inning. He left shortly thereafter, making this his shorting outing of the year -- and he's averaging less than six innings per start on the season. Fiers has been inconsistent in 2016, and a marked dip in strikeouts has taken a bite out of his value. AL-only owners can keep plugging him into their lineups, but everyone else should steer clear for now.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers has won three straight starts, and he hasn't lost in six starts dating back to May 27 while lowering his ERA from 5.20 to 4.12. He has re-emerged as a solid AL-only fantasy option and DFS play thanks to this hot streak.

Astros | Mike Fiers doesn't last long

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 21:28:23 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers was staked to an early and sizeable lead Saturday, June 25, against the Kansas City Royals. However, he allowed three runs - two earned - and nine hits with three walks over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision, as he didn't last long enough to qualify for the victory.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers entered the game 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA over his first four starts in June, but he had a rough one in this one. He can only be trusted in AL-only fantasy formats due to his 4.41 ERA and mediocre 1.35 WHIP, both of which are higher than his career averages.
