Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is hitting in the leadoff spot against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Friday, May 1.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is likely only in the leadoff spot with Adam Eaton taking the day off. Don't take the temporary move for granted at FantasyScore, though. Johnson isn't setting the world on fire at .271 (13-for-48), but he gains value in daily games at the top of the order. Consider him a low-priced value play tonight.

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson has the day off Friday, April 17. 2B Emilio Bonifacio is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers SP David Price.
Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a bit too expensive for our taste at FantasyScore, especially since he has just four at-bats this season and will be hitting out of the nine hole against Price.

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is out of the regular lineup Tuesday, April 14, against the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is getting a night off against Indians SP Carlos Carrasco. Emilio Bonifacio ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is in the lineup and is a source of steals if he can get on, but he is not a recommended option. Other 2B like Toronto's Devon Travis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Kansas City's Omar Infante ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) may be better.

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, April 8. 2B Carlos Sanchez is starting at the keystone and batting ninth in Johnson's absence.
Fantasy Tip: This has the potential to be a platoon situation, which would severely hinder Johnson's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) seasonal value. However, any boost you receive from Johnson outside of stolen bases should really be consider a bonus. With so many games on the docket Wednesday, FantasyScore players should aim higher than Sanchez ($2,000, 4.0% of cap).

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson won the starting second base job on Sunday, April 5.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($2,000, 4% of cap) beat out Carlos Sanchez for the job, but Sanchez and Emilio Bonifacio could see some playing time as everything shakes out. Leave Johnson on the bench until he establishes some form of bat.

Chicago White Sox 2B Micah Johnson is the likely starting second baseman to open the season, and the White Sox are not worried about starting his arbitration clock early in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson could see plenty of competition at the keystone throughout the season from Carlos Sanchez, Emilio Bonifacio and Gordon Beckham, so the fact that he might start on opening day isn't saying much. He's strictly an AL-only target in deep formats there. Johnson hasn't had a single at-bat in the majors after hitting .294 with five home runs and 22 stolen bases between Class AA and AAA in 2014.
