Tigers | Detroit resting two starters

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:38:22 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins and OF Cameron Maybin are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, July 24. 3B Mike Aviles will start in right field and is batting seventh. SS Andrew Romine will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles is hitting .250 over the last seven days but has not recorded an RBI in his last 19 games. Owners should be able to find better options to use. Romine is hitting only .227 in limited playing time this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Tigers | Tyler Collins back in the lineup

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:44:31 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins (neck) is starting in right field and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jacob Turner Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Collins has some upside in the potent Detroit lineup, but he's struggled thus far in 2016 with a 5-for-31 run at the dish. View Collins as a fringe starter in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues until J.D. Martinez returns from his elbow injury. And Collins isn't the worst option in daily contests among the low-priced fliers.

Tigers | Tyler Collins scratched vs. Twins

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:48:17 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins (neck) was scratched because of neck spasms Wednesday, July 20. INF/OF Mike Aviles will start in right field against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Aviles to hit in the lower portion of the lineup, and he's a low-end fantasy option in all formats Wednesday. Make sure to remove Collins from all starting lineups.

Tigers | James McCann, Tyler Collins sitting

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:47:51 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann and OF Tyler Collins are not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. INF/OF Mike Aviles is starting in right field and batting seventh, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Monday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is just 7-for-37 in July and should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Saltalamacchia is a potential flier in daily contests Monday, but he's got very little seasonal value. Aviles remains a viable depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, while Collins also has fleeting value in those deep settings.

Tigers | James McCann resting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:28:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is out of the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Sunday, July 17. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia will bat eighth and start behind the plate. In addition, OF Justin Upton is batting sixth and playing left field, with OF Tyler Collins hitting seventh and starting in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia and Upton haven't been hitting enough recently to warrant starting in DFS. Collins is 3-for-8 in his career against Ventura but is only batting .148 through 27 at-bats in 2016, making him nothing more than an inexpensive flier option.

Tigers | Justin Upton on bereavement list

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:32:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Justin Upton was placed on the bereavement list Thursday, July 14. OF Tyler Collins is starting in left field and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Year 1 in Detroit has been unkind to Upton and his fantasy owners. There is some buy-low appeal, but don't be surprised if the 28-year-old outfield continues to struggle. He currently sits with an underwhelming .235/.289/.381 slash line. Collins is a low-end fantasy option in all fantasy formats and shouldn't receive much playing time when Upton returns.

Tigers | Daniel Norris recalled by Detroit

Wed, 11 May 2016 10:41:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris was recalled from Class AAA Toledo Wednesday, May 11. In a corresponding move, OF Tyler Collins was optioned.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what Norris' role will be in Detroit, but Mike Pelfrey's (6.23 ERA) rotation spot could be in jeopardy. The 23-year-old Norris was struggling in the minors in two different stops with an 8.44 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 21 1/3 innings over six starts. He had a tumultuous year in 2015 and was diagnosed with cancer. The strikeout upside is there if he can improve his control and limit the long ball. He's a speculative add in AL-only leagues for now.

Tigers | Tyler Collins recalled from Toledo

Mon, 09 May 2016 12:17:08 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Tyler Collins was recalled from Class AAA Toledo Monday, May 9. In a corresponding move, SP Buck Farmer was optioned to Toledo.

Fantasy Tip: Collins is a depth outfielder for the Tigers and a low-end fantasy option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. He is 2-for-20 to start 2016 and has a career .250/.295/.390 slash line.

Tigers | Anthony Gose not starting

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:56:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Monday, April 25. OF Tyler Collins will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Collins has only two hits in 16 at-bats this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Tigers | Anthony Gose, Saltalamacchia sitting

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:13:40 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Tyler Collins is starting in center field and batting seventh, while C Bobby Wilson is behind the dish and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Collins and Wilson are at the bottom of the barrel in terms of daily options to consider Friday night. That's two straight games Gose has been on the bench against right-handers, so his playing time could be in jeopardy moving forward. After all, Gose is off to a .200 (8-for-40) start with no stolen bases in one attempt.
