Giants | Hunter Pence moved down

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:40:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence is being moved to sixth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart Friday, April 22. As a result, 3B Matt Duffy is hitting third before C Buster Posey.

Fantasy Tip: Pence isn't lighting the world on fire but does have two home runs and 11 RBI on the year despite hitting .230. Duffy is in a similar spot as Pence, so the shakeup is an attempt to get both going. It could work against Cosart, who is sporting a 6.10 ERA in two starts this year. Both Duffy and Pence are worth a look as contrarian plays tonight in DFS action.

Giants | Matt Duffy working on mechanics

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 16:54:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy is working on his mechanics while taking the night off Monday, April 18. Duffy thinks he's rushing the "load" part of his swing.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy is hitting just .204 (9-for-52) with two home runs and eight RBI on the early season. It was expected that Duffy would regress a bit at the plate after an impressive .295/.334/.428 slash line with 12 home runs last year, but he should bounce back after his tough start eventually. However, Duffy could struggle to hit double-digit home runs again.

Giants | Matt Duffy sitting vs. Arizona

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 15:33:46 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 18. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is playing third base and batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy is off to a 9-for-52 start with a .531 OPS, so a day off should help the youngster. Duffy is capable of chipping in across all categories, and he is a serviceable option as a starter in the majority of seasonal leagues. Tomlinson is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Monday, but there is extremely limited upside given his career .389 slugging percentage.

Giants | Matt Duffy belts second homer

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 14:22:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy hit his second home run of the season Wednesday, April 6, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He finished the game 1-for-4 with one run scored and one RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy has been hot out of the gate after some people were saying he overachieved last year as a rookie. Not only does he have two home runs, but he's also leading the Giants with six RBI. In the process, he's proving he's legitimate and is looking like a fine option in most formats right now.

Giants | Denard Span has big opener

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 16:10:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span homered and drove in five runs in the Giants' opening day win over the Milwaukee Brewers Monday, April 4. 3B Matt Duffy also added a home run and four RBI Monday. Span went 2-for-4 in the game and scored twice.

Fantasy Tip: You couldn't have asked for a better start if you own Span or Duffy. Span is a solid option for outfield depth in deep mixed leagues. He's helpful for his average and should score plenty of runs setting the table in SF. Duffy will remain valuable as corner infield insurance, but he's expected to take a step back at the plate in 2016.

Giants | Matt Duffy collects three hits

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 01:18:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy had three hits, including a two-run homer, in the team's 5-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) carries a .355 average in the past week, and he appears to be the long-term solution at third base for San Francisco. He isn't a big source of power yet, but Duffy projects as one of the better third basemen in the NL for 2016.

Giants | Matt Duffy has historic night

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 23:53:41 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy had three hits and stole second Thursday, Sept. 24, in a 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres. Duffy became the third rookie in franchise history with 70 runs scored, 70 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) didn't even play a full season and look at the numbers he put up. It has been a great season for the Giants rookie, who could be a cornerstone at third for years to come.

Giants | Matt Duffy picking it up defensively

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 18:32:55 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy has picked up his defense at third base to complement his offensive productivity. He ranks fifth among National League third base in fielding percentage, and is higher in other modern metrics.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is playing regularly, and he is starting to make Frisco fans forget about Pablo Sandoval, who moved on to the Boston Red Sox in the offseason.

Giants | Matt Duffy continues hitting

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 04:29:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy had three hits in his team's 8-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, July 11, giving him seven hits in his past two games.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a .309 average in 16 games at the No. 3 spot in the order. He has definitely entrenched himself as the starting third baseman for the Giants and a solid play in FantasyScore against righties (.323 average).

Giants | Matt Duffy not starting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:29:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Washington Nationals. 3B Ehire Adrianza is starting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is getting a day off after six straight games at third base this week. Adrianza carries little track record and therefore should be avoided until one is established.
