Giants | Matt Duffy slumping at the dish

Thu, 19 May 2016 16:06:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy has not registered a hit in his past 16 at-bats entering the game against the San Diego Padres Thursday, May 19. His batting average is down to .239.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy had a nice showing in 2015 and moved the needle across all five fantasy categories, but he has struggled in 2016 with just 18 runs, two home runs, 11 RBI, four stolen bases and a .239/.299/.340 slash line. It isn't out of the question that Duffy overachieved to a degree last year, so he is a candidate to replace in shallow leagues.

Giants | Buster Posey, Matt Duffy resting

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:41:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey and 3B Matt Duffy are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Sunday, May 15. 3B Conor Gillaspie will start at this base and is batting seventh, while C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gillaspie is batting .316 in limited playing time this season and could be a starting option in some fantasy leagues. Brown should be an option in two-catcher leagues but probably can be avoided in most standard leagues.

Giants | Matt Duffy dropped in order

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:39:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy was dropped to sixth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy is hitting .256 this month but hasn't homered since April 6, and he has two long balls on the season. So far it's proved to be an uphill battle to repeat his impressive 2015 performance, and he remains an unattractive daily selection Tuesday night, especially with the drop in the order.

Giants | Matt Duffy wins in 13th

Sat, 07 May 2016 21:24:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy hit a game-winning double in the 13th inning to give his team a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Although Duffy is 7-for-14 in his last three games, there were a couple stretches early in the season where he was hitless. Duffy has a .263-2-10 stat line at the moment, but he needs more consistency before Duffy will enter the top tier of third basemen. Right now he ranks no better than a backup in your fantasy league.

Giants | Three Giants sitting out

Wed, 04 May 2016 07:43:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy, OF Angel Pagan (hamstring) and 2B Joe Panik (groin) are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Gregor Blanco is hitting second, 3B Conor Gillaspie is hitting sixth and 2B Kelby Tomlinson hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is hitting .333 and is the only one of the trio that has some upside against Dan Straily today.

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.
