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.

Giants | Matt Duffy with three more hits

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 17:17:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a 7-5 win over the Colorado Rockies Saturday, June 27, and he has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has 10 RBI and 11 runs scored during the stretch, and he has been improving every month. He has been providing great value for the price at FantasyScore, and he could have another solid game Sunday when Colorado starts Kyle Kendrick, who owns an ugly 5.96 ERA on the year.

Giants | Matt Duffy batting third vs. Friars

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:44:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy is batting third against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) receives a nice fantasy boost batting higher in the lineup, and he could stick there if he has success. Nori Akoi's (leg) move to the disabled list has shuffled up the Giants lineup. Continue to check back for lineup updates over the next few days until the San Francisco lineup becomes more permanent.

Giants | Matt Duffy swinging the bat

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 00:19:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy had two hits Wednesday, June 17, against the Seattle Mariners. Duffy is now 5 for 8 in his previous two games.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), whose average improved to .294, looks like he is settling in fairly well at third base following Casey McGehee's departure. He's swinging a decent bat now, but keep an eye on his matchups before sinking some FantasyScore money into him.

Giants | Casey McGehee to receive a start

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 14:52:06 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee will receive a start at third base during the team's series against the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend. 3B Matt Duffy will remain the starting third baseman for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee likely will be a bench player for now but could push Duffy ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) for the third base job if he plays well. McGehee should not be a fantasy option at this point but could be an option if he produces at the plate.

Giants | Matt Duffy hitting fifth against Bucs

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 11:01:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Matt Duffy is hitting fifth in the batting order against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has earned the starting third base job this year, but with everyday at-bats, his average has fallen to .278 (37-for-133), and he has only three home runs and 22 RBI. Duffy is a low-end third base commodity at FantasyScore without much power.
