Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey posts quality start

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 20:16:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three earned runs, six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a win and quality start Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has lasted six or more innings in seven straight outings, and he has won each of his past four decisions dating back to July 9. With seven straight quality starts Dickey is a must-play in FantasyScore again, especially when he is at home.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey on nice run

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 10:12:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey has allowed three earned runs or less in 13 straight starts and has allowed two runs or fewer in his last six starts. He's 6-10 with a 3.93 ERA on the season and will be facing the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: The A's have been pretty bad against right-handed pitchers for most of the season, meaning Dickey ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) should be a strong FantasyScore option the way he's been pitching of late. Dickey has also been stronger at the hitter-friendly Rogers Centre this year with an ERA of 3.22 compared to 4.76 on the road.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey stays strong

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:55:28 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey picked up the win Wednesday, July 29, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Dickey pitched eight full innings, giving up seven hits and two unearned runs, while striking out four.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has gone at least six innings in four consecutive starts, while allowing two runs or fewer in each. Dickey's low strikeout rates keep his ceiling low, but he's been a safe FantasyScore option of late.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey turning it around

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 20:10:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is scheduled to face the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, July 29, in a home start. He has allowed three or fewer runs in nine of his past 10 outings.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is 3-3 with a 3.95 ERA in 10 outings at home with a .198 opponent batting average, and 1-7 with a 5.14 ERA in 10 outings on the road with a .298 opponent batting average. Needless to say, he should only be used in FantasyScore when pitching at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey goes 8-plus

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 18:43:43 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) hasn't allowed more than two runs in three consecutive starts. The risk will always be there for the knuckleballer, but Dickey does have upside in the right matchups.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison scratched, Dickey starting

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 07:46:26 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison (illness) was scratched from his start Thursday, July 23, due to flu-like symptoms. SP R.A. Dickey will face the Oakland Athletics in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has pitched better after two brutal months to begin the season. He has a 3.49 ERA since the beginning of June. The A's aren't a bad matchup, and Dickey is at a price where you can roll the dice with him as a low-end second SP on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey not getting support

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 15:16:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey remains winless in five starts since June 18, after taking a no decision Saturday, July 18, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Blue Jays have scored two runs or fewer in 11 of Dickey's 19 starts this season, including each of his past five.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his last eight starts. FantasyScore owners can almost always find options with more upside than Dickey.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey winless on the road

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:07:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is scheduled to start Thursday, July 9, against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. He enters play 0-6 with a 6.04 ERA in eight road starts, and the opposition is hitting .337 against him in those games.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) has actually been pretty efficient at home, but FantasyScore players need to avoid him like the plague when he is south of the border.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey cannot solve Boston

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:12:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three runs and six hits over six innings in a loss against the Boston Red Sox Monday, June 29. He fell to 0-3 with a 5.76 ERA in four outings against the Red Sox this season.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) was a little better Monday, but he is still 3-8 with a 4.85 ERA overall this season. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he starts to show some consistency.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey decent in loss

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:20:56 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three earned runs, eight hits and three walks over seven innings in a loss Tuesday, June 23, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) has actually been a little better lately, going 1-2 with a 3.09 ERA in five starts in the month of June. Still, he is winless in five decisions over seven starts on the road and shouldn't be touched in FantasyScore when he is away from Rogers Centre.
