Athletics | Coco Crisp still out of the lineup

Fri, 06 May 2016 12:15:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (heel) is not in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp has been nursing a heel injury and will miss his third straight game Friday. Billy Butler has been filling in as the designated hitter with Crisp out, but both hitters are struggling to start the season. Butler is 8-for-37 (.216) and Crisp is 15-for-72 (.208), and neither are viable options outside of AL-only formats.

Athletics | Coco Crisp has heel issue

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:20:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (heel) is dealing with a heel issue recently and is seeing a doctor Wednesday, May 4, according to manager Bob Melvin. However, Crisp could be available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like a minor ailment, but with the 36-year-old injury-prone outfielder, you can't be totally sure. Crisp is hitting only .208 (15-for-72) with three home runs and eight RBI, and he's really only useful as outfield depth in AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Josh Phegley draws into lineup

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:40:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and is hitting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Tuesday, May 3. OF Coco Crisp will start on the bench. C Stephen Vogt is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: You could certainly do worst than Phegley if you're looking for low-priced catching options in DFS action, but keep in mind the A's backup catcher hit only .220 with four of his nine home runs against right-handers in 2015.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie takes a seat

Mon, 02 May 2016 14:27:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 2. 2B/OF Chris Coghlan shifts to second base and is batting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns. OF Mark Canha is playing third base and hitting seventh. Also, OF Coco Crisp moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan has four home runs and 10 RBI in just 75 at-bats but is hitting .160 on the year. He's a sleeper pick in daily formats if you're looking to save a little money. Canha and Crisp could also project as fine value plays in DFS action tonight against Karns. Canha is hitting .264 with 14 of his 19 career home runs against right-handers.

Athletics | Coco Crisp goes deep

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:21:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp went 2-for-3 with one home run and two RBI against the Houston Astros Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp has been inconsistent at the plate so far this season but has three hits and three RBI over the last two games. Crisp should be in the starting lineup most nights but is not a strong fantasy option at this point.

Athletics | Billy Burns, Stephen Vogt out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:53:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns and C Stephen Vogt are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. OF Coco Crisp is in center field and hitting leadoff, C Josh Phegley is catching and batting eighth, while 1B Billy Butler is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is barely hitting over .200 in 54 at-bats this year, so he remains a low-end outfield consideration for DFS despite hitting atop the lineup. Phegley hit just .220 with four home runs against righties last year and isn't all that attractive, either. Butler is in there because he sports a .405 average (34-for-84) with two home runs and 15 RBI against Verlander in his career. He's a sneaky under-the-radar value play tonight.

Athletics | Coco Crisp out of the lineup

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 09:12:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Sunday, April 24. OF Mark Canha will serve as the designated hitter and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Canha has recorded two home runs and four RBI in his last three games but is still hitting only .182 this season. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider using Canha in their lineups, but he is not a great option in most leagues.

Athletics | Coco Crisp the DH Friday

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 11:51:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday, April 22. 1B Billy Butler remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Butler has been the odd-man out more often than not in the early going after hitting just .190 (4-for-21 with no homers) to start. He's strictly a bench option in AL leagues now. Crisp (.195) hasn't started off hot himself and faces a hot Sanchez tonight. Crisp is a low-end outfield play in daily games.

Athletics | Coco Crisp, Billy Butler still out

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:51:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp and 1B Billy Butler remain out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 20. OF Billy Burns remains the leadoff man and is in center, while OF Chris Coghlan is at second base and is hitting second against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi. 2B Jed Lowrie is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp (.158) and Butler (.150) are both trending downward after slow starts to the year. Burns is a younger version of Crisp with plenty of speed, and he's a fine daily pick against Eovaldi tonight. Coghlan hits righties much better in his career and could be worth the flyer as a deep sleeper in the two-hole. Lowrie is coming off a four-hit game. Ride him while he's hot.

Athletics | Coco Crisp mired in a tailspin

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 23:17:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp was hitless in two at-bats Tuesday, April 19, against the New York Yankees to drop his average to .158. He is hitless in each of his past 15 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp cannot be trusted in any fantasy format or DFS play until he gets untracked. But reserve him in AL-only play, do not drop him just yet.
