Tigers | Rajai Davis receives another start

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:25:57 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is starting in left field and hitting ninth in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is getting the nod again since Victor Martinez (knee) is taking another day off. Despite hitting a home run Wednesday, Davis loses some fantasy appeal by dropping to the ninth spot. He also hit only .247 with four home runs in 312 at-bats against right-handers in 2014.

Tigers | Rajai Davis starting again

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:18:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is starting in center field and hitting leadoff for the second straight day against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Francisco Liriano Wednesday, April 15. OF Anthony Gose will start on the bench again.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is expected to start against lefties this year while in a platoon with Gose. Davis should be in consideration for a FantasyScore lineup spot today after hitting .356 with four of his eight home runs against lefties in 2014. He also has three stolen bases already this year.

Tigers | Rajai Davis draws start vs. righty

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:43:34 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Tuesday, April 14, with OF Anthony Gose receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has seen his fantasy value drop because he's on the weak end of a platoon in center field with Gose, who has played well to start the year. However, Davis is a sneaky sleeper play at FantasyScore today against Burnett, who allows plenty of stolen bases.

Tigers | Rajai Davis sitting Wednesday

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 08:55:37 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Rajai Davis is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid the speedster on FantasyScore Wednesday. His replacement, Anthony Gose ($3,900, 7.8% of your cap) is a decent low-end flyer.

Tigers | Detroit's leadoff options

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 10:27:23 -0800

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is expected to bat leadoff this year against right-handed pitchers, with OF Rajai Davis in the leadoff spot against lefties.

Fantasy Tip: Kinsler is no longer an option in the first couple of rounds of fantasy drafts, but he remains a very consistent top-level option at the keystone. Davis is a late-round target for stolen bases, but be aware that he is likely to lose some playing time to Anthony Gose eventually.

Tigers | Anthony Gose the favorite in CF?

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:06:18 -0800

Detroit Tigers OF Anthony Gose could be the favorite to start in center field this year over OF Rajai Davis, but the Tigers are likely to go with a platoon at the position. Gose must prove he can hit left-handers (career .208/.246/.267 slash line against southpaws) to have the everyday role. Davis hit .282/.320/.401 last year and has stolen at least 30 bases in every year since 2009.

Fantasy Tip: Because Gose and Davis will likely cannabilize each other's playing time, at least to start the season, they're both no more than fourth or fifth outfielders in deep mixed leagues for their stolen base abilities. If one of them secures a job outright, though, we'll likely see their draft stock rise as a late-round SB target.

Tigers | Rajai Davis fully healthy

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 15:14:25 -0800

Detroit Tigers Rajai Davis (groin) is fully recovered from his groin injury.

Fantasy Tip: Davis' biggest fantasy appeal will continue to be his speed, and he is worth a look in the final stages of drafts. There will likely be a platoon in center field with Anthony Gose, though, which limits the upside of both outfielders.
