Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Bobby Wilson out Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 11:07:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, June 18. 1B/DH Prince Fielder will play first base and bat fifth, INF Jurickson Profar will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder is starting at first base because the game is taking place in a National League stadium, which means the DH is not in effect. Profar is batting .412 in 51 at-bats versus right-handed pitching this year and should be viewed as a viable option in all fantasy formats. Chirinos has four home runs and seven RBI in just 28 at-bats this year and makes an excellent value play in DFS.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is batting .317 with two homers and 12 RBI in 60 at-bats and is worth considering as a value play in DFS contests today. Hoying should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option.

Rangers | Hot Bobby Wilson takes a seat

Tue, 31 May 2016 21:17:49 -0700

Texas Rangers C Bobby Wilson is hitting .526 over his past five games, but he did not play Tuesday, May 31, against the Cleveland Indians. Manager Jeff Banister said he did not want to overwork Wilson or C Bryan Holaday, who has also been hot.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson should draw back into the lineup soon, as Holaday has played three straight games. Despite his recent hot streak Wilson is still best used as a No. 2 catcher in AL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver in DFS.

Rangers | Three Texas starters sitting

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:36:39 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Jared Hoying and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, May 29. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting sixth. C Bryan Holaday will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while 2B Hanser Alberto will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .429 with one home run and three RBI against left-handed pitchers and can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Alberto and Holaday have not done much at the plate this season and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Holaday has gone 5-for-15 with one home run and four RBI in May and could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Bobby Wilson hits grand slam

Sat, 14 May 2016 22:28:20 -0700

Texas Rangers C Bobby Wilson hit his second grand slam in a week Saturday, May 14, in a 6-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Wilson is currently hitting .263.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is turning into a decent-hitting catcher for the Rangers, who fell into a hole early when top catcher Robinson Chirinos was injured. Wilson was re-acquired from the Detroit Tigers, and he is worth watching in all fantasy formats. There aren't too many solid-hitting catchers, and Wilson may be an exception.

Rangers | Bobby Wilson has huge day

Sun, 08 May 2016 14:18:08 -0700

Texas Rangers C Bobby Wilson didn't have to wait long to get back at his former team, going 3-for-4 and hitting a tie-breaking grand slam in the eighth inning in a win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, May 08. Wilson was traded from Texas to Detroit in March before returning to the Rangers in a deal for minor-league RP Chad Bell earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is 6-for-13 with a homer and five RBI in three starts since rejoining the club. At this point, it is fair to wonder if Texas will start giving him more regular at-bats in place of struggling backstop Bryan Holaday. Given the complete lack of quality fantasy catchers, Wilson needs to be on the radar of owners in deeper leagues.

Rangers | Bryan Holaday out of the lineup

Sun, 08 May 2016 09:11:07 -0700

Texas Rangers C Bryan Holaday is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, May 8. C Bobby Wilson will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has gone 3-for-7 with one RBI since being acquired by the Rangers. He could be used in two-catcher leagues, but owners in most leagues should be able to find other players to use in their lineups.

Tigers | Bobby Wilson starting against Twins

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:53:52 -0700

Detroit Tigers C Bobby Wilson is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Friday, April 29. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Saltalamacchia has eight runs, six home runs and 15 RBI to start the year, but his fantasy value is likely about to shrink with James McCann close to returning from injury. Wilson hasn't registered a hit through 10 plate appearances this season, and he owns a .201/.265/.298 slash line for his career. Avoid Wilson in all fantasy formats.
