Oakland Athletics 1B Brandon Moss is not in the staring lineup Friday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Tip: The A's are facing Alex Wood, a lefty, so the day off for Moss makes sense. Make sure he's not put into any of your daily lineups.

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie (finger) is in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 13, but 1B Brandon Moss is sitting.
Fantasy Tip: Lowrie will likely see plenty of rest days like yesterday now that it's known he's playing with a fractured finger. That'll limit his fantasy value significantly. Moss figures to be seeing a day off.

Oakland Athletics 1B Brandon Moss collected four hits in the team's win Tuesday, Aug. 12, after previously going 5-for-46. He has four RBIs in the first two games of the series against the Kansas City Royals after driving in only one run in the last 14 games.
Fantasy Tip: Moss appears to be over his little funk. If you were benching him because of his recent poor performance, it's probably time to get him back into your daily lineups.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick is batting second in the lineup for the first time this year Monday, Aug. 11. Manager Bob Melvin noted that Reddick is seeing the ball well at the plate and using all fields. He's batting .328 since coming off the disabled list July 22. C Stephen Vogt, who is 5-for-14 with two homers after going through an 0-for-21 slump, is hitting sixth. 1B Brandon Moss remains at cleanup despite being in a 2-for-28 funk lately.
Fantasy Tip: Reddick is red hot since the end of July. He's been a popular waiver-wire addition in recent weeks because of it. If he's still out there in your league, don't wait any longer.

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (neck) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 5, leading off and serving as the designated hitter. Also, 1B Brandon Moss is not playing, with 1B Nate Freiman starting at first base. OF Sam Fuld remains in center field, and OF Jonny Gomes is starting in left.

Oakland Athletics OF Jonny Gomes and C Stephen Vogt are expected to platoon in the lineup, with Vogt mostly playing first base and Gomes mostly playing in left field. 1B Brandon Moss is a swingman that can play both first base and the outfield.
Fantasy Tip: Since Gomes and Vogt aren't everyday players, they are useful in only AL-only leagues.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (knee) is wearing a brace on his right knee, and said it will take some getting used to. He said it doesn't impede him and has not cost him any speed. Manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday, July 23, that Reddick will see his usual playing time, particularly against right-handed pitchers, with C Stephen Vogt and 1B Brandon Moss also factoring in. "There's a way to get all three of them out there," Melvin said.

Oakland Athletics 1B Brandon Moss is taking the day off Tuesday, July 8, against a left-handed pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: Remove Moss from your daily lineups. It's probably a good thing that he's not starting against Madison Bumgarner.

Oakland Athletics 1B Brandon Moss (ankle) is back in the lineup as the designated hitter Monday, July 7.
Fantasy Tip: Put Moss back into your daily and weekly lineups ASAP.

The MRI done on Oakland Athletics 1B Brandon Moss (ankle) did not show any structural damage in his injured ankle.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Moss will be out of the lineup but this is certainly good news for him. Nate Freiman started at first base Sunday and could be an AL-only option if he continues to get starts at the positions. Alberto Callaspo and Daric Barton could also be options but probably would not have a lot of value in leagues other than AL-only.
