New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Monday, July 25. 2B Rob Refsnyder is starting in left field and is hitting second, while C Austin Romine is behind the plate and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Neither Refsnyder nor Romine are attractive to those in DFS action this evening. Refsnyder is more worth your time if you're going out on a limb for a sleeper while hitting second, but keep in mind he's batting just .255 on the year with no homers and 10 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: All three are low-end daily options that don't have much appeal, but Refsnyder is the most attractive as a deep sleeper because of his position high in the batting order.
