Giants | Denard Span scratched from lineup

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:29:38 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck) has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, July 1, because of a stiff neck. OF Gregor Blanco will bat leadoff and play center field in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is hitless in 10 at-bats over the past week and is just 1-for-7 in his career versus Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller. He is not a recommended starting option in daily fantasy games.

Giants | Mac Williamson starting in right field

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:17:04 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Mac Williamson is starting in right field and is hitting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Tuesday, June 28. OF Gregor Blanco will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson shouldn't be on many owners' radars. He's hitting .263 with two home runs and four RBI in at-bats for the Gigantes. Consider him a deep sleeper for daily leagues tonight.

Giants | Gregor Blanco not starting

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:03:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola Sunday, June 26. OF Jarrett Parker will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Parker has at least one hit in six of his last eight games and is hitting .302 in June. He is not the best option available but should be considered by some daily fantasy league owners.

Giants | Three Giants take a seat

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 08:02:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt, OF Angel Pagan and OF Gregor Blanco are out of the lineup Thursday, June 23. OF Mac Williamson is hitting third, C Trevor Brown hits fifth and OF Jarrett Parker hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson is hitting .182 on the year, but he's a stud of a basement play today hitting ahead of Buster Posey, who shifted to first base. Brown is hitting .238 this month, but he has some upside for his place in the lineup against Jonathon Niese. Parker doesn't deserve much consideration against the lefty.

Giants | Mac Williamson starting in right field

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:41:37 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Mac Williamson is starting in right field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Wednesday, June 22. OF Gregor Blanco is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Williamson enters flier territory for daily contests Wednesday, but at this point, he doesn't warrant attention in seasonal leagues. Blanco has been seeing more at-bats of late with Hunter Pence out, and Blanco is a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats because of his playing time. Just don't overvalue Blanco, as his .681 OPS in June leaves a lot to be desired.

Giants | Gregor Blanco doubles his pleasure

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 20:50:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco went 3-for-4 with two walks, two doubles and three runs scored Tuesday, June 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has heated up with the weather, going 13-for-30 (.433) with two doubles, four RBIs and seven runs scored over the past eight outings to raise his batting average from .231 to .269 just since June 12. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all NL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats. He is also a strong mid-tier DFS play while running hot.

Giants | Gregor Blanco gets cortisone shot

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 16:03:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (shoulder) said he had a bad right shoulder, but received a cortisone shot Wednesday, June 15, and is feeling better now.

Fantasy Tip: The shot must have done wonders for Blanco's shoulder, as he recorded a season-high-tying three hits in Wednesday's contest. It was also his second straight multi-hit effort. Unfortunately, he usually bats towards the bottom of the lineup, thus severely limiting his potential in fantasy.

Giants | Denard Span receives a day off

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:51:49 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and is hitting leadoff against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco gains some daily fantasy intrigue hitting leadoff today, but the outfielder doesn't have much pop (zero home runs) to help much in daily games. He's a sleeper pick, though, as he'll have more opportunities to run and score runs atop the order.

Giants | Gregor Blanco in a slump

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 15:41:44 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is hitless in his last 25 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is down to .231/.308/.323 on the season with no home runs and 11 RBI, and his fantasy value remains minimal in the short term with him playing everyday due to the injuries to Angel Pagan and Hunter Pence. Blanco will lose playing time to Jarrett Parker once Pagan returns this week.

Giants | Gregor Blanco on bench vs. lefty

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:34:36 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco (rest) is not in the lineup Wednesday, June 8, versus Boston Red Sox SP David Price. OF Mac Williamson gets the start in his place and will play left field, batting eighth, while OF Jarrett Parker will slide over to right field.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has actually been pretty good against left-handed pitching, but he'll take a seat on the pine anyway for this matchup with the former AL Cy Young award winner. With Price toeing the rubber, it's difficult getting behind Williamson or Parker in daily games for tonight. Owners can do better with potential sleeper picks.
