Rays | Desmond Jennings sitting vs. Toronto

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:33:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is crawling out of the gate with a .194/.267/.269 slash line. At this stage, he is a fringe fantasy asset in all seasonal leagues and should be left to the waiver wire outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. Guyer has been the opposite with a .333/.471/.444 line through 34 plate appearances, and he is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Rays | Three Rays regulars out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:56:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Brandon Guyer is in center field and hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is starting at first and hitting sixth, and SS Tim Beckham is at the 6 and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathis doesn't instill fear in the opposition these days with decreased velocity and dominance. Guyer doesn't have much power but can be a rat on the basepaths as a deep daily sleeper. Pearce is another deep sleeper worth taking a look at, but he had only a .196 average and four home runs against lefties in 2015. Beckham is a desperation gamble.

Rays | Three Rays have day off

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:52:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Brandon Guyer is hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is cleaning up and SS Tim Beckham is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce is the only one of the three worth daily consideration. He faces David Price, but he could be worth a low-end start.

Rays | Brandon Guyer has four hits Sunday

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:29:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer came up with four hits Sunday, April 17, in a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is normally a reserve outfielder with little fantasy value, as evidenced by his 2-for-13 (.154) start to the season. It's rare when he has a game with four hits, so chalk this up as an abnormality and leave Guyer on the bench.

Rays | Corey Dickerson, Steven Souza Jr. out

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 07:42:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson and Steven Souza Jr. are not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, April 17. OF Brandon Guyer is batting second and playing right field, while 1B/OF Logan Morrison is batting sixth and serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer may be worth considering as an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy games because of his career success versus southpaws. Morrison is 2-for-29 with 14 strikeouts to start the season and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Rays | Pair of Tampa Bay hitters sitting

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 12:01:42 -0700

Tampa Bay OF Kevin Kiermaier (head) and 2B Logan Forsythe (leg, hip) are not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks on Saturday, April 16. The pair was involved in an outfield collision on Friday, April 15, and will be replaced by OF Brandon Guyer and SS Tim Beckham, respectively. Guyer will bat leadoff, while Beckham will hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: There is still no official timetable on Kiermaier or Forsythe, although it sounds as if the latter has a decent shot at playing Sunday. Guyer is a reasonable low-cost option in DFS for this game as he has enjoyed a relative amount of success against southpaws in his career. Beckham could be ignored in virtually all formats.

Rays | Three Tampa regulars out

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:26:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Chris Sale Friday, April 15. OF Steven Souza moves to designated hitter, OF Brandon Guyer is in right field and hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is at first and hitting cleanup and SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison and Miller are both off to terrible starts, and you should consider benching them until they turn it around in traditional formats. Guyer and Pearce have favorable lineups spots tonight but are tough to rely on in daily formats while facing a tough lefty in Sale. Beckham should be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Rays | Steven Souza sitting vs. Tribe

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:33:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. OF Brandon Guyer draws the start in right field and is batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is useful for his speed in the deepest of AL leagues and daily formats, but he draws a tough matchup against Carrasco and the Indians tonight. It's probably best to look for other options.

Rays | Corey Dickerson out of lineup

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 07:29:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 6, against Toronto Blue Jays left-handed SP J.A. Happ. OF Brandon Guyer is hitting second in his place. 1B Steve Pearce is hitting cleanup in place of 1B Logan Morrison, and SS Tim Beckham draws a spot start hitting eighth for SS Brad Miller.

Fantasy Tip: If Beckham's name looks familiar, it's because it was one of the team's top prospects a few years ago that has yet to put it all together. He's a watch list player in AL-only leagues. Pearce is in a spot to perform if his DFS price is right.

Rays | Logan Forsythe could bat leadoff

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 17:23:19 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Logan Forsythe went 3-for-3 out of the leadoff spot against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, March 10, and the team could use him as a leadoff hitter during the regular season if he shows that he is comfortable in the role. OFs Desmond Jennings, Kevin Kiermaier and Brandon Guyer and SS Brad Miller are other candidates to bat first, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Forsythe has hit leadoff 21 times in his MLB career and Cash said he could wind up with an additional 75 plate appearances if he is moved to the No. 1 spot in the batting order on a full-time basis. The 29-year-old had a career year in 2015, hitting .281 with 17 home runs, 68 RBIs and nine steals in 153 games.
