White Sox | Austin Jackson moves up

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:16:04 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson is batting second in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has been more productive at the plate recently and has nine hits and four RBI over the last nine games. Jackson could be a starting candidate in some daily fantasy leagues as well as deeper mixed leagues.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins has a seat

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:25:53 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with SS Tyler Saladino hitting ninth. OF Austin Jackson moved up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax has a .241-0-11 line, and his only value is relegated to AL-only leagues. Saladino is barely hitting above .200 and isn't an option against Cole Hamels in DFS.

White Sox | Jimmy Rollins resting Friday

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:09:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. SS Tyler Saladino takes his place at shortstop and is hitting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco. OF Austin Jackson moves into the two-hole as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Saladino's fantasy value is pretty much non-existent with the bat. Avoid him everywhere. Jackson has been quiet, too, hitting only .217 (20-for-92) with no home runs and eight RBI. He gains value tonight, though, with the move up the order and could be a successful sleeper pick in DFS.

White Sox | Avisail Garcia, Jimmy Rollins out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:35:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Avisail Garcia and SS Jimmy Rollins are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Jerry Sands is serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh, while SS Tyler Saladino is at the 6 and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez. Also, OF Austin Jackson moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia is losing fantasy appeal very quickly with his .146 start (7-for-48 with two home runs), and he could lose more playing time to Sands. With that said, Sands has plenty of home run pop but has his daily value capped hitting low in the order. Saladino did homer the other day but shouldn't garner much attention in any format. A-Jax has a favorable lineup spot but is hitting only .170 and remains a low-end fantasy commodity.

White Sox | Austin Jackson breaks slump

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:51:31 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson had a single to break an 0-for-12 slump at the plate Sunday, April 17, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson, a .267-9-48 with 17 steals a year ago, is hitting .194 to start the year. You may want to keep him on your bench for now while he works his way through some early-season hitting woes.

White Sox | Austin Jackson not in lineup

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:07:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. That allows OF J.B. Shuck to start in right field, and he's hitting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck has only four career home runs in his five seasons in the majors and isn't an attractive fantasy option in any format.

White Sox | Austin Jackson drives in a pair

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 21:53:15 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson had a hit with two RBIs in four at-bats Monday, April 11, against the Minnesota Twins, and he also struck out twice.

Fantasy Tip: A-Jax's stat line is a microcosm of his seasonal output, as he picks up hits, drives in runs and strikes out a ton. He is more of an AL-only fantasy option than good play in mixed leagues, and he is a decent play in DFS when he matchup is favorable.

White Sox | Austin Jackson with day off

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 09:56:15 -0700

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 7. OF J.B. Shuck gets a start in left field and is hitting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman. Also, OF Melky Cabrera is serving as the designated hitter and is in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Shuck is a dice roll as a cheap flier in daily games today with Graveman starting after dealing with the flu earlier this week. Cabrera is off to another slow start after the first two games, but he gains some intrigue with a move up the lineup.

White Sox | Austin Jackson to mostly play CF

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 07:04:17 -0800

Chicago White Sox OF Austin Jackson will mostly play center field this year, according to general manager Rick Hahn. OF Adam Eaton (shoulder) is coming off shoulder surgery and is serving as the designated hitter in spring games, although he's expected to be ready by Opening Day.

Fantasy Tip: Chicago is a nice landing spot for Jackson, but his playing time will be limited. Eaton remains the starting center fielder, and his value shouldn't change at all. Jackson is mainly appealing for his speed, but he also has decent pop. With a lack of consistent at-bats, he's probably only attractive in AL-only leagues for now.

White Sox | Austin Jackson signs

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 15:29:04 -0800

Free-agent OF Austin Jackson (Cubs) has signed a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox, worth $5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will bring an element of speed to the team with his stolen base power, and it solidifies the center field picture. Adam Eaton was starting in center prior to Jackson's signing, and Eaton will still see time. However, Jackson should be penciled in as the starter. He ranks midway down the chart in AL and mixed formats.
