Giants | Brandon Crawford not starting Monday

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 15:14:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (rest) is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 27. SS Ramiro Pena is starting in his place at shortstop and batting seventh versus Oakland Athletics SP Daniel Mengden.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Crawford is simply getting a night off. Pena interestingly has 10 hits in his first 25 at-bats this season as a part-timer, but having not done anything of note since first coming up in 2009, he's someone that shouldn't even be an option for daily formats tonight.

Giants | Brandon Crawford moves up in order

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:55:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is hitting third against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Wednesday, June 15, with 1B Brandon Belt (ankle) not playing.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford is quietly one of the more productive shortstops for fantasy owners, with a .268/.345/.427 slash line and six home runs and 37 RBI. Moving to the third spot gives him more daily fantasy value with the opportunity to drive in more runs in the middle of the order. He's a fine addition to any fantasy lineup in the matinee.

Giants | Three RBIs for Brandon Crawford

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 05:56:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford drove in three runs Monday, June 13, in an 11-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford's power may be off a bit as the third month of the season is midway through, but a .267-6-36 line for the season isn't bad. Crawford has 58 hits and is worth the play in DFS and regular formats.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out of the lineup

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 13:03:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 1. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford is off to a solid start to 2016 with 21 runs, six home runs, 29 RBI, three stolen bases and a .257/.332/.421 slash line and is a viable starter at the 6 in all fantasy formats. Tomlinson has flier appeal in daily contests Wednesday because of his respectable .309 career batting average but batting in front of the pitcher limits his already low upside.

Giants | Brandon Crawford logs two hits, five RBI

Tue, 17 May 2016 22:58:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford went 2-for-3 with his fifth home run of the season Tuesday, May 17, against the San Diego Padres. He finished the night with a run scored and five RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford's been underwhelming this year after his breakout campaign in 2015, but considering he only had one RBI in his last seven, perhaps this is the performance that ignites his season. He can still be one of the better shortstops for fantasy from the National League.

Giants | Brandon Crawford out with neck soreness

Sat, 14 May 2016 15:46:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford (neck) is out of the lineup Saturday, May 14, with neck soreness. He could play, but the team opted to rest him. SS Kelby Tomlinson is in the lineup hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlinson is up to .319 and a perfect 4-for-4 the last week. He's a basement flyer worth consideration against Archie Bradley.

Giants | No Brandon Crawford Tuesday

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:44:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays left-handed SP J.A. Happ Tuesday, May 10. 2B Kelby Tomlinson is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford is likely just resting against the southpaw. Tomlinson is hitting .273 (12-for-44), but he has only one extra-base hit and two RBI, so he doesn't move the needle much at all in any fantasy league. Avoid him in DFS action tonight.

Giants | Brandon Crawford has solid game

Sat, 07 May 2016 21:28:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford had two hits and drove in a run Saturday, May 7, in a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford has five runs and nine hits in his past eight games, including a three-run homer in the Friday game. He has been a source of consistency in recent games and that makes him a strong player in fantasy circles. He is on track to match his .256-21-84 pace of a year ago.

Giants | Brandon Crawford leaves the yard

Fri, 06 May 2016 23:44:55 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run Friday, May 6, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford managed just six RBIs through his first 25 games, but he has driven in eight runs over his past five to re-emerge as a must-start fantasy option in NL-only leagues, most mixed formats and DFS play.

Giants | Brandon Crawford saves the day

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:33:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Brandon Crawford went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and four RBIs Monday, May 2, against the Cincinnati Reds. His three-run shot in the seventh inning helped the team come back and win.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford had managed just six RBIs to date, and he is hitting .253 overall. Fantasy owners expected a little more out of Crawford this season. However, this type of game might just be something to jump-start him heading into May.
