Rangers | Ian Desmond, Jurickson Profar out

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:58:36 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond and 2B Jurickson Profar are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, June 22. OF Ryan Rua will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .310 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and is a sleeper starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Moreland is hitting .316 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in some daily fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Bobby Wilson out Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 11:07:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Saturday, June 18. 1B/DH Prince Fielder will play first base and bat fifth, INF Jurickson Profar will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder is starting at first base because the game is taking place in a National League stadium, which means the DH is not in effect. Profar is batting .412 in 51 at-bats versus right-handed pitching this year and should be viewed as a viable option in all fantasy formats. Chirinos has four home runs and seven RBI in just 28 at-bats this year and makes an excellent value play in DFS.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar, Mitch Moreland sitting

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:23:28 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Without the ability to utilize a designated hitter in the road game against the Cards, Profar and Moreland draw out of the lineup. Moreland could be looking at less playing time going forward, as Profar is going to receive semi-regular starts as long as he is producing at the dish. It is a situation to monitor, but Profar should be owned in the majority of leagues, whereas Moreland should be left to deep mixed and AL-only formats.

Rangers | Ryan Rua to start at first base

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:34:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ryan Rua will start at first base against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Tuesday, June 14, and is batting fourth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth. 1B Mitch Moreland is on the bench against the left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .314 with three home runs and seven RBI in 11 games this month and has four hits in his last four games. He should be used in AL-only leagues as long as he receives solid playing time and should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup. Fielder has been improving at the plate and can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Owners in standard leagues should continue to stay away from Fielder for now.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland hits two home runs

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 06:07:03 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland went 2-for-4 with two home runs and two RBI against the Seattle Mariners Friday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland was on a bit of a cold streak earlier in the month but has five hits and three RBI in his last three games. Moreland has been receiving solid playing time this season and could be an option in daily fantasy leagues when he has a favorable matchup.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar with a day off

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 14:28:52 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. 1B Mitch Moreland returns to first base and is batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Doug Fister. Also, 2B Rougned Odor is back in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has been dynamite since being called up for the Rangers, hitting .380 with two home runs and three RBI. He's had a hit in each of the 11 games he's played since May 27 and should continue to be a lineup fixture moving forward. Moreland is in a bad slump that has seen his average fall to .206 on the season. He can't be trusted in daily or most mixed leagues right now, especially since he could continue to lose valuable playing time.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar at 1B Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:59:09 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is starting at first base and is hitting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, June 7. 1B Prince Fielder is the designated hitter and is batting sixth. 1B Mitch Moreland is on the bench for the second straight day.

Fantasy Tip: Profar's value is soaring as he's done nothing but hit since being called up. The former top prospect in baseball should be owned everywhere, and his value could be on the rise if he gains eligibility at first base. Fielder had two hits last night but has struggled mightily, and he and Moreland could wind up in a platoon at first or DH. Act accordingly with them.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland having rough season

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 16:23:16 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is hitting just .206 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 51 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland was benched in favor of the struggling Prince Fielder Monday, so the two struggling first basemen could platoon for the time being. Moreland had a career year in 2015 with 23 long balls, 85 RBI and a .278 average, but he hasn't been able to replicate that production. For now, he's nothing more than corner infield depth in AL-only affairs.
