Rays | Brad Miller will serve as DH

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 08:13:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller will serve as the designated hitter in the first game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, June 25. OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field, while SS Tim Beckham will start at shortstop and is batting sixth against Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham is hitting .231 with one home run and three RBI in limited playing time this month. Owners should be able to find better options to use.

Rays | Corey Dickerson climbs lineup

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:34:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson is batting second as the designated hitter against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Friday, June 24. SS Brad Miller is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson receives a slight boost jumping up the lineup, especially in daily contests. However, he sports an underwhelming .196/.258/.393 slash line in June and is a low-end fantasy option in all formats. His power upside is hindered by his lack of production in the other categories. Miller has been hitting second most nights, so the lineup swap just provides him with more RBI chances and likely fewer opportunities to score runs. He's still nothing more than a fringe starter in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, though.

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 08:05:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson and SS Brad Miller are out of the lineup Thursday, June 16, with SS Tim Beckham hitting sixth and OF Jaff Decker hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Decker and Beckham aren't good DFS options against lefty James Paxton.

Rays | Brad Miller sitting vs. Astros

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 07:13:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 12. SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: After a weak start, Miller has a .288/.336/.508 slash line since late April with 16 runs, five home runs, 16 RBI and four stolen bases. Those numbers play in most leagues, but he's likely best left to deep mixed and AL-only formats. Beckham is just 13-for-72 this season with a .609 OPS, so it is safe to fade him in all fantasy formats Sunday.

Rays | Two Rays sit

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:38:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Steve Pearce (elbow) and SS Brad Miller are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8. SS Taylor Motter is leading off, and 2B Tim Beckham is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Motter has a .182-2-6 line in 44 at-bats, but he has some upside at leadoff. He's a fringe DFS option against Archie Bradley. Beckham isn't much of a DFS option.

Rays | Three Tampa regulars sitting

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 15:18:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Steve Pearce (elbow), OF Corey Dickerson and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. SS Tim Beckham is starting at second base and is batting second, OF Desmond Jennings is starting in left field and hitting sixth, while SS Taylor Motter is at the 6 and is batting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce remains sidelined with an elbow issue, and his fantasy value may have already seen its peak in 2016. Beckham and Motter are light-hitting middle infielders that don't carry a ton of fantasy value. Beckham has the slight edge in daily intrigue today because he's hitting high in the order, but he remains more of a low-end desperation deep sleeper option in DFS.

Rays | Brad Miller not in lineup

Mon, 30 May 2016 14:20:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller (rest) is not in the lineup Monday, May 30. SS Taylor Motter is starting in his place at shortstop and batting second versus Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: It's simply a day off for the 26-year-old. Motter, meanwhile, has shown some promise thus far since being called up for the first time a couple weeks ago, but is far too inconsistent to implement in daily leagues at the moment.

Rays | Corey Dickerson, Brad Miller out

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:26:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Justin Nicolino Wednesday, May 25. OF Brandon Guyer is the designated and is hitting leadoff again, OF Mikie Mahtook is starting in left field and batting second and SS Taylor Motter is at the 6 and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer has been a consistent source of production of late (.314-4-10 in May) and is a fine value choice in daily game tonight against Nicolino. Mahtook did manage nine home runs and a .295 average last year and could be a successful deep sleeper given his lineup position. Motter has also earned some more playing time with two home runs in his first 13 major league at-bats. He, however, is more of a desperation low-end selection at shortstop.

Rays | Three Tampa regulars sitting

Mon, 23 May 2016 11:15:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller and OFs Desmond Jennings and Corey Dickerson are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. SS Taylor Motter is at the 6 and is hitting seventh, while OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and batting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays lose the DH playing in a National League park this week, so Dickerson could be out again tomorrow. Guyer has taken advantage of his increased opportunities this month and is batting .306 with three home runs and nine RBI. He's a fine value play in daily formats. Motter is a low-end shortstop option.

Rays | Three Rays sitting Wednesday

Wed, 18 May 2016 12:43:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller, OF Corey Dickerson and 1B Steve Pearce are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. SS Taylor Motter starts at the 6 and is hitting second, OF Brandon Guyer is the designated hitter and is hitting leadoff, while SS Tim Beckham is starting at second base and batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Motter hit his first big league homer last night but is a low-end middle infield option in daily setups, even while hitting in the two-hole. Beckham has a similar profile to Motter but is even less attractive at the bottom of the order. Guyer is your value pick of the trio, as he's been seeing starts on a regular basis and is hitting .313 with three home runs and nine RBI this month.
