Giants | Joe Panik taking day off

Thu, 21 May 2015 10:24:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the keystone and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been surprisingly productive for the Giants this year as a utility player, driving in 16 runs. However, you should see him as a weak play Thursday afternoon against the reigning NL Cy Young.

Giants | Casey McGehee taking day off

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:15:23 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at third base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has made the most of his opportunities this year and is batting .300 (24-for-80) with a home run and a surprising 16 RBI for the Gigantes. However, he hasn't found much success against lefties, and his placement at the bottom of the order says to skip him at FantasyScore.

Giants | Matt Duffy and Casey McGehee to rotate

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:47:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Matt Duffy and 3B Casey McGehee will rotate games at third base, according to manager Bruce Bochy. "I've talked about Duffy being a super utility guy ... I'm going to mix in both out there," Bochy said. "I like Duffy when he's out there. He's also a nice weapon to have off the bench," said Bochy.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 6-for-11 with two outs and runners in scoring position this season. McGehee is just 6-for 36 in his last 11 games and is batting a paltry .175 on the season. Neither player has much value in standard season-long leagues, and both come with a high risk of posting a zero on FantasyScore.

Giants | Casey McGehee sitting out

Tue, 12 May 2015 14:02:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting a respectable .273 (18-for-66) with a home run and 10 RBI in a utility role for the Gigantes this year. However, he has very little power and a low FantasyScore ceiling while hitting at the bottom of the batting order. Look to avoid him Tuesday.

Giants | Casey McGehee still sitting

Thu, 07 May 2015 15:18:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee remains out of the lineup Thursday, May 7. 2B Matt Duffy starts again at third base and is hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren. McGehee has now sat for three straight games as he struggles at the plate in the early going.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has very little offensive upside for those at FantasyScore looking for a cheap value play, especially while hitting at the bottom of the SF lineup. Avoid him.

Giants | Casey McGehee out again

Wed, 06 May 2015 10:53:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants 3B Casey McGehee remains on the bench for the second straight day Wednesday, May 6. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at third base again and hitting eighth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: McGehee is hitting only .181 (13-for-72) on the season and could ride pine more frequently if he doesn't turn things around quickly. Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has very little offensive upside, especially hitting at the bottom of the lineup. Avoid him at FantasyScore.

Giants | Matt Duffy starts at hot corner

Tue, 05 May 2015 17:56:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SS Matt Duffy made the start at third base Tuesday, May 5, against the San Diego Padres in place of the struggling 3B Casey McGehee.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) is a decent low-end FantasyScore option, as it will not take much to live up to salary expectations while helping you save money at other more valuable positions.

Giants | Joe Panik resting Friday

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:52:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Friday, May 1. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the keystone and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .239 (11-for-46) with one home run and seven RBI, and he doesn't have a ton of offensive upside. A high lineup position makes him a low-priced sleeper, however, against Wilson.

Giants | Joe Panik resting against lefty

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:33:51 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at the keystone and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has three hits in five career at-bats against Kershaw, but we don't recommend him as a cheap option for your second base spot at FantasyScore tonight.

Giants | Joe Panik out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:52:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants 2B Joe Panik is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. 2B Matt Duffy is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Duffy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit well in a small sample size against lefties in 2014, going 12-for-30 (.400) with three RBI, but that doesn't mean you should look to him at FantasyScore against Kershaw. Go elsewhere for your second base option.
