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 | Prince Fielder, Mitch Moreland starting

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:15:38 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Tuesday, June 21, and is batting sixth. 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder has been more successful at the plate in June and has at five hits and three RBI in his last six games. Moreland is hitting .313 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days. Both players should be decent options for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland is on a bit of a hot streak and is batting .333 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days. Moreland can be a sleeper option for owners in 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 | Prince Fielder expected to play first base

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 18:08:04 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B/DH Prince Fielder is expected to start at first base versus the Oakland Athletics Thursday, June 16. The team will play an interleague series versus the St. Louis Cardinals in a National League stadium this weekend, so the club is looking to get Fielder extra time in the field since there won't be a DH.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder has only played in three games at first base this season but should qualify as a first baseman in all fantasy leagues after playing 18 games there in 2015. He is batting .304 with two home runs and three RBI over the past week after a slow start at the plate this year.

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 | Prince Fielder goes yard Thursday

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 15:45:33 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder went 1-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season Thursday, June 9, opposite the Houston Astros. The solo homer produced his only RBI and run scored of the ballgame.

Fantasy Tip: Remarkably, this was only Fielder's second long ball since April 19. Clearly, he's been an absolute disaster for owners in 2016, just one year after ironically winning the Comeback Player of the Year award. With today's performance, the 32-year-old slugger now owns a disgusting .193/.265/.302 slash line. Hopefully today's performance can vault him on a run.

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 | Prince Fielder has successful return

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 20:12:50 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder had two hits and an RBI in his return to the lineup against the Houston Astros Monday, June 6. He hit sixth, the lowest he has been in the batting order in his three seasons in Texas, and he's now hitting .193 with three home runs and 29 RBI in 54 games.

Fantasy Tip: It's a positive, but it doesn't change the fact that Fielder has been a huge disappointment after a bounceback year in 2015. His power is virtually non-existent, and he could continue to lose more playing time with Jurickson Profar on fire. In shallow leagues, Fielder doesn't have much use, and he's not helping owners in deeper leagues on the bench, either.

Rangers | Prince Fielder starting at first

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 14:42:27 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will start at first base against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Monday, June 6, and is batting sixth in the lineup. 1B Mitch Moreland will be on the bench for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder returns to the lineup after being benched for the last two games since he is hitting only .187 this season and has only one hit in his last 15 at-bats. Owners in daily fantasy leagues probably should avoid Fielder until he is more productive at the plate.
