Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks batting cleanup

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:07:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field and batting fourth against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Tuesday, July 5. Arizona INF/OF Phil Gosselin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks owns a .563 slugging percentage against southpaws this season, and he is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Tuesday. However, his seasonal value is tied to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Gosselin's playing time projects to dwindle once Arizona is healthy, and his .263/.315/.347 slash line doesn't exactly move the fantasy needle.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke placed on DL

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 10:27:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 3, because of a left oblique strain. The team also activated OF Rickie Weeks from the bereavement list.

Fantasy Tip: The Diamondbacks hope Greinke will be able to return shortly after the All-Star break, so it does not appear like he is dealing with a serious injury. Zack Godley likely will be recalled from the minor leagues to take his spot in the rotation. Godley has gone 4-6 with a 3.68 ERA in 12 starts for Class AAA Reno and would not be a strong fantasy option. Weeks does not have much value outside NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks to bereavement list

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 17:46:22 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks was placed on the bereavement list Thursday, June 30. A corresponding move will be made by the team Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old veteran has a .245/.312/.439 line this year and isn't really an ideal option for most fantasy leagues. In his absence, Peter O'Brien and Brandon Drury will get an uptick in playing time, but neither is worth going after at this point in time.

Diamondbacks | Peter O'Brien out again

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:00:20 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Peter O'Brien is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 27. OF Rickie Weeks is starting in left field again and is batting fifth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez.

Fantasy Tip: O'Brien and Weeks are splitting time in left field. O'Brien has much more fantasy upside because of his elite power. Weeks is hitting .258 (24-for-93) with four home runs and 10 RBI, and he's a low-end DFS pick when he's starting for the Snakes.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb back in lineup

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:19:18 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is in the lineup Sunday, June 26, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis and will bat fourth. OF Rickie Weeks will start in place of Peter O'Brien in left and hit fifth, while C Chris Herrmann will be behind the plate in place of C Welington Castillo and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Lamb plays primarily against right-handers and has been mashing them for the better part of the season, hitting .310 with 12 homers and 39 RBI in 197 at-bats, although he is only 1-for-12 in his career against Bettis. Weeks is 2-for-2 versus the Rockies' right-hander, but he's a risky bet in any format. Herrmann has been exceptional whenever he's received a chance to play this year and makes for a solid DFS play today as well as a great fill-in for any starting fantasy catcher around the league that is getting the day off.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks hitting cleanup

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 10:05:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: With a .935 OPS against left-handed hurlers this season, Weeks is a viable low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday. He isn't receiving enough playing time to be anything more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only seasonal leagues.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb, David Peralta out vs. lefty

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:15:00 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb and OF David Peralta are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Clayton Kershaw Wednesday, June 15. 3B Brandon Drury is starting at third base and is hitting second, while OF Rickie Weeks draws into left field and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Against the tough lefty, Lamb and Peralta receive a day off. Even though Drury and Weeks both are in prime lineup spots, not many folks will be fond of them in daily leagues because of the matchup against the toughest pitcher in baseball. You'd be wise to look elsewhere.

Diamondbacks | Two D-Backs sit

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:41:26 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Welington Castillo and OF Michael Bourn are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8. OF Rickie Weeks is hitting fifth and C Chris Herrmann hits sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks is pretty "meh" as a DFS option with his .231-2-7 line. Herrmann is a solid lower-middle streamer today against Jake Odorizzi.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks gets start at DH

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:15:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth Wednesday, June 1, against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: The D-backs have two games in an American League park beginning this evening, and they're choosing to roll with the veteran Weeks as their extra hitter in the first contest. However, he doesn't really have potential to be a quality sleeper play, as he's hitting just .226 in limited action this season.

Diamondbacks | Rickie Weeks in cleanup spot

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:52:16 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Rickie Weeks is hitting cleanup and playing left field against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Weeks is likely forgotten in most fantasy formats, but you can't ignore his opportunity to drive in runs in the middle of the Arizona lineup against a hittable pitcher tonight. Consider Weeks a low-priced sleeper considering in daily setups.
