White Sox | John Danks remains winless

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:48:20 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks (0-4) allowed six runs on nine hits over five innings in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, April 28, with two walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Danks has allowed five runs or more in all but one of his outings this season and has an earned-run average of 7.25 over 22 1/3 innings. He is not a viable pitching option in any fantasy format due to his high ERA and lack of strikeouts.

Orioles | Adam Jones tanks against John Danks

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:49:58 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones is 1-for-33 (.030) lifetime against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks, who toes the rubber Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Batter vs. pitcher splits are so subjective and don't hold a lot of weight. However, this is a large sample size, and there appears to be something the lefty does that has Jones off balance. Add in that Jones has a .196-1-5 line to open the year, and he might be one to avoid in DFS today.

Rays | Pair of Tampa Bay hitters sitting

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 12:01:42 -0700

Tampa Bay OF Kevin Kiermaier (head) and 2B Logan Forsythe (leg, hip) are not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks on Saturday, April 16. The pair was involved in an outfield collision on Friday, April 15, and will be replaced by OF Brandon Guyer and SS Tim Beckham, respectively. Guyer will bat leadoff, while Beckham will hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: There is still no official timetable on Kiermaier or Forsythe, although it sounds as if the latter has a decent shot at playing Sunday. Guyer is a reasonable low-cost option in DFS for this game as he has enjoyed a relative amount of success against southpaws in his career. Beckham could be ignored in virtually all formats.

White Sox | John Danks beat up Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 16:49:51 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks allowed eight hits and seven runs (five earned) while walking one and striking out six in five innings in a loss against the Cleveland Indians Friday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: This is all you need to know about Danks: He hasn't posted an ERA under 4.00 since 2010. He doesn't strike out many hitters, either, so he's nothing but trouble for fantasy owners. Stay away unless you're desperate for innings in AL-only leagues.

White Sox | Pale Hose announce starting rotation

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 13:18:37 -0700

Chicago White Sox SPs Chris Sale, Jose Quintana, Carlos Rodon, Mat Latos and John Danks will comprise the starting rotation to begin the season, the team announced Tuesday, March 29.

Fantasy Tip: Sale is a fantasy ace to target in the early rounds of drafts, while Quintana and Rodon are upside candidates worth middle-round selections. Latos could have a degree of bounce-back appeal, but like Danks, the fourth and fifth Chicago starters should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats.

White Sox | John Danks works six scoreless

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 23:04:19 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks scattered seven hits with a walk over six scoreless innings in a Cactus League spring start Wednesday, March 23, against the San Diego Padres and he finished with six strikeouts. C Dioner Navarro, a career .423 hitter against Danks, said he noticed Danks was tipping his pitches. The two worked together and Danks has posted two consecutive scoreless outings. "He told me exactly what I was doing. We fixed it and it hasn't been an issue since," Danks said.

Fantasy Tip: Danks appears to be ready for the regular season, and he is worth adding as a back-end fantasy rotation option in AL-only leagues.

White Sox | John Danks working on mechanics

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 15:38:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks is working to simplify his mechanics, as he wants to focus on putting the ball where he wants it to go.

Fantasy Tip: Danks will be on the lower end of most drafts following a 7-15 season. He still struck out 124 to go with 56 walks, but the win-loss number was not acceptable.

Chicago White Sox SP John Danks allowed one run on seven hits and struck out five in a complete game win over the Kansas City Royals Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Danks ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has been inconsistent all year, following a couple of strong starts with a couple of awful performances. He is a roll-of-the-dice play at FantasyScore.

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:52:42 -0700
