Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:57:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has had some big games this year, but most nights, there are players available at FantasyScore with more upside for the same price.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:54:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Drew ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been an all-or-nothing option at FantasyScore this season, and that isn't going to change between now and the end of the year.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:44:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) should be back in the lineup sooner rather than later, but continue to check on his status before plugging him into your lineup at FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:57:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It was Severino's ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) second win of the season, and the rookie owns a 2.17 ERA through his five starts. Seasonal owners should expect a hiccup or two down the stretch, but Severino has looked the part of a difference maker. He should be owned in all seasonal leagues and started with confidence in favorable matchups at FantasyScore.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is still dealing with an injury and there is no timetable for his return. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has one hit and one RBI in his last four games and may not be the best option for owner on FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:43:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) should return to the lineup when the team plays in an American League park and will be a solid starting option.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) said the deep bone bruise in his right leg is not improving and has made it difficult for him to run. "It's not as good as I would have hoped," he said. "Running is still a big struggle. I can't run. It's just as simple as that. It's very frustrating." He mentioned that the injury does not prevent him from doing most daily tasks but he is unable to do a 90-foot sprint.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to play again but the Yankees are unlikely to place him on the disabled list because rosters will be expanded in a few days. He is dealing with a great deal of inflammation in the leg and the only way for it to improve is getting more rest. Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will be the club's primary first baseman while Teixeira is out.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:23:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is sitting at 79 RBI for the season, and is set to top 80 for the fourth time in his career and first time since 2009. He has also reached 20 home runs this year for the eighth consecutive campaign. FantasyScore owners can turn to McCann in favorable matchups with confidence, and he remains one of the safest backstop bets in fantasy heading into the 2016 season.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:18:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Braves got to Tanaka ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) early and scored two runs in the first inning, so it was nice to see him bounce back and allow just a single run over his final six innings. This was a game he should have won, though, so his recent up-and-down run should still be viewed as in tact. Be careful with Tanaka's matchups, especially at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:13:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gregorius ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) owns a .304/.333/.415 slash line since the All-Star break, and he has emerged as a solid contributor at the bottom of the lineup for New York. He has value in deep mixed leagues, and there is upside at FantasyScore. Just be a little selective with when you call his number.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup. Teixeira said his leg is not feeling as good as he would hope and expects to undergo more tests.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup, so owners should monitor the injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only three hits in his last seven games and is not the best option on FantasyScore.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:16:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) only missed one game, and he is only dealing with a bruised hip. He has really struggled of late with a.258/.293/.398 slash line over his past 22 games, so there is an added degree of risk starting him at FantasyScore. Still, it isn't a daunting matchup.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 08:13:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is questionable Friday and is a midrange option on FantasyScore if he can go.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:52:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Judge is the No. 1 hitting prospect in the system. He has 60 runs, 20 home runs, 70 RBI and a .262/.337/.469 slash line across two levels this season. He is just 23, though, and has 131 strikeouts this season, so there is still room for growth. He is worth monitoring in all keeper/dynasty formats and is even worth ownership in some of the deep ones.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:28:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't race to the waiver wire to add the second baseman. He has posted a .269/.360/.396 slash line through 113 games at Class AAA, and there is no telling how frequently he'll play. Reserve Refsnyer for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, but he could prove to be a viable value play occasionally at FantasyScore.
