Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:21:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Although Beckham ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 4-for-11 against Buehrle in his career, the lefty is only expected to pitch two innings this afternoon, so that he can reach the 200-inning mark for the 15th consecutive year. Beckham is just 2-for-17 over the past seven days and is not a recommended option in FantasyScore today.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 07:27:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cobb will be a stash candidate to select in the late middle rounds of drafts next spring. He projects to return at some point in the middle of the season. Cobb has ample upside, as he has posted a 2.82 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and a 8.2 K/9 over his past 49 starts in the majors.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 20:30:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Cobb not returning until next August at the earliest, be can be left on waivers in seasonal leagues until later in the year.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 12:37:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Forsythe ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) suffered a bruised right foot Tuesday, Sept. 29, and it is growing increasing likely that he won't play again this season. Avoid using him in all fantasy formats.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:53:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting just .162 with two RBIs in 74 at-bats since the All-Star break and is 4-for-38 against Toronto this season. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him Saturday.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:49:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting just .167 (7-for-42) since Sept. 1. FantasyScore owners should look elsewhere for middle infield help.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 19:52:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Casali finished the year batting .238 with 10 home runs and 18 RBIs in 101 at-bats. He can be dropped in all fantasy formats.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:12:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With the Tampa Bay lineup missing a number of key cogs, there isn't a lot to be excited about from the Rays Friday. FantasyScore players could target Evan Longoria ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) because of his .344/.395/.576 slash line against southpaws this season, but otherwise, you're likely betting fading the entire lineup.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:00:52 -0700
Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays 2B Logan Forsythe (foot) was a late scratch Friday, Oct. 2, and 2B Nick Franklin draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle.
Fantasy Tip: Forsythe ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is still aiming to play again this season, but time is running out, and the setback Friday is concerning. Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) owns a .167/.223/.323 slash line this season, and he is not worth your attention at FantasyScore Friday.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 12:53:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Forsythe ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) manning the keystone defensively, there isn't as much concern about his injury. He has owned southpaws all season with a .599 slugging percentage, and Forsythe checks out as a high-end value play at FantasyScore Friday.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 12:47:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reiterating a previous tip, FantasyScore players should view Tulowitzki ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) as a viable flier Friday. In the highest scoring lineup in the league, Tulowotzki's upside and cap hit trump his potential injury limitations. Still, he is far from a safe play.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:03:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is heading into the offseason on a high note. He recorded his longest outing since May 25, and won for the third time in his last four decisions.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 12:09:52 -0700
Tampa Bay Rays 2B Logan Forsythe (foot) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. 2B Nick Franklin is starting at the keystone and batting ninth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: It isn't out of the question to replace Forsythe ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in seasonal leagues, as his injury status is up in the air at this point. Those more patient can hold, but you'll want to check back for updates. Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Thursday, and he is likely best avoided.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 12:04:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cabrera ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. Beckham ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is an ill-advised start at FantasyScore, too. Fernandez ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) presents a daunting matchup, and Beckham owns an underwhelming .216/.293/.420 slash line against right-handed hurlers this season.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 19:29:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) improved to 5-0 over his last eight starts. He is not expected to start again this season so he can be dropped in redraft leagues.
