Rickie Weeks is the cleanup hitter for the Diamondbacks and is 4-for-7 with a home run, triple, and double against the Padres' starter Christian Friedrich. For those reasons, he is a great option at OF on Friday, especially at $2,400 on FanDuel.
Fantasy Impact: Weeks has a .276 batting average this month and a .364 batting average and two home runs over the last seven days. He has hits in three of his last five games and his recent power boost has him up to fourth in the lineup. Look at his successes against Friedrich and proximity in the lineup and start him on Friday.
Rickie Weeks went 1-for-1 with a two-RBI double and a walk against the Astros on Sunday. He also scored a run on an error in the game.
Fantasy Impact: Weeks came in to pinch hit for Ackley in LF and made his limited ABs count, knocking in a couple runs on a hard-hit double, and walking as well. Weeks has had limited ABs as he's in a platoon with Ackley, and he hasn't impressed much with his opportunities, hitting just .200 with a pair of HRs. Weeks is barely viable even in deep AL-Only leagues and should be avoided if possible.
