Rickie Weeks strikes out three times in loss

In Saturday's contest against the Red Sox, Weeks went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. He is now hitting .200/. 317/.674 with two homers and five runs batted in.

Fantasy Impact

Weeks was an alluring option after a great Spring but is playing himself out of time. He is a part time player already but if this play continues he is in danger of demotion or release. At this point, save for very deep leagues, he cannot be considered a fantasy option.

Rickie Weeks Jr. in the lineup Friday

Rickie Weeks Jr. will play 1B and bat fourth against the Blue Jays Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Weeks gets the start over Logan Morrison with lefty Francisco Liriano taking the hill for the Blue Jays. Expect Weeks to get semi-regular playing time against left-handed pitching in 2017.

Rickie weeks blasts two home runs

Rickie Weeks homered twice and knocked in five runs Wednesday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Weeks is starting more against lefties now and he's making the most of his opportunities. He's batting .247 with eight homers, five of which have come against southpaws.

Rickie Weeks a great value pick for Friday night

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 knocks in a pair of runs on Sunday

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.
