Sheldon Neuse went 1-for-4 at the plate on Thursday, hitting a 2-run homer, and striking out once as the A's went on to lose to the Rangers in a 10-3 game.
Neuse hit what was just his fourth home run of the season on Thursday as both his home run total and his RBI total of 23 rank well below average. The Athletics' third basemen should be avoided in fantasy as his BA may seem okay sitting at .229, but the horrendous number that will keep owners away is his OPS which sits at just .598.
Sheldon Neuse went 1-for-4 at the plate on Monday night, hitting a solo homer on the way to the A's taking a 10-8 loss to the Rangers.

The A's third basemen is batting .240 on the season but is not seeing it translate into fantasy success as he has a below average OPS of .619. For now the 27 year old should not be used in fantasy even in the deepest of AL only leagues.

Oakland Athletics 2B Sheldon Neuse went 0-for-2 at the plate on Sunday, striking out once in the A's 5-2 loss to the Red Sox.
Neuse has seen himself drop into the territory of a player who needs to be dropped as soon as possible as he has failed to collect at least one hit in five straight games. The bigger issue is not just his failed contact but his OPS which is below average with a .597 and just two home runs in 49 games played this season.

The A's second basemen is in the rankings as a player who can be rostered but due to the recent slump he can be dropped if he is still rostered as he has a lower OPS of .613 and only 17 RBI through 43 games played.
