Latest Update Dunn homers in A's win Mon Sep, 01, 09:21 PM
A rare mix of elite power and incredible patience at the dish, he's also durable and consistently produces homers and walks. Can play a corner outfield position, as well as first base.
Flaws: : Has a long swing and strikes out at huge rates. Doesn't make consistent contact with the ball, which hurts his batting average. Makes too many errors wherever he plays defense.
Dunn went yard in his Athletics debut today in the team's win. Dunn is known around the league for his great power, but everyone knows he is prone to strikeout a lot. Due to the low batting average and absurd strikeout totals, Dunn should remain out of your line up for that reason, as well as we are unsure how the A's plan to use him on a regular basis.Analyst: Colby Conway
Dunn's fantasy value is likely to hit the crapper if he lands with either team. He's not playing the field for the Giants and if he does, it will be sparsely at first base. In Oakland, he could see a start or two at first, but he is more suited to DH. However, the A's, with all their Moneyball thoughts and love for John Jaso and Derek Norris, might not want Dunn as anything more than just a bat off the bench. At least if he stays with the Pale Hose he'll likely retain his value.Analyst: Howard Bender
With Saturday's home run, Dunn has now reached the 20 home run plateau for the third straight season, and for the 12th time in his career. Although he is sitting on a four year-high .220 batting average there hasn't been much to talk about as far as fantasy value is concerned outside of the home run department. Unless you are in a points league that doesn't count strikeouts, Dunn should be on the waiver wire. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With lefty Chrius Capuano on the mound for the Yankees, the White Sox will sit Dunn and go with Jose Abreu at first base with Paul Konerko at DH.Analyst: Howard Bender
