Latest Update Rajai Davis is not in the Tigers starting lineup Tuesday Tue Jul, 22, 07:30 PM
Has tremendous speed and the range to play center field. Hits left-handers very well and steals bases with aplomb. Is comfortable in the leadoff spot. Can also play an outfield corner.
Flaws: : His walk/strikeout ratio can prevent him from seeing regular at-bats and thriving as a leadoff man. Doesn't have much power to speak of, either. Lacks consistency.
Despite being part of an outfield platoon, Davis has made the most of his situation in his first year with the Tigers, slashing .286/.326/.420 with six home runs, 32 RBI, 34 runs scored and 22 stolen bases through 245 at-bats. Considering the power bats that are slotted behind him in the Tigers starting lineup, he should be in starting lineups throughout all league formats when manning left field. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Although Davis was dropped to the bottom third of the Tigers lineup for the second consecutive game, he managed to be productive on Wednesday, having now logged six RBI over his last three games. Although his value has lessened since moving down the batting order, Davis still has enough power to compliment his above-average speed to make him a solid fantasy option as long as he continues to see regular at-bats.

Davis was the hero for the Tigers on Monday night, as he connected on a walk-off grand slam off of Sean Doolittle in the ninth inning. Although he is in a platoon situation with Torii Hunter back at full health, Davis is still worth starting when in the lineup, considering his talents on the base paths while usually manning the leadoff spot in the Tigers lineup.
