Latest Update Will Venable is not in the Padres' starting lineup Monday. Mon Sep, 22, 06:19 PM
At the dish, he's a great low-ball batter. Hits with good power, has good overall speed and the athleticism to play all three outfield positions. Has the ability to get red-hot with the stick.
Flaws: : Quite streaky, he gets into trouble when he starts chasing bad pitches. Could be more patient and disciplined at the plate (which would help him make more contact and get more out of his above-average talent).
Even if was in the starting lineup, doubt many fantasy owners would even care. Venable was a flash in the pan last season and came nowhere close to repeating those numbers this season.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Amazingly, both of Floyd's passes went for the exact same yards -- 49. He's Rivers' deep threat compliment to possession/YAC receiver Keenan Allen. He's going to have a ton of variance from week-to-week, but he and Phillip Rivers have been working together since 2004. It's safe to say theirs mutual trust & respect between the duo. He's a boom/bust WR4 for fantasy purposes.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Venable is now slashing .221/.288/.323 with seven home runs and 31 RBI through 375 at-bats this season, with his last home run coming back on August 24. Unless you are in a desperate situation fantasy owners should avoid this underachieving outfielder over the last week of the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Venable will likely miss at least a couple of games; he is droppable in all leagues.Analyst: Steve Pimental
