Playing out of the DH spot, Mike Trout went 3-for-8 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and walk against the Red Sox on Saturday.
Trout ended an 0-for-10 slump in Saturday's marathon game, and is now slashing .299/.387/.575 with 26 home runs and 84 RBI on the season Although his stolen base production is down this season (12 SB), now that he is maturing into more of a power hitter in the two-hole, there aren't going to be as many opportunities for him as we have seen in the past. Either way he is still arguably the best fantasy option moving forward. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said the team is giving Marcus Mariota more chances to run the football.
One of the bigger surprises this fantasy season has been the lack of running by Mariota, considering he came from a read option offense in Oregon. However, the rookie quarterback has still been a solid fantasy option despite the lack of running, so this will give a slight boost to his value if he is able to churn out a few yards on the ground. It’s always a tough situation when quarterbacks run more as they open themselves up for injury, but the Titans must feel confident that Mariota will know how to protect himself when he decides to take off and run.
