Description: San Francisco shortstop Brandon Crawford didn't start in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers and probably shouldn't be in Thursday's lineup based on an unfavorable matchup.
Insight: He's been dealing with a tight hamstring. He's also hitless in 10 at-bats versus Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. Joaquin Arias will likely fill in at shortstop, but has shown little value with a bat in his hand.

Description: Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford won't be able to help fantasy owners much Sunday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Crawford has only tacked on one hit against Clayton Kershaw in 14 career at bats. Crawford is already in the midst of a 1-for-18 slump so starting him Sunday against Kershaw would just be adding insult to injury.
