Description: Boston backup second baseman Jemile Weeks will get a rare start Tuesday night.
Insight: Weeks has just three plate appearances in four games, so this isn't likely to be a regular thing. He's a career .259 hitter with a mediocre .679 OPS so his fantasy value is minimal.
 
8/21/2012 6:30:00 PM
Description: Oakland second baseman Jemile Weeks has been optioned to Triple-A Sacramento.
Insight: Weeks (.220, 2 HRs, 20 RBIs, 15 SBs) has been a massive disappointment after showing positive signs in 97 games last season (.303, 2 HRs, 36 RBIs, 22 SBs). He can be dropped in all formats.
 
8/15/2012 7:45:00 PM
Description: Oakland second baseman Jemile Weeks isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Kansas City.
Insight: Weeks is hitting a dismal .216 since the All-Star break, though amazingly, that's only a few notches worse than what he hit during the season's first half (.222). Weeks should be avoided in all fantasy formats.
 
7/18/2012 9:30:00 AM
Description: Athletics second baseman Jemile Weeks is a career .438 hitter (7-for-16) versus Texas starter Colby Lewis with three extra base hits and a 1.283 OPS.
Insight: Weeks is batting .300 over the past two weeks, but that's only brought his average for the season to the .223 mark. His best fantasy value is as a base stealer where he's stolen 12 while being caught five times.
 
7/8/2012 10:03:00 AM
Description: Athletics second baseman Jemile Weeks is a .176 career hitter against Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Weeks' only fantasy asset is his speed, but his 11 steals aren't enough to offset his .218 average. He should be avoided in most formats, but those who do own the second baseman should sit him down Sunday.
 
6/19/2012 8:16:00 PM
Description: A's second baseman Jemile Weeks has been playing through a leg injury.
Insight: Since Weeks (.222, 2 HRs, 10 RBis in 61 games) is a below average hitter, his fantasy value hinges almost entirely on his ability to steal bases. If Weeks' sore leg prevents him from stealing going forward, he'll become virtually useless in fantasy.
 
6/4/2012 11:21:00 AM
Description: Oakland second baseman Jemile Weeks is questionable for Monday's game against Texas with a left hip strain.
Insight: Weeks left Saturday's game with the injury, but did get into Sunday's game for one at-bat. He has started to get his act together, batting .351 over the past two weeks so fantasy owners are hoping this is a short stay on the bench.
 
Hot6/3/2012 12:56:00 PM
Description: Oakland second baseman Jemile Weeks will miss Sunday's tilt with the Royals because of a left hip strain.
Insight: It's a shame because Weeks (.229, 2 HRs, 5 RBIs) had just started to get going after an awful start to the season. Weeks is currently on a nine-game hitting streak and has batted .361 during the streak. Consider Weeks day-to-day.
 
6/2/2012 6:42:00 PM
Description: Jemile Weeks is day-to-day with a mild hip strain, according to Joe Stiglich of the Bay Area News Group.
Insight: According to Stiglich, Weeks said he's not too worried about the injury. Weeks extended his hitting streak to nine games on Saturday, but overall the second baseman has not had a good season at the plate, batting just .229 with a .654 OPS. His 10 stolen bases have increased his value somewhat but 53 percent of Yahoo! fantasy owners aren't willing to take the hit in other areas to get the stolen base boost.
 
5/22/2012 9:08:00 PM
Description: Jemile Weeks isn't starting Tuesday against the Angels.
Insight: Weeks has been unimpressive at the dish this year, batting a mere .199 while knocking in just five runs in 39 games. He's owned in a little under 60 percent of ESPN leagues at the moment.
 
5/14/2012 7:47:00 PM
Description: Jemile Weeks missed Sunday's game because of a sore ankle but he'll be in the lineup Monday against the Angels.
Insight: Weeks is hitting just .205 with 2 HRs and 5 RBIs but he's still owned in over half of all fantasy leagues because of his big stolen base numbers (leads the league with nine thefts).
 
5/6/2012 12:32:00 PM
Description: Jemile Weeks will not start on Sunday due to groin tightness.
Insight: Weeks missed last Wednesday's game with the same injury. He played 12 innings on Saturday so the team is resting him Sunday with an off day on Monday. The injury is not considered serious, which is good considering lower body injuries can be devastating to players who rely primarily on speed.
 
5/2/2012 6:50:00 PM
Description: Jemile Weeks is sitting out Wednesday's game in Boston because of groin tightness.
Insight: Weeks has struggled out of the gate in 2012 (.192, 2 HRs, 5 RBIs). Tonight he gives way to Eric Sogard, who is off to an equally tough start (.152, 2 HRs, 6 RBIs).
 
4/29/2012 1:36:00 PM
Description: Oakland second baseman Jemile Weeks is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Baltimore.
Insight: Weeks is off to a slow start, batting just .187 in 22 games this season. He's got plenty of speed to contribute if he can just get on base.
 
3/28/2012 11:42:00 AM
Description: Jemile Weeks went 1-for-5 with a stolen base in Oakland's Opening Day loss to Seattle in Tokyo.
Insight: Expect many lines just like this one. Weeks has the speed to swipe 50 bags in 2012. He stole 22 in just 97 games last season. The question is whether he'll be able to duplicate his .303 batting average in a full season.
