Description: Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis went 1-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two RBI Tuesday.
Insight: Prior to Tuesday's game, Davis was 5-for-40 (.125) with 21 Ks in his last 13 games. Fantasy owners are in a tough spot with Davis. He's too good to drop and can go off at any time, but it's difficult to run him out there every day when he's hitting .196.

Description: Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis will serve as the team's third baseman Monday night with Manny Machado suspended for five games.
Insight: It will be his first start at the hot corner since 2011. If you league requires five games or less to be eligible this could be a huge break for Davis owners. Although not up to last year's standards, Davis still has 13 HR and 41 RBI in 66 games. He becomes much more valuable as a 3B.
