Description: Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist is just 4-for-36 (.111) against Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz
Insight: Zobrist is not a recommended daily fantasy play. He's batting .269 this season with 10 homers, 48 RBI, 80 runs and nine steals. Remember when he was close to being a 20-20 guy every season?
 
9/21/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist could be in for a rough day today (if he is in the lineup) against White Sox starter John Danks.
Insight: He is a career .111 hitter (2-for-18) against Danks, with seven strikeouts. Zobrist is not a recommended daily fantasy play.

Description: Tampa Bay second baseman Ben Zobrist is not in Friday's starting lineup versus Jarred Cosart and the Houston Astros.
Insight: Zobrist (.248, 5 HR, 15 RBI) is producing at his lowest level in years, so this is not the end of the world. He's a career 1-for-6 versus Cosart and just 4-for-23 over the past seven days. Looks like he can use a day off.
