Hitters to sit in Week 18
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/14) Whether because of poor matchups, unfavorable platoon splits or the fact they're just plain cold, Yan Gomes, Allen Craig, Josh Rutledge, Lonnie Chisenhall, Andrelton Simmons and Khris Davis are "sits" for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)

Find out the "why" for each in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

Still no power in sight for Allen Craig
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/15/14) One of the most frequent questions I have been asked in recent weeks is, "Is it time to drop Allen Craig?". Up until recent days, I have urged patience with the Cardinals' first baseman/outfielder, but with no apparent end to a power drought that has lasted a full season, I'm finally ready to change my tune.

Allen Craig is droppable in standard mixed leagues.

As my colleague, Scott White, mentioned in his most recent column, a playing time squeeze could conceivably be reason enough to dump Craig, but he's done very little over the past 12 months to earn regular playing time. Even before the Lisfranc injury that brought Craig's regular season to a premature end last year, he was struggling to hit for power, and he's been just as punchless this season. Craig ended April with a .147 Isolated Power, and it's dipped even lower in May and June.

Over the course of this season, Craig has posted a DJ LeMahieu-like 58 percent ground ball rate, and it's actually increased during the month of July. If Craig had taken a turn for the better, I could see keeping him rostered in standard mixed leagues, but there truly is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Even his ability to hit for average has to be questioned. In each of the three previous seasons, Craig hit above .300, but each of those seasons in retrospect looks a little fluky. In 2011, he hit .372 on ground balls, and in 2012, he overachieved a bit on flyballs with a .148 BABIP. Then last season, Craig posted a 28 percent line drive rate that was out of line with his history and with major league norms.

Even if you buy into Craig as a .300 hitter -- and that is looking more and more like a stretch -- you simply can't trust him to produce enough power to be used at either first base or in the outfield. Outside of deeper leagues, it makes sense to let him go.

Hitters to avoid in the second half
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/13/14) Like what you've gotten from Josh Harrison, Casey McGehee, Kurt Suzuki or Erick Aybar so far? Hoping for a rebound from Allen Craig? You might want to look into alternatives.

Check out my latest column to find out why.

Allen Craig breaks home run drought Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/14) Cardinals first baseman Allen Craig went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 6-5 loss to the Marlins Saturday.

The home run was the first for Craig since May 29 after enduring a homer-less month of June. He has hit .252/.303/.370 with seven home runs and 42 RBI in 330 at-bats.

Struggling Allen Craig out of lineup again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/14) Scuffling Cardinals outfielder Allen Craig has been benched for the second straight game Friday in San Diego.

Craig completed a disappointing first half of the season with six hits in 34 at-bats. His stat line of .252/.301/.362 is easily the worst of his career. The promotion of fellow outfielder Oscar Taveras from the minors could continue to limit Craig's playing time.
