Description: Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig is a career .533 hitter (8-for-15) with a pair of home runs versus Yankees left-hander Chris Capuano.
Insight: Craig's season has been a disaster, batting .217 with eight homers and 46 RBI in 448 at-bats. So much more was expected after last season's .315 with 13 HR, 97 RBI and .830 OPS. He does have a favorable matchup Friday night.
 
9/16/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig may have potential to break out of his season-long slump Tuesday night.
Insight: It is a bold statement, as Craig is just 7-for-59 since joining the Red Sox, and has simply not been the same player since his Lisfranc injury a season ago. However, he has fantastic numbers (.458 BA in 24 AB) against Pirates' starter Charlie Morton, and could be a great play in daily leagues tonight.
 
9/4/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig is 8-for-14 with two home runs and six RBI in his career against Yankees left-hander Chris Capuano.
Insight: Even with the solid numbers against Capuano, Craig has been in such a slump that it is hard to put him in your lineup at this point. He is 0-for-9 in his last three games and has just three hits in 28 at-bats since returning from the disabled list on Aug. 21.
 
8/25/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig is 6-for-10 with a pair of home runs versus Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ.
Insight: Craig wasn't hitting when he left St, Louis (.237) and hasn't hit in his first four games with Boston (.214), although he did knock out a couple of base hits Sunday in the series finale with Seattle. prehaps with this favorable matchup, it's the start of a turnaround.
 
8/21/2014 3:59:00 PM
Description: Red Sox activated outfielder Allen Craig from the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Craig will serve as the designated hitter in Thursday's series finale against the Angels. David Ortiz will take the day off. Boston will likely work Craig back into the lineup slowly due to his injury setbacks over the last year.
 
8/18/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Allen Craig will start his rehab assignment on Monday with Triple-A Pawtucket. The outfielder will likely spend two or three days with the minor league club.
Insight: Craig has been suffering from foot problems since late 2013 and until he proves he is healthy on the field, Craig does not hold much fantasy value. The outfielder is a career .291 hitter but is batting just .237 this season with St. Louis and Boston.
 
8/14/2014 11:22:00 PM
Description: Boston 1B/OF Allen Craig is expected to head out on a rehab assignment by the end of the week.
Insight: Craig hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batting .237 with seven homers, 44 RBI this year. Perhaps the change of scenery will help him break out of the slump when he finally returns to the lineup.
 
8/5/2014 1:52:00 PM
Description: Boston's newly-acquired 1B/OF Allen Craig has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to his ongoing ankle issues.
Insight: Craig hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batting .237 with seven homers, 44 RBI this year. Perhaps the change of scenery will help him break out of the slump when he finally returns to the lineup.
 
8/4/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Boston's newly-acquired 1B/OF Allen Craig was not in Saturday or Sunday's starting lineup after turning an ankle in Friday's final at-bat.
Insight: Craig hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batting .237 with seven homers, 44 RBI this year. Perhaps the change of scenery will help him break out of the slump.
 
8/2/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Boston's newly-acquired 1B/OF Allen Craig was not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Just a routine day off, though he did turn an ankle in his last at-bat Friday night. Craig hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batting .237 with seven homers, 44 RBI this year.
 
8/1/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Boston's newly-acquired 1B/OF Allen Craig is 7-for-11 (.636) versus Yankees starter Chris Capuano.
Insight: Craig hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batted .237 with seven homers, 44 RBI and a .637 OPS this year. Maybe this good matchup will help him get back to his normal level.
 
7/31/2014 12:51:00 PM
Description: Allen Craig is going to Boston along with Joe Kelly in St. Louis' trade for John Lackey.
Insight: Craig hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batted .237 with seven homers, 44 RBI and a .637 OPS this year. Joining the Red Sox won't help his immediate fantasy value. The trade will open up a spot in the Cardinals' everyday lineup for Oscar Taveras.
 
7/26/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: St. Louis right fielder Allen Craig is not only hitless versus Cubs starter Jake Arrieta, he has struck out five of seven times he faced the right-hander.
Insight: Craig has been a huge disappointment this season batting just .240 after posting a .315 average last season. Avoid this matchup. Update: Craig is not in the starting lineup.

Description: St. Louis right fielder Allen Craig is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays.
Insight: Oscar Taveras is starting in right field. Craig was a .312 hitter with an .863 OPS over the previous three seasons, but he's hit just .242 with seven homers, 44 RBI and a .648 OPS in 388 plate appearances this year. In his last 15 games, Craig's gone 7-for-51 (.137) with 12 Ks.
 
7/7/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: St. Louis right fielder Allen Craig is a career 11-for-21 (.524) against Pittsburgh right-hander Charlie Morton.
Insight: Craig's impressive season of a year ago is a distant dream as he's batting just .249 with seven homers and 43 RBI. Perhaps this matchup can get him going
 
7/5/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: St. Louis right fielder Allen Craig posted his first multi-RBI game in two weeks.
Insight: Craig's batting average is down 60 points from last season and he's unlikely to reach his 2013 total of 97 RBI either. June's .597 OPS is why he doesn't play everyday, but he did hit home run No. 7 on Saturday.
 
Cold7/3/2014 1:32:00 PM

The 29-year-old hit .307 or higher in each of the last three seasons, but he's batted just .252 with six homers, 40 RBI and a .663 OPS this year.
