Jason has been helping fantasy owners since 1999 at RotoJunkie, Fanball, Baseball Prospectus and now here at RotoWire. He covers the Tampa Bay Rays at You can hear Jason weekly on many of the Sirius/XM Fantasy channel offerings throughout the season as well as on the Towers of Power Baseball Hour Podcast on iTunes. He was selected as the Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year by FSWA in 2013.

A player entered play Monday with a .201/.319/.386 slash line. That player was not Justin Smoak, Lyle Overbay, Gaby Sanchez, or Chris Carter. That line belonged to first-round selection Chris Davis.

Just one season after Davis posted a 1.004 OPS and slugged 53 home runs while driving in 138, he has hit 40 fewer home runs and driven in 96 fewer runs. In the history of fantasy busts, Davis' performance to date is on pace to be one for the ages. Last season, Davis was worth $43 in a 15-team 5x5 mixed league. This season, Davis' value to date is just $5. On the plus side, he has been worth as much as Carlos Gonzalez this season. On the downside, he has the same value as B.J. Upton does, and he has been worth less than the likes of Allen Craig, Juan Francisco, and Chris Owings.
