After finishing second to Kris Bryant in NL Rookie of the Year voting, Matt Duffy is going to enter 2016 with some amount of name value, which is infinitely more than he had entering 2015. Is he worth it, though? Well, he certainly proved worthy of everyday duty when the Giants were basically forced to start him because free agent pickup Case McGehee was such a dud, but Duffy didn't perform as he was profiled to perform, which is always a little suspicious. He went from being a patient on-base type who could run a little in the minors to a contact-oriented gap hitter in the majors. He basically aspires to be Daniel Murphy, but he doesn't have Murphy's track record and it's not like Murphy is indispensible in Fantasy anyway. You can wait until late to draft Duffy in leagues that require a third corner infielder.
National League Rookie of the Year candidate Matt Duffy went 3 for 4 with a home run, two RBI, a steal and two runs scored in a 5-0 win for the Giants over the Dodgers on Wednesday. This performance brought Duffy's average to an even .300 and he continues to impress. With 12 homers, 28 doubles, 12 steals and 76 RBI, Duffy is becoming a must-own in every format. The problem is that he showed no power in the minors or in college and it's tough to gauge if this is sustainable next season.
Giants third baseman Matt Duffy went 1 for 4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a 5-4 loss to Oakland on Friday. The breakout season continues for Duffy, as he recorded his 11th homer and 73rd RBI on Friday. All the numbers across the board are great, as he has a .299 average and 11 steals to go along with hat nice RBI total.

Giants third baseman Matt Duffy has lost no time to a right ankle sprain that plagued him during the game Wednesday. He is in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

Giants third baseman Matt Duffy is day to day after spraining his right ankle during Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Cubs, according to MLB.com. Duffy hurt himself during a first-inning pickoff attempt at first base. Surprisingly, Duffy remained in the game and even had a stolen base. Manager Bruce Bochy was already down a pair of position players to injury, so if Duffy left the game, catcher Buster Posey might have played third base. Duffy underwent X-rays after the game, which showed no fracture. He is considered day to day. He is batting .317 with one triple, one home run, seven doubles, 13 RBI, 14 runs, six walks, 15 strikeouts and three stolen bases in 24 August games.
