    • Archer (10-12) earned the win over the Orioles on Saturday, allowing just two hits and two walks over five scoreless innings. He struck out six. Archer came into the game having dropped five consecutive decisions, so it was good to see him end the season with a win. There was a forearm scare near the end of the campaign, but it proved minor, and Archer ultimately surpassed 200 innings for a third straight season. While his heavy slider usage could catch up to him eventually, Archer has been extremely durable to this point in his career.

    • Rays' Chris Archer: Drops to 9-12
      By RotoWire Staff

      Archer (9-12) allowed six runs -- five earned -- on eight hits and a walk while striking out two batters through just 3.2 innings to take the loss against Baltimore on Sunday. Archer has now lost five consecutive games with 21 runs allowed over just 16.2 innings. It's been a discouraging stretch to finish the season and a potentially crippling one to fantasy owners that counted on the righty. Archer will look to right the ship in a repeat matchup against Baltimore at Tropicana Field in his final start of 2017.

    • Archer (9-11) gave up just two runs over six innings against the Cubs on Tuesday, but that was enough to land him in the loss column. He struck out six while allowing four hits and a walk. Considering that Archer's last three appearances had seen him give up 13 runs (11 earned) in a grand total of seven innings, this represents a big step forward for him even though it's his fourth consecutive loss. Archer's strikeout prowess is matched by few in the game, but his proneness to the long ball and occasionally suspect control have conspired to limit his fantasy value. The Rays' status as a sub-.500 team certainly isn't helping either.

    • Rays' Chris Archer: Drops third straight decision
      By RotoWire Staff

      Archer (9-10) gave up three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings in a losing effort against the Yankees on Wednesday. Archer has struggled in two starts since his return from a bout of forearm tightness, allowing nine earned runs on 15 hits over seven innings. The Rays have not given any indication that the forearm is still an issue. Assuming nothing surfaces on that front in the coming days, Archer will toe the rubber next week against the Cubs, and most owners will want to keep him active even after this recent rough stretch.

    • Archer (9-9) allowed eight runs, six of which were earned, on nine hits and one walk while striking out five across three innings to take the loss Friday against the Red Sox. Archer gave up a three-run homer to Mookie Betts in the first inning before getting tagged for five more runs before recording an out in the fourth inning. After suffering a forearm injury in his last outing, he certainly didn't have his typical type of performance, but if he checks out healthy, fantasy owners will hope that he gets on track quickly. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Yankees.
