Start and Sit Hitters for Week 17
Tony Dejak

The Tigers open Week 17 (July 21-27) in Arizona, which means they won't have use of a DH for three games. Their primary DH, Victor Martinez, is of course a Fantasy stud, but since he's not so capable of playing anything but first base anymore, they'll have to get creative to keep him in the lineup. They've played five games without a DH already this season and have managed to start Martinez in four of them, putting him behind the plate for two and shifting usual first baseman Miguel Cabrera over to third base for two. With that in mind, I'd plan to start Martinez this week, even with him still recovering from a back issue.
