Rockies | Three-hit game for Brandon Barnes

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:32:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes went 3-for-4 with a double, run scored and RBI Monday, June 27, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes has a pair of three-hit games over the past three outings, and he is worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues and DFS as a salary saver option while hot.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out with an injury

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 14:21:44 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. OF Brandon Barnes is starting in left field and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Stash Gonzalez in all fantasy formats and check back for updates on the severity of his injury. He's got 48 runs, 15 home runs, 38 RBI and a .310/.355/.542 slash line, after all. Barnes is 7-for-41 with a .496 OPS this season, but the game is in Coors Field, so he is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Rockies | COL makes several lineup changes

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 08:30:44 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn, 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Sunday, June 19. INF Daniel Descalso will bat sixth and play first base, OF Brandon Barnes will bat seventh and play left field and C Tony Wolters will start behind the plate and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso is 13-for-32 (.406) with a double, triple, home run and 11 RBI through 32 at-bats this season and is an excellent source of salary cap relief in DFS. Wolters is worth considering as an inexpensive flier behind the plate but Barnes should be avoided in all fantasy formats today.

Rockies | Colorado sitting two starters

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:38:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ben Paulsen and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood Sunday, April 24. OF Gerardo Parra will start in left field, while OF Brandon Barnes will start in center field and is batting first. C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes is hitting .286 so far this season with three of his six hits being extra base hits. Barnes could be a cheap sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. Garneau has gone 2-for-7 at the plate this season but is not a great fantasy option.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen will not start

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 11:04:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, April 17. OF Gerardo Parra will start in left field and is batting fifth, while OF Brandon Barnes will start in center field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes has gone 4-for-12 so far this season but does not have any RBI at this point. Owners probably will be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Rockies | Two Rockies take a seat

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 15:18:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon and OF Gerardo Parra are out of the lineup Saturday, April 9, with OF Ryan Raburn hitting sixth and OF Brandon Barnes hits eighth. 2B DJ LeMahieu bumps up to the leadoff spot against left-handed San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn and Barnes aren't worth the start. LeMahieu hit lefties at a .294 clip the last three years, and he's worth the upper-echelon start.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon, Gerardo Parra sitting

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 10:10:36 -0700

Colorado Rockies OFs Charlie Blackmon and Gerardo Parra are out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Wednesday, April 6. OF Brandon Barnes is in center and hitting eighth, while OF Ryan Raburn is in left and batting sixth. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu moves up to the leadoff spot Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Raburn, who slashed .325/.415/.589 with all eight of his homers against lefties in 2015, to start often against southpaws. Because of his dominance of that handedness, he's an effective bargain option in daily games. LeMahieu is off to a fine start and gains added value in daily games today, as well.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra set for starting job

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 14:23:12 -0800

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra will be left with a starting spot to win in the outfield after the Rockies traded OF Corey Dickerson to the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, Jan. 28. Parra can play left with OF Charlie Blackmon in center field and OF Carlos Gonzalez in right. OF Brandon Barnes will be the fourth outfielder and fill in everywhere.

Fantasy Tip: Parra had career highs in batting average (.291), home runs (14) and runs (83) last year with the Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles. Coors Field was the best possible landing spot for him, and now he's in a starting role. He could improve on his solid 2015 season with the Rockies, and he should be a target in the later rounds of all mixed leagues.

Rockies | Brandon Barnes out for season?

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 17:12:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes (hamstring) could miss the remainder of the regular season after suffering a strained left hamstring Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) can be dropped in all fantasy formats. Kyle Parker ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) could receive increased playing time in left field but he is only batting .163 this season and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Rockies | Brandon Barnes departs early

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 22:54:58 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes (hamstring) left the game Wednesday, Sept. 23, against the Colorado Rockies due to a mild left hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: If Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is sidelined look for Kyle Parker ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) to see a few at-bats for FantasyScore players.
