Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez, Trevor Story return

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 11:57:28 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez and SS Trevor Story are back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Saturday, June 25. In addition, INF Daniel Descalso will bat sixth and play first base, while C Tony Wolters starts behind the plate and bats eighth. 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is batting .317 with five homers and 17 RBI through 79 June at-bats, while Story is hitting .282 with four homers and 13 RBI this month. Both players should be viewed as viable fantasy options this afternoon. Wolters is hitless in his last 12 at-bats and should be avoided in all formats, while Descalso is nothing more than an inexpensive flier option.

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.

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 23:22:32 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (wrist) left the game Thursday, June 23, after he tweaked is wrist on a swing in the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Car-Go is probably unlikely for Friday, and wrist injuries are tricky. Check his status Friday. Brandon Barnes could be a low-end consideration in his place.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez enjoys four-hit night

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 22:21:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez went 4-for-5 with a home run, three runs scored and two RBI against the New York Yankees on Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: That's five home runs and 13 RBI in the last 10 games for Gonzalez, who looks to be in the midst of a power surge -- he has already topped his RBI total from May and is just one homer short of matching that number as well. He's striking out a lot right now, which is hurting his average a bit, but it's a worthwhile trade off.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out vs. lefty

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 12:17:07 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jeff Locke Thursday, June 9. OF Gerardo Parra shifts to right field and is hitting seventh, while OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like a routine off day for Car-Go against the southpaw. Raburn is a notorious lefty killer and should be an excellent consideration as a value play in DFS play today. Parra, on the other hand, loses some luster today against the lefty with his move down in the order.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez homers twice

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 05:19:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hit his 12th and 13th home runs of the season Sunday, June 5, in a 10-3 win over the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is doing everything he did last year and then some. Gonzalez has even raised his batting average 37 points from the .271 mark he put up last year. Needless to say, this makes Gonzalez a must-play in all formats.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out vs. lefty

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 16:25:40 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Friday, June 3. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is hitting cleanup, while OF Gerardo Parra shifts to right field.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has been a lefty killer in his career, so you should be seriously considering him in daily formats. Parra is hitting a surprising .314 with a home run and nine RBI in 51 at-bats against lefties this year, but tonight isn't the night to run with him in any fantasy formats. Pomeranz has been very tough on lefty sticks this year with his devastating curveball.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez currently has a nine-game hitting streak and has seven multi-hit games during that span. He is a must-start option in all leagues as long as he is on his hot streak.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez in a funk

Mon, 23 May 2016 10:53:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez entered the game Monday, May 23, in a 2-for-32 slump in the last 10 games while batting .183 with a home run and one RBI in May. Manager Walt Weiss plans to keep Gonzalez in the middle of the order to let him work through his struggles. "I've had him fifth at times and he's bounced between third, fourth and fifth," Weiss said. "And last year when he was struggling, I hit him sixth at times. But it can turn around quickly with him, and he's still dangerous to the opposing pitcher and opposing team."

Fantasy Tip: Car-Go appears to be fully healthy, so this slump should pass. Avoid him in daily formats until he shows signs of life at the dish but continue using him in seasonal leagues.

Rockies | Trevor Story, Mark Reynolds out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 09:47:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio Sunday, May 22. INF Cristhian Adames will play shortstop and bat second, while INF Daniel Descalso will bat seventh and play first base. In addition, OF Carlos Gonzalez is back in the lineup, batting cleanup and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Adames is batting .300 (6-for-20) over the past month after beginning the season with just one hit in his first 18-bats, while Descalso is 3-for-6 with two RBI this year. Use them in daily fantasy lineups only if you're desperate for salary cap relief.
