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 | Ryan Raburn out vs. Yankees

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 13:21:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 21, against the New York Yankees. 2B Daniel Descalso is serving as designated hitter and will bat sixth against Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Raburn on your bench accordingly. As for Descalso, he does not play enough to merit fantasy value, with only an occasional at-bat here and there.

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 | Trevor Story, Mark Reynolds resting

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:11:00 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth, while 2B Daniel Descalso is at first base and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Both Adames and Descalso are light-hitting middle infielders who don't attract much fantasy attention at all in any format. They are both desperation deep sleepers in DFS tonight against Maeda while hitting near the bottom of the batting order.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu not in Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 15:30:04 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is out of the starting lineup Sunday, June 5, against the San Diego Padres. 2B Daniel Descalso will bat eighth against Padres SP Luis Perdomo.

Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu was light-hitting over his last few games, so the team is giving him a night off after several games in a row in the lineup. Descalso doesn't play enough to carry any significant fantasy value, so you may want to look elsewhere.

Rockies | Day off for Mark Reynolds

Tue, 31 May 2016 15:05:58 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. 2B Daniel Descalso is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup is a nice one for Descalso, but the utility infielder barely moves the fantasy needle in any format. Don't let his .529 average (9-for-17) fool you into thinking he's not a light-hitting bat. Descalso is a deep sleeper in daily action based solely on the fact that he's playing at Coors Field tonight.

Rockies | Daniel Descalso fills in admirably

Tue, 31 May 2016 00:02:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies INF Daniel Descalso made the start Monday, May 30, against the Cincinnati Reds with 3B Nolan Arenado getting a day off. Descalso did his best Arenado imitation by going 3-for-5 with a double and four RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the solid stat line, Descalso doesn't play frequently enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado, Tony Wolters not playing

Mon, 30 May 2016 10:34:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado and C Tony Wolters are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Monday, May 30. INF Daniel Descalso will start at third base and is batting seventh, while C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso has received limited playing time this season but has gone 6-for-12 with two RBI. He is probably not the best option for owners should have have some value in daily fantasy leagues. Garneau is hitting only .200 this month and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Rockies | Daniel Descalso draws in as DH

Thu, 26 May 2016 13:25:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Daniel Descalso is batting eighth as the designated hitter against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in daily contests Thursday. Through his seven-year career, he has an unimpressive .239/.310/.339 slash line.

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.
