Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez gets a rare rest

Sat, 21 May 2016 12:47:26 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the lineup on Saturday, May 21, against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese. Gonzalez has played in 40 of the Rockies' first 41 games, starting in 39. 1B Mark Reynolds will bat fourth, OF Gerardo Parra will slide over from left to right field and hit sixth, while OF Ryan Raburn will replace Parra in left and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a rough stretch at the plate to say the least for CarGo, who is batting .186 with a solo homer - which also accounts for his only RBI - this month and hitless over his last four games to boot. Raburn is always a savvy DFS play against left-handers, while Reynolds is sporting a .328 average despite striking out at his usual heavy rate. Both Raburn and Reynolds are sensible low-cost daily options today given how inconsistent Niese has been this season.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra out vs. lefty

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:47:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals left-handed SP Jaime Garcia Tuesday, May 17. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn's fantasy value peaks in daily formats when he starts against left-handers. After all, he mashes them. This year he has a .364 average (8-for-22) with three of his five homers against southpaws. At this point, he could be a very popular DFS lineup addition in these instances. Either way, he's a good pick tonight.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra dropped to seventh

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:09:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra was dropped to seventh against a left-hander Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Parra has actually raked against lefties this year with a .343-1-7 line in 35 at-bats, and he's hitting .379 the last week. He's a good start against Robbie Ray.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon takes a seat

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:02:33 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, May 6. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and hitting sixth, with OF Gerardo Parra shifting over to center field. Also, 2B DJ LeMahieu moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is a notorious lefty killer, but MadBum isn't your typical southpaw on the hill tonight. It could prove difficult for Raburn to turn a profit in daily affairs. Parra becomes one to avoid in the tough lefty-lefty matchup. LeMahieu gains value with the move all the way up the order, but he should be seen as a contrarian play because of the matchup.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:05:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Nick Hundley are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Raburn is hitting sixth, 2B Cristhian Adames is hitting ninth and C Tony Wolters hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has an impressive .361-4-8 line in 36 at-bats. He's certainly worth the low-end flyer against Cesar Vargas. Adames is hitting .148 and isn't worth the stream in Petco Park. Wolters hasn't hit much since his first couple of games and isn't worth the start.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon activated, in lineup

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:23:48 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is back in the leadoff spot against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Friday, April 29. As a result, OF Gerardo Parra drops back down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to return Blackmon to starting lineups in all traditional leagues. Against a lefty in his first game back, though, you'll likely want to avoid him in daily formats and allow him to shake off some rust. Parra's daily value drops slightly with the move out of the leadoff spot, but he should remain a solid starter in all other fantasy formats.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra leading off

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:10:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra is batting first in the lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Parra is coming off a 4-for-5 performance with four RBI in the last game and has at least one hit in four of his last five games. He is hitting .279 this season and should be a fine starting option in most leagues.

Rockies | Four hits, four RBI for Gerardo Parra

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 18:21:42 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra went 4-for-5 with a double, four RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in a 12-10 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Parra has been bouncing all over the Colorado lineup, but he has just enough power and speed to be a useful option in most mixed leagues.

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 | Colorado has lineup overhaul

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:50:49 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story, OF Carlos Gonzalez, 3B Nolan Arenado and OF Gerardo Parra all moved up one spot to hit in the first four spots in the lineup. 2B DJ LeMahieu was dropped to No. 9.

Fantasy Tip: All five are worth daily considerations at their respective positions. LeMahieu is just 2-for-16 (.125) the last seven days, and he loses some luster hitting ninth. He's still worth starting at the right price against Kenta Maeda.
