Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon had a team-record six hits and drove in five runs in the team's opening day victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 4. He finished 6-for-6 with three doubles and a two-run home run. Only former 1B Andres Galarraga had six hits in a game for the Rockies back in 1995. Blackmon finished a triple shy of the cycle from the leadoff spot, and he's making a strong case to be the everyday center fielder. He's off to a .563 (9-for-16) start to the season.
Fantasy Tip: Walt Weiss probably can't deny Blackmon's hot start, but Drew Stubbs, Corey Dickerson and Brandon Barnes will eventually factor in. Until Blackmon cools off, it's not a bad idea to pick him up and ride him out.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he plans to rotate players in center field, despite the fact that OF Charlie Blackmon has started there three times in the first five games. OF Corey Dickerson is another left-handed option, and OFs Drew Stubbs and Brandon Barnes swing from the right side. "We'll mix and match," said Weiss. "We have a lot of options. If a guy doesn't start, he can come into the game later as a pinch-hitter, pinch-runner or for defense."
Fantasy Tip: Blackmon is hot to start the season, but the other outfielders will see plenty of chances. Owning any of these options is tough to do in standard mixed leagues because of the uncertainty of PT on a daily basis.
